“My name is Alice, and I remember everything.”
“Resident Evil: Apocalypse” picks up where “Resident Evil” ended—with Alice (Milla Jovovich) wandering the streets of Raccoon City. Alice teams up with Jill Valentine (Sienna Guillory) and Peyton Wells (Razaaq Adoti), who have been locked inside Raccoon City due to the outbreak of the T-virus. Angela Ashford (Sophie Vavasseur), daughter of Dr. Ashford (Jared Harris), is missing; Dr. Ashford offers Alice and team escape from the city if they will find Angela and bring her safely to him.
The action in this movie switches back and forth between Alice and the S.T.A.R.S. (Special Tactics and Rescue Services) team members Carlos Olivera (Oded Fehr) and Nicholai Sokolov (Zack Ward). Alice is being hunted by a moaning monster named Nemesis. The S.T.A.R.S. members are searching for survivors and eliminating anyone infected with the virus (or becoming infected themselves).
This action-packed movie is loaded with violence, much profanity (mostly the “f” word—at least 14 occurrences), mild nudity and profane use of the Lord’s name.
“Resident Evil: Apocalypse,” though entertaining, does have its flaws, including some bad camera work during fight scenes and bad casting choices (Sienna Guillory and Mike Epps)—though expected since the movie is all about the action—and excessive profanity.
