There’s an important political and military subplot, at the center of this story, which is cold, impersonal, and certainly not scary. It is nothing like the reclusive video game by the same title. Patience. We get there eventually. We do get up close and personal with Leon, right out of Resident Evil 2, and things are eerier when he’s alone with monsters in the dark.
The games this is based on were much more horror-oriented than action-filled, and some might feel betrayed. That said, the third act is breath-taking. I wouldn’t call it frightening, but it’s stressful. It gets your heart pumping. The cool thing about this franchise is that it’s never been just about zombies. The mini-bosses are much faster, stronger, and atrocious than their brain-eating cousins.
The movie is filled with level 20 abominations nightmares are made of. You get two Tyrants and a bunch of Lickers, to get technical. In the midst of battle, at some point, you forget you’re watching 3D animation. We get cool martial art scenes, but in the wrong movie. This is a sequel to Resident Evil: Degeneration and prequel to the video game Resident Evil 6. Confused? I am!
