Triple-bill of fantasy action adventure. In 'Resident Evil' (2002), a virus has been sealed in an underground research centre called the Hive, and Alice (Milla Jovovich) and Rain (Michelle Rodriguez) are sent in with a team of crack commandos to destroy it. However, they have not counted on the fact that all the employees who were trapped in the Hive with the virus, and thought to be dead, have in fact been turned into vicious zombies. Based on the Marvel Comics character, 'The Punisher' (2004) follows the bloody quest for revenge of ex-FBI agent Frank Castle (Thomas Jane), spurred into action after the merciless revenge killing of his wife, father, and son. Despite having no special powers (unlike his fellow Marvel characters), Castle nevertheless adopts the superhero guise of The Punisher, and sets out to wreak his vengeance by tracking down the culprits responsible for their demise. All clues point to Howard Saint (John Travolta), a ruthless businessman and nightclub owner whose young son was mistakenly killed by Castle in a botched undercover operation back in his FBI days. Finally, 'Hellboy' (2004) opens in the closing days of World War Two, with the Nazis attempting to use black magic to aid their dying cause. The Allies raid the camp where the ceremony is taking place, but not before a demon - Hellboy (Ron Perlman) - has already been conjured. Joining the Allied forces, Hellboy eventually grows to adulthood under the supervision of his adopted 'father', Professor Broom (John Hurt), serving the cause of good rather than evil. When the powerful and evil Nazi wizard who unleashed Hellboy suddenly reappears in modern times, he discovers that Hellboy is now working as a paranormal investigator at a secret U.S. government agency dedicated to protecting humanity from the forces of darkness. Now, Hellboy must fight to prevent the destruction of mankind.
