A secret experiment…a deadly virus…a fatal mistake. Based on the wildly popular video game series,
Resident Evil is an action-packed thriller starring Milla Jovovich (The Fifth Element), Michelle
Rodriguez (The Fast and the Furious) and Eric Mabius (Cruel Intentions) in a battle of good and evil,
human versus computer, the living against the Undead.
Something terrible is lurking in the Hive, a vast underground genetic research facility run by the
Umbrella Corporation, a faceless bio-engineering conglomerate. A deadly viral outbreak occurs, and
in response, the Red Queen - a vast supercomputer that controls and monitors the Hive - seals the
entire facility to contain the leak, killing all the trapped employees.
Alice (Milla Jovovich) and Rain (Michelle Rodriguez) must lead fellow commandos to isolate the virus
that has wiped out Umbrella’s entire research staff. The team soon discovers, however, that the workers
are…not…really…dead. They are now the ravenous, zombie-like Undead, and they are prowling the hive. One
bite or scratch from an Undead causes infection and worse, instant transformation into their kind.
Alice and the military task force have three hours to complete their mission before the Undead
threaten to overrun the Earth. To access the Red Queen, the team must pass through a series of
increasingly horrifying obstacles in the maze-like hive. These include deadly lasers, mutant dogs
and a vast specimen room where Alice witnesses the results of Umbrella’s evil experimental research.
Alice soon discovers the Undead are the ghastly result of Umbrella’s latest project gone awry -- the
Initially designed to combat ageing and fight nerve-based diseases, the T-virus has the ability to
reanimate dead cells. Alice realises that an unknown saboteur has stolen the virus and freed it into
the hive’s atmosphere. That’s how the outbreak occurred. Who would do such a thing, and why?
Confronting the giant computer, Rain demands that she guide them to the surface. The Red Queen
agrees, but insists that no one who is infected will be allowed to escape. Unless of course, they
can find the Anti-Virus first. Standing in their way is a genetically mutated experiment that is now
a vicious creature known as "the Licker," bent on destroying them all. The Licker’s strength increases
with each victim it slays–making the team’s job even more deadly.
Will the team defeat the Red Queen and find the anti-virus in time? Or are they doomed to turn
Undead? Who, if anyone, will escape the evil Hive alive?
