I was really looking forward to this new instalment to the Resident Evil movie series. Unlike the other three films this one was made using CGI and at last starred Leon from Resi 2 and 4. Considering that Leon is my favourite character and imagining the boundaries that could be pushed I was climbing the walls for like three weeks prior to the release date.
I invited a friend round, turned out the lights, opened the disc tray, inserted the disc, pressed play, and then it began. The most disappointing 92 minutes ever. Maybe that is a bit of an exaggeration. I mean it was OK but considering what they could of done with this it was a bit of a let down. The script was very clunky throughout and although the CGI looked good it wasn't spectacular. To be honest I think Final Fantasy the spirits within looked better. Another really annoying thing was that the original film was done with japanesse speech, so the american voice overs are all out of sync with the mouth movement. At one point Leon said something and his mouth never even moved.
One thing i did like however was the way they made it resemble the game. The characters movement was just like they move during the game and some of the camera angles were well thought out.
Overall it was a bit of a let down, but as I am a die hard fan of Resident Evil I was able to get some enjoyment out of it. However for twelve pounds I wish I had waited until the price dropped a bit. Unless you are a big fan of the series I would steer clear of this one for now and maybe grab it later from the bargain bin.
