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.
Paul W.S. Anderson
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. However, the Red Queen sends Jill Valentine and Rain to hunt them down.Written by

Las Plagas is a parasite in the video games (first seen in Resident Evil 4 (2005)) that takes behavioral control of the host it infects. The infected humans do not become zombies and retain their normal appearance. However, its depiction in the film is different, since in the games it doesn't typically grant immunity to injuries. There is one exception though, a type of enemy called the Regenerador that has multiple parasites implanted; it can quickly heal and regenerate, but it looks only vaguely human in the games.

I have enjoyed previous installments of this franchise and went to see this most recent entry in 3D. Not having seen anything in the new 3D format I felt this action movie would be the one to showcase this technology. I was wrong. I found the 3D effects were most prominent on the periphery of the screen and distracted from the foreground action.
As far as the film itself, little plot development to the franchise theme, pretty vapid dialog (when there is any dialog)and no character development.
I enjoy action movies but can do without 90 minutes of frenetic action that does not really forward a story.
Hollywood - Please return to story telling without all the unnecessary gimmicks.
