While still out to destroy the evil Umbrella Corporation, Alice joins a group of survivors living in a prison surrounded by the infected who also want to relocate to the mysterious but supposedly unharmed safe haven known only as Arcadia.
In a world ravaged by a virus infection, turning its victims into the Undead, Alice (Jovovich), continues on her journey to find survivors and lead them to safety. Her deadly battle with the Umbrella Corporation reaches new heights, but Alice gets some unexpected help from an old friend. A new lead that promises a safe haven from the Undead takes them to Los Angeles, but when they arrive the city is overrun by thousands of Undead - and Alice and her comrades are about to step into a deadly trap.Written by
The fact that Japan is one of the last areas on the planet to be infected provides a viable explanation as to why the main headquarters of Umbrella would take refuge in Tokyo. See more »
(at around 24 mins) After Alice lands in what she thinks is Arcadia, and after her video-log, while investigating the "mysterious figure" she readies both her revolvers and points them right at the camera. There are no bullets in the chambers. Also, even if the chamber behind the barrel of each gun WAS loaded, when she pulled the trigger, the cylinder would revolve and the hammer would strike the next (and obviously empty) chamber.

My name is Alice. I worked for the Umbrella Corporation in a secret laboratory developing experimental viral weaponry. There was an incident. A virus escaped. Everybody died. Trouble was, they didn't stay dead. This was the start of an apocalypse that would sweep the entire world. The men responsible for this disaster took refuge underground and continued to experiment with the deadly T-Virus. They felt secure in their high-tech fortress. But they were wrong.

where did it all go wrong? This was not the best game adaption to begin with, for me silent hill is still the closest game to movie effort. But I really love the first 3 resident evil movies, the third being my personal favourite so when I seen a trailer a few months ago for afterlife I could not wait to see this. Maybe that was the problem, expectation.
I have read some other reviews on this site and I am puzzled, maybe I missed the point or I'm being to hard on the film? But for me the games and the previous 3 films had all being about atmosphere: this has none at all. It just rambled along until the next "slow-motion just for the sake of it" scene, of which there are a lot (id guess 20mins of the film is slow motion).
I just don't know what happened to the series, as I said I am a huge fan of both the games and the films, barred this one of course, and can't understand how people can be so happy with this poor rip off of a film. There are so many direct rip off bits from the matrix, the obvious ones being the trinity style jump out the window from the trailer and even Wesker looks and moves like an agent.
But this said, the easiest job in the world is being a critic. I am just so disappointed that it turned out like this, but I will just cross my fingers and hope against hope the nest one is a lot lot better.
