Trivia

(at around 20 mins) When Alice lands at the Alaskan airfield filled with planes, there was in reality only 7 planes in the shot. The rest were added in digitally. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 6 mins) While Claire is fighting with the Axeman, he chases her only to have her do a wall run and vault back over his head. This would see her land 10-12 feet behind him. But when the action continues Claire starts running from the far end of the shower room, a good 30 feet away. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Alice: [narrating] 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.

Crazy Credits

SPOILER WARNING: After about a 1 minute or so of end credits there comes a surprise scene with Jill Valentine, even though Sienna Guillory receives screen credit before the scene appears. See more »

Alternate Versions

Due to German regulations and FSK attitude towards violence, a second version was created during post production to secure a more commercial "Not under 16" rating. This version removes or reduces some of the more violent scenes and gore effects (less blood splatter etc.). It was also used in Austria and the German-speaking regions of Switzerland. However, the DVD/Blu-ray release features the uncut version and is rated "Not under 16" as well. Since the FSK guidelines for home media are stricter than for theatrical releases, the cut theatrical version is thus rendered totally unnecessary. See more »

Alice (the eternal Mila Jovovich) is back and in multiple copies. Her prime target is the Umbrella Corporation and the now T-virus enhanced Albert Wesker (Shawn Roberts). After a full frontal attack the Umbrella base is left destroyed, but the whole batch of Alice clones get blown sky-high, when Wesker manages to fly away unscathed and detonate the plant. Conveniently for the movie the original Alice survives unscathed as a castaway on-board the plane. During a skirmish with Wesker Alice gets injected with a antidote, that turns her back to being human (but somehow she still manages to survive a terrible plane crash unharmed and keeps her over-the-top fighting abilities largely intact). With Wesker dead and Umbrella disposed of Alice returns to the States to search of her friends, who left for sanctuary in Alaska, only to disappear in mysterious circumstances.

In general a much improved instalment of the series and if anything the whole series remains enjoyable, if uninventive. In this part Anderson actually outdoes himself and instead of thinking up something original he starts borrowing scenes from other movies. Wesker looks and fights like Neo's twin brother, the new zombies bring to mind "Blade 2", whilst The Executioner has a disturbing familiarity to Pyramid Head of the Silent Hill franchise. Nonetheless some of the scenes are very memorable with the combat with The Executioner a real highlight for the movie (especially given the abrupt ending of the final fight).

There may be a bit too many generic elements with this movie, but that has never stopped the franchise from being mindless slash-em-up fun. Even if a somewhat weakly scripted one. Also Alice remains a very likable heroine, so no matter how bad the script if she gets proper screen time and a couple of intriguing fights, than the movie just never seems to feel like a waste of time.
