Critics Consensus: Resident Evil: Retribution Not Screened -- Guess the Tomatometer!

Plus, Finding Nemo 3D, The Master, and Arbitrage are Certified Fresh.

by |

This week at the movies, we've got a zombie apocalypse (Resident Evil: Retribution, starring Milla Jovovich and Michelle Rodriguez and and a Pixar classic (Finding Nemo 3D, with voice work by Albert Brooks and Ellen DeGeneres). What do the critics have to say?

Resident Evil: Retribution


When the apocalypse comes, the only things likely to survive will be cockroaches and the Resident Evil franchise. Unfortunately, Resident Evil: Retribution wasn't screened for U.S. critics prior to its release, so we can't tell you how it stacks up with its four (critically panned) predecessors. This time out, Alice (Milla Jovovich) takes her fight against the Umbrella Corporation and its hordes of flesh-eating zombies from Japan to America to Russia, learning secrets about her mysterious past along the way. Hey, everyone - it's time to guess the Tomatometer! (And check out this week's Total Recall, in which we run down some noteworthy fifth installments.)

Finding Nemo 3D


Pixar doesn't lack for masterpieces, but Finding Nemo 3D is a jewel that shines particularly brightly in the studio's crown. Upon its release in 2003, it drew raves from the critics and was Pixar's biggest box-office hit until Toy Story 3 came along. Now it's getting the 3D treatment, so audiences can once again bask in this Certified Fresh modern classic about a clownfish on a mission to rescue his son from captivity.
