Resident Evil: Afterlife is a 2010 action horror film written and directed by Paul W. S. Anderson. The film marks Anderson’s return to direct in the Resident Evil film series, after the first film. A direct sequel to Resident Evil: Extinction (2007), it is the fourth installment in the Resident Evil film series, which is loosely based on the video game series of the same name, and the first to be shot in 3D. It stars Milla Jovovich, Ali Larter, Kim Coates, Shawn Roberts, Spencer Locke, Boris Kodjoe, and Wentworth Miller.
The story continues with Alice now targeting the head of the Umbrella Corporation along with her many clones. However, not all goes as planned, survivors are disappearing, and Alice herself has finally been cured of the T virus that has made her superhuman.
More survivors are holed up in a prison awaiting rescue from Arcadia, the ship and sanctuary promised over the radio. Alice arrives and of course all hell breaks loose forcing all involved to abandon the prison and make the dangerous trek to the Arcadia, only to find the ship seemingly abandoned as well.
The secret of the Arcadia is revealed, only leaving more questions rather than answering them altogether, but eventually giving everyone left a sense of hope for the future…
