Resident Evil: Apocalypse
Tagline: My name is Alice and I remember everything.
The plot involves Alice, who wakes up in the middle of Raccoon City hospital and walks outside only to find overturned cars and destruction as far as the eye can see. The movie starts off with the order's being given to reopen the hive - the Research and Development complex built by The Umbrella Corporation for research in biological products (bioweaponry), and other projects. The Umbrella Investigation Team is quickly overrun and zombies and other research projects are let loose on the citizens of Raccoon City. Evacuation teams are sent into the city to evacuate all important personnel - especially researchers. However, the daughter of the doctor that invented the T-Virus becomes trapped after an accident. After this, Umbrella sets up a containment zone by building a giant wall around the city to prevent the T-Virus from escaping the city and spreading through the country. When the T-Virus gets too close to the only exit, the orders are given to close the gate and to order all the refugee's away or else they will be shot. This is the setting where the rest of the story sets off. There are 4 different groups of people trying to escape the city that will come together in the end. First, there is Alice, a normal person that was in Resident Evil. She was Head of Security and escaped the hive before contain and sealing protocols of the hive came into effect. However, after their escape she was put into the hospital and experimented on - by injecting the T-Virus, and then the antidote into her body and watching what mutations would occur. Rather than just changing her body, the virus melded with her body and she became bonded with it. On a cellular level, her evolution continued throughout the movie - giving her super strength, reflexes, intelligence, as well as the ability to heal and recover from death.
We see Jill Valentine, a cop that had been put on probation walk into the police station, kill the zombies and tell everyone to get out of the city. She becomes trapped when the gates close, and goes with her friend Payton Wells (another cop), and Terri Morales (a reporter) and tries to find a safe place to hide from the undead. They hide in a church, where they are set upon by lickers - huge animals mutated from something that kill some of their victims using their tongue and then teeth. Terri, Jill, and Payton run out of bullets when suddenly Alice comes through the window and kills all of the lickers.
Dr. Ashford, realizing that his daughter Angie is trapped, and may not be dead, decides not to evacuate with the rest of Umbrella - and searches the camera system for survivors after finding his daughter's location signal at a high school. He contacts any group he can find, and they all set off to find the girl and their ticket out of the city.
We also see Carlos, and his partners fighting off hordes of undead in various corners of the city. They are abandoned, and slowly forced back until only Carlos, Alexi, and Yuri make it out through an alley way. They follow a helicopter which drops some weapons into the middle of the city, for the recently awakened Nemesis. Offscreen, they get the call to find the doctor's daughter.
Then there is L.J. He's driving around the city, hitting random undead and having a hell of a time until he crashes into a car because he was distracted. He walks towards a mall and a sniper takes a shot at him. We find that the sniper just killed a zombie that would have ended his life. He walks into the middle of the mall and finds himself surrounded by 13 S.T.A.R.S. team members aiming weapons at him. He is then told to take a shotgun - after which he exclaims - "Player please, mine are custom." and pulls out 2 gold plated guns.
Nemesis walks towards the mall, and is fired upon by the sniper and by the S.T.A.R.S. members, - after which the order is given for him to kill all S.T.A.R.S. members. L.J. tries stands in the same spot hoping he doesn't die, after which he is surrounded by 13 dead S.T.A.R.S. members.
Alice and group are walking on a bridge, where she see's Nemesis, and he fires on Jill because he still has orders to kill S.T.A.R.S. members. Her friend Payton is killed, and Jill and Terri make a run for it. Alice tries to fight him but is forced to run because his weaponry is superior to anything she has. After they escape - they drive in the car, pick up L.J. and talk to Dr. Ashford. He lets them know that the city will be nuked to prevent the virus from spreading. He says that he'll give them an exit, but only if they find his daughter. Alice using Terri's recorder - tells her story, about the hive, and what's happening in the city.
Alice and group set off to the school, where they all pick a floor and search for the girl. Terri thinks she has found her, when suddenly all the kids in the room come out and start biting her to death - her video camera captures her death.
Jill finds Angie, and she see's the blood stains - after which the kid tells her its better not to go in there, she's seen what they do to live people.
They walk around the school when suddenly an undead dog attacks them. This is killed by Alexi. After Alexi is done, he becomes cocky, but gets attacked by a dog. The girl runs. A second dog that he could not hold at bay comes and kills him.
They run into the kitchen. Jill tries to light the gas stoves on fire, but her matches go out. Alice then tosses her cigarette through the hole in the door that the dog just made, and it kills all the undead in the kitchen.
Angie can sense that Alice is infected, and Alice senses that Angie is infected. Alice finds out that Dr. Ashford created the T-Virus and the antidote, so his daughter can walk. Umbrella then took his research and used it for different purposes. Both of them are infected, but they've been exposed to the antidote. Alice takes the antidote and injects everyone else with it and they get ready to find out where the exit is.
The rest of the people regroup, go to the phone, and they are given directions to where a helicopter is parked. It is not meant for them, so they will have to take it by force.
They take out the guards, and when they try to start up the helicopter they are surrounded by guards.
Alice is then told to fight Nemesis, because Umbrella needs to find out which of the 2 is better, Alice or Nemesis. Alice refuses, which leads to Major Cain killing Dr. Ashford. Cain tells her to fight, or he will kill somebody else.
In the fist fight that follows, they knock each other around, but both of them have unlimited stamina, so Nemesis takes a chunk of steel of a building and tries to decapitate Alice. Cain gives her a fighting stick, and the two keep fighting. When Alice gets the upper hand, she impales Nemesis and remembers who Nemesis was - the brother who tried to find his sister in the hive - in the previous movie - and she is so sorry what she has done.
With the fight over, she's told to leave everyone else, and to come with Umbrella - because she is evolution, with unlimited potential. When she says no, fighting occurs, with Nemesis (after being called a biological dead end, not worthy of life) picking up his guns, and blasting any Umbrella personel to bits. Nemesis is later crushed by a helicopter he helps shoot down with his rocket launcher. The survivors - Alice, Jill, Carlos, Angie, the pilot, and L.T. then get on the helicopter, and they push Cain off just as hordes of zombies come, which devour him after he finds out he has no bullets left to kill himself.
The nuclear missile comes flying in, destroying City Hall, and from the helicopter, they see the wave of destruction about to come upon them. Something from the helicopter slips, hurling itself towards the girl, when Alice jumps inbetween them and is impaled - and as she is bleeding to death, the helicopter crashes.
2 days later? - The Umbrella team has found the helicopter, with no survivors except Alice. She is dead. She wakes up with the voice of a girl in her head, telling her to wake up. She opens her eyes, and finds herself in a water tank with various tubes and needles coming out of her body. The tank drains, and she see's her surroundings but seems to have no memory.
She finally realizes where she is and says the tag line "I'm Alice and I remember everything." After which she kicks the ass of everyone in the room. And exits, she then walks through the corridor and kills a guard that was watching her through the security monitor just by thinking about him. On the outside, guards are waiting, her friends come in disguise, and she escapes - because Dr. Isaacs let her escape and tells his assistant to activate program Alice.
In the end, Alice sets her sights on the Umbrella Corporation to get revenge for what they have done; this sets the stage for the third and last movie, Resident Evil: Afterlife which is set to release in 2006.
