‘Evil comes home’

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is 2017 science-fiction action-horror film co-produced, written and directed by Paul W. S. Anderson. It was the sixth and final instalment in the Resident Evil film series, based on the Capcom survival horror video games Resident Evil.

The film was released in 3D January 27, 2017 in the USA and in UK cinemas from 24 February, 2017.

Main cast:

Milla Jovovich, Ali Larter, Shawn Roberts, William Levy, Ruby Rose and Iain Glen.



Immediately after the events in Resident Evil: Retribution, humanity is teetering on the edge of total destruction in Washington D.C. As the only survivor of what was meant to be the final stand against the undead hordes, Alice must return to where the nightmare began – Raccoon City, where the Umbrella Corporation is gathering its forces for a final strike against the only remaining survivors of the apocalypse…


“Although the franchise could’ve ended with a bit more gusto, The Final Chapter still packs quite a punch, and manages to be both satisfying for die hard fans, while still entertaining everyday moviegoers who are just looking for a few hours away from reality. The decision to make this final film a return to the first is an intention that seeps into every aspect of the movie, from the grittier locations, to the more human, powers-stripped-away Alice, to the darker palettes, and it plays well.” Bloody Disgusting

“Though new faces join returning actors (Iain Glen, Ali Larter and Shawn Roberts), Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is mostly about its impressive heroine. It doesn’t bother fleshing out other characters, since that flesh is likely to end up in a bloody heap anyway. Without developed characters, this zombie movie lacks not only brains but also a heart; most fans, however, will be too busy cheering Alice on to mind.” Los Angeles Times

” …Jovovich is clearly having a blast doing these films. Even after 15 years of mashing mutants, she still brings enough energy and panache to the franchise, not to mention a commanding physical presence. Resident Evil: The Final Chapter may not be the ideal final note for the series but as long as Jovovich is up there doing her thing, most people will be too enthralled to notice.”


“In The Final Chapter, Anderson gets carried away with his fealty to Fury Road, attempting to recapture its distinctive velocity. Anderson employs uncharacteristically frenetic editing, squandering the beauty of his remarkable compositions, resulting in the sort of spatial mishmash that’s common of much contemporary action filmmaking.” Slant
