The original plan of Paul W.S. Anderson was to film this movie simultaneously with the upcoming sixth installment in the series, making essentially a two part finale. In the early stages of development Ali Larter and Wentworth Miller were slated to be included in the cast list. When the studio backed out of the concerted filming for two movies, Claire and Chris Redfield were scrapped from the production plans and the filmmakers made it clear that _Resident Evil Retribution_ would be a standalone film. The only carryover from the initial conception is the tagline which bills the 5th film as the beginning of the end. See more »
The Umbrella facility is located in northern Russia where the climate is shown to be arctic with snow, ice and heavy wind. However the characters have no problem with low temperature since they only wear evening dresses, no hats etc. Funnily the strike team wears bare t-shirts right after entering the elevator.

In the opening credits sequence, those who are portraying characters from the video-game series, have their roles listed alongside their names. Everyone else (i.e. Milla Jovovich and co.) simply have their names listed. See more »
I have enjoyed previous installments of this franchise and went to see this most recent entry in 3D. Not having seen anything in the new 3D format I felt this action movie would be the one to showcase this technology. I was wrong. I found the 3D effects were most prominent on the periphery of the screen and distracted from the foreground action.
As far as the film itself, little plot development to the franchise theme, pretty vapid dialog (when there is any dialog)and no character development.
I enjoy action movies but can do without 90 minutes of frenetic action that does not really forward a story.
Hollywood - Please return to story telling without all the unnecessary gimmicks.
