While still out to destroy the evil Umbrella Corporation, Alice joins a group of survivors living in a prison surrounded by the infected who also want to relocate to the mysterious but supposedly unharmed safe haven known only as Arcadia.
In a world ravaged by a virus infection, turning its victims into the Undead, Alice (Jovovich), continues on her journey to find survivors and lead them to safety. Her deadly battle with the Umbrella Corporation reaches new heights, but Alice gets some unexpected help from an old friend. A new lead that promises a safe haven from the Undead takes them to Los Angeles, but when they arrive the city is overrun by thousands of Undead - and Alice and her comrades are about to step into a deadly trap.Written by
The only entry in the series where Alice is not seen naked. In the original script however she had a shower scene during which she would be watched by someone or something before being attacked by monsters. Similar scene was also included in the very first script for Resident Evil movie adaptation in 1997 written by Alan B. McElroy, and in that script Jill Valentine had a shower scene while some monster is stalking her. See more »
(at around 1h 21 mins) When Wesker flips Claire Redfield, during the brief sequence from the side when she lands on her back, a TCR timecode is visible in the lower-left of the frame for a single frame before it cuts to the sequence with Alice cornered by dogs. See more »
My name is Alice. I worked for the Umbrella Corporation in a secret laboratory developing experimental viral weaponry. There was an incident. A virus escaped. Everybody died. Trouble was, they didn't stay dead. This was the start of an apocalypse that would sweep the entire world. The men responsible for this disaster took refuge underground and continued to experiment with the deadly T-Virus. They felt secure in their high-tech fortress. But they were wrong.

Dutch DVD is cut for violence (even more than the German theatrical version). See more »
One of the things I like about the Resident Evil films is that they take the time to fill in the details while holding the audience in suspense.
This forth film completely falls flat on both accounts. Thanks to 2 dimensional characters, an overdone plot, and poor use of foreshadowing, the entire film is predictable. At the same time it doesn't bother to show or explain how certain important plot devices came to be. The movie reeks from it's overuse of Deus ex machina.
The special effects were the only engaging thing about this movie. A lot of it felt like The Matrix in 3D.
One other thing this film did well was continuity from the 3rd film. I like that they didn't spend much time on flashbacks while being faithful to the events of the 3rd film.
All in all my feeling after seeing the movie was that I was expecting more. They could have made it longer, filled in some missing details, developed the plot/characters more, and had a much more enjoyable film.
