You should manage to keep your eyes occupied to a degree that your brain won't even notice until the credits start to roll.

Sometimes you just need to turn off your brain and enjoy some good old-fashioned ultraviolence. Mmmm...brains...

Long running franchises tend to suffer from the same ailment -- the latter installments eventually lose sight of the better aspects of the series.

You know it's dreadful while you watch it, yet you're still paying rapt attention to its vehement anti-genius.

It seems that Anderson was forced to film this with a gun to his head. [Full review in Spanish]

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.

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.

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.

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

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...

Containing almost no story, Resident Evil: Retribution shows the series' video-game origin more than ever.
September 21, 2012
Nobody goes to a Resident Evil movie expecting a classic but this fifth entry in the series is just plain cruddy.
