With Milla Jovovich, Iain Glen, Ali Larter, Eoin Macken, Shawn Roberts, Fraser James, Ruby Rose, William Levy, Lee Joon-gi, Ever Anderson
Written & Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson (based on the Capcom video game characters)
[ Access my article here from ComingSoon.net, featuring my interviews with writer / director / producer Paul W.S. Anderson, star Milla Jovovich and producer Jeremy Bolt, from the set of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter ]
Anderson and Bolt's production partnership has been a successful one for around two decades with a host of exciting movies resulting from it, including their first foray into video game adaptation with Mortal Kombat, the cult fan fave outer space horror of Event Horizon, a CGI boosted re-imagining of Dumas' Three Musketeers, and the historic disaster spectacle & romantic drama Pompeii. But, their crowning achievement is the mammoth 6 chapter video game adaptation franchise Resident Evil, which 15 years ago helped to bring back the zombie genre (but with a kick-ass action and sci-fi punch). Up until the 5th chapter, the movies crossed the billion dollar gross mark.
This sixth and (reputed) last chapter aims to wrap up all the loose ends and reveal all about Alice and the Umbrella Corporation (Umbrella being the evil corporate entity responsible for engineering a deadly virus, turning those infected into ravenous zombies, and across one and a half decades and half a dozen movies our heroine Alice has been fighting them and the many villains & creatures they've spawned).
(This time around the deadly Red Queen computer is played by Anderson and Jovovich's young daughter Ever)
It is difficult for me to pick the best of the Resident Evil movies - they all make part of the whole and while I don't feel this is the top one in the batch, it is a very important component as a closing chapter, bringing it all together to wrap up this exciting series (see links for reviews of the first 5 movies, games and soundtracks below).
