These movies are horrible to say the least. I really hope this is the last one. They just keep popping out a new one ever 2-3 years. They’re just awful in every way. It’s amazing that the funding and fan base is still there. The only thing Resident Evil about these movies; is the name, fact that zombies are around and a few characters.
The main character Alice wasn’t ever in the games. The movies are about her and in every movie her character gets more ridiculous. To sum it up quickly, she was infected with a virus that instead of killing her and making her a zombie, it made her super. So the bad guys want her DNA to replicate it to make a super army.
The first movie she was a normal woman. In the second movie, she was infected and was more enhanced, not a super hero, just stronger than everyone else. The third she had super powered. She was moving stuff with her mind and annihilating everyone at will. The fourth one she was cloned, so there many of her killing everyone, but at the end I’m pretty sure she was injected with something that made her normal.
So it might be interesting to see where they go with this movie. They brought back characters from the previous movies. Characters that were clearly killed in ways that they shouldn’t bring them back. A character I am happy they brought back was Wesker; the most badass character in the franchise. He is the cause of everything, the reason the virus is out there, the start of the franchise is because of him. Without Wesker, there is no Resident Evil. The last movie he had an appearance. He was so badass in it that the movie was tolerable.
I don’t have high expectations about this movie, but I will watch it with an open mind. But even as I write this I end up questioning it. The company involved is obviously doing a good job, even though a lot of people don’t like the movies, they make money still. Somehow they keep popping these movies out. I hope this is the last one because not only are the not getting any better, they are just repetitive and annoying to watch.
