Don't get me wrong they are so hot but their hotness doesn't make up for the lack of plot. It was one long action scene thats all!

This like the others in the line, is a very good movie. I was hooked from start to finish. I'm only surprised Rebecca Chambers wasn't in none of these. The fights between Alice and Ada versus the two Majinis with the axes will always be remembered in my head. Barry was a trooper till the end. If you haven't seen this, go see it, you won't be dsiappointed. Here's hoping in the final one which will be the 6th one, the director goes all out and put everyone who didn't die from previous films together to face the final fight, plus put a spin on it and have Spencer the creater of the virus, and Wesker have a heart to heart talk, then he is killed by Wesker like from RE5. Then for the finale, the final 5 survivors: Claire, Chris, Jill, Leon, and Alice versus Wesker and in the end Alice dies, because overall the game story follows everyone else.

I saw it on/in Imax 3-D. I have to agree with many of the other reviews I have read here: this installment is better than the last 2, but too flawed to stand alongside of the earliest installment(s) of the series.
On the strong side: There are some very stylized/engaging visual sequences. The first 10 minutes + some other scenes were artfully rendered--almost like a avant-garde Samurai movie. The soundtrack was impressive. Yes,lots of explosions, but also many eerie/sad/powerful melodies that infused scenes with a sort of dark,ominous grace (reminiscent of Matrix,Dark City,or Inception). If you are a long-time series fan, you'll like the (re)appearance of many familiar faces.
The negative(s): WEAK writing and plot. Whenever you need a character to tell Alice (so as to tell the audience) where they were and what's supposed to happen next, it's sloppy story telling and writing. Alice had supposedly lost her superpowers,but yet she kicks, jumps and acts the same--really??

RE 5 picks up the story from the end of Afterlife. Number 5 tops the rest. Paul Anderson gives us a different take on some of the same characters, while bringing other video game characters into the story line in a twisted way which brings the story back to full circle which has no doubt, aligned all the Video Games Characters with The Movies. I look forward to seeing how Mr. Anderson will end closing the story as he clearly left the ending open for one more chapter to complete the series which should pit Alice against the Red Queen herself in the final RE installment..

I think Milla is getting older for this action things, or so it looks like. Some of the plot is nonsense and the "bad guy" looks like Duke Nuhem
Anyway, for an action flick it's ok, but too cartoonish they have become...
