Movie Review: "Resident Evil: Retribution"



The real mystery behind the Umbrella Corporation: "How can the Resident Evil franchise never die!?"

Clearly zombie franchises are just as hard to kill as their subject matter!

Resident Evil: Retribution is the FIFTH instalment in this series, which has given us Resident Evil (duh), then Resident Evil: Apocalypse (which would hint at the end of the world, if not the franchise at least), which begat Resident Evil: Extinction (surely the end with a name like that no?)...

Then they got trickier with the naming convention, as they brought this franchise back from the dead with Resident Evil: Afterlife.






So how was it? Well Milla Jovovich is still sexy... But I left the theatre in a stupor from what I had experienced. I'm sure they saved a lot of money by not hiring a writer for this one.

The basic experience was akin to watching someone play a videogame. Except videogames generally have a little more plot -- buuuut with the same wooden acting.

  2. And I thought I'd chosen the lesser of two evils that night. Pun not intended.

The Great Way is not difficult for those who have no preferences.
When love and hate are both absent everything becomes clear and undisguised.
Make the smallest distinction however and heaven and earth are set infinitely apart.
