This review is from: Resident Evil: Damnation (Blu-ray + UV Copy)  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
I love the world and mythology of Resident Evil, and the game Resident Evil 2 which introduces Leon and Ada is my favourite by far. This film concentrates on Leon as he enters a fictional eastern european country looking for biological weapons from Umbrella Corp that the country is rumoured to have unleashed during a violent civil war.
The action and visuals in this film are top notch, the photo realistic human charactors are a marvellous technical achievement, however i feel that less effort was put in to the story or script. I found it to be either predictable in parts or just nonsense. What were meant to be emotional moments were squandered due to a lack of care about the charactors or there plight and i never really felt any tension throughout. I enjoyed the action scenes, and seeing some of the monsters in this detail was exciting, however overall as a fan of the atmosphere and deep story of Resident Evil at its best i was a little disappointed in this offering.
