As the title says the closing chapter of the Resident Evil movie saga brings its fans a conclusion to this 6 part movie franchise or until it gets rebooted. As the fans usually receive a new installment every 2 to 3 years. For me the movie franchise has never really disappointed and always had a well-balanced combination of story, action, horror and cinematography. Whether you are a fan of the games or this genre of movies or both it takes the fans skillfully back to the place it all began without looking stale.
The T-virus unleashed by the evil Umbrella Corp. has spread to every corner of the globe, infecting the planet with zombies, demons and monsters. Alice (Milla Jovovich), a former Umbrella employee turned rogue warrior, joins her friends on a last-chance mission to storm the company’s headquarters located deep underneath what used to be Raccoon City. But the Red Queen (Ever Anderson) knows that Alice is coming, and the final battle will determine if the rest of mankind lives or dies.
This movie is exactly what you would expect if you are familiar with the franchise and does not hold back anything even though it could have been underwhelming as it only needed to bring the story to a close. Loved the action sequences which goes from focusing on the main character to a wider cast then drawing back to the main story amongst the echoes of Raccoon city.
Plot twists are minor and predictable which did not surprise me as the story is punctuated by moments of terror and action. Eerie and explosive, nostalgic at times yet still offers us something new. You might just want to also revisit the previous 5 movies if you missed out on watching them.
