Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is, sadly, a flop. So far, it has raked in $78.4 million in the box office which does not even equal its budget of $80 million .

The movie has received negative reviews, including a 33% rating from Rotten Tomatoes. The sad truth is that there have been too many Resident Evil movies for there to be a well-developed plot.

At this point, the directors and producers may be asking themselves, “What should we do now?”  In a movie where many characters have died an actress was brought back to play a returning character so that the main protagonist would not be the only recognizable hero in the movie, in addition, a villain was brought back to life with an overly simple explanation as to how he is alive.

The plot was poorly developed in this movie, lacking the elements that made the first three movies in the series successful. There is barely any attempt to explain the events between The Final Chapter and the prior installment Resident Evil Retribution, with the exception of one moment between the lead and an unremarkable character whose name no one should even bother remembering.

There is no attempt at an explanation of most for the actions of the characters. For example, there is no indication as to why the lead is in Washington D.C. at the beginning of the film. It just seems as though she was just dropped at a random location.

The Final Chapter is full of action, but sadly, the interaction between the characters and their development is as minimal as possible.When watching these movies the answer is always to add clones. There are so many clones in this movie saga that the name of it should be changed from Resident Evil to the Clone Wars.

The fight scenes at the end of the movie felt unfilling and the villains that antagonised the lead for such a long period of time meet unenjoyable ends. Do not watch this movie; it is a disappointing conclusion to a franchise that has spanned a period of six films and fifteen years.
