It makes me laugh when reviewers like Chris Tookie in the Daily Mail try to review Resident Evil films like serious movies. Paul WS Anderson knows his audience and what they want and its for them that he makes these films, and he is a master at it.
Mrs Anderson aka Milla Jovovic is the key that holds these films together and she is a master (mistress?) at it as she fights her way through yet another Umbrella Corporation nightmare even finding time to display her human side when she encounters a young deaf girl who has been cloned to believe she is her mother.
And it is through the magic of cloning that we againget to meet a whole host of returning RE favourites like Rain and Jill Valentine.
The film opens with the opening sequence running in reverse slow motion and it works a treat making the same scene in realtime when it arrives even more enjoyable.
The other thing that Paul WS Anderson is a master of is 3D and this movie is superb in this format. Yes there are a few thrill shots but overall he settles for great depth of field and scenes like where an axe pick flies off to one side of the screen accompanied by the appropriate sound effect are outstanding.
Like they say about all guilty secrets - go on....you know you want it!

As a big Resident Evil fan I've continued to watch these films despite them being pretty poor. Out of all the films in the series so far this is by far the worst.

Basically to sum it up it's non stop action right from the start with very little (pointless) story. Throw in a few popular characters from the game for no reason and you've got the latest installment in the Resident Evil film franchise.

No one seems to stay dead (and not in the zombie sense) with everybody getting cloned over and over. It makes death hold a lot less weight throughout the film, taking away any potential tension that might be left over. Also it just seems as though old characters, who have been brought back to life, have been thrown into the story just for the hell of it.

So we see a couple of new additions from the game frnachise show up, which in theory should be a good thing, but they have no story, no history, and no real character. They are just there as filler material as a final attempt to satisfy fans. To me the whole thing just felt needless.

Throughout Umbrellas motives just seem downright rediculous, and their secret labs are getting easier and easier to break into. What should be an exciting antagonist is just poor and pointless throughout, making very little sense.

So, if you're up for some non stop action that makes a mockery of anything Resident Evil then dive on in! It's ok if you just fancy some very casual action that requires no brain activity, but if you're after anything more then give this a miss. Hopefully this franchise will die soon.

Since number 4, this series has skewed far more heavily in favour of flashy gunfights with nefarious Umbrella employees and occasional encounters with giant monsters, and paid far less attention to zombies. Admittedly, the first three movies weren't exactly rich examples of emotional depth, but they at least tried to give us enduring characters that had more rounded personalities, and to show the effect of the apocalypse on human behaviour (the scientist only concerned about his daughter in number 2, and the twisted robbers at the beginning of number 3). Unfortunately, what we get with number 5 is Umbrella, Umbrella Umbrella. Oh, and they've got a few giant zombies as toys.
The writers have tried to freshen things up by throwing in an entertaining reason to bring back some favourite faces. Likewise the new setting can be viewed as either a cynical cheap excuse to have several different environments (or 'levels' like a game)to liven up the movie, or as a fun and inventive environment.
Unfortunately the all-pervading familiarity lessens the tension. The plot is so flimsy that no-one ever actually tries to justify it at all (it amounts to - 'we're in here, let's get out'), the supporting characters make paper look thick and well defined, and the appalling 'Matrix' copy character Wesker is back.
I think we've seen enough characters flipping over each other in slo-mo and enough fights without meaningful consequences in this series to last a lifetime. In the penultimate scenes in fact, even the characters themselves seems to be surprisingly laid back about what should be a tense situation. Tellingly the moments in this film that work the best are the scenes with Jovovitch as a normal suburban mum, and later scenes that essentially steal the emotional-bonding plot from 'Aliens'.

I've always enjoyed the Resident Evil movie series, they're fun, exciting and a good blend of action and horror but this new entry is the first one that really made me think "wow!".

From the highly impressive, reverse-slow motion, opening scene it was literally non-stop action until the closing moments. Lots of the old characters from the previous films return as well as some new appearances of Barry Burton, Ada Wong and Leon S Kennedy (finally!). There's some subtle nods and references to the games as well which fans like myself will appreciate. The visual effects are some of the best in the series and I particularly liked how it revisited old locations from the last few films.

The story can be a little too straight-forward and doesn't involve too much thought (do any of these films, in all honesty?!) so is just a highly enjoyable watch from start to finish. I highly recommend this film (I watched it again the next day after watching it the first time - something I very rarely do) but I would suggest watching the first four beforehand.
