Faith in something greater than ourselves enables us to do what we have said we'll do, to press forward when we are tired or hurt or afraid, to keep going when the challenge seems overwhelming and the course is entirely uncertain.

[edit]

Synopsis: After a massive one-woman attack on Umbrella Corp. in Asia, Alice (Jovovich) is left without her T-cell power boosts. She then tries to meet back up with her friends in Alaska, only to find that what she thought would be a safe haven turns out to be only an abandoned air field.


Reaction: Not great, but after the first three, you basically know what you're getting into with this one and it delivers competently.

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • There's a possibility that Wesker survived the aircraft explosion at the end of the movie: as we see debris falling in the distance, there is something that could be two pieces of the aircraft, but does look very much like a person descending with a parachute.
  • The opening scene in the movie is quite symbolic - all people are wearing umbrellas in the rain except the zombie girl. "Umbrella" is also the name of the corporation who is responsible for the creation and spread of the T-Virus, on which the main plot of the [Resident Evil] series is based.
  • Wentworth Miller jokingly admits he was nervous about his character, Chris Redfield, being similar to Michael Scoffield when his first lines were in a prison and his first lines are "I know a way out of here".
  • With a gross of around $300 million worldwide, the film is the highest-grossing Canadian film and highest-grossing entry in the [Resident Evil] film series.
  • This marks the fourth time Paul W.S. Anderson has written the script for a [Resident Evil] movie. He has written all of them since the first one. Anderson also becomes the first person to direct more than one [Resident Evil] movie.
  • Features plot elements from Biohazard Code: Veronica and Biohazard 5.
  • Claire Redfield wears a red vest, her primary outfit from her game appearances.
  • In past [Resident Evil] movies, Alice has yellow-blond hair with some of Milla Jovovich's natural brown color, but in this movie, Alice has no yellow-blond hair but entirely brown.
  • The name of this movie "Afterlife" is the same working title that was used in the previous movie before it became Extinction.
  • This is the first live-action movie based on a video game to be in 3-D. Also the first [Resident Evil] film to be released in IMAX.
