[BD Review] Brad Thinks ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’ Is Mind-Melting Eye Candy

The Paul W.S. Anderson directed Resident Evil: Retribution 3D hits theaters today. The film stars Milla Jovovich, Sienna Guillory, Colin Salmon, Michelle Rodriguez, Shawn Roberts, Boris Kodjoe, Johann Urb, Oded Fehr, Kevin Durand and Li Bingbing. And now Brad (Mr. Disgusting) writes in with his review! He didn’t love the movie, but thinks it will certainly satisfy fans of the series. I tend to agree – I think it’s the best one of the bunch.

Check out our Resident Evil Hub for more Retribution!

Good or bad, it’s time to be honest – the sole reason any of us watch these movies is to see Milla Jovovich kicking ass in a skintight outfit. This time we’re also blessed with Sienna Guillory squeezed into a tight blue Jill Valentine costume (even though her acting was appalling). Still, I couldn’t help but wish that Michelle Rodriguez had a larger role. In fact, it made me wish she had a bigger role in everything. I can only hope that with the inevitable sixth installment she becomes “the” villain.

    i haven’t see this yet (i’m going in about 3 hours!) but it’s getting VERY mixed reviews. on the RE forum i go to some long time RE movie fans i’ve known for years really disliked the movie. apparently (according to the friends in question) it’s non-stop action from start to finish with some promised (from Milla & Paul) characters stuff completely cut out. i am hearing that there will be extended cut DVD/BR’s of AFTERLIFE, RETRIBUTION & the next and last RE6 movie but not until that last movie leaves theaters. i’ll come back and let you guys know if i like it. i’m sure i will!

      You mean the IMDb forums? Yeah I’ve learned to stay away from that place because I kept reading everything on there and accidentally read some (minor) spoilers. And yes the number of mixed reviews is quite confusing, some say it’s the best one yet and others think it’s the worst (???). There’s like no middle ground from what I’ve seen so far. Maybe they were expecting too much lol. But to be honest I think I’ll end up liking Retribution because I’m one of those who actually enjoyed Afterlife, even though I think it’s easily the weakest of them all.

    and Evan (or any BD person) that quote you have from Brad CONTAINS A SPOILER!!! i’ve managed to stay away from big spoilers (who dies, twists, etc) i had no idea if Michelle’s Rain survived in this. i do now. thanx BD.

    @djblack1313 how is that a spoiler? He doesn’t say if she lives or dies….

  • djblack1313

    ” I can only hope that with the inevitable sixth installment she becomes “the” villain.”

    really?

  • EvanDickson

    In the resident evil universe people die and are reborn with insane regularity.

    Trust me he didn’t spoil anything.

    And what I said isn’t a spoiler either! You’ll see!

  • djblack1313

    ok, cool. thanx Evan! [smile]

  • djblack1313

    Evan turns out that WAS a spoiler. lol. yup. but the movie is a mess but it’s a fun mess. it’s all action and a really dumb plot (using that term loosely). and i say this as a HUGE RE movie fan. lol.

      Yea, I agree completely. It was a huge plotless mess, but I was 100% entertained throughout. I went with a friend who has never seen an RE movie or played the games, about an hour in she says “I have clue what the hell is going on, but I like it!”.

  • Taboo

    I loved it! It was really entertaining :)

    RE: Afterlife is by far the best. Retribution was fun movie but I was kind of expecting a little more out of this one. I’m a hardcore fan of the games, wouldn’t mind a reboot that follows the games more closely in the future.

    I thought it was decently entertaining. I felt empty inside though… something was missing.

    • Angel

      I agree…so many unanswered questions happened in the movie. I love the series to death though.
