Do you like video games? Do you like first person shooters? Do you like to watch someone else play a first person shooter video game, and never be allowed to play yourself? If the answer to all of those is yes, you will love to sit through this movie…maybe. Cause the entire movie to designed around this feeling, that you are forced to watch someone else play a first person shooter video game, right down to the scene changes, level changes, and narration.
This is the third, fourth, maybe fifteenth (who cares) episode in the Resident Evil series. There have been better, but likely won’t be many worse. But good and bad in the Resident Evil franchise is perhaps relative.
If you love action movies, you have to just love Milla Jovovich. She’s drop dead pretty, a good actress, excellent in fight scenes and unlike most action stars, she can play the whole range of emotions. She’s always a treat to watch. I wish I could say the same for Resident Evil Retribution. But it simply is not a lot of fun to watch.
