Four movies later, and the whole Umbrella Corporation set-up still makes absolutely no sense to me. For one, who is still hiring themselves out as faceless henchmen to these guys? It’s the end of the world, what exactly are they doing, earning a paycheck? Mind you, not that it matters. As this featurette pretty much sums up, this franchise has been going around in circles for years now, and the fact that it keeps on chugging along is simply because you keep paying your money to see it. But hey, in case you missed one or two of the last four movies, here’s a quick video to catch you up.
In the fifth film, Alice fights alongside a resistance movement in the continuing battle against the nefarious Umbrella Corporation and the undead. Well, mostly the Umbrella Corporation. The undead just sorta stumbles around as cool action scene fodder nowadays. They were never that scary to begin with, and five movies in, they’re pretty much an afterthought.
