Resident Evil: Retribution Flogging A Dead Zombie Horse

Slick and stylish graphics, maybe, but unfortunately this Resident Evil offerings’ plot carried no great suspense or foreboding. In fact,  predicting who would survive and who would be killed off in order to dramatize the potential dangers faced by the main characters couldn’t have been more obvious had they been wearing a number on then back of their shirts.

Resident Evil: Retribution did, at least, have a few enjoyable scenes, such as the ones set in American Suburbia. Overall, however, this movie felt like a very mild bit of foreplay ahead of what was hinted at at the end of this 96 minute rehash. I just hope that one goes off with a bang. I’m still a fan of the brand, of course, I’m just glad I stopped going to the cinema to watch them after the abomination which was Resident Evil: Apocalypse.

Hi, My name is James Atticus and I have had a keen passion for movies ever since being blown away while watching 'A Trip to the Moon' back in 1902. Hardly surprisingly, I am a big sci-fi and horror fan, although my love of film extends throughout all the genres. One of my favourite quotes about cinema was told to me by Alfred Hitchcock, who said: "For me, the cinema is not a slice of life, but a piece of cake." To which I replied, "Don't mind if I do!"
