[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. A lot of people died. The trouble was, they didn't stay dead. The computer that controlled the Hive was a state-of-the-art artificial intelligence: the Red Queen. The Red Queen ...

User Reviews

No plot, No story but lots of action. Simply a mindless action movie.
20 March 2018 | by RoboRabbit89See all my reviews

Let me put this simply as I can, this is a mindless action movie. I think Paul W.S. Anderson the director and writer was starting to run out of ideas and it shows, but I personally liked it because we had some of the same characters we already knew and I think it sort of works manly for the action.

The action scenes were great, the film makes no sense at all mind you, but mostly works because it's action scenes. Put simply, it's inconsistent in story for whatever reasons, I think some people that are fans of these films said there was more story from what I remember, but it was scrapped because "Sony" the studio I guess didn't like it, and they wanted it as a mindless action movie? I think?

Anyway, Milla is good as always for this series and I like her sexy costume that fits well on her sexy shape and makes her look like an S&M dominatrix which is awesome. Also it's just fun seeing her kick zombie ass in slow motion, from what I remember she is in some kind of facility of Umbrella's and she has to get out for whatever reasons, that's basically the plot.

Most may not like it but I did, for me, I'm an action fan and a fan of this series, it really hit the spot, this one delivers action unlike the others.

I give it a 6/10. Not great in story but satisfying in action. If your a fan of these films give it a look. It's the last decent one.
