Alice (Milla Jovovich) again wakes up in a mansion and has to make it through a gauntlet of traps, she doesn’t make it through and she’s dumped into a pit, already filled with other Alices. The result of Umbrella Corp.’s continuation of Project Alice, they are finding that clones are hardly substitutions for the real Alice.

 

The real Alice has discovered she is telekinetic and wanders the wasteland that is now all the world is after the T-Virus’ spread and obliterated the world’s population. The direct result of Umbrella’s attempt to suppress and cover up the existence and impact of the virus. Meanwhile, the remaining members continue the work on Project Alice but there is dissent in the ranks, the board wants to continue to work with the clones, while Dr. Isaacs (Iain Glen), head of the program wants to recapture Alice. He thinks her blood is key to controlling the infected.

 

Alice is lured into a cannibal family’s trap with a rapey son and zombie dogs but they were not ready for her. Afterward, Alice finds a fly blown corpse hanging in a freezer, with it, a notebook that points to an uninfected settlement in Alaska and plans to head that way. Plus a convoy of survivors, many of whom, knew Alice earlier on in Raccoon City are just trying to survive in desolated land full of zombie people and zombie animals. After taking some losses after a zombie bird attack. They wander into a trap in Vegas.

 

It goes bad for the convoy but Alice manages to break the satellite connection Umbrella has over her and ruins Dr. Isaacs plan and changing the course when he’s injured and injects himself with the T-Virus.

And Alice get to find out, what exactly, they’ve been doing in their desert facility.
