  Could be better

| | See all Raymondo52's reviews (1)

I did feel this was a letdown after seeing the others, it feels they are just trying to play this out to make money. This is a shame as it is starting to kill a good product. Story line was not very good either when compared to previous films, they seemed to have a meaning were this film seemed put together and no story or continuing on from before. I feel they should have made this the last film after seeing how bad this was put together, shame been good up to this one

  It really is time now for a reboot.

Bad acting,slim plotlines,guns with endless supply of bullets - this is what we have all accepted with the RE franchise, and at various degrees,still enjoyed them.Until now.This 'effort' really does take the mickey.Its inane,banal,and just plain stpid.A glorified pop video,that makes the previous films oscar winners Time for a reboot,and create a film closer to the game.Avoid this one.

  A pointless addition to the series.

I realy like the series, of course all sequels some are better than others, but by the end of the great Afterlife it looked like we were to expect the mother of all showdowns for part five. The opening sequence to Retribution is great, slowly rewinding the onslaught on the oil tanker with very flashy visuals and cool music, oh yeah this is going to be great I thought........ then it fast forwards and Alice wakes up in suberbia with a nice family and a deaf daughter and faces a zombie apocalypse at her front door including long dead members of her team. It's similar to Zack Snyder's excellent remake of Dawn of the dead (but not as good). Then things take a turn for the worse and she wakes up in a massive room lying on the umberella logo. The nasty corparation have been cloning and Alice finds she's hidden under the frozen arctic ice in a massive training complex and must battle through different scenario's to escape. Although the movies are based on games, it shouldn't feel like one. Each arena has it's big boss to fight. Director Anderson cannot figure out what Zombies he want's either animalistic flesh eaters, or intelligent Zombie soldiers that can walk in formation, drive trucks, ride motorbikes and fire RPG's. There is no suspence it's just loud and things blow up. There's no attempt for character arc's as the new characters turn up shoot guns and die. There's also no explanation why dead Villain's from the previous films are still alive ( I presume cloning). Massive gaps of logic slap you on the forehead, such as we have a giant licker that kills everything in it's path, but it doesn't kill the little girl. It takes her to it's nest and coccons her Aliens style. All Alice does is find the nest shoot the beast a few times it dies and she get's her out. You are left wondering what was the point in all that?. It's as if Anderson though "I like that bit in Aliens, I'll put it in also" it's that made up as it goes along feel that drags the movie down. It's got no direction and they could have totally missed this chapter out and progressed to the final showdown that the climax of this movie promises for part six. On a positive note Milla Jovovich as always is excellent as ever and although Director Anderson's script is terrible, he does pull off the visual's with some great action, cool moments, and another great music score. I didn't expect Shakespear as I'm a fan of the series and know what I was in for, but I did expect something that progressed the story along to some kind of conclusion. Roll on Res 6:!

  'HUMANITY'S FIGHT CONTINUES'

| | See all rbmusicman's reviews (896)

the war against the virus stricken majority continues.
'alice' is being held at 'umbrella's' underwater research facility.
friends are trying to reach her, 'alice' is needed on the outside.
the facility will present 'alice' and her friends images that are often not real.............
to escape they must fight against the computer controlled enviroment.
an action packed and visual treat.

having seen all the previous films and played the games I have to say I am a great fan of the resident evil franchise, I had been waiting for this film to come out ever since I saw the trailer. I love seeing the reviews of films I read them and I still go and see the film myself, I for one never take reviews seriously unless their good and then I come on and tell my side, people who say this film is bad or not great obviously don't have a great imagination this film has more action, more people from the games and a great story you just don't know what's going to happen next, you would have to be crazy not to love this film. But that's my opinion everyone has their own likes and dislikes but never rely on others for something THEY like its all down to you in the end. Thanks for reading this very long review hope it was kind of helpful.

  Action is great.

| | See all LxGuitarHeroxM's reviews (3)

Given 3 stars purely because of the fight scenes in it. The story is bland, acting is bland and the film is generally dull. Not worth the full price, I'd wait until it goes right down like the others.

The good news being there may only be one left after this!

  "..GREAT FUN.."

| | See all sdx800's reviews (1814)

Yet again another awesome sequel in the brilliant resident evil series, this is a must for fans as these movies are mainly aimed at their major fan base now, the story continues really well with lots more cool twists and turns and the return of very many familiar faces from the past, the effects are top notch as usual and the movie soundtrack is awesome too, Milla jovovich is amazing to watch and her character Alice always gets better, the ending to this one is even more mind blowing than the last so roll on part 6. The 3D is top notch and works well too. Check it out.

  Great Film :)

| | See all beatfreak's reviews (1)

If you are a fan of the other films then you will really like this one. Of course you are going to get people who are fans of the game and who condemn the films out of existence because they dont exactly fit the games. If you are looking for a film that you can watch and enjoy with out thinking to hard then i suggest this film. It's great if you like zombies and explosions; not if you are looking for a deep film with hidden meanings.

  Easily the best Resident Evil film!

| | See all SpiderBoy17's reviews (63)

I really liked this RE movie. it has a lot of action in it a mixture of all different kinds of monsters like the Giant Licker, The Las Plagas soldiers, Zombies and two Executioners. I also think it might be the first Resi Evil film with the most game characters in it. It was super cool to see Leon and Barry both in the film i liked that a lot.

Will defiantly get this on blu-ray to add to my collection.
