Storyline

Alice awakens from a terrible sleep to find her worst fears realized--the bloodthirsty Undead, which she and the now-annihilated squad of elite military fought to destroy, have been unleashed on the city that surrounds the secret facility of the Umbrella Corporation. Discovering she was an Umbrella experiment, Alice has been bio-genetically enhanced with new strengths, senses and dexterity--and she will need them. In the heart of the ravaged Raccoon City, a small group of uninfected people, including Jill Valentine, a recently demoted member of Raccoon City's elite Special Tactics and Rescue Services team, and Umbrella Corporation Security Officer Carlos Oliveira, fight for their lives against swarms of Undead and the deadlier and faster Lickers. Running out of luck and resources, the group is rescued by Alice, and they begin to wage an exhilarating battle to survive and escape before the Umbrella Corporation erases its experiment from the face of the earth. Their only hope lies ... Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Trivia

(at around 2 mins) The weather map at the beginning clearly shows Raccoon City as being approximately where Philadelphia is in Pennsylvania. Other real-life towns such as Selinsgrove, Hazelton and Pottsville, all appear in their correct geographic locations. See more »

Goofs

(at around 45 mins) When Alice falls down the chute to avoid Nemesis, she is shown breaking her ring finger on her left hand. When she is in the hopper and putting her hands to her head, you can clearly see that all 10 fingers are intact and unbroken. When she resets the finger, it is then the ring finger of her right hand.

User Reviews

 
Good portration of Racoon City.
12 April 2020 | by undeaddtSee all my reviews

I felt like the forte of the movie was the environment setting throughout the whole movie, especially while the main characters walk the soulless streets full with zombies. It reminded me of the game much more than the first movie, also letting us to see The Nemesis for the first time, even tho they made him a lot Terminator like, which I did not like. Anyway, a decent movie resembling the games which caught the gaming world by surprise in the late 90's.
