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.
