Resident Evil: Retribution

This felt like watching the [cut] cut-scenes from a video game. OK, it’s based on a video game, but this umpteenth instalment shows more of the same trademark WS Anderson & Milla Jovovich action that we have seen before. Our heroine wakes in a secret prison and fights her way out – just like most action games. Even the monsters are repeats of previous instalments and the ending sets up for the next instalment – Resident Evil: Overkill?

Resident Evil: Retribution

20121 h 35 min
Overview

The Umbrella Corporation’s deadly T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead. The human race’s last and only hope, Alice, awakens in the heart of Umbrella’s most clandestine operations facility and unveils more of her mysterious past as she delves further into the complex. Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true. Aided by new found allies and familiar friends, Alice must fight to survive long enough to escape a hostile world on the brink of oblivion. The countdown has begun.

The Three Musketeers

While remaining fairly true to the original story, the addition of floating airships (literally), trademark Paul WS Anderson 3D-isms & Milla Jovovich, this felt like a return to the camp outings of previous Musketeers incarnations with a side helping of Resident Evil 3D (wirework, etc, minus monsters). It’s basically a romp, rather than a film. Popcorn required.
