Resident Evil (movie)

Resident Evil , or Resident Evil : The Evil Creatures 1 inQuebec, is aGerman-French-Britishhorror filmdirected byPaul WS Anderson, released in2002. The film is partially inspiredbyCapcom’seponymousvideo games : Resident Evil .


In a large underground pharmaceutical laboratory of the multinational company Umbrella Corporation , a virus is voluntarily released. The building is then quarantined and the scientists working there are murdered .

In a sumptuous mansion, a young woman named Alice ( Milla Jovovich ) wakes up in a bathroom without any memory. Time to look for information and explanations about her amnesia, Alice meets a man named Matt, a policeman of the city, ( Eric Mabius ) and both are captured by an elite commando who invests the mansion. The soldiers (James One Shade ( Colin Salmon ), Rain Ocampo ( Michelle Rodriguez ), Chad Kaplan ( Martin Crewes ), JD Salidas ( Pasquale Aleardi ), Olga (the doctor) ( Liz May Brice) and two other soldiers) have for objective to find the real reason for this quarantine, which turned, one can say, with the massacre. That’s when they force Alice, who is a former Umbrella Corporation squad member, and Matt, to board a train under the mansion leading to the underground laboratory, HIVE. In the train, the group discovers another man who, like Alice, has no memory. This is another squad member and companion Alice called Spencer Parks ( James Purefoy ).

One explains to the three people found that for some unknown reason, the computer controlling the Hive (the Red Queen) has become a murderer. The team’s mission is to shut down the computer and understand what happened. Alice and Spencer, both agents, lost their memory after the Red Queen released a nerve gas into the mansion.

The soldiers separate: Rain, JD and Matt (whose cause is unknown) remain in a container room while Alice, One, Kaplan, Spencer, Olga and the other two soldiers go to the room before airlock leading to the control box of the Red Queen. One, Olga and the other two soldiers enter but the security system (laser beams) activates and the airlock door is locked. Olga is beheaded, the two soldiers pierced and One is cut into pieces.

Kaplan extinguishes the red queen who, in the form of a hologram, warns him. This one having survived, destroys the computer and leaves with the group. They will soon discover that the most dangerous enemy is not the HIVE security system, but all the people who are supposed to be dead … Alice then crosses Spencer contaminated earlier by the virus, become a living dead and then finishes with an ax, while Rain and Kaplan are injected antivirus. and the train leaves …

The action follows with the tracking of a “lickers” on the train: it kills Kaplan and Alice immobilizes it. Meanwhile, Rain turns into a zombie and Matt kills her. The action ends when the lickers are crushed by the train.

In the mansion, Matt, who was scratched by the “lickers”, convulse, Alice is about to heal him, but at the same time, Umbrella scientists arrive and capture them.

The story of this first installment ends with Alice waking up in a hospital room in Racoon City , where the video games of the Resident Evil saga begin .

What will happen to Alice now and what have they done to her? The answer to this question comes as she leaves the hospital and plows the ground in the town of Racoon with a rifle in her hand.

The film was originally intended to be written and directed by George A. Romero ( Night of the Living Dead , 1968), but he left the project in 1999 as a result of artistic differences with the production because Capcom had refused Romero’s screenplay. The script is nevertheless available on the net, we see that the film was the scenario of the first 2 games Resident Evil, in fact, Romero had asked one of his assistants to play the first 2 Resident Evil and record his games on tape so that he can write scenario 7 .

The film was originally titled Resident Evil: Ground Zero 8 but was renamed after the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 . [ref. necessary]
