It was just a movie 'made by fans, for fans'.
Milla Jovovich is set to appear in the sixth and final movie of the 'Resident Evil' franchise. Fifteen years on from the first movie, she reflects on the totally unexpected and explosive success of the series, which she says began as a movie 'made by fans for fans'.
Milla Jovovich returns for 'Resident Evil: The Final Chapter'
'Resident Evil: The Final Chapter' sees Milla return in her role as zombie ass-kicking former pharmaceutical company operative Alice. She's back in Raccoon City to stand against the Umbrella Corporation who are trying to wipe out the survivors of the T-virus, and it looks like Milla enjoyed her last hurrah in her favourite franchise.

Milla Jovich takes to the screen as the badass undead slayer, Alice, in Resident Evil 6; the final instalment of the hugely successful film series.
Over the course of the five previous movies, Racoon City found itself being overrun by the undead who have been infected by a mutant virus that originated thanks a deadly vile being stolen from a corporation known as The Hive Corporation who manufacture genetic material. The virus was so strong that it was unable to be contained to one city; it soon spread to the far reaches of the world.
After The Umbrella corporation witness Alice's apparent powers, they decide to modify her (whilst she's in a coma and without her consent) and also take samples of her DNA to hopefully clone. Alice’s mission takes her to different parts of the world and as she learns of the clones, the war between the undead and the soldiers working with Umbrella deepen and Alice’s main aim is to find a safe haven for survivors to retreat to.
Unusually gritty and grounded, this terrorism thriller avoids the pitfalls of most overwrought action movies by creating characters and action situations that are unusually believable, even if the plot itself feels badly undercooked. The problem is that there isn't a clear sense of what's at stake here, because screenwriter Philip Shelby insists on continually blurring the mystery by withholding key details until he's ready to reveal them. So the cleverly played old-style suspense never quite pays off.
It opens at the US Embassy in London, where new security chief Kate (Milla Jovovich) has been alerted to the fact that terrorists are trying to get visas to enter America. Working with the ambassador (Angela Bassett) her team leaders (Dylan McDermott and Robert Forster), Kate narrows in on a suspicious doctor (Roger Rees) who's an expert in explosive gasses. But a shocking bombing stops her short, framing her as the villain. Now she's being chased not only by the Americans, but also a British inspector (James D'Arcy) and a ruthless assassin known as The Watchmaker (Pierce Brosnan). And Kate knows that she's the only one who can stop the nefarious plot, whatever it might be.
This is one of those films that enjoyably pushes its central character over the brink, so we can't help but root for Kate to get out of this seriously messy situation and save the day. Jovovich plays her in a plausible way as a capable woman who has no choice but to fight back and try to survive, because she's the only one who knows that she's not the real threat here. Everyone else is extremely shadowy, although McDermott gets to show a heroic side, as does the terrific Frances de la Tour as the only embassy staff member who believes that Kate is the good guy. Meanwhile, Brosnan gives a remarkably effective performance as a cold-blooded killer.

The world of counter-intelligence has gotten an awful lot more dangerous. When a visa security officer (Milla Jovovich) is posted in the US Embassy in the United Kingdom, she is tasked with ensuring that known or suspected terrorists are unable to make their way to the United States. But when she come under fire from a deadly assassin known only as "The Watchmaker" (Pierce Brosnan), she ends up framed for various crimes she didn't commit and is forced on the run. Now, she must do her best to keep doing her job while being hunted and tracked by not only The Watchmaker, but US Security Services and Marines.

With sin and vice running wild, the dirty police force are pushed into a war with the criminals they have spent so long supporting.
