Milla Jovovich, with a little help from her friends (the live and undead ones), once again takes on those rascals at the evil Umbrella Corporation that started this whole planet zombie mess in the first place. Will she win? Probably not, though I suspect she’ll get her knocks in, at least enough to continue on with a sixth installment if “Resident Evil: Retribution” brings in the money like the last film. Who would think the franchise would still have life (ahem) after four installments? We’ll find out if there’s life after the fifth one. Until then, get a good gander at the 3D action spectacular that is the “Resident Evil: Retribution” teaser trailer, which looks more like an actual video game cut scene than a movie. Was that the point?
The Umbrella Corporation’s deadly T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead. The human race’s last and only hope, Alice (Milla Jovovich), awakens in the heart of Umbrella’s most clandestine operations facility and unveils more of her mysterious past as she delves further into the complex. Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true. Aided by newfound allies and familiar friends, Alice must fight to survive long enough to escape a hostile world on the brink of oblivion. The countdown has begun.
