About Resident Evil: Retribution
The first Resident Evil film minimised the haunted house atmosphere and tension of the video game series on which it was based, preferring instead to head full-tilt into the action genre with a gun-toting, round-housing heroine and lots of fight scenes. This fifth film promises more of the same, with hi-tech weapons and destruction on a global scale as armies of the undead ravage the world. Alice (Milla Jovovich) the near-superhuman ass-kicker who has thus far survived the apocalypse, is a little more vulnerable this time round as she doesn't have the T-virus powers that helped her in the previous films. Once again she becomes a target of the Umbrella corporation – really, their interest is starting to become creepy – before taking on her former ally Jill Valentine (Sienna Guillory), who is under Umbrella's control.
