Never understood the backlash/bad press the RE movies got based on the video games of the same name. Yes they'll never win any Oscars but they're good popcorn movies, with plenty of "game reference", switch off your brain for 90 minutes and have fun. Picked up the blu-ray at a great price and will finish my collection of other blu-ray's in the series, until they add another final, final RE movie, Welcome to Racoon City anyone? :D
Big fan of this franchise, It might not be everyone's cup of tea but still they are the most successful game to film franchise ever. The movies are always action packed and the storylines have always been pretty good too. Even if some of the earlier movies lacked that final cutting edge to make them great movies they are always enjoyable to watch. The later movies in this franchise have benefited massively from the 3D format and look great with Paul W.S Anderson filming the last few with proper 3D rigs. Sadly this one wasn't shot in 3D, rather it was converted but it is still in IMAX 3D and looks great. A great way to end the franchise.
Getting the negative out of the way, my problems with the film have nothing to do with the acting or story, it is the jump cuts, shaky cam and editing, the transitions and fight scenes are fast paste, cutting from angles and views quickly which make it hard to follow. Also Albert Wesker is wasted and under used in this movie.
The story is good enough, the acting is fine, as you'd expect from a Resi film, Milla Jovovich and Ian Glenn (Dr Issacs,) stand out in particular, in my opinion, with good performances from Shawn Roberts (Albert Wesker,) and Ali Larter (Clair Redfield,)
This is very much in line with the last couple of films in the series. A load of things happen for no real discernible order and there are some action scenes to while away the time, all held together by Milla Jovoviches cleavage (impressive on this display) and Ian Glenn demeaning himself in something he is too good for. I enjoyed it for what it was and knew what to expect, it isn't by any stretch of the imagination a 'good' film but it passed a couple of hours away and had some cool scenes.
I do not care what the "critics" said, I really enjoyed this movie. Granted, I think the 4K HDR elevated it somewhat, but it is a pretty good action film. Lain Glen makes the perfect bad guy and is great in this. The 4K picture is really nice, with only a few scenes that get a bit grainy. HDR looks nice, colours really stand out depending of course on the quality of your TV.
This is the final chapter, in 3-D, had to buy it. With that said, I'm glad I did, it's not a bad movie in anyway shape or form, as a matter fact I think it's pretty good. It keeps in line with the arc they have started from the beginning, and brought it to a fine conclusion. As for the 3-D, I think it's pretty good. Some parts seem stronger than others, which is like most of the 3-D we see nowadays. But I enjoyed it, and very glad I purchased it.
A mindless monster fest... just like I wanted... Resident evil carries on ! This is region specific, I am curious as to why production companies in this day and age try to limit your ability to buy movies. if you are looking at the 3d version you already know it was not released in the US ( and when or if it is it will be for more money) be aware that the Ultra violet copy is also region specific. I suggest buying the bare bones version with as little as possible instead of purchasing a multi format so you don't have to mess with it.
