A zombie plague may have laid waste the world, but apparently supplies of black leather unitards have yet to be exhausted.

Although the reception is negative but this movie is the best movie of resident evil series.

You've forgotten - the first one was actually decent. That's why they made the four subsequent, sucky ones.

Himanshu pant is hilarious. He's seriously posted the same exact thing in every negative review. He's gonna have a lot of copy-pasting to do for this movie.

I dont understand why people like this series, and defend this movie. It has no redeeming qualitys, the acting is shit, the 3d is shit, the cgi is shit but the story was decent.. oh wait there is no story, and no explaining of any events in this movie. A 1 out of 10, a failure on every level. All of the movies in this series is shit except for the 2nd IMO cause i like zombie anarchy in the city. Bottom line these need to stop.

This was.. just.. terrible. I love Michelle Rodriguez I do.. and honestly her and the child were the only one's I really enjoyed throughout the movie. Sad they gave her such a shitty final line. The only other part of the movie that made me even CONTEMPLATE going to the next resident evil was the very end. Otherwise my god that was a waste of 2 hours.

I totally disagree with your review on this movie. Yes, the acting is a little cruddy and the story could use work, but that's what you have to expect when seeing a movie like this. It was originally based on a video game, so what are you gonna expect? I went into the movie knowing that it wont grab my attention through the story and characters, but through the amazing visuals it presents via 3D, slow-motion, and epic scenes. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who can except the story for what it is and let yourself enjoy it for its stunning fight and chase sequences that keep you on the edge of your seat, along with the epic movie score. Great movie, seeing it for the third time this weekend!

So you draw the line at leather unitards because they are unrealistic but not giant axe-wielding zombies or lickers? This is an oddly unfair critique of RE: Retribution that sounds like you already had your review written before even seeing it. How are you even employed with the New York Times with shoddy reviews like this?
