Plot hole: At the beginning the Red Queen said that the last human settlement will fall in 48 hours unless Alice releases the anti-virus, however when Alice does release the anti-virus (a few seconds before the timer ends) she says it will take years for it to reach around all the corners of the globe, this does not make sense and implies that the last human settlement will fall anyway.

Suggested correction: I think you misunderstood what was happening. The human settlements were not being killed by the virus. They were being attacked by forces from the Umbrella corporation. The Red Queen explains in the final scene that once Alice killed Dr. Isaacs and released the anti-virus, she was able to take control of Umbrella and stop the attacks, saving the settlements.

That doesn't make really sense. What umbrella employees are left to do that? Also it's just bad writing.

The forces might not necessarily be Umbrella employees. They could be controlled creatures, clones or any of the other forces Umbrella has been shown to possess throughout the six movies. You can basically pick your poison, because Umbrella has been depicted as having near-limitless resources. Regardless, the movie does offer an explanation, and this particular mistake is incorrect because it is contrary to what the movie told us. Plus, like it or not, bad writing isn't necessarily a mistake in and of itself.

Trivia: While the film had the lowest domestic gross of the series ($26 million in comparison to the $40-$60 million each other film grossed), it was somewhat ironically also the highest grossing film of the franchise internationally, and as a result also ended up being the highest grossing film of the series worldwide, earning $312 million against a $40 million budget. It serves as a rare example of a film that is a flop in domestic markets while still technically being a resounding success.

Question: In Resident Evil Extinction, the White Queen says Alice's blood is the cure for the whole infection. So what the heck was everyone doing the whole time? Why act so surprised to find a cure, which by the way came out of nowhere, when you were the cure the entire time?

Answer: In all honestly... this film series isn't one to shy away from ret-conning elements of prior films. ("Ret-con" being short for "retroactive continuity" - a storytelling device in which rules and plot-points are either changed or ignored in later installments.) This just seems to be another example of a ret-con. The idea that Alice was the "cure" all along would have ended the series a lot sooner, and they wanted to make more movies, so they just sort-of "ignored" this idea in the sequels that followed "Extinction."
