A new “Resident Evil” movie has been released, you say?
The fourth installment of the now-inaccurately named “Alice Trilogy” starring Milla Jovovich, you say?
Shot in amazingly-amazing 3D, you say?
Stop writing this review using inane semi-rhetorical questions, you say?
If you’re reading this review, the odds are good that you are familiar with “Resident Evil” on some level, whether it be the big-budget Hollywood flicks that have been coming to your local cineplexes for the last eight years or the enthralling video games that have been produced on a variety of platforms dating all the way back to the first “RE” game for the PlayStation in 1996. No matter what your opinions are about the believability of the stories, the depth (or lack thereof) of the characters, or the level of visual effects and editing, one thing you have to concede to this franchise: damn, they know how to entertain, and “RE:A” is no exception to this rule.
