It's five years after the end of the first movie and the T-Virus, in addition to making 99% of the population into flesh-eating zombies, has also made the Earth a barren wasteland. Alice (Milla Jovovich) reunites with Carlos (Oded Fehr), who is travelling with a survival convoy led by Claire (HEROES' Ali Larter). She saves them just in time, when they are attacked by a huge flock of highly aggressive crows that have feed on contaminated flesh. Alice has the idea that there's survivors - and quality of life - up in Alaska, and ultimately convinces the group that that is the place to go. But before they do they have to refuel and the only place left to do that is Las Vegas.
Meanwhile, Dr. Isaacs (Iain Glen) of The Umbrella Corporation has gone completely over the deep end at his research facility miles below the desert. He's been experimenting on clones of Alice, trying to reverse the T-Virus. He also creates a virus that makes zombies even more aggressive, which makes for one harrowing zombie attack scene.
Of the trilogy I like this one the best, as it's straight-forward, interesting and has non-stop action. It's probably what Romero's LAND OF THE DEAD should've been (although I do like that movie), a kick-ass zombie apocalypse movie. Director Russell Mulcahy gets a pat on the back for this one.
But I have one question - what do you call all those Alice clones? Alices? Alice? Ali?
