It just may have been the best one...

They had me from the first explosion. The opening credits just may have been the very best that I've seen: Creative, well-shot, original, exciting. Saying more than that would spoil it. After the opening, they provided an overview that they gave to get old and new viewers in the right frame of mind for the action to come. Once the movie started, they never let up---moved quickly and purposefully. The action was just what you'd expect--violent, well-timed, just the right amount of ridiculousness to fulfill your escapist-action needs. Have you ever played a video game where the opener and the cut scenes were just really well done? The kind where you went "how come they can't do these graphics throughout the game?!? That's how the movie was. They even made the live characters look like video-game people (they had "anime hair"). I had fun. I thought the ending/set-up for 'next' movie was a little crazy. But I had so much fun I said "heck, I'll deal with that when the time comes!

It is very "Resident Evil"

Had some very good spooks in it (that would probably look better in 3D) but in general the movie was good and it did follow 100% the Resident Evil style. The only thing that I did not like was the "russian zombies" (don't want to spoil).

Can't say it was my favorite of the series, but I still enjoyed it. Great special effects as usual. Interesting twists to the plot. Lots of action scenes.

No plot, bad characters and development, bad banter/conversation.

I won't give anything away, because there isn't really anything to give away. There's no plot. And I don't mean it was like "Bambi" no plot, I mean it was "like watching paint dry on a wall" no plot. If you played the video games, you will be the most disappointed in this movie over all the others. I thought 4 was just so-so, but it made 4 look like a masterpiece. About 25 minutes in I couldn't stop thinking "When are they going to reveal what the plot is?" Then at 40 minutes in I realized "Never..." and all I could think then is "When will it end?". -1000 out of 10. Don't go see it in theater; I would advise not to see it ever, but if you have to, red box it.

On par with the series

Really enjoyed this installment! It was really well done and explained an important part of the series, but it seemed more of a side story when all said and done. The new biological weapons were really cool. We did not see it in 3D, but I imagine from all the scenes that looked as if they catered to the 3D aspect, it was probably very good in 3D. Alice is and always will be a bad***, which is why I love this series so much. The ending is a typical Resident Evil ending, so be ready. Very well done and use of previous characters in the series. Definitely worth seeing in the theater!
