This time 'round, characters from past Resident Evil movies make a reappearance. Michelle Rodriguez, Colin Salmon, and Oded Fehr return as Rain Ocampo, James Shade, and Carlos Olivera, but not in the way you'd expect (or maybe you already have). Alice must make her way out of a secret underground Umbrella research facility with the aid of Ada Wong, an ex-Umbrella operative now working alongside the infamous Albert Wesker, who has also abandoned Umbrella in the hopes of getting Alice out of the facility alive.Read more ›
You can't easily translate everything from a medium that you interact with to a medium that you have no control over and have to just sit and watch. The more outrageous the creatures were in the games made it that much more satisfying to shoot them down. But that doesn't always translate into movies. For example I found adding creatures like the "Licker", with its bad CGI (how else could you do it) into the movies just made it look ridiculous. I think the directors were smart to limit that kind of interaction.
Having said all that I think his one was the weakest entry of all the resident evil movies. I think they tried to tie too much of the Resident Evil franchise into this movie. Too many Resident Evil characters thrown in just to satisfy the game fans, should have focused more on a basic story as the other movies did. The movie had its moments but the last part when they escape to the surface onto the snow and have that extended heavy choreographed fight scenes just added to the silliness.
As usual, the set pieces and special effects, for the most part are quite good considering these aren't big budget pictures.
In our soon to be released video game based on the film, the main character (Milla Jovovich) wakes up in a strange location wearing a skimpy towel. There will be a nude patch that you can download for the game that the manufacturer will swear it had nothing to do with. You then have 2 minutes to find your clothes and escape during a computer failure, one that is poorly designed and defaults to open the door and return your clothes. Once outside you will need to quickly locate weapons and kill low level mutants to level up. You are then forced to return to the facility. Here you team up with someone (Bingbing Li) who looks like Tifa Lockhart (FF VII). You gather as may weapons as you can. Make sure to take extra weapons to arm any future new members of your party.
You now have 2 hours to escape the underground area by passing through models of various cities. You kill mutants for points and save humans who you can add to your party while you go to the rendezvous location to meet up with your rescue squad. Due to the cloning nature of the facility you can meet up with people from previous films who couldn't possibly be here. The film ends at a point where we can have a CG sequel and video game.
5 star movie if you love watching someone else play a video game.
Parental Guide: I don't recall any F-bombs, although don't hold me to that. No sex. No nudity, but skimpy outfits

This is the 5th installment of the RE franchise. I think all of the Resident Evil movies are amazing. You will not regret getting this movie or any of them. Read morePublished 1 month ago by OLGA S.
