Resident Evil: Retribution (Blu-ray)

DVD Verdict
2 January 2013
  • Excerpt: The Resident Evil franchise, like a Timex watch, takes a licking and just keeps ticking. Now five movies in (with a sixth film in the works), this zombie-action hybrid series, based on the bestselling video game series of the same name, may never die. Resident Evil: Retribution (Blu-ray) is ready to take a bite out of your home theater.

BluRay Authority

  • Excerpt: A decade ago, the first Resident Evil movie hit theaters and, wouldn’t you know it – it’s now 2012 and they’re still making them.  To its credit, the Resident Evil movies don’t take themselves too seriously, yet they continue to make them and they continue to make money.  Case in point, this latest installment had a budget of $65 million dollars and it raked in over $220 million worldwide.

High-Def Digest

  • Conclusion: The 'Resident Evil' series used to be fun. 'Retribution', the franchise's fifth installment, is running on fumes. Recycling ideas from the first film and mixing it with plot and character elements from 'Aliens' isn't the way to keep things interesting. Paul W.S. Anderson seems to have lost all handle on character and plot, but his action is immaculately choreographed. Unfortunately, this Blu-ray presents it in 2D, robbing much of the best sequences of their bite.

Resident Evil: Retribution (Blu-ray Review)

  • Conclusion: I guess my main question is how does a film like this get made?  I know the answers, the unfortunate box office numbers, but how much dumber can Hollywood treat us?  Please…that was rhetorical.  It’s just a shame that many artists never get recognized in the industry and dog piles of crap like this get green lit for over 65 million dollars.  It’s a very sad state of being when you really think about it and reflect on it.

Resident Evil: Retribution Blu-ray Review

blu-ray.com
18 December 2012
  • Summary: Once again we found ourselves fighting for our lives. What's the movie with multi-million dollar production values, a ten-cent script, and no brains? That would be Resident Evil: Retribution , the worst Action movie of the year and probably the least appealing of the entire Resident Evil franchise, a franchise that's had some good and entertaining pictures, one midlevel effort, and a single clunker .

Resident Evil: Retribution 3D movie review

GameZone
14 September 2012
  • Excerpt: At 95 minutes long, Resident Evil: Retribution should be a brisk, cheesy action movie romp full of silly references to Capcom's popular survival horror franchise. Slow motion action scenes can do wonders to make every second seem like an arduous bore, though, and this film opens with a slow motion action scene that runs in reverse. Slow motion is also a great way to get every ounce of awkwardness out of your actors' stunt work.

Cinema Blend
14 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Paul W.S. Anderson’s Resident Evil: Retribution may be one of the most incoherent, stupid movies that I have ever seen. While I admittedly walked into the film as a neophyte, having never seen any of the other titles in the franchise or played any of the video games, the whole thing is so cacophonous, poorly structured, and badly put together that it’s hard to see how even die-hard fans would be able to make any sense of it.

AV Club
14 September 2012
  • Excerpt: At this point, the Resident Evil movie franchise has become a personal playground for husband-and-wife team Paul W.S. Anderson and Milla Jovovich ; every few years, they find another excuse to pit Jovovich’s videogame-inspired dark superhero, Alice, against zombies and other gruesome monsters.

  • Summary: Having never seen a Resident Evil film all the way through, I was curious to how I’d react to the fifth instalment. Critics hate the films but the people love 'em, so my optimism had me convinced that I’d be in for deliciously brain-dead entertainment in the same vein as Fast Five or Underworld Awakening . Two things are certain: my optimistic self is an idiot and Retribution is terrible.
