I was lucky enough to see this for free with my best friend. I rewatched the whole series on TV, and while this was certainly a more high definition movie, it just didn’t quite hit the mark for me. The gore was fairly good, but this is not supposed to be a horror movie, so it felt a bit out of place. Resident Evil has always been pretty brutal when it comes to death, but I felt like they went over the top and not in a good way. There was no need for the jump-scares like I said this is not a horror movie. It was jam packed with action from beginning to end, and for me, that’s not necessarily a good thing.
If anything the story and the entire franchise was wrapped up quite nicely, and I was satisfied in that aspect. There were quite a few inconsistencies, but nothing regular people would notice. Overall it was decent, but it wasn’t quite amazing.
I didn’t exactly have high hopes for this film, but I left feeling dissatisfied. I’m almost glad I didn’t have to pay for this movie after all. I will say that I did enjoy the fight scenes. They were well put together, and the actors did a great job of making it entertaining.
I think you if enjoyed the entire series, then you might like how they ended the series. It’s not bad; I think I had higher expectations for this film. After watching all of the movies in succession, I figure it would be a little different than what I saw. This movie is maybe one of the select few movie/franchise that I would want to see in the theatre.
My score: 6/10
