The franchise ended like it came in. The longest reigning video game to film adaption ever is no more, if they continue it after this, it will be a cash grab.
On to the review.
This is the spoiler free version. There maybe a few plot lines revealed but nothing majorly revealing. Depending in the responses I get from you guys, I will post spoilers in this thread with spoiler tags.
The camera work was nauseating and the film was far to dark. Forget what you know and remove the fact that this is Resident Evil cause they sure did, from open plot holes not being filled and to characters we are introduced to lacking any personality. I advise you to take it with a grain of salt. We see an ad at the beginning of the film with Milla and Paul WS Anderson thanking movie goers for seeing the film. On to the film. It is dark loud and full of jump scares with horrible CGI. I had what they call a delayed headache after the fact, my head as I type this is now pounding. The camera work was awful either the action could not be shown in shot or the action shots was terribly shown with flashes of light simulating muzzle flashes. Flashbacks, flashbacks galore, and more flashbacks. The intent was to get newer Resident Evil fans to buy all the older movies and catch up. No Guns N Roses song was harmed during the 2 hours I sat through this film. With all these factors and this being the final movie of the series it was like watching teeth getting pulled. The monsters introduced was just a mess, you could barely could make out what they were. As you seen in the trailers, they go back to the hive, with the laser hallway and all the other good stuff that made the first film watchable. However that gets shoved to the side over more flashbacks and more darkened rooms. No iconic enemies like Nemesis puts up any fight whatsoever. The only thing this film is good at is mindless action, shut your brain off mindless action. Paul WS Anderson must avoid what critics say cause he did not listen here as the film makes all the mistakes of the older films. Sony Pictures put this out as well, so that is a thing. The music was pretty cool as it brought back the techno style SpecOps music that the first fill had. In fact I think they reused some of the music.
Final rating 3 out of 10, I give the 3 cause I enjoyed the music score.
I will reveal the fate of the world if you guys would be willing to read it.
