Quick Reviews: Resident Evil:Retribution.


Star Rating : ★★★★☆

Another instalment in the derided franchise arrives in cinemas this week.I personally feel that critics are far too harsh on the series as a whole.The movies are made for the fan boys and not as serious contenders for the Oscars. If you didn't like the rest of the movies, you really won't like this one, so stop reading now.

The movie takes off directly from the previous instalment and gives you a bit of a recap of the series.Then,no messing around, straight into the action. The plot follows Alice's (Milla Jovovich) attempt to escape and fight her way through an underground facility filled with mutated zombies and clones. And that's pretty much the whole movie.

Reasons to See this Movie

Some of the action sequences could easily rival any in The Matrix.
The Special Effects and 3D are some of the best I've seen in a while.
If you like mutated zombie Communists,there's plenty of them.
The ending promises a very exciting sequel/end to the series of movies..think World War Z.

Reasons to Not See this Movie

Its a Resident Evil Movie.
The acting and plot are not Oscar grade material.
You are easily offended by the inclusion of mutated zombie Communists in movies.

Should I see This Movie? 

Yes....yes you should. I liked the movie quiet a bit. It's a fun popcorn action movie that delivers exactly what it promises. I enjoyed it far more than the disappointing Expendables 2 . Its not the perfect movie, but its better than alot of the crap that passes as blockbusters these days. Embrace your inner 15 year old boy and leave the cynicism aside and you should enjoy it too.
