Resident Evil: Retribution Reviews

Anderson is often mistakenly dismissed as a hack but the artist is actually working within the confines of Hollywood genre cinema, constantly transcending and elevating it through the triumph of his avant-garde visual sensibility.

Any unfortunate souls who wander in with no prior Resident Evil experience will wonder how something this anemic and shallow was ever popular. You and me both, friends.

Looks are absolutely everything in Retribution, which melds stunning 3-D computer-graphics and spectacular sets with a skimpy storyline and zero characterization.

Screendaily

More high-calorie, low-sense, audiovisual CGI stimulation arrives in the form of this fifth and most roundly unsatisfying entry in the previously lithe and fun videogame franchise.

It has a Rolls with spinning hub caps - what more do you want?

More of the same idiotic swill that Anderson feeds his numbskull fan base.

It's a funny thing about Jovovich as Alice: she gives the character just enough personality, but not enough to break the somber apocalyptic mood.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The Resident Evil films are not everyone's bag, although they seem to be evolving into their own brand of hyper-stylized cheese, made more extreme with each outing.

"Retribution" has actually got some very decent action and 3D effects. The story is still razor-thin. But, by the end of it all, I was ready for the next sequel, the presumed finale.

Lyles' Movie Files

For those of us who know what we're in for with the series, the fifth installment is for better or worse, more of the same - albeit with the familiar levels of ridiculousness from its maddeningly inconsistent director/writer

You can put as much gloss on top of the shaky foundations and wooden acting as possible but as soon becomes apparent - you can't varnish a turd.

If you liked the other Resident Evil films, you'll like this, and the end suggests there'll be plenty more.

The ending threatens yet more. Let's hope the fates intervene and put Paul and Milla in divorce court before then.

More than ever, forgoes real attempts at character and story for lots of repetitive zombie skirmishes.

Resident Evil: Retribution is style-over-substance in every possible definition of the concept.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Even noisier, more incoherent, and more like watching someone play a shooter-style video game than its predecessors.

Jeffrey M. Anderson
Common Sense Media

While the last movie felt clean and more character-focused, this one seems a good deal lazier, both in the writing and directing departments.

'Regurgitation' might be a more appropriate subtitle for this redundant fifth go-round...

Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)

Containing almost no story, Resident Evil: Retribution shows the series' video-game origin more than ever.

Nobody goes to a Resident Evil movie expecting a classic but this fifth entry in the series is just plain cruddy.
