Sheep Movie Review: Resident Evil:Retribution

Director: Paul W.S. Anderson
Stars: Milla Jovovich, Sienna Guillory and Michelle Rodriguez

Rated: R

The Umbrella Corporation’s deadly T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead. The human race’s last and only hope, ALICE (Milla Jovovich), awakens in the heart of Umbrella's most clandestine operations facility and unveils more of her mysterious past as she delves further into the complex. Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true. Aided by newfound allies and familiar friends, Alice must fight to survive long enough to escape a hostile world on the brink of oblivion. The countdown has begun.

I saw this in 3D and the best 3D effects were in the opening sequence, which was a neat opening sequence I thought. In the opening sequence we're taken back to the ship that Alice and crew were on in Resident Evil Afterlife (this is where this movie picks up from) and everything is played back in slow motion leading up to the explosion of the ship. Now if you haven't seen the previous movies and decide you're interested can basically skip the previous 4 because they re-cap everything leading up to where this story picks up. Now the plotline suggest something grandiose but let's just put it out on the table we don't come to this movie series for a deep, amazing plot. I continue to come back to the Resident Evil series because I enjoy watching Milla Jovovich and her badassness and there's usually some great fight sequences set to some great music.

Alice about to take down zombie Jackie Chan. 
Overall the plot is pretty thin; however this isn't a plot driven movie, this is a "let's see how many explosions we can create and zombies we can kill" kind of movie and I'm all for it! It's a good popcorn movie, something fun to do if bored and it entertained us. It was good to see some familiar faces; had some great fight scenes, great soundtrack, lots of zombie kills, and lots of explosions. There's also lots of Milla kicking butt in a rather ridiculous outfit and boots that I wouldn't reach for in the closet for when I'm getting ready to be running, flipping, jumping, and kicking butt in. I mean seriously...those huge wedge heeled thigh high boots cannot be conducive to ice, snow, wet streets, and basically anything else aside from looking cool in the closet.

I give Resident Evil: Retribution...3 Umbrella Corporation sheep

  1. I don't know why but I could never get into these movies. I love her outfits and the fact that she's kicking so much ass.

    Zombie Jackie Chan is pretty funny! Nice review Bunni. :)
