Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City Ending Explained and Review

Last Updated on November 27, 2021 by Joydeep Ghosh

Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is a recently released film with a story adapted from the game.

The series of Resident Evil films have been going on for the last 15 years, with six movies in the line.

The recently released film has got mixed reactions which result in the fact that the people who had been following the series since the very start would be eagerly waiting and would undoubtedly be liking this film out to some extent.

If you indulged yourself in the Resident Evil game sometime or somewhere in your lifetime, you would not find any element of new thing in this Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City.

The reason being almost all the character of the film has been from the game itself, and also the flow of the film takes place according to the game only.

Here, we have tried to give a brief of the film with some aspects that you had been finding answers for with that we have also tried to give our review out for this film that would help you decide whether you should go for the movie or not.

Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City- Who is Ada Wong?

The makers tried everything not to include so many main characters in the film right from the start.

That’s why you would be seeing Ada Wong here in the mid-credit scenes of Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City.

If you have watched the earlier part of the film, Resident Evil 2, you might know Ada Wong.

In Resident Evil 2, we saw that Ada Wong is the one who has been assigned the task of collecting and indeed stealing the samples of G-Virus.

The makers believe that though the character of Ada was put on into the ending scenes of the film, still it’s a quite a new beginning for the character.

Talking about Ada Wong, in particular, would be challenging to know her only from what she is in Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City. The prerequisite stands here that you should have watched the film’s earlier part to dig deeper into this.

We are talking about Ada, who is working for ‘The Organization,’ a rival organization of Umbrellas.

Nothing much about this company is known apart from wanting to destroy the Umbrella organization.

Only once managed this company until the latter went into absolute bankruptcy and later sold it to its rival.

The company seems more like a mysterious group in the film, and Ada and Wesker were the employees of this company.

Indeed things may have started to change for Ada as well after the rival company of the Umbrella took in the company.

We could expect more dimensions of this character opening up in the coming sequels of the film if any.

Is there a Post Credit Scenes in Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City?

Yes, there was one scene after the mid-credit scene, which we could safely term as a post-credit scene.

In the mid-credit scene, we saw that Albert Wesker was freed from a body bag, one of the most exciting scenes in the film.

 Here, in this situation, Albert seemed to be very confused about whether he was still alive or not, and midst all this, we saw Ada Wong coming in. Ada Came in and lent her trademark sunglasses.

Now, these sunglasses would help Albert regain his lost vision.

This scene indeed introduced one of the most critical aspects of the film that you would have missed.

She is here helping out Wesker, who indeed points out that she is working with Wesker and not against the Umbrella for that mysterious group trying to get all the possible details out against the Umbrella and then destroy the city.

This scene has great significance because this has probably been missed by many of us. 

The makers had tried to hint that all Ada was doing till now wasn’t against Umbrella but was, in particular, for the welfare of Umbrella itself.

The question stands out here that whether she is entirely against the mysterious group or helping her hand out there, this question was not answered in Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City. 

We could surely expect these incoming sequels of the film.

Will Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City get a sequel?

To answer this query, whether Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City will get a sequel at this point would be quite a tough job.

This is because neither the makers of the film nor Sony Pictures have commented out anything regarding this.

Indeed, we could expect a sequel of Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, but that’s unsure till we get an official wording for the makers.

Still, we could see Resident Evil: Code Veronica and Resident Evil 4 on the cards.

Also, the future sequels of the film would have the elements from the Resident Evil 3 as well.

The directional aspects of all the movies up till now have been tremendous, and we would indeed be looking forward to the same directorial touch in the future films of Resident evil.

Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City- Our Take on this Film

The Resident Evil went for 15 straight years with six films on the go in that period.

This all-new film seems to be a slow-paced game adaption to a movie trying to create horror in the audience but still lacking the essential element of the thing here.

Suppose you love playing games and have indulged in the resident evil games in the past, then honestly, the film has nothing intriguing for you this time.

The film has all the game’s mission, just a seasoning of horror element that seems to disarray all these things.

Also, almost all the characters in Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City are derived from the game, so it may look very dizzy for you if you have been in the game.

The story of Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is picked from the kids turning into adults and then their journey to saving the city from the mysterious group aimed at destroying the city straight away.

All this film’s plot is flashed so that you don’t miss on any of the things mid-way.

At some point in the film, you tend to confuse whether the film focuses on saving the city or investing horror into the audience because, honestly, the film failed to do both things properly.

This has made the film a science fiction film rather than what is labeled as a horror film.

The film’s final scenes where we see the Anderson series happening in the underground lairs where the zombies bombard bombs had a bit of horror element.

At one point in the film, we see no moment happening here and there like there was no confrontation with the zombies, well leaving that apart one could say that the Zombies, too, had lost somewhere.

Apart from some parts of the film where we see some efforts to introduce horror for the audience, the film has nothing more to offer.

A significant chunk of the film had been deleting the rival group that is clear to destroy the economics of Raccoon City.

This led to a heavy dose of fighting scenes that turned out to be very repetitive because you have been here to watch the horror element and not the overjoyed science fiction elements.

If we had to rate the film we would give it a 65/100.
