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.

Alice awakes at home with her daughter Becky and her husband. But soon she realizes that she is actually in an Umbrella Corporation's underground facility. Out of the blue, the computer security system shuts-down and Alice flees to the central control room of the facility. She meets Ada Wong, who works with Albert Wesker, and she learns that a five-man team has been sent by Wesker to rescue them.

The idea of cloning the umbrella soldiers may have stemmed from a comment made in an audio commentary of the original Resident Evil (2002) film. Michelle Rodriguez said that Colin Salmon should be brought back in a sequel as a clone. Ultimately, this came true for Salmon as well as Rodriguez and Oded Fehr. See more »
In Resident Evil: Afterlife J-Pop Girl is shown wearing high heels and she also has a purse around her body. But in Retribution when she is fighting Alice her purse disappears and she has no high heels or shoes on at all. However, it is nowhere implied that the recreation had to be an exact copy. See more »
My name is Alice. I worked for the Umbrella Corporation, the largest and most powerful commercial entity in the world.

In the opening credits sequence, those who are portraying characters from the video-game series, have their roles listed alongside their names. Everyone else (i.e. Milla Jovovich and co.) simply have their names listed. See more »
I have always loved the RE series, so as much as I hate to say it, this movie was kind of a let down compared to the rest. Most of the acting was terrible and very stiff and the characters had no real depth, I didn't even care when anyone died because they barley spoke or showed any emotion. Even with Alice I got a different vibe from the previous movies, she was a lot more stiff and her personality didn't really show. There were no real plot twists or "wow" moments for me. I felt like I was waiting the entire time for something awesome to happen and then it was just over.
The action parts were good, but I think they focused way too much on making everything slow motion and a lot of it ended up looking cheesy. Although this one wasn't the best I'm still optimistic for the next one!
