Resident Evil: Retribution: Blu Ray Review
Released by Sony Home Entertainment
So, the fifth film in the Res Evil series hits the small screen.
Milla Jovovich reprises her role as Alice being forced to escape out of the evil clutches of the Umbrella Corporation where the T virus has run amok. So, once again, gathering together guns and some familiar faces, it's upto Alice to blast her way out and save the day - but not everything she faces this time is real....
If you're expecting plot, character and depth of exposition with Resident Evil: Retribution, I think you're at the wrong place.
However, if you're after stylish shooting of things, slow mo shots and lots of explosions, welcome on in, close the door and settle on in for a night's fun. It starts off very slickly with an action sequence played backwards and impresses visually, but to be honest, aside from a few visual flourishes here and there, it's all been done before.
It feels like a video game, and plays out like one - but to be honest, fans will adore it and with news a sixth is planned, the franchise lives on - despite continual critical panning and offering little else new or original.
