and done!...just finished Resident Evil 1-5 in one go..well I saw Retribution a week back but 1-4 was back to back.
The first reason for me to watch RE was definitely Mrs Anderson = Milla Jovovich. Sorta a big fan of her (after SMG of course), had a crush on her since Fifth Element (a fav) plus she's sorta like my best substitute for Lt Ellen Ripley. Another reason is I love the game!...I'm not really a gamer but Resident Evil and Silent Hill are some of the few games that I actually finished and really really enjoyed...and when I heard there's a movie of it...whopeedo was I overjoyed. And so here you go RE franchise 1-5
Watching this one back particularly was a hoot, cause I automatically went back to first time I saw this flick at the cinema..a lot of movie-goers were definitely excited. When Milla did a spin kick to the devil dog people start applauding in the cinema..this was a first to me...ahh sweet memories when I was young.
Zombies, we still have your basic zombies..still cool. The Axe Wielding zombies (yeah more than 1) are also back and contributes to one fine action scene...and then they added Nazi Zombies! which was funny to watch cause it kept reminding me of that movie Dead Snow 2007 (cool flick watch it if you have the time)
Plotwise I like this one, it made a whole lot a sense more than the previous entries...AND It felt like the RE game back. Those maps are important yo!.Paul Anderson helms the director chair again..and this time he uses his eye for visual fx nicely. I like..like! the backwards slow motion scene at the beginning...that was really well made and thought of.
What I don't like...the last fight was pretty boring..and the end scene made me scared for the future RE films...let's hope Mr. Anderson can pull of something in the next installment...but overall Retribution is I should say..the best sequel out of the 4...the end.
