    Did they really need to use the score from TRON: Legacy?

    Although I have missed the Zombies in the last two (they are not really any focus in those films) I still have enjoyed them, and this one looks good so I am looking forward to it.:thumbsup

    Still haven't seen Part 4. They kinda went downhill fast as the series progressed. Soon they're going to have more movies than there are games.

    I guess I should be listed as part of the problem with these movies. None of them really have been all that good, some of them have been down right poor and yet, I pay to see them in the theater every time. There's something about Mila and Zombies i can't pass up. This one looks odd with the flying monsters and having Michelle Rodriguez back somehow but I'm willing to bet when it comes out me and my GF go see it. Never fails.

    Comes out this month. I think it looks better than the last few as if they saved the best for the last film. I like watching them even if they're not the best, to me they're the modern B zombie movies. Plus can't say to Milla lol. I wish they'd make a model kit out of the Osprey type planes Umbrella has. The dude playing Barry looks dead on for the game.

    I saw this on IMAX 3D tonight. Straight mindless action for 90 minutes. Void of any plot or character development. Brain cells will die. It basically takes some elements from the RE4 and RE5 games and then gets all crazy from there. With that said, Resident Evil is one of my guilty pleasures and I had to watch this. I have all the games (will be getting RE6 at release) and seen and own all the movies including the animated ones (I can't wait for RE: Damnation to be released).
    As for those dead brain cells, Ada Wong will stimulate some of those back to life.

    I saw it yesterday... nothing too grand to say about it. It's not the best of the series, but not the worst. Just a kind of mindless film, but entertaining if you are into that sort of thing. It is the most video-game like of the series.

    I LOVED it as a brainless action flick. Plus. It had Milla in black leather bondage gear, Ada Wong in the slinky red dress, and Jill Valentine in that blue catsuit. I will sleep well .. in a few minutes.

    :lol

    I never go into the RE movies expecting anything but mindless action, the director even pretty much says these are throwbacks to the old zombie movies that had little plot. Plus they figure you'll have known who the characters are by now.

    I enjoyed it. I would have enjoyed the less expensive 2D version more I think. Just don't expect a deep story. I really really liked the opening scene.

    Sent from my Etch-A-Sketch

    The opening scene was well done. The rest of the movie was so-so. At times some of the stuff was confusing. The bit with the elevator and them waiting for the explosion still has me lost as to what the point of that was.

    Loads of zombies being killed. Lots of nods to the video games. Actually there were a couple of things thaat weren't explained that if you hadn't played RE4 you wouldn't of known why it was important.

    Mila was awesome as always and given what she has to work with Michelle Rodriguez was pretty good as well. Honestly i think the little kid did some of the best acting in the film.

    Pretty much the trailer for this movie i saw months ago summed up the movie. Showed a bunch of random zombie violence and then flashed "Milla Jovovich in 3-D" up on the screen. I looked to my wife and said "That's really all we need to know to make me want to see that movie."

    Two things that bothered me about the movie. No Chris or Claire Redfield. And when Alice rips off the control device from Jill like it was nothing. Took me and my friend doing online co-op in Veteran mode for RE5 at least an hour to do the same thing. You're just not fighting Jill but you also have to deal with Wesker at the same time.

    The best part of the night was the Silent Hill: Revelation trailer. I'm so looking forward to that.

    Hated first one ,especially for loving the games. I really wish they actually based movies on games.second movie was okay with nemesis , but since then they have sucked and made no sense and have nothing at all to do with game. the story line of game was great and could of transferred great to screen, big mistake by company. Only reason i do watch because milla is so kick * chick, but if anyone from the movie company reads this, GO BACK TO ORIGINAL STORY LINE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    These movies are huge in Japan and Capcom loves them so they must be doing something right.

    I'm more excited for the sequel to the animated movie to watch this personally. Its a shame as the RE series was such a new and clever and interesting and scary idea that it could have made a wonderful film series, with a bit more thought

    im gonna give this one a meh on my film-o-meter

    reasons for this are (and now im gonna start the spoiler tags due to MAJOR spoilers, its your own fault now)
    first of all: so they bring her to russia. is there a point in this? or is it just so they can escape from russia?
    second: there were 2 zombies with zombie makeup. the rest was either experiments like in the tokyo scenario where they looked just like people, or weird crazy brain wolf thingies
    third: "zombies" on motorcycles
    fourth: at the end, they are in the white house which has apparently magicly been fortified, because that seems to have worked in a major city, but suddenly the zombies are attacking
    fifth: they couldve just ended the series there. there were about 500 people in that fortress, and about 10 million zombies on the other side of the wall. no way in hell can they win that battle, especially because everyone who dies, goes zombie.
    sixth: the whole clone thing was weird. can we even know that this is still the same alice as in the first part?
    seventh: alice get wounded just for the sake of being hurt. all she does afterwards was grab the wound twice and look at the blood. didnt restrict her at all
    eigth: the bad guy (forgot his name) took away her powers at the end of the last movie. but apparently that doesnt even face her in the new one

    over all it was good for what it was, alltho some of the CGI was sub par. if you just want to shut your brains off for 90 minutes, go for it.
    dont see it in 3d, as all the 3d effects are so forced, that you get stupider by just looking at them. there has to be at least 5 scenes where they shoot at the screen and you just see the bullet flying towards you in slowmo. and 10 more of the same, but with throwing instead of shooting.

    I haven't played the games that reference the Las Plagas virus, but that did have me a little confused. Zombies driving trucks and shooting guns? What the hell was that about? And the zombies shooting guns were worse than Stormtroopers. The STARS members stood in the center of big windows wth the only cover available being on their shins, and the only zombie able to hit one of them held a chainsaw.

    Las Plagas was a virus created in part 4. When Leon was in Europe. It didn't really make people into "zombies", because they were still living and doing day to day stuff. It really didn't make much sense to me either, but I still enjoyed the games. RE5(game) was essencially the same virus, only in Africa.

    Now, the Plagas in the movie was rather different. They almost still encorporate the whole zombie aspect, but give them a little bit of smarts and ability to perform tasks like...driving. It is best not to think too much into it, but if you are someone who didn't really play RE4 or 5, it probably doesn't make as much sense.

    I think the parasites would systematically influence it's host to do things it normally wouldn't even though the host will still do things on it's own. The more the parasite takes control, the more the host is willing to follow the ideals and leadership of the lead parasite.

    Sometimes those blasted parasites get a little too crowded in the brain area and will just spontaneously burst out of the host's head and start unleashing it's razor sharp tentacles at you. Or unleash itself in spider form..... or into a big legged mouth thing that swallows your head whole....

    I was tempted to see this film because it finally includes my favorite RE character Ada Wong, but when Phelous said that all she does is get captured, I lost interest.

    Easily one of the best in the series. Lee Bing Bing is hot as Ada Wong. Milla rocks as usual and Jill is totally smoking in the suit!

    Surprised no one has mentioned the ahem, homages, to Snyder's Dawn of the Dead and Aliens.

    Very stupid movie, but much more fun than the last one, which didn't even rate as guilty pleasure.
