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:

  • The name of this movie "Afterlife" is the same working title that was used in the previous movie before it became Extinction.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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".
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
