The ultimate battle begins
The film begins with Alice exactly where we last saw the end of Resident Evil 4: Restart – on the deck of the mysterious ship Arcadia, where she hoped to find more survivors of the epidemic.
But in reality, what awaits is a battle of his life, when his former ally, Jill Valentine (Sienna Guillory), and a squadron of helicopters terrible V-22 of the Umbrella Corporation approaching with orders to shoot to kill .
Alice awakens in the heart of Umbrella’s clandestine operations, and discovers more secrets of his mysterious past as delves into the complex. Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the virus, a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, DC and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything she believed to be true .
With a frantic pace, all scenes are loaded with zombies, explosions, monsters, shootings and fights. It’s difficult to breathe between one sequence and another, since the great 3D takes you into the screen.
This is what most resembles the games: the Red Queen commands the action, announcing where the protagonists will then separating the battles in stages where characters must dodge enemies – like La Plagas and the Axemen. Just one joystick to get you into the action.
Anderson came up with an ingenious way of bringing back characters who had suffered brutal deaths in the previous films, including Rain (Michelle Rodriguez, and always great playing several characters) and Jill Valentine (Sienna Guillory in acting weak and full of catchphrases). Carlos (Oded Fehr, great), Luther West (Boris Kodjoe, good) and Albert Wesker (Shawn Roberts) also return in style.
Who gives a show is China’s Li Bingbing (‘The Forbidden Kingdom’), who lives Ada Wong, Wesker agent that fights alongside Alice. Very comfortable in the role, she will win over fans of the games and movies. Johann Urb also shows great talent as Leon Scott Kennedy.
The sequence in which Alice appears as a simple housewife in the suburbs is the best, showing that what is missing is the action excessive leave aside and return to the horror genre – Anderson seems to know that driving with more wisdom.
‘Resident Evil 5: Retribution’ will appeal to fans of the franchise and action movies, with breathtaking sequences and doses of suspense and laughs volunteers – but starts to show some wear. Is your brain off and watch a dazzling game without being in charge of the Joystick.
