Resident Evil recap

Over the course of five Resident Evil movies, we still haven’t learned a whole lot about Alice (Milla Jovovich). She’s a character driven more by action, but her actions often don’t define her in any substantial or tangible ways. She’s often shooting her way through these movies — mostly surviving, rarely evolving.

The character is always on the move. She’s nearly always driving the story, creating more action than waiting to react. Alice rarely stops to doubt her missions or to self-reflect or chit-chat. This character and these movies aren’t prone to slowing down and stopping, unless it’s for exposition. Perhaps you’ve forgotten some of that exposition and pertinent information after all these years since the last installment in the series, 2012’s Resident Evil: Retribution.

If you want to brush up on the events of the franchise before seeing director Paul W.S. Anderson‘s Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, then give our Resident Evil recap a look.

resident evil the final chapter clip

When the Resident Evil series was one single mediocre movie, I didn’t care for it. When it was two movies, it could barely hold my interest. And then there were three movies. And then four movies. And then five. And now, sixth movie in the series, titled Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, is due out at the end of the month and damn it, these silly movies have won me over. As the number of films has increased, as their internal logic and mythology has gotten increasingly convoluted, as it became increasingly clear that these movies have a very specific lunatic identity, I began to appreciate them. They’re not good, but man, I sure like talking about ’em.

So yeah, I can behind the newest clip from the movie, which features series star Milla Jovovich battling Game of Thrones star Iain Glen on top of a giant armored vehicle that’s being pursued by a horde of zombies. Sure. Why not?

Resident Evil The Final Chapter Trailer - Milla Jovovich

Much like the long life of the Fast and Furious franchise, it’s hard to believe that early next year we’ll be getting the sixth film in the Resident Evil franchise. While the film series based on the video games of the same name hasn’t really found the same massive audience after starting back in 2002, there are still plenty of fans eager to see how it all ends.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter appears to be pulling out all the stops this time as a new international trailer shows even more absolutely batshit insane action sequences featuring hordes of zombies, giant winged-creatures, and villainous corporate executives talking menacingly in board rooms at the Umbrella Corporation headquarters. It’s exactly what you would expect from director Paul W.S. Anderson‘s latest contribution to the franchise.

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter trailer

Earlier today we saw a trailer for the next addition to Screen Gems’ Underworld series. The studio has now released a trailer for another entry in their Resident Evil franchise. The 14-year-old series may finally come to a close with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, but we’ll have to wait and see if it has a real ending, not some winky setup for another installment. The previous Resident Evil film ended with a tease of a battle at the White House, but that’s not the story of Resident Evil: The Final ChapterPaul W.S. Anderson‘s film begins there, but we won’t see much of Alice (Milla Jovovich) in the nation’s capital.

Below, watch the Resident Evil: The Final Chapter trailer.

resident evil the final chapter trailer

I didn’t always have a soft spot for the Resident Evil movies, but I developed one over time, especially as it became clear that this trashy, silly, and hilariously convoluted series was just going to keep going and going and going. Even when they’re at their least comprehensible, these films have been a strong showcase for Milla Jovovich as an action hero and watching her find new and bloody ways to combat armies of monsters, mutants, and zombies has, more often than not, been worth the price of admission.

Now, the series looks to be coming to an end with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter and the first trailer has arrived. And yet, let’s not take that subtitle too literally yet – you’d need a few hands to count the number of franchises that continued beyond the entry that contained “final” in the title.
