I like the first two Resident Evil movies quite a bit. I really like Milla Jovovich as an actress. I really wish I hadn’t bothered watching this movie. Such a disappointment. Anyhow, I took some notes as I was watching, and I’ll share them with you now.
I was confused by the beginning of the movie. I couldn’t figure out why they were replaying the first movie. Then I thought that it was probably a dream sequence. And there there was a pit of dead Milla Jovovich’s and a bunch of zombies. Nice.
Hicks and zombie dogs. Nice.
The zombies eating people is just a little gratuitous in this movie. Bleh.
And now Alice has telekinesis. And little Red Queen doesn’t look nearly as cool anymore. She’s way too sweet looking. The red holograph was a lot better.
And now it’s the birds. If you can’t tell I’m not overly impressed so far.
Is there an actual plot in here somewhere?
Milla is a superwoman. Wheee! She has awesome mind power abilities. Un-huh. Yeah. Right.
Of course there were zombies in Vegas…..and they’re still fighting them….and still fighting them.
*sigh* I didn’t think this movie would be this bad.
He has tentacles. Why the hell does he have tentacles?
And now Milla/Alice is on the hunt for the big bad.
Great – Mutant Zombie is all mind-powerful too.
I’m still wondering, where’s the plot?
And Alice #2 saves the day! Or at least saves Alice #1. Although #2 is probably really like #50 or something since there’s a bunch of them in a ditch.
Wheee! A whole army of Milla-Alice’s! That makes perfect sense for the end of this movie.
I’m glad I netflixed this and didn’t buy it based on my liking the first two movies.
So those were my thoughts as I watched the movie. I didn’t pay a whole lot of attention to it, as I was also playing Eggbreaker on Facebook. I think Eggbreaker was more interesting. I think I’ll just pretend this one doesn’t exist.
None of the new characters were very well done. Actually none of the characters were very well done. None of them had a purpose, there was no real story in there except that they had to avoid zombies. That was it. And they didn’t do it very well.
They could have taken the new abilities that Alice had and explained them better, then used them to better advantage. Some of the stuff there was kind of cool, like her shorting out the circuit in the satellite. Very far fetched, but kind of neat. Only they just threw these abilities out there and didn’t really do anything with them. They just wanted to make her look cool I guess. It didn’t add to the story, there was no reason why she suddenly had mind powers. The only time they actually worked was when she shielded Carlos from the fire. Otherwise they were pointless. And after she woke up and dropped her bike and all the rocks she had this look on her face like it had happened before. The audience should have been in on that. If it wasn’t a surprise to her then it should have been introduced to us that way.
I think there might have been some potential to this movie if they had explored Alice’s character better, maybe showed us some of what she did out there on her own, and if they had developed a better villain. This movie was a mashup of zombies, gore, death, and superpowers that just didn’t work.
*sigh* I am disappointed. Don’t bother with this one, especially if you like the first two. And to leave you with a really bad pun – this movie needs to be extinct.
Go ahead and groan. *laugh*
