Resident Evil: Apocalypse

Question: In the newspaper clippings at Jill's house, it says something like "Jill Valentine suspended" so why did she get suspended?

Chosen answer: If you zoom in on the newspapers on the wall, one article mentions the death of her partner, Leon S. Kennedy, in connection with her suspension.

Question: How does Jill find out about the T-virus and its effects? I don't think they ever explained it in the movie.

Chosen answer: The newspaper clippings we see in her apartment at the start refer to a 'mansion incident' - this in fact relates to the events of the first Resident Evil game, when Jill and other STARS members were trapped in a mansion overrun with the T-Virus. By the end of the game Jill knows exaclty what the T-Virus is and what its effects are.

Even though it mentions it in the newspaper clippings in the movie she wasn't even at the Mansion so therefore she wouldn't have known about the t-virus in the movie.

Question: Why doesn't the dogs senses dumb down with infection? Obviously human senses degrade when they turn into zombies, but the dogs keep their speed and ability to smell scents.

Chosen answer: First, the T-virus affects humans and dogs differently - zombie dogs look like they've been skinned, but zombie humans just look dead. Second, there's little evidence that human senses have been dimmed, it's just that zombies are stupider without higher brain functions (explained in the first movie) and are slower because they conserve energy for actual attacks, not moving. Dogs are much more efficient predators than humans and don't need to slow down as much because a few bites will take down prey.

Question: Why didn't Carlos turn into a zombie when he got bitten on the leg like Sgt. Peyton?

Roman Curiel

Answer: As shown in the first film, the virus doesn't necessarily hit at a consistent rate. It depends on the individual subject and the severity of the wound. Carlos managed to survive just long enough to get the anti-virus. Also, Peyton was shot and killed by Nemesis, thus he re-animated at a quicker rate, as his body shut down.

Question: Why does Alice go to the church?

Answer: She heard gunshots.

Question: So on the newspaper clipping you can see the it said Jill Valentine got suspended for her partners death, Leon Kennedy. But was this supposed to happen because you play as Leon in Resident Evil 4 and Wesker says that he survived Raccoon City outbreak. So why wasn't he in this movie?

Chosen answer: The films, while incorporating elements of the game plots, are under no obligation to maintain any continuity with them. They can tell the story in the way that they want to, without having to worry about the game storylines. If they didn't want to use a given character, they're entirely within their rights to kill them off or ignore them completely.

Answer: I've played all the games in from a game standpoint Jill Leon Claire and Chris were protagonist of the first three sets of games for actually but the movies didn't even make Jill a protagonist which turned out pretty well considering Alice. The protagonist character Alice was a very good incorporation I believe to the entire movie timeline. But I don't believe in the events that took place in between the movies like they were unexplained. And I would have been at least made Leon Moore Manor character doing later and I would have been at least made Leon a main character during the later movies instead of just making him a side character that you see for about 5 minutes and then he disappears.

Question: Does the sniper on the roof that Nemesis blows up with the rocket launcher have a name?

Chosen answer: No, he is not referred to anyone from the video games, nor does anyone call him by his name. He is just known as "the sniper".

Jason Riley

Question: How did that person get turned into Nemesis in both the film and the game? I just want to know if it is accurate.

Chosen answer: It is never explained how the Nemesis came about in the game. But like the other Bio-weapons, it was probably created in a lab by a scientist. The reason it was created by Umbrella was to kill all STARS members. Because the T-Virus is so highly contagious, if one catches it of course, you turn into a zombie. But, that's not the only thing you can change into. Hence the man in the first Resident Evil movie gets cut, catches the T-Virus and starts to transform into the Nemesis.

Sir William

Answer: Matt from Resident Evil 1 gets scratched by a liquor he then catches the liquor version of the virus. Then as the movie ends you hear the same to say I want him in the Nemesis program which transforms the liquor virus into the Nemesis character. Nemesis is actually made up of several of the bio weapons put together he's another form of the tyrant. Which all together is another character from part 1 he's the boss character from the game.

Question: Near the start of the film when the woman who throws herself off the building is being chased up the steps, she gets bitten on her lower left arm and another bite just appears on the top of her same arm. I never saw how she got this. Did she get bitten again?

Chosen answer: Yes, she gets bitten twice.

Question: I don't understand the end. Is Earth being controlled by Umbrella now? Are Carlos and Jill taking Alice away from the research facility for testing (on the scientists' side), or are they saving her from the facility and setting her free for another adventure?

Chosen answer: Carlos and Jill are trying to rescue her. They are unaware that Umbrella has attempted to turn Alice into a weapon to use against them.

Grumpy Scot

Answer: Of course they're there to rescue her. But they never explain the events between apocalypse and Extinction that cause them to separate and what happened to the little girl I think that's the one that irritates me the most.

Question: Is there any reference to Chris Redfield or any other Resident Evil character in the movie?

Chosen answer: One that I saw was a reference to Chris Redfield in the newspaper clippings in Jill's apartment. There was also a name on the K-9 Unit in front of the school, but I couldn't see the name clearly.

Question: If Umbrella "programmed" Nemesis to do its bidding, why didn't they do the same to Alice? It would seem she would be a loose cannon that would need to be controlled.

Chosen answer: It appears Alice was an anomaly in the Nemesis project, perhaps this also prevented her from being controlled.

Question: Why was the Nemesis creature supposed to kill members of STARS?

Chosen answer: Two reasons: 1. They're the elite of the Raccoon City Police force and therefore an excellent means of testing his abilities. 2. Some of them, like Jill, know the T-Virus is responsible for the outbreak so they have to be exterminated before they can expose Umbrella.

Question: Does anyone have any idea what the bit with the security guard at the end was about? Even if Alice could somehow "fire" a virus into someone, there's no way she could have known where in the building the guard was just by looking at the cameras. She might be part computer, but she's not psychic. As far as I can tell, this isn't drawn from any of the games.

Phoenix

Chosen answer: The T-virus was causing her to evolve at a very fast rate. She developed psychic powers and used them on the guard.
