resident evil: the final chapter
Some critic once said of the Resident Evil series, “Who are these movies made for?” I’m not sure if they were looking for specific names or just a vague description, but I think the Resident Evil movies are made for people that want to kill two hours with big action, gruesome visuals and a loose thread of a mythology that vaguely represents the video games they’re based on. In the case of Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, it was made for movie fans that need closure. It appeals to those that assume the previous five movies were building towards something, but I doubt that this is where they thought it was going. (more…)
The sixth and final movie in the Resident Evil film series is but a few months away from its release early next year. Since 2002, Alice (Milla Jovovich) has been fighting the Umbrella Corporation and the zombies (and other monsters) they have created. Grossing more than $915 million over the past 5 films, the zombie apocalypse series based on the popular video games is coming to a close in Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, with Alice and the last bit of humanity trying to make a stand.
It feels like just yesterday that we brought you the 16 second teaser for the final chapter in Alice’s story, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, and it was. Today the 49 second International teaser hit the Internet with a lot more footage to look at. The Resident Evil franchise is an interesting one. Starting in 2002, the franchise has consistently made money at the box office while never topping a Rotten Tomatoes score of 33 from the critics. Milla Jovovich returns again as Alice, kicking ass and taking names in the post T-Virus world. (more…)
When we last left Alice and friends at the end of Resident Evil: Retribution, they were brought before Wesker at the White House in order to make one last stand in the name of humanity. From there, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter will begin, but the more compelling question is, where will it end? It would be insane to think that everything would end happily ever after, but it’s at least possible that some of the characters will survive till the bitter end. Might Alice be one of them? Might the following picture released on social media be a clue as to the fate of everyone’s favorite zombie fighter not named Daryl Dixon? (more…)
Anyone that’s seen enough video game movies knows that this particular genre is fraught with difficulties. Mostly they consist of bad scripts, lousy actors and directors with their heads up their asses. One of the better franchises is the Resident Evil series. They were nothing to write home about, of course, but at least they didn’t suck so bad that you wanted your money back. Unfortunately, even the little bit of goodness that showed up in the first of these films faded quickly as they got progressively worse. Now it looks like the powers-that-be are finally ready to pull the plug on the franchise and they’re going out with one final installment of Resident Evil. Read on for what details we’ve managed to find. (more…)
