I can't believe they still make the Resident Evil movies, I struggled to get into the first batch, and I just couldn't do it. I had all 3 on DVD and I watched the first one and fell asleep. Then the second one I think might have bee slightly better, but it couldn't hold my attention so I cleaned while it was on. Then I don't think I watched the 3rd one.
Are they worth it? Should I make myself like them?
I remember thinking once "you know the resident evil stories could make for some pretty awesome action/zombie movies" and then remembering "oh wait they tried that and it's the most horrible thing ever".
No, the trick is, they WOULD be good movies, if they weren't utter bastardizations of all that is RE.
If they were JUST Action Zombie flicks, the movies would have been good. Hell, Milla Sue might have been a fun over the top heroine if she wasn't pissing in all the cornflakes of the existing characters.
Chris Redfield and Leon Kennedy will not be alone in this new game. Both Chris and Leon will have unnamed partners of their own, teaming up in similar fashion to the Chris Redfield/Jessica Sherawat and Jill Valentine/Parker Luciani pairings in Resident Evil Revelations. Sources tell us Chris and Leon will have seperate stories in the game that will eventually overlap in some capacity.
giving them both random jackasses as partners rather than picking from established characters from the series people have been dying to see return (did claire just fall off the face of the earth or something??) is a dumb idea imo
For fans of the series, the opening paragraph revealed that some previously killed characters have come back from the dead. This is a result of Umbrella and cloning. As a result of being brought back by Umbrella, Jill Valentine is wearing a red scarab on her chest (seen in previous films) and she’s under their control. Also, “Bad Rain” injects herself with the Las Plagas parasites and this gives her superhuman powers. During our interview with Michelle Rodriguez she made a statement that she can now eat bullets. We were not sure if that was a joke or if she really can now eat bullets.
The big fight scene between Alice and Jill on the ice somewhere in Russia originally had 200 moves. However, the production is running behind and the final number might be cut down.
According to producer Jeremy Bolt, the franchise is “within sight of the end.” He went on to say that the 5th installment is the most “science fiction-y” of the franchise and it has the most action. Bolt went on to say that he could see a Resident Evil spinoff movie based on a character from the franchise. He did not say which character.
When decided which new characters to include in Retribution, Anderson and Milla Jovovich listened to the fanbase. They settled on adding Leon Kennedy, Ada Wong, and Barry Burton, who they felt where the three fan-favorites that the film franchise had yet to touch on.
While the video game features a love story between Ada Wong and Leon, don’t expect to see it in the movie.
