I was super excited for the fourth installment of Resident Evil especially since Paul was directing again but when i left the movie house i felt like the franchise was dead.
When Retribution came out i was excited but not as i used to be and so when i watched it i didn't have high hopes but jeez i didn't expect it to be this bad.
The movie felt like a crappy game being played on the big screen and after awhile, the story became predictable and repetitive and what especially ruined it for me was the ending.
For me resident evil should just finish but unfortunately i hear there's another one coming which will properly be even more stupid than this one. I'm usually the first to point out the good points in a bad movie, but I was actually angry while sitting in the theater last night - angry that I had wasted my time and hard-earned money. Sequels (SOME remakes & reboots, too) just for the sake of making sequels have to stop. They're (almost) always terrible. And before anyone mentions 'The Godfather II' or 'Aliens', those were released over 25 years ago - let it go, FFS. This movie just seemed like an excuse to reunite cast members from the first film (for the weakest of reasons), and also to have many, many unnecessary fight scenes that never end. The film's first, second & third acts don't really seem to even come from the same storyline and the film's plot is all over the place. Also, I'm not quite sure how much longer the audience will continue to believe that these specially-trained, martial arts & combat experts (as they all seems to be) can barely hit a single target while shooting at another main character. If you're going to waste your money, spend it on the video games instead. Writer-director W.S. Anderson's overseeing of the Resident Evil zombie franchise has proven to be both lunatically haphazard and dementedly enthusiastic. Following the Umbrella attack, led by Jill Valentine (Sienna Guillory), on the survivors on the Arcadia (in Resident Evil: Afterlife), Alice (Milla Jovovich) awakens to find that she has been transported to an underwater Umbrella facility in the Arctic Circle and learns that Umbrella CEO Albert Wesker (Shawn Roberts) and top agent Ada Wong (Bingbing Li) are no longer allied with Umbrella and have sent a team, including Leon S Kennedy (Johann Urb), Barry Burton (Kevin Durand), and Luther West (Boris Kodjoe), to help Alice escape. However, the Red Queen (Megan Charpentier) is now in control of Umbrella and sends Jill and an evil clone of Rain Ocampo (Michelle Rodriguez) after them. Things get even more complicated when a clone of Alice's deaf daughter Becky (Aryana Engineer) is added to the mix. Resident Evil: Retribution marks the fifth installment in the franchise. The four predecessors include Resident Evil (2002) (2002), Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004) (2004), Resident Evil: Extinction (2007) (2007), and Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010) (2010). The sixth movie, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2016), was released in late 2016. The Red Queen was disabled at the end of Resident Evil. She is mentioned again in Extinction; Alice tells the artificially-intelligent White Queen that her sister computer became homicidal. Some viewers believe that the Red Queen was re-enabled after Wesker betrayed the Umbrella corporation aboard the Arcadia and attempted to eat them to gain control over the T-virus at the end of Afterlife. Jill Valentine, who had been captured and placed under mind control by the Red Queen, then led a large detachment Umbrella troops in multiple heavily-armed osprey copters to capture the ship. Furthermore, Valentine is being controlled through the same kind of device as Claire Redfield was at the start of Afterlife. The device is linked to the Red Queen as it turns out. It is never mentioned in the movie. Some fans believed that would be revealed in Resident Evil 6. Along those lines, a clone of Dr. Isaacs could have been and most likely was the one who brought the Red Queen back online. It is also unknown when the Red Queen was re-activated. Some viewers believe the Red Queen was re-enabled at some point in Afterlife, after Wesker betrayed the Umbrella Corporation and tried to eat everyone, but that supposition leaves open the question of who was on the other end of the mind control spider that was attached to Claire Retfield at the beginning of Afterlife, so it is quite possible that the Red Queen was re-enabled between the events of Extinction and Afterlife, while she only really has a presence inside of Umbrella facilities and not the dilapidated outside world in which Afterlife almost entirely takes place. It is never mentioned in the movie, but she is just a computer-generated representation presumably of Angie Ashford. The Red Queen was disabled in the first movie and re-enabled at some point during the events of Afterlife, so it is likely that she was modeled again. Noticeably she is not presented as hologram this time around but as a screen-bound flat image of a 3D avatar. On the technical side of things: it's possible that the movie's maker, Paul W.S. Anderson, consciously decided to alter the Red Queen's portrayal as he would go on to do exactly that, one more time, for The Final Chapter; or perhaps somehow for some reason, the studio did not retain the likeness rights of the original actress who of course had long since physically outgrown the role. Regardless, being that the Red Queen is a piece of software, it's likely that there are various versions of her. In Resident Evil, it is stated that the Artificial Intelligence killed everybody to prevent the T-virus from escaping. Then a team was sent to know what was going on, and the computer activated defense systems to prevent an outbreak. In Extinction, the White Queen said to Alice that the Red Queen was following the most logical path to preserve life
