Resident Evil provides a good finale “Some fans have waited 15 years to have all of their questions fully answered”

       The “Resident Evil” saga dates back to 2002, which is as old as many of the freshmen at West Fargo High School this year. The film series has received $915 million in the box office and the sixth movie was released on January 27.

       In “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter” Alice gets a message that all remaining humans have 48 hours to live, and that an airborne antivirus has been discovered in Raccoon City, and Alice must release it to save mankind.

       The movie only reveals the entire origin and founding of the Umbrella Corporation, how it became evil, and true purpose of the T-Virus bio weapon in this movie. This is a good cinematic tool, but it is annoying to watch every movie to know what happens.

       The “Resident Evil” film series is labeled a horror franchise, as it is science fiction or action. This, sadly, is not the case. This movie provides a sub par amount of jump scares and the movies are not “scary.” The first movie is the only movie that is even remotely scary.

       This movie is very well made. The cinematic aspects are done well and the effects have come a long way since 2002. The monsters no longer look like bad prosthetics and makeup, and more rotted, disgusting and gory.

       One of the only complaints after this film is that Alice is still scantily clad, showing a lot of skin throughout the entire film. The secondary female character, Claire, is also sexualized in a similar way. The sexualization of these female characters is unnecessary.

       Overall, “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter” is a good film that can be watched, even without seen the precursing movies, allowing for a broader audience. “Resident Evil: The Final Chapter” was the end to an era, but a great final chapter to the saga.
