Overall the movie was good and the effects were great. When Retribution was first announced, it was supposed to be over 2 hours long. Why did the director cut over 40 minutes from the movie? I believe this cut hurt the movie overall. The cut probably had more story and content we missed at the movies. I know it will get a blu-ray extended version but it should have never been cut from original format. See Wiki for original run time. Good movie, but I'd wait until you can actually see the entire movie on Blu-ray release date. I look forward to watching the original score not cut.

Where shall I begin my fellow movie lovers? I saw this movie at its opening show since I am a big fan of Resident Evil movies. This movie has killed all the previous Resident Evil movies for not being better but being the worst Resident Evil movie ever and also the worst movie Milla Jovovich has ever been a part of. What a shame ! For any Resident Evil fan this movie is like a spit on the face. Basically this movie looks like it has been rushed and made in a week or even less because the story is awful, but wait I take my word back because there is no story in this one at all. The story, plot, and script do not exist in this movie. I basically do not even call this a movie because it does not have the required elements that a movie must have. I seriously recommend any one (Even if you are not a Resident Evil Fan) to not see this movie why is that, it's because what you have already seen in the trailers for this movie that's all the action there is.

I haven't seen the other movies in the series, but the plot is absurd, the characters are shallow and the dialogue is extremely predictable. (I say this as somebody who loves good sci-fi and has played computer games for almost 30 years). I don't understand how a good actress can waste her career on something like this.

I gotta tell you guys, this movie met my expectations. This movie is obviously a low budget one comparing to the movies coming out today, but an abundance of awesome characters from the games and a lot of fighting sequences make this movie a must see. It is sad that RE movie series is ending, and I hope the next part will be as good. Go see this movie! :)

Loved the first. Liked 2 and 3. 4 and 5 left me cold. This reminded me of Ultraviolet than Resident Evil. i'm pretty easy to please when it comes to movies. i can usually look past poor dialog, acting or directing. But in this case it detracted so much from everything else that it was hard to enjoy the normally fun stuff.
Milla, if you're going to do RE6, have someone else write and direct it.
