The Final Curtain is the fifty-first cutscene in Resident Evil 5, playing during "Chapter 6-3". In the Japanese script, it is known as "Final battle" (最終決戦 Saishū kessen?).[1] All cutscenes for the game were storyboarded by yU+co. artist, Jerry Bingham.[2]


Upon disembarking from the downed assault bomber, Chris Redfield and Sheva Alomar observe their surroundings inside a volcano. Meanwhile, Albert Wesker, having survived and regenerated fully from being jettisoned out of the plane and being shot in the head, albeit without his shirt or coat, staggers over to them while on top of the plane. Wesker then states that he should have killed Chris when he had the chance several years ago, revealing his presence to the two causing them to turn around and point their guns at him, before saying Chris's name in a venomous tone. Chris then acknowledges it as Wesker's mistake and tells him his plans are over. Wesker, however, proceeds to laugh ominously at the idea that it is over, and then tells them that he's in fact only getting started. Wesker then thrusts his right arm into a still-intact Uroboros missile, deliberately infecting himself with it, and proceeded to use the remaining circuitry and metal from the missile as weaponry at the cost of his human arm while cackling at the spread of infection. Wesker then informs Chris that he will now die, and then jumps down to confront the two, ominously walking towards them.


Albert Wesker: I should have killed you years ago... Chris.

Chris Redfield: Your mistake. It's over, Wesker!

Albert Wesker: Over? I'm just getting started. Time to die, Chris.
