Maybe it’s because I’m watching it on a computer, but the action-packed first clip from Sony Screen Gems’ Resident Evil: Retribution 3D feels a bit flat. Maybe the addition of heavy sound design in a theater will give it some weight, but right now watching Alice battle it out feels a bit like watching a Resident Evil stage show at Universal Studios. It’s still pretty cool, and is obviously missing some sound cues.

Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true. Aided by newfound allies and familiar friends, Alice must fight to survive long enough to escape a hostile world on the brink of oblivion. The countdown has begun.“
