A game cut scene movies, but with added extras. Interesting exercise in animating., 16 November 2015
Author: meritcoba from Alkmaar

The fun part about animations is that you can do things which are almost impossible to do in real life or perhaps very expensive to pull off. The charm is, to steal a catchphrase, to be better than life, which is what animations can offer you. Remember Wile Coyote running of a cliff, continuing for a short while over nothing but air, looking down, realizing there is nothing holding him up, gravity asserting itself and then him dropping down to the ground making a landing that would have killed anyone but a cartoon character? Perhaps you do.

Damnation is mostly interesting because it shows that the gap between real and animated is getting smaller. Although by the time of this review the animations of this movie will probably will have aged. This being said the gap is still there and probably will be there for some time to come as the animations are still wooden when it matters, especially when a closeup is made of the face which ought to express a subtle emotion, but which comes over as awkward, stiff and off queue.

The movie is set in east-European state plagued by civil war, where the losing side, the rebels, try to stave off defeat by deploying bio engineered weapons which can be bought a plenty on the black market according to Ada Wong, one of the characters in the movie. Enter our hero Leon who is send there by the US government to investigate, but it doesn't really matter for he goes rogue the moment the movie starts as the US has decided to pull out, and Leon begs to differ because he is right.Rogue heroes ultimately always are in these movies.

The movie then proceeds along a well traveled path where one moves from one overused 'set' to the next one. An underground garage, an abandoned house, underground tunnels and a church. There has got to be a church. No doubt we also will eventually run into an underground lab or whatever, but I can't tell you as I stopped the movie when the lady president started to do karate with Ada Wong, when she discovered that Ada was not who she claimed to be.

All in all it is an interesting exercise in animating which ultimately finds it demise in the under par story telling that is so typical for games and resident evil movies alike. All the characters are just stereotypical to the point of being dead boring. The main character Leon, for instance, has no personality to speak off, which is okay if you played him as a game character, but as a movie character you might want to see more.

Of course, if your characters are dead dull, you can make amends by throwing some action or shocks at the viewer, but in this the movie under delivers as well. Most of the scenes are actually Leon travelling to a place or fleeing from a place or speaking to characters. The action sequences are far and in between and hampered by a bit too much manga style fighting, but just not enough of it to go full manga style.

There are some shocks.. but nothing an average viewer will go hiding under the table about.

All in the all the movie feels very much like these moves people make using game cut scenes glued together. Only now with the action sequences and traveling scenes added. Which thus begs the question: why the heck did they make a movie with a script meant for a game? And even more: why did they think the would get away with it?

For you the question if you want to waste you time watching a movie, when you could be playing it as a game.
