However earlier than Li and Alice take off, Li cryptically cracks a joke to James: “Say hello to your mom for me.”

Because the aircraft takes off, the true stakes of the film come into focus. A Russian cell is proven to have a monitoring program that reveals Overwatch’s secret location and when their commander provides the go-ahead, assassins homicide everybody at Overwatch headquarters.

We quickly be taught that the whole mission of transporting Li was truly a covert operation that the Russians had been finishing up as revenge for the loss of life of Vera’s son.

As Overwatch headquarters is being attacked, Li concurrently takes over the aircraft and presumably shoots everybody on board. However the scene is tellingly ambiguous. Because the majority of this movie is filled with gory deaths proven in minute element, the truth that audiences don’t explicitly see Alice die is sufficient to counsel that there’s extra to the story than meets the attention. 

The film ends with James getting down to discover Li and get his personal revenge, so the opportunity of a shock look by Alice in any subsequent movies wouldn’t be out of the realm of chance. We’ll simply have to attend and discover out.
