Saw it a few days ago, enjoyed it.

Ada's casting annoyed me a little since beyond the "Wong" name I've never taken her to be as Asian, always just assumed she was full on Caucasian or half and half since that's how she's been portrayed. But the actress absolutely nailed the performance and was one of the best things about the film.

Barry and Leon was unnecessary. It's been a major flaw of the series that they take characters from the games and then portray them in a totally different way to how they look and act (Jill is the exception to the look and behaviour, Sienna absolutely nailed her in Apocalypse) in the games and majorly undermine the characters in comparison to Superwoman and it's no different in this. Those two could have been anyone else in the world and it would make no difference to the film whatsoever. Thought they looked good though.

The interaction between Alice and Becky was really cute though, but it's just the Ripley/Newt relationship that I've seen in countless videogames and movies, nothing fresh at all.

The whole cloning thing really annoyed me though. They bring back all these characters from Alice's past and she doesn't care in the slightest. There's like one shot of her looking shocked and after that it's never brought up again. They could have told an interesting story but instead they're just cannon fodder. I did enjoy the opening clones though, very strange to see the characters portrayed so differently (i.e. Alice not being all powerful badass).

The action sequences were very, very good. Loved that they recreated the Leon/Ada fight.

Great to see Jill again and Sienna nailed it yet again.

The Wesker thing is just the ultimate facepalm though and just shows that Anderson really does not care in the slightest about continuity.

I liked the nods to the Perry books though. I.E. the training facility is pretty much The Planet from Underworld.


The last shot was insanely cool though and I have to admit, I want to see the battle and resolution of this series.



Hopefully the sequel be the last in the Aliceverse and Sony will have the balls to reboot into straight adaptations. Or at least make a new continuity that doesn't completely rape the games for everything they're worth.

Wow thanks this can be sumarized in it's a movie worth watching once Redbox has it at $1.29 but certainly not to spend 6 to 8 dollars to watch it at a theater. i will see it as soon as RedBox has it. bounce

The movie pros...

1. It has Leon Kennedy in it and Barry Burton as well.
2. It has Ada Wong in her original Asian look and not changed to Caucasian as was inexplicably done in the latest games.

Now i have to say that besides trampling canon and setting the RE live action movie franchise in a whole separate universe from the games. I do not think of the action sequences in the movies as cheesy or poorly performed and they really are not. The plot in most of the movies have been pretty disjointed so far in this one they try to join the essentialy disjointed franchise through what amounts to the lengthiest narration intro by Alice in what consumes 5 to 6 minutes of the film.

although not sure, it seems that Alice never really had a family or siblings of her own because she started out as a clone herself probably from a woman that died long ago at least that's what I gather when Ada explained how the clones are virtually blanks and then given memory imprints.

[Spolier]I kinda liked the ,momma bear attitude Alice took with the cloned little girl in the Raccoon City simulation of the facility.

Albert Wesker doesn't become a good guy, he and the others make an uneasy truce when Red Queen goes Skynet but with BOWs instead of terminators.

The battle between Jill and Alice is epic and Jill mops the floor with Alice all the way through, Alice only saved herself because she managed to remove the control scarab.

Does anyone know what those flying BOWs were at the movie's end?.

The games themselves being of the horror genre have more than plenty of grill cheese on them so that's a very flawed argument against them. The only real argument against the live action franchise is that the continuity completely steps out of game canon and sadly that's how Capcom wanted it. Hopefully as i posted elsewhere one day the rights will revert back to Capcom and maybe by then they will allow the live action franchise to tie in with the games. That being said other than not following canon the action sequences are not done poorly or anything of the sort, the people that say this are just venting their blind hatred and that's all...

Yeah, that ain't happening.

But, I still haven't seen this film either. I doubt it's even still in theatres anyway.

My buddy saw it and as he said it was one of the worst things he had ever seen. Then i suggested him to watch Damn, and he just wowed, as a person who is not fanatical with RE he said that capcom should invest more money in CGI rather then making dumb Alice movies.

The DVDRIP was finally released today on torrent websites so I got round to watching it. All i can say is, 'What has been seen, cannot be unseen'. Seriously what was Paul Anderson thinking? I cant be bothered getting into it as I would be here all day but its without doubt one of the worst 'movies' I have ever seen. And the Ada and Leon actors should not be allowed to call themselves actors. Horrendous stuff.

Afterlife? That's the one with the Executioner from RE5, who gets his head blown off and quarters pour out of him like a pinata right?

God awful movie.
I absolutely hated most of the movie for the following reasons:
1. Barry dies. (F U Anderson!!!)
2. Alice is STILL ALIVE????
3. The Luther Chest Punch. Honestly, the brain is still active 7 minutes after death, so... CPR!!!
4. Cloning is Stupid.
5. Wesker is not the type of person to get soft. He would use others to get things, and doesn't let things go.
6. Why copy RE 4+5, Come on, come up with your own stunts!!!!
7. Where's all that ammo coming from? The don't reload until a certain point where they run out and die.
8. Alice takes a Luther Chest Punch and lives. WTF???

I forgot to mention I saw this movie. I must say, it's way better than Exctinction and Afterlife combined. Especially Afterlife was so atrocious that it would take a really bad movie to be worse.

mass how can you say it was better than them to, i think it was horrible and leons actor is a major disappointment, and i may be the only one but i thought the part with the russian zombies was stupid and cheap. they could have done so much better.

I can say it was better than them because Extinction had horrible story (albeit the action in that was way better) and Afterlife was just a rotten piece of crap that should never have existed in the first place.

I'm not saying this movie is the best movie ever, it was just okay. If I had to score the films, I'd say Genesis = 9/10, Apocalypse = 8-/10, Extinction = 6/10, Afterlife = 2/10 and Retribution = 7.5/10.

There were lots to improve in this one but at least it was better than the previous two.
