Resident Evil: Extinction
(Resident Evil: Extinction)
It’s the end of the world….
The experimental T-Virus, concocted by the Umbrella Corporation, has been unleashed on the world, transforming the population into a scourge of shambling zombies with a taste for flesh.
With no safety in the cities, Carlos Olivera (Oded Fehr) and L.J. (Mike Epps), along with new survivors Claire (Ali Larter), K-Mart (Spencer Locke) and Nurse Betty (Ashanti), have gathered a group of survivors and taken to the road … traversing the empty desert highways in an armored convoy. What they seek is more of their kind - the living … the uninfected. What they find is the other constant presence in the desert: the Undead - and they’ll need dozens of guns, thousands of bullets and a pair of flamethrowers to protect themselves.
Hidden beneath an abandoned Nevada radio tower are the sleek offices and research facilities of the Umbrella Corporation. With access to Umbrella’s constant realtime satellite surveillance, Dr. Isaacs (Iain Glen) can keep constant tabs on the convoy … but he’s searching for the one person who not only is the key to a cure, but everything Umbrella’s experiments have been leading up to … Alice. Once held captive by the Umbrella Corporation, Alice was subjected to biogenic experimentation that left her genetically altered, giving her superhuman strengths, senses and dexterity. Mutating by the minute, and under constant threat of betrayal by her own Umbrella-engineered DNA, Alice has been shadowing the convoy, standing by to protect them, hoping to somehow usher them to safety.
The convoy decides to head north to Alaska -- their last, best hope for refuge from the Undead – but first they will have to make a pit-stop in Las Vegas to refuel……and stay out of Umbrella’s sightlines if they ever hope to reach it. Not only is Umbrella looking for Alice, but she is also looking for them… and she won’t stop until they’re shut down forever.The fight is only just beginning…
The third and final installment of the $100 million Resident Evil trilogy, Resident Evil: Extinction is again based on the wildly popular video game series. The first film established the world of the Resident Evil film franchise; the second film,Resident Evil: Apocalypse, found Alice (Milla Jovovich), L.J. (Mike Epps) and a renegade Umbrella officer named Carlos Olivera (Oded Fehr) escaping Raccoon City and Umbrella’s plot to extinguish them. Resident Evil: Extinction finds them loose in the Las Vegas desert, moving from place to place in an armored convoy, outrunning and outgunning the throngs of Undead that lurk in the wide, empty spaces that can no longer be called civilization.
“I think the strength of the Resident Evil movies is that they’re not just zombie movies,” says writer/producer Paul W.S. Anderson, the creative force behind the Resident Evil trilogy. “There are creatures in these films, more than just the Undead.There are also a lot of science fiction concepts in the movies, as well, so they’re bigger than just a zombie movie.”
