On Captain America: Civil War

On Resident Evil: Afterlife

Continuing from Resident Evil, Resident Evil: Apocalypse, and Resident Evil: Extinction is Resident Evil: Afterlife, reaching the height of ridiculousness within the film series, and introducing the characters, Chris Redfield and Luther West. Claire Redfield returns at the beginning in Alaska since Extinction, and K-Mart also returns since Extinction, while Jill Valentine returns in the … Continue reading
