In Case You Were Wondering, Here’s what Resident Evil 5 is Officially About

Milla Jovovich in Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004) Movie ImageWhat, it’s not about Alice fighting zombies, stupid guys in commando gear who can’t hit the side of a barn, and crazy super-zombies?

The wildly successful film franchise adaptation that has grossed nearly $700 million worldwide to the popular video game series, “Resident Evil,” returns in its highly anticipated fifth installment, “Re5ident Evil: Retribution” in state-of-the art 3D.

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.

And yes, they are going with “Re5ident Evil: Retribution”, but it’ll be a cold day in hell when I start typing “Re5ident Evil” in future posts. A cold day in hell INDEED!

Besides Jovovich, the ballooning cast includes Michelle Rodriguez, Kevin Durand, Sienna Guillory, Meagan Good, Oded Fehr, Johann Urb, Bingbing Li, Shawn Roberts, and Boris Kodjoe. Seriously, though, they need to put a “Final Destination” knife to this thing and cut down the cast some. For a horror franchise, the fact that people never die (or stay dead) is getting a tad ridiculous. Who do these people think they are, the “Fast and Furious” franchise?

    i guess i dont care they keep making these cus Milla still looks good and they keep adding more girls in every episode so whatever. the guys who made “suckerpunch” shoulda kept notes.
    my only complaint is michelle rodriguez. really? shes so 2001 isnt she? anyways the story hardly even matters for the movies anymore. its just people running around shooting at zombies and clones and bats and theyre in the desert then a skyscraper… really ill watch but i doubt that my mind will care to even remember i did such a thing.

    So let me get this straight, if you diedin one of the preivous movies Umrella just snatched your corpse up and cloned you? Cause how else are we explaining Rain and Carlos coming back?

    I do like this franchise for the simple fact that they moved it away from the games by jumping forward and basically saying, we lost and we’re just trying to survive now, where the games have basically gone from survival horror, to action horror/counter terrorism.

    I think Paul’s spin to RE works well and expands the overall mythology. And they know what the viewers want, his wife blasting zombies, explosions and nods to the game here and there. Oh, and Li Bing Bing added to the mix now as Ada Wong, mmmm, nice! But Michelle Rod back? I guess as the main challenge for Alice?

      Probably not, I think that will be Siena Guillroy’s Jill.

    That whole series got so retarted. What´s that evil company all about anyway now that nearly the whole population is dead or undead?

      From what I can tell, Umbrella is trying to restart civilization (a good thing) but on THEIR terms (a bad thing). Also, even though the world is shit, those Umbrella suits who survived still haven’t fully answered for what they’ve done. And let’s not forget they’re still running around kidnapping and experimenting on people……

        YEah pretty much what I was thinking.

    see no one knows what this thing is about haha its chicks with guns and explosions done right. in a fast forgettable disposable way. awesome! what part is this? 7 maybe michelle being back is a their way to link up and bring zombies to fast n furious? i hope so cus other than that shes not even pleasant to look at.
