(I think those Hollywood R.Evil movies would be better without Chris, Jill, Leon, Claire, etc.. After all, everybody in RE universe would be doing their best to survive, and there would be plenty of room for a lot of people to live in that universe, without even ever cross path with REvil game characters)
But it was the first try, and... gosh, they made terrible mistakes. First, the facial mocap made Leon ressemble a robot.
(although Claire is just perfect. So I guess was the acting for Leon, because in Damnation director Makoto Kamiya asked all the actors to exagerate facial expressions)
Second think that irritated me: Angela character. I was very much annoyed by Ashley Graham "Leon help me" all the time in game REvil4, but a Special Response Team member should be less helpless than Ashley, shouldn't she? But Angela was made only to carry a gun arround, because Leon was the one that always saved her... Ashley would be better, definitely. At least she was really helpless.
The worse is the ending. I would advice you to stop the movie after the bad guys go to prision. Do not continue. Because if you do, you will see the worst dress I've ever seen in a female character (My gramma would not use a dress like that!). And that ending will not add anything meaninful for REvil universe, believe me.
I guess it is just OK, because at least the plot - even with this useless sidekick - add something to REvil story. Beginning with a uncontrolled virus in RE 1 and 2, trying to controll through REvil 4 through Las Plagas and mixing it with Degeneration (Virus and Vaccine), things are being conducted to REvil 5 and 6.
But keep only on the story, because everything else (except Claire) was very hard to endure withnot turning off my BD.
I was pleased to see that Leon is voiced by the same actor who played him in RE4. Problem is Leon looks a little bit off. Let me step back for a moment and say that the United States is clearly ahead of Japan in terms of computer generated visuals. The big problem in Degeneration is that even the living characters look undead. It appears to me that what the animators did was model the faces add some blinking and mouth movement and call it a day. The problem is it creates a very odd plastic look as if all the characters were wearing masks. The face they modeled for Leon looks like Leon except in a permanent scowl and his eyes are obscured by the shadow of his brow so you can scarcely see them. Clair looks even worse with an unexplainably odd mouth rendering. The still shots look fine but her facial movements just aren't working and character motions often look mechanical.
I really wanted to like this one. Unlike the live action movies it's put out by Capcom so I assume that it will be integrated into the series canon and I would expect to see it referenced in future games. Too bad the plot is so flat and uninspiring that maybe it doesn't even matter. There are no interesting characters like Luis Sera, Krauser, Saddler, Salazar and Chief Mendez. In Degeneration we get the laughably evil Senator Ron Davis, Fredrick Downing, Curtis Miller and Leon's potential love interest, the forgettable Angela Miller.
My only complaint with RE 4 was that it wasn't scary. It was often creepy but never scary. Degeneration takes it even further by being neither scary nor creepy. That's not quite true; the mannequin like appearances of the characters is kinda creepy. Degeneration is pure action which seems to be the unfortunate direction that Capcom is taking the series. The extra features are actually pretty good and if you watch the preview for Resident Evil 5 there is a clear tie to Degeneration. This is a pretty exciting time for Resident Evil fans and I hope they continue to make these movies but this first effort is pretty disappointing with a lot of room for improvement.
