actually, as seen in RE2, the virus wouldn't have gotten lose except Umbrellas competitors sent a swat team into the hive, shooting the G-viruses leading researcher William Birkin, and stealing the virus. Birkin injected himself, transforming into a massive bioorganic weapon, and stalked down the swat team, killed them all and destroyed the virus they stole in the sewer system under the city. the rats spread the virus over the city while it was still airborne.
in res evil 1 you see a shadow of a dude? i don't recall that.
the guy who got scratched turns into the NEMESIS, which is a HUGE programmed humanoid tyrant creature who is unstoppable and stalks you throughout Resident Evil 3, which is called NEMESIS. And in the next movie too.
At the end of the first movie you can hear the scientists say 'i want him in the nemesis project'.
1 thing im waitin 4 in res 2 is jill valentine might be in it. but it might be a crappy crossover
she is in it. she's the playable character in RE3, the game the movie is based on. She's dressed the same as in the game, just the hair is different. However the crappy thing is in the next movie Jill runs into Alice and they fight out of the city together, but in the game there is no person called 'Alice'. Damned hollywood screwups.
i don't understand why they skipped making a movie of resident Evil 2 the game tho. I mean, that one is as close as you can get to a movie, with the chest-bursting and the terminator-like Mr. X stalking you and the evil conpiracies of the chief and the giant croc and the love story between leon and ada etc etc.
i was thinking is the mansion in the movie the same 1 from the game?
No, it isn't.
There are actually THREE Umbrella-owned Mansions in the mountains of the Arkley forest surrounding Raccoon City. The first one that was discovered is indeed the one from the first game. That is a lab all of it's own, with lodgings for the scientists and whatnot. The second lab that was discovered (actually the first, on the timeline) was in RE0, which is where the T-virus was originally found. The third, the mansion in the movie, which is nothing more than a secret entrance into the main Umbrella lab, the Hive deep under the city.
