QUICK TAKE:
Action-Horror: Alice, the last hope for a world overrun by zombies, tries to break free from a top-secret complex where the virus was developed and first unleashed.
PLOT:
The genetically altered Alice (MILLA JOVOVICH) returns to do battle with the evil Umbrella Corporation responsible for unleashing a virus on the Earth's population that caused a global pandemic and turned millions into zombies. As the film opens, Alice is being tortured by Jill Valentine (SIENNA GUILLORY), a former ally who has since come under the thought control of the company. Alice eventually escapes with the help of the formerly (and quite possibly still) evil corporate head Albert Wesker (SHAWN ROBERTS) and his right-hand woman Ada (BINGBING LI), who is as skilled as Alice is with guns and martial arts.

The two must make their way through Umbrella's massive Russian headquarters, which includes large sections that simulate downtown Tokyo, Moscow, New York's Times Square, and an idyllic American suburban town where Alice encounters Becky (ARYANA ENGINEER), a cloned little girl who believes she is her daughter. Alice also comes into contact with two versions of her old friend, Rain (MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ). One is a clone who fashions herself a pacifist caught up in the zombie apocalypse and the other is a real-world operative hell-bent on capturing and/or killing Alice and Ada.

At the same time, a strike team specially assembled by Wesker has infiltrated the other side of the Russian facility and is in a running gun battle on its way to rescue Alice. They are led by Alice's old friend, Luther (BORIS KODJOE); sharp-shooter Leon (JOHANN URB); and gung-ho Barry (KEVIN DURAND). Their struggle is to unite as one team, get to the surface, and blow the entire facility.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Teens will have some interest, especially those who have seen the previous "Resident Evil" movies and are fans of the video game.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For sequences of strong violence throughout.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
