Resident Evil: Retribution
Resident Evil 5 picks up right where Resident Evil 4 left off (which probably isn't helpful to anyone since you either didn't see RE-4 or, completely forgot what happens in it). The battle that was teased at the end of RE-4 plays out in reverse slo-mo over the opening credits of part 5 here. Then, we learn that our protagonist, Alice, is whisked off to some underwater research facility in Northern Russia to be experimented upon. Alice needs to escape, and thus, we have a movie!
Of all the Resident Evil films, this one plays out like a video game more than any other. To escape from the underwater facility, Alice must go through 5 zombie simulation auditoriums that were made to resemble: Tokyo, New York, Suburbia, Berlin, and Moscow. And that's the movie, Alice fights zombies in 5 levels while clones of previous films' co-stars help hunt her down. Their inclusion was supposed to revie interest in this entry...
