Resident Evil Retribution (2012)

Thanks to Nuffnang, I got to catch the premiere screening of Resident Evil Retribution two weeks ago :D

The wildly successful film franchise adaptation that has grossed nearly $700 million worldwide to the popular video game series, Resident Evil, returns in its highly anticipated fifth installment, RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION, written and directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, in state-of-the art 3D.

The Umbrella Corporation’s deadly T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead. The human race’s last and only hope, ALICE (Milla Jovovich), awakens in the heart of Umbrella’s most clandestine operations facility and unveils more of her mysterious past as she delves further into the complex. Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true. Aided by newfound allies and familiar friends, Alice must fight to survive long enough to escape a hostile world on the brink of oblivion. The countdown has begun.

Verdict: 5.5/10. Sadly, I don't think I can go any higher with this verdict. I was too disappointed with the storyline. Basically, they just kicked some ass at some secret facility belonging to Umbrella Corp, and after they got to the surface, I thought they would have extra scenes dealing with the actual Umbrella Corp above ground. BUT, the movie ended. the climax was anti-climactic, and the ending was meh :( Though there was some eye candy for the guys in the form of Li Bing Bing, but apart from that, there wasn't much to look forward to. I hate to say it, but please don't waste your money watching this in the cinemas.
