Our heroine, Alice (Milla Jovovich), wakes up amidst the crisis with no memory of her identity. Throughout the film Alice experiences flashbacks of her memories as a former Umbrella security operative. She is conscripted into the commando task force sent into The Hive to investigate. All too soon they find themselves fighting for their lives against hordes of zombies. Among the commandos is Rain Ocampo (Michelle Rodriguez) who almost survives the mission. After the final confrontation with a nasty Licker creature, Alice is captured by Umbrella Corporation and wakes up later at an abandoned hospital in Raccoon City. End movie 1 cliffhanger...
All roads leading to and from Raccoon City has been sealed in attempt to contain the T-virus outbreak. Alice wakes from her coma in the abandoned city and soon rescues Jill Valentine (Sienna Guillory) from a bunch of Lickers in a church, exhibiting superhuman strength and agility gained form Umbrella's experimentation.
In exchange for rescuing the daughter of a top Umbrella Corporation scientist, Alice's team is led to an evacuation helicopter but are confronted by an uber-zombie Nemesis. In the ensuing fight, Alice discovers Nemesis is a mutated friend from her escape from The Hive. They team-up briefly against Umbrella forces before Alice escapes onboard a helicopter. Unfortunately, their flight is caught in the nuclear blast shockwave used to cleanse Raccoon City of the infection, which is later covered up as a nuclear plant explosion. The helicopter crashes with Alice apparently killed.
However Alice awakens once again later very much alive at another Umbrella facility and is introduced to Dr. Isaacs (Iain Glen). She soon fights her way out and is timely rescued by Jill & Co. Isaacs lets them escape stating "Project Alice activated"...
In Las Vegas they are ambushed by super zombies deployed by Dr. Isaacs, killing most of the convoy. During the fight, Dr. Isaacs becomes infected but escapes to an underground Umbrella facility. He begins injecting himself with large doses of anti-virus, mutating into a monstrous Tyrant and then killing Umbrella employees in the facility.
Alice tracks Isaacs to the Umbrella facility and meets the White Queen, the Red Queen's sister A.I., who informs that Alice may hold the cure for the T-virus in her blood. Alice battles the monstrous Isaacs and defeats him with the help of her clone. This chapter ends with a more hopeful note: Alice threatening the new Umbrella chairman, Albert Wesker (Jason O'Mara), amidst a potential army of her clones. Girl power!
After failing to find more survivors of the Apocalypse, Alice heads towards the Arcadia. She meets up with Claire and they head to Los Angeles to seek the Arcadia, a cargo tanker. They hook up with other survivors including Chris Redfield (Wentworth Miller). Escaping a massive horde of zombies, Alice and the Redfields make it to Arcadia and discover it's an Umbrella ruse to capture human survivors for experimentation.
They also discover Wesker very much alive (no surprise really!) thanks to a mutation of the T-virus which grants him superhuman abilities. A battle royale ensues with Wesker escaping abroad an aircraft. The trio intent to convert Arcadia into a true haven for survivors but is shortly assaulted by a fleet of Umbrella gunships, seemingly led by Jill Valentine. Plot twist!
Released in 2010, Afterlife was marketed as a showcase of 3D cinema experience.
Alice wakes up later in yet another underground Umbrella facility interrogated by Jill Valentine. She soon escapes her cell during a power failure and encounters Ada Wong (Li Bing Bing) who works for Wesker. The Red Queen has taken control of Umbrella and making human clones for simulating virus outbreaks in replica cities from around the world. Alice and Ada then make their way through the various cityscapes battling Umbrella forces and zombies hordes whilst picking up stragglers like a clone of Rain Ocampa, and Alice's simulated daughter, Becky. Meanwhile a rescue team with Leon Kennedy (Johann Urb) met their way down to rendezvous with Alice and subsequently destroy the Umbrella facility.
The final battles takes place on the icy surface between Alice and mind-controlled Jill, as well as an evil Rain clone. The good guys survive, with some casualties, and are taken to Wesker's headquarters in the former White House, Washington D.C.. It's apparently humanity's last stand as the Red Queen sends hordes of T-virus abominations to wipe them out. What a cliffhanger!
Seriously, we know they will prevail. It's just how and who makes it to the end this chapter.
