At this point we should just take these movies for the mindless action movies that they are and nothing else. By doing that the movie is pretty enjoyable.
As we all know by this point the story for this movie is just so far fetched and out of it that I really think they just stopped trying. Then again no one is watching this for the story anyway.
The action is where its at and this movie is a lot of fun with it. Although I wish they would have had more hand to hand combat scenes instead of the standard gunfight. They did a good job of mixing the enemy’s up and bringing in some much loved Resident Evil enemies even if just for a brief sequence. Special effects look good (though a bit cheesy at times) and the zombies look great.
What I love is how they bring back characters that have died multiple times in the previous movies. It just adds to the confusion. Also how they add big name characters from the game into the movie but don’t really tell you who they are at all.
I won’t look too far into this movie though or else it might sound like I hate it. Take it for the mindless action and it is a enjoyable movie and a fun watch. Isn’t watching a movie suppose to be fun anyway.
