I watched the third Res Evil movie yesterday for the first time. Now I wasn't expecting much, based on the quality of the second movie, but this was absolutely DISMAL. I really don't know how they could so easily lose the concept behind the games and come up with some kind of perverted mad max film. There were far too many super powered fight scenes. The villains were still incredibly cliche'd. Dr Issac at the end? "I am the future!" What the hell? Aside from the numerous plot discrepencies with the games, such as...

- Wesker being a big umbrella hot shot
- Alice being the reason behind the Tyrant
- Claire Redfield no longer having the Chris Redfield story line.
- The absence of any other monsters.
- Carlos not having his accent.
- Horrific characterisation of Claire

I found the film to be horricially boring and just an excuse for lots of fight scenes. Who were those people at the start who trappped Alice? What was their motivation!? How the hell did the T-Virus infect EUROPE and AUSTRALIA but supposedly leave Alaska untouched!? What's with the obsession for Matrix style fight scenes and ridiculous hand to hand combat?

There was far too much empahsis placed on Alice. The army of clones? That's ridiculous. So basically Alice's blood can create a Tyrant, but also cure the T-Virus... hmm...

I also fond the magnificant lack of plot and direction really boring as well.

Anyone agree?

I have yet to see this movie. I'll probably still check it out, since I didn't think the second movie was too bad.

I completely agree with you. Actually I was looking forward to the movie because of the "well produced" trailers but what I was greeted with when I actually watched the whole thing was a bunch of people fighting everything EXCEPT zombies. Oh and don't get me started on Carlos, you can't lose your accent that quick. Basically the movie had no plot at all...there were small pieces of information about how Alice's blood could cure the T-Virus and characters from the game such as Claire and Wesker were introduced but both with different backstories. My post isn't coherant by any definition of the word but it only illustrates how frustrated I actually am with this movie.


RESI 3 = DISMAL.

It wasn't spectacular, but I didn't hate it either. After RE:A, it wouldn't have been possible to do worse. But then, I'm a sucker for any variety of zombie movie. Plot, acting, none of that matters. If it involves zombies I'm there.

I dunno, I think Howard the Duck has RE3 beat in terms of rubbishiness. ;)

Mansquito, Snakehead Terror, Harpies, Ice Spiders, Kaw, Chupacabra... all those godawful movies Skiffy spews out. I'd take RE3 over those any day.

I must admit, not having Skiffy, I wouldn't know... But tbh, I'd take "Santa Defeats the Martians" over this!

I would sure hope so. Most of those movies I couldn't stand for more than a half-hour or so.

I'm sorry but Extinction had me cringing all the way through. Far too mcuh emphasis on silly fight scenes and knife play. Maybe it's a cultural thing, but I like my zombie movies like 28 Days later.

28 Days Later and it's sequel were great zombie flicks, no doubt about that.

28 weeks later was terrible, what it's too hard to place a guard on your super secure quarantine lab? Or how about not giving your janitor access to EVERYTHING!

I can't understand why they couldn't stick with the original storyline in the games. IMO they were better done cinematically and dramatically than any of the movies.

I liked the novels. Never played the games, but the novels are what made me interested in the movies. The first one didn't really live up to my expectations, though, and I knew it'd be downhill from there. Still, they make good junk viewing. Not gonna pay to see 'em in theaters, though. ;)

Good or bad, I'll probably still end up seeing this movie. Probably when it is OnDemand though.

What confused me was that Claire Redfield met Alice in RE2.... and yet, in RE3, Alice has to re-introduce herself to Claire.

When was Claire in RE2, was she one of the people who helped rescue Alice?

I don't recall seeing Claire Redfield in RE: Apocalypse. Was it Jill Valentine you're talking about? She was in Apocalypse but not Extinction.

Hollywood took the RE license and humped it to death. Atleast, thats the way I see it.

Ain't that the truth... R.E. Extinction was by far on of the worst game2film movies I have ever seen... and I still cannot understand how the film could have turn'd out so bad!
