The final battle for the fate of humanity is upon us, and so is the end of our journey. It was long and arduous, full of pain and confusion, but its purpose has finally been revealed. After a four-year sabbatical to hone his narrative craft, Paul W.S. Anderson pulls away the curtain one last time like a master magician to show us just how everyone’s fates, desires, and destinies are intertwined. We learn Umbrella’s true design, the origin of Alice, and see the Red Queen redeemed in a stunning subversion of a familiar turn. Events from prior in the series that at the time seemed masturbatory and gratuitous now are thrown into sharp relief, their true significance only glimpsed in the final moments of this monumental storytelling achievement. As George Lucas once so wisely put it, “It’s like poetry – it rhymes!”
