The best of the series

with the soft installment of the resident evil live action series, this one seems to take the cake, besides the last film being a little bit of a mess, this sixth instalment definitely compensates for its mistakes. Even though action sequences may have seemed a little obscure due to camera angles, it was still pretty impressive, seeing millia return after 5 years of delay is very pleasing to those internationally and some bit in the u.s the protagonists story was straight to the point and presented a compelling story to Alice's final battle with the cgi involved, it was great the new type of zombies being bought in the film definitely helps this film. It's exciting to see Paul w. Anderson pitch in on these monsters. I would be very glad to see a next inside of this film. I would never want to see a remake, maybe some side story movies can be made like the animated movies such as resident evil degeneration,damnation, and 2017's vendetta coming out.

An unrelenting thrilling action ride

Another Resident Evil film. After the 4-5 year delay I was expecting a lot from the last film in the franchise. Fortunately, this film was exactly what most action film goers are looking for. The action is this film was somewhat on point. The cinematography was a bit frustrating to deal with especially with so much of the panning but overall it was decent. The CGi however had a few strong and weak points. Some parts of the film (no gonna spoil anything) were quite realistic while some were just plain fake. However, if the budget was similar to the rest of the films in the franchise I'd say it's good enough. Mila, again has a stiff but improved performance. I guess all the stunts are hard to deal with but apart from that she is meant to have this emotionless and careless feel to her persona which is what she is actually represented as in the film. Nevertheless the stunts by all the actors were pleasing and a nice watch. The story as usual with the other films in the franchise are very broad and basic. This means that the majority of the population should be able to understand it but it also means that the plot was not a main focus. Of course, the plot is what drives the whole film to life but it wasn't vast and unique enough. Sure it did have some twists but they were somewhat expected. I wouldn't call them twists anymore would you? Overall, the film was an enjoyable action flick with lots and lots of violence. A recommended watch with your friends to enjoy to crazy joyride full of blood, revenge, heroin ism and zombies. x

Can it be? The Final Chapter might just be the most entertaining Resident Evil film of all!

After two underwhelming and frankly dull instalments in Afterlife and Retribution, I'm glad to say that the Resident Evil series goes out on a high with The Final Chapter. It's still not a cinematic masterpiece, but it does exactly what a Resident Evil movie is meant to do: entertain you with fun and ridiculous action, and a few twists and turns along the way. If there's one thing that makes this movie as entertaining (and at times even more so) than the first two movies, then it's the action. Pretty relentless from start to finish, The Final Chapter is such an entertaining watch, hopping from action scene to action scene at a rapid pace, and very rarely letting up with too much planning, dialogue and character development that the series' weakest entries tried to pull off. Of course, the heavy emphasis on mad, and at times utterly preposterous action (Alice's ability to survive everything is way beyond Die Hard levels), means that it's not a particularly intriguing or memorable watch, and director Paul W.S. Anderson's insistence on dizzying quick cuts and shaky cam is frustrating to see. However, this movie knows you want Milla Jovovich doing backflips and killing zombies, and it thankfully provides that in bucketloads, making for a properly entertaining and fast-paced action movie. One of the more surprising elements of The Final Chapter, however, is the last-ditch twists within the series' overall story arc. Sometimes, this film does a great job at tying up some loose ends from previous movies, and at others, it's a little contradictory of the past events. Still, as the film goes on, we begin to learn more and more about the true reason that the world was plunged into chaos, as well as a whole host of other hugely entertaining, albeit ridiculous, twists that actually give this film some genuine stakes. I'm not going to say I was engrossed by the story, because it's incredibly thin, and wouldn't stand up at all if it weren't for all the action going on around it, but I will say that this does have some of the best ideas and plot twists since the first two movies, yet another reason why this might just be my favourite of the whole franchise. And at the end of a six movie streak, you'd expect lead actress Milla Jovovich to be phoning it in with a bored and generic performance, but that's not the case. Her character has never been the most fascinating, but you can't deny that Jovovich really goes for it in this final outing, reaffirming how good an action hero she can be. Whilst the same isn't necessarily true of many of her co-stars, most of whom are just another set of expendable extras, the rivalry that we see reignite between Jovovich's Alice and Iain Glen's Dr. Isaacs for one last time is pretty entertaining, all building towards a hugely fun finale that marks itself as some of the best action of the series. Overall, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is all you want from this series. Harking back to the strongest instalments with its no-holds- barred action and ridiculous twists, it's a properly entertaining and action-packed blockbuster that's a lot of fun to watch, even if it's not a film of the highest quality.

Not so good.

The worst thing was the frame rate during action scenes (which was most of the movie) when the film becomes jerky as though the camera-work had been done by a few drunks with hand held cameras and then spliced together by software - it was impossible to make out what was happening - yes it's that bad. None of the characters were developed, except for the computer simulated girl, who gets best actor award. The story could have been written on the back of a stamp; she has forty hours to get the anti-virus and save the world, and the script is instantly forgettable. That's about it. I like the other Biohazard movies so was looking forward to this one and was surprised at how bad it is.
