Trivia

The idea of using environmental simulations references the 4th game based novel Resident Evil Underworld, where there were 4 environmental simulations; a forest, a desert, a mountain, and a city. See more »

Goofs

Even if coins could be fired from a 12 gauge shotgun, their ranges and ballistic impacts would be a mere fraction of traditional shotgun ammunition. If anything, they would be wildly inaccurate farther than a few feet, they would likely impact targets along their faces rather their penetrative edges and they would likely shatter from force of the initial shot.

[first lines]
Alice: My name is Alice. I worked for the Umbrella Corporation, the largest and most powerful commercial entity in the world. I was head of security at a secret high-tech facility called the Hive, a giant underground laboratory developing experimental, viral weaponry. There was an incident. A virus escaped.

Very disappointed in this movie and it's director...
16 September 2012 | by gysgtjanssenSee all my reviews

I was very excited to see this movie as I have been a fan since the first. To say the least I was let down by this movie. It had no suspense or drama and was all shoot outs and fights. I understand that this is considered a sort of action movie and guns and fights are what those make up...however this movie had no "meat" to it. It was completely visual. I never felt the danger...I was never even close to the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next...it was very predictable. During the second half of the movie people in the theater were laughing at the action scenes and how ridiculously stupid they were. I left the theater very disappointed with a critical opinion of the movies director. If you still want to see it I recommend waiting for it on DVD so you don't waste the price of a theater ticket...
