All four episodes of Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness have a lot of espionage and terrorism involved, but a key plan completely fails.
WARNING: The following contains major spoilers for Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, which is now streaming on Netflix.
America’s politics is at the heart of Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness, with the sinister Secretary of Defense, Wilson, trying to orchestrate a war between the United States and China. He wants to plant biological weapons (also known as super-soldiers who cannot die) in Penamstan, on the Chinese border, to intimidate them and drive them to violence.
Also, this will spread the zombie infection, which will make Wilson benefit as he will be the only one with the inhibitor serum. However, one of his own inner circle, Jason, plans to finish him off. The problem is that your scheme is flawed and ultimately fails completely.
First, Jason and Shen May trick Leon into accompanying them on their Chinese mission, and Wilson sends them there to retrieve information. He believes that China planted zombies in the White House and hacked sensitive information about his program. Little does he know that’s all Jason does, as he wants to take down the entire project. The first evidence is found in Jun-See, Shen May’s brother, and an experiment in the project that had a chip in it that controlled biometrics and the virus inside.
But the thing is, Jason and Shen May didn’t need a fake terror attack to get there. Jun-See is with his grandfather, who owns an empire in China, so Shen May had the perfect excuse to visit relatives other than his brother. Then he could have gotten the chip without spying.
The same rule applies to Jason, who does private work all over the world and could just have been there as a contractor. Without the White House drama, Wilson wouldn’t have even had an eye on Jason. He and Shen May could have also connected by dealing with Wilson instead of this complex and convoluted plan that requires many stars to align.
Even without the Jun-See chip, Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness He had a contingency: Jason is alive and breathing evidence, as he also takes the inhibitor to stop transforming into a mutated monster. He could have gone to the press and allowed his body to be tested or leaked the serum to expose Wilson. This would be smart, as it could then exonerate innocent government officials like President Graham.
Jason’s decision making is so wrong as he straddles good and evil. He appears again when he kills all the people aboard Wilson’s submarine on their way to China. He’s turning on Wilson, but these passengers aren’t hurting him, so he could have helped them escape to the mainland. Wilson wanted him to blow it up to frame the Chinese again, but he might as well have done it after the crew got off.
These mindless decisions are compounded in the Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness ending when, in his mutant form, Jason breaks Shen May’s neck. She wanted to use Jun-See’s chip to inform the media about Wilson, so there is no reason to kill her. That would have been the perfect contingency in case Jason tries to attack Washington in his monster form, only for them to cover up his existence as Raccoon City.
Directed by Eiichiro Hasumi, Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness stars Nick Apostolides, Stephanie Panisello, Ray Chase, Jona Xiao, Billy Kametz, Joe J. Thomas, Doug Stone, and Brad Venable. The series is now available on Netflix.
