For me, that is how I felt about this movie. I was not a game player, and have seen all the films as a storyling, but this movie "feels" like I imagine the video game feels. Taking place almost entirely in an Umbrella Corp. facility, it plays out just like a level in the game. The action is non-stop, the characters are familiar and the storyline is a good one - they wrap up some hanging threads and leave you wanting more. I recommend seeing it in the theatre, the beginning redux is to die for. Overall fun, a good length with no wasted time, and a very fine way of leaving you with a satisfaction that other films do not. SEE IT!

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.

There's no point in making this movie it should of ended in the last one. the story goes into another direction and as you are watching the movie it gets kind of old, you are expecting to see whats gonna happen next and it never does, it takes place in the same spot, the whole film I felt like if was watching a power rangers series , what the heck happen to their budget or story line ? they didn't even had a good soundtrack to the film . you realize in the middle of the film that this is pointless .should of known when i saw the preview ...

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! :)

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.
