||Originally the computer game, and the first film
||Alice is released by the Umbrella Corp into the T-Virus contaminated Racoon City where she and a small group of survivors fight off the zombies and the monsters, including Nemisis which she is forced to take on in hand to hand combat to prove her superpowers.
||A couple of young women shoot everything in sight with a variety of weapons. Lots of zombies and some of the survivors are killed. No sex, very little dialogue.
||I have never seen anything of the computer game, but this film begins to suggest that the whole environment is in some way fake. The characters are given some objectives to overcome which keeps the plot moving, and the film sticks to its own rules, which people who have read other of my reviews will know that I like.
