Not as bad as I expected it to be (I guess)

Probably a rental if you are into the series. C- acting at best and a plot that makes no sense. It looks like they left an opening for another sequel.

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.

Resident Evil Not at Home

By PBPAncien
Written September 15, 2012
Although many of the acrobatic combat maneuvers by Milla were crazy great to see as usual and she did a fine job, the movie in general disappointed. Although I am not a Resident Evil gamer, I have greatly enjoyed all the movies up to this point. Previous movies seemed to take the essence of the STORY of the game and then adapt it to the movie genre and movie audience. However, Evil Goes Global seemed to be less of a translation of a video game to the movie format than just a filming of the game format. The transitions from "crisis" to "crisis", the use of a countdown timer, the need to use a device to "find a way out" of a fatal situation, etc all screamed game and not movie. Additionally, with few exceptions, the acting of the characters other than Alice were sophomoric. Disappointing. I'm still glad I saw it as I still enjoyed some of the battle scenes and Milla's character but overall it was not up to par wit the rest of the series.
