This $675 million-grossing film franchise returns for its fifth and most spectacular installment to date, Resident Evil: Retribution written and directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, in state-of-the art 3D.

The Umbrella Corporation’s deadly T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead.

Resident Evil: Retribution begins with a breathtaking opening sequence – a slow-mo in reverse order leading to its shocking panoramic conclusion,

Iconic action protagonist Alice (Milla Jovovich) begins right where she was last seen at the end Resident Evil: Afterlife – on the deck of the mysterious shipArcadia, where she hoped to find more survivors of the plague.

Instead, Alice is in the fight of her life as her former ally Jill Valentine (Sienna Guillory) and a fleet of the nefarious Umbrella Corporation’s V-22 helicopters swoop in with orders to shoot to kill.

The army of zombies created when the Umbrella Corporation lost control of the T-virus has become larger and even more dangerous as time has passed. The Undead are constantly mutating. They have huge, tentacular mandibles that come out of their mouths.

Human race’s last and only hope, ALICE (Milla Jovovich), awakens in the heart of Umbrella’s most impenetrable operations facility and unveils more of her mysterious past as she delves further into the complex. ALICE continues on her journey to find survivors and lead them to safety.

And as Alice is about to discover, there are worse things afoot the Undead that are infected with the Las Plagas virus maintain motor skills and some degree of intelligence, some of them can ride motorbikes and shoot machine guns.

Her deadly battle with the Umbrella Corporation reaches new heights, but Alicegets 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.

Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true.

Attempting a death-defying escape from the vast, high-tech complex with the help of a crew of elite commandos, Alice battles her way through the cityscapes of these mega cities.

Along the way, she encounters a series of mind-blowing revelations that will force her to rethink everything she once believed.Alicefinds a new reason to fight for the survival of a hostile world on the brink of oblivion. The countdown has begun.

This instalment has even more twists and turns than ever before. It is more adventurous and the action is borrowed freely from the games.

Resident Evil: Retribution dazzles audiences with a stunning combination of the unique action sequences and the creative Director has imagined a terrifying future world devastated by an unthinkable plague.
