Resident Evil: Retribution

Boom! Boom! Boom! Run…Run… Squint. Squint. More Boom! Boom! Boom!
That pretty much sums up the plot of Resident Evil: Retribution.


If you’re a young gamer, you’ll probably enjoy this.  I mean, what young man (or, face it, even older man) doesn’t enjoy looking at Milla Jovovich for an hour and a half?

But this fifth edition of the Resident Evil franchise is wearing thin.  The story (and I use that term loosely) is basically same old, same old.  Even the 3D and the effects don’t add much kick.  And, you’d think that after all she’s been through, writer/director Paul W. S. Anderson wouldn’t put the Alice character in some of the dumb situations she faces.

Milla Jovovich is actually a fine actress and a good singer, as well.  She obviously is making a fortune off this franchise, but she deserves a project that would let her show how capable she really is.

I’m giving it a 2 out of 5 only for Milla still looking hot.
