I don't get the people who trash these movies. What are they expecting? The RE series has never been about superb storytelling, characterization, and acting. It's about style and excitement! And that's what these movies are: High-octane action movies for guys. Especially their inner 14-year olds.

People here spend a lot of time trashing the RE movies, and this movie in particular. Why? It delivers what I've come to expect here. Some awesome action sequences, an interesting (albeit completely nonsensical) storyline, and some really incredible cinematography. What else do you want? I submit that if that's not good enough for you, then you're just watching the wrong kind of movie.

Those who trash the story of Resident Evil: Retribution as "the worst of the lot", or whatever, need to go watch something else. It is what it is. I for one think it is excellent!

I like how the storylines of the movies continue from movie to movie, which each one ending in a cliffhanger. You never know what the next movie will bring! Yeah, the story is complete garbage. But that's what's enjoyable about it! Invite a few friends, have a beer, put your brain firmly in the "off position", and enjoy!

And there's a lot to enjoy here. The awesomeness that is Milla Jovovich cannot be denied. Sure, the character of Alice is weak, and in this movie, she turns into Ripley. But when she's killing zombies with a chain and pistol, it's so awesome I don't care. My brain says, "This sucks." My inner 14-year old says, "THIS IS AWESOME, DUDE!" That's what happens, man. If you want to enjoy it, you just have to surrender to the awesome.

The movie has a lot of interesting ideas. I also like that it took a lot of elements from the RE 4 video game, which I loved.

Resident Evil Retribution 3D Review: Even better 3D than RE: Afterlife

Resident Evil doesn't cater to non-action fans, and Resident Evil Retribution proves this point with it's non-stop action onslaught from the opening credits to the ending.

STEREO 3D:
The 3D in Resident Evil Retribution delivers in spades, being filmed in three dimensions with on the set 3D camera rigs, we get a consistency of powerfully layered visuals, with clear stereo 3D distance between the objects onscreen. There are also plenty of pop outs to flinch away from as bullets and blades fly out of the screen to great effect. This is one of the best 3D movies you can get as Anderson shows he's not only a master of action movies, but stereo 3D scene composition. So if you're looking for another demo worthy 3D disc, look no further than Resident Evil Retribution, boosting the 3D up even more than Resident Evil Afterlife 3D. Exceptional 3D.

STORY:
This movie plays with your head sort of like Inception did, never letting you really know what's going on till about midway when Alice is finally let in on the reality of the situation. A bit jarring at first, but very unique for a RE Film. That aside, the story is fairly basic, from point A to B with some side stories thrown in for good measure. Finally, this fifth RE movie does a nice job paying tribute to the previous RE films in many ways as you'll see.

ACTION:
If you know the Resident Evil series, you'll know there's usually a heavy emphasis on full on action. Retribution lives up to the term "Roller Coaster" by providing nearly non-stop action, literally. Just when Alice (Milla Jovovich) finishes on action scene, another enemy shows up and attacks, leaving little room for story development in between.

ALICE SHOT AND KNIFED ME BETWEEN THE EYES AND I LIVED TO TELL ABOUT IT!!!!! (Not to mention the large axe and giant licker removing my head, etc!) These effects were even better than RE#4. The best effect was when Alice slung the blade at me! I just about **** myself with that one! VERY REAL! It was right there!

Just a note, you do need 3D glasses to see it in 3D. The standard glasses do not fit over prescription glasses. A clip on (to prescription glasses) version of the 3D glasses exists. There is the non 3D version of the movie as well.

The movie opens where RE#4 left off - on top of the Arcadia (freighter) with all the humans released and enjoying their freedom. I was hoping to have K-MART and especially Claire back. We aren't shown it, but are left to assume the worst for them when Umbrella attacks. This in itself added an element of sadness to start it all. The opening scene in reverse was different, sort of a "wish we could go back and try again" in their remembrance. The movie does not pretend they never existed, we do see a few stills of K-MART, Claire & Chris Redfield from RE#4.

The action doesn't slow for very long (just long enough for Alice to get kidnapped, get into a skin tight dominatrix/cat suit, and escape).

I was beginning to think Alice was caught in a RE video game of sorts when the Tokyo sequence fired up around her (same one from the opening of RE#4, same people, same outcome).

Did you like the 12 foot axeman in RE #4? Try 2! Alice and Ada Wong team up to take them down!
This is the New York sequence. Be prepared to get a haircut, a shave, and a beheading!

Part of the zombie mutation this time around seems to be INTELLIGENCE!
