As much as I am excited to see another Resident Evil film, I’m also a little bummed at the fact that its the “final chapter”. I have been a fan of the franchise ever since the first video game was released way back in the 90’s. I recall spending an entire weekend with virtually no sleep, locking myself in the bedroom, shooting and escaping zombies and playing some of the most epic boss fights in gaming of the time. I crawled out of my bedroom after a weekend of game play with monsters swimming in front of my eyes when I finally remembered I needed to eat.
I’ve enjoyed the Resident Evil films as much as I did the games. I’ve considered getting a tattoo of The Umbrella Corporation, the corrupt, malevolent international pharmaceutical company. I’m a fan girl for Milla Jovovich and her character Alice, the protagonist of the story (even if it feels like each of the films start off in exactly the same way, with Milla naked covered only by the tiniest scrap of white material).
It’s awesome to see Milla return as Alice alongside Ali Larter as Claire Redfield, who lead a convoy of survivors in Resident Evil Extinction and he also stared in Resident Evil 5: Afterlife. I’ve always thought its a shame they lost Michelle Rodriquez as the character Rain Ocampo all the way back in Resident Evil 1.
The final film in the series is due for release in 2016 and follows on immediately after the events of Resident Evil: Retribution. Alice must return to where the nightmare began, Raccoon City. The Umbrella Corporation is at it again, preparing for another strike against the remaining survivors of the zombie apocalypse. Like its predecessors, Resident Evil:The Final Chapter promises to be another action packed battle against hordes of the undead and horrid mutant monsters.
Now hopefully there will be a spin off or two.
