ZOMBIE FILM FRIDAY: Resident Evil: Apocalypse | #UmbrellaCorporation #Zombies

So as we continue taking a look at the Resident Evil franchise, it brings us to Resident Evil: Apocalypse that takes place deep in the streets of Raccoon City. In my opinion, it was a great follow-up to the first movie and an excellent introduction to many of the favourite characters from the games.

mv5bmtc1ntuxmzk0nl5bml5banbnxkftztcwndq1mdizmw-_v1_ux182_cr00182268_al_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 Umbrella Corp’s elite Special Tactics and Rescue Services team, and S.T.A.R.S team leader 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 somewhere within…

My Rating: A

Interesting Facts: The trailer for this film was one of the most watched on the Internet, with 8.5 million downloads from November 2003 to May 2004; The suit for Nemesis weighed in excess of 60 pounds and stuntman Matthew G. Taylor could only stay in it for periods of up to 15 minutes before it got too hot; Paul W.S. Anderson first started writing the screenplay almost immediately after completing the first film; and Oded Fehr had little difficulty in playing a character so familiar with handling guns – he was trained in the Israeli army.

And now it’s time for the trailer…

One thought on “ZOMBIE FILM FRIDAY: Resident Evil: Apocalypse | #UmbrellaCorporation #Zombies

  1. Another great entry into the Resident Evil Franchise. Resident Evil Apocalypse was really action packed and exciting, I like this film a lot, and it was good to see the Nemesis in this one as well. Thought they got the look of that huge creature just right. Always remember playing RE3 when the Nemesis used to chase you in the game, always made you jump!

Get in on the action!
