I like the idea of the last one being named "Requiem."

I do have a question/thought for all those that did see the movie:

The way it was edited though, it seemed like we were meant to believe they were the same person. Just a little jarring, that's all.

I'd watch any kind of movie with Milla Jovovitch in it, and have, good and bad. (Right now, some wise-ass out there is asking "What GOOD movie has she ever been in?" It's a matter of perspective...)
The Messenger (Joan of Arc movie) and Fifth Element. Sorry, couldn't resist, even though I know the quesiton was rhetorical.
That's okay. I just said that cause I'm used to being in the minority opinion when it comes to liking her films.

The Messenger was good, but there was a TV miniseries version that starred Leelee Sobieski that was just a little bit better. And while I liked Leeloo I couldn't fully enjoy Fifth Element because I spent half the film wanting to shoot Chris Tucker in the head. Meanwhile, I thought Ultraviolet and The Fourth Kind were great films.

Not exactly a Milla film, but she was pretty good in Dazed and Confused. Though I hear her role got cut down.

And count me as among those who liked Ultraviolet.

Okay, (makes tally mark), that's two...

As for the scene in Suburbia, I assume the point was to fake us out by making when and where it happened an open question until Project Alice reached the right area of the base.

Re: Resident Evil: Retribution. Bit shallow, even by this series stand

I'm not complaining, I did enjoy the scene. It's nice to see a good old fashioned zombie outbreak scene.

Did anyone else catch the fact that when Alice entered the Tokyo sector it was the same outbreak that was shown in the beginning of the previous movie? I think the music at that point was even the same.

Milla just retweeted some guy who posted he'd just seen it again for the 7th time!

Some films I might understand multiple viewings, I've done it before. Maybe you want to see this a second time and see if it's better, did I miss something. But 7 times for this film!!!

Have to say, the scene where Wesker info dumps on Ava and Alice did feel like a video game.

I could see that. Just like some people went and saw Avengers multiple times in theaters, I could see someone seeing this film that many times.

I'm sure if I didn't have any bills to pay and what not, I might have seen it in theaters a few more times, seven though? Not likely. The most I've ever seen any movie in theaters was three.

Having never seen any of the RE films until last week (and watching them all) I really enjoyed Retribution as I did with the others.

Four for me. I saw The Avengers four times in theaters.

I've seen Retribution twice thus far, but since my movie-going is limited to weekends and holidays I'd be hard pressed to see it seven times before it leaves theaters -- and anyway, I can watch it as many times as I want when I buy the DVD.

Re: Resident Evil: Retribution. Bit shallow, even by this series stand

I always find the RE movies to be entertaining but somewhat disappointing. The only one I really liked was #2, loved the premise, loved the video game feel of it complete with boss monster at the end... plus that was back before it was post-apocalyptic.

Re: Resident Evil: Retribution. Bit shallow, even by this series stand

My main problem with this series is that I feel like it's never-ending. None of the movies stand alone well enough for me to ever want to go back and re-watch them. Every new installment just provides enough of a plot to set up the next installment without really accomplishing anything. They're entertaining, but I am ready for the story to be OVER.

Re: Resident Evil: Retribution. Bit shallow, even by this series stand

What i don't get about these movies is Umbrella's motivation.

Pretty much everyone is dead already. There's no one to sell their stuff to, there's no one to finance them and there's no one left that they could kill with their bio weapons.
So why are they still in business doing their unethical research thing?

Bureaucratic inertia with a hint of denial.

If the President of the United States survives the complete destruction of life on Earth, he's still going to act like he's the President of The United States, while anyone who manages to survive while working for him or with him will act the same way, even though all of their jobs became meaningless when the last private US citizen got immolated in the holocaust.

Umbrella is still operating and running their experiments just because that's what they were doing when the world went zombie, and even if they have nobody to sell their breakthroughs to, that doesn't mean they can't find a way for themselves to outlast the plague, so they'll keep trying to do that until either the zombies or Alice kills them all.

Umbrella is trying to find a way to control the zombies so they can make the Earth habitable again... or at least they were in the third one, haha.
