My name is Alice. I worked for the Umbrella Corporation, the largest and most powerful commercial entity in the world. I was head of security at a secret high-tech facility called the Hive, a giant underground laboratory developing experimental, viral weaponry. There was an incident. A virus escaped. A lot of people died. The trouble was, they didn't stay dead. The computer that controlled the Hive was a state-of-the-art artificial intelligence: the Red Queen. The Red Queen ...

WTF Happened? Watch and judge for yourself - But don't waste too much on it
I was doing a small Resident Evil movie marathon in preparation for seeing this movie, and I was really looking forward to see how they could save the ending of the fourth one - But I was quite hopeful that I would at least get a good action story with an acceptable plot. That have been true for all the others in the series so why not this one.
Well was I in for a rude awakening. Honestly if you enjoyed all the former movies and you consider them "part of their own story" meaning that your pretty much ignoring the video games when watching the movies then you'll find yourself even more amazed by how terrible this movie is.
I will not go into details of the plot as others have done that and perfectly expressed the errors in it (I am of course referring to those more negative reviews you'll find as most of the very positive ones doesn't really put a lot of effort into mentioning it.. mayhap because even they would have trouble claiming it to be a good movie then ;)) But I can easily say that the main problems with this movie is: The plot and the acting. Thats not a good thing for a movie and trust me it shows. The plot has some vague references to the former movie, but thats quickly forgotten and all your in for is a mess of action scenes and bad (and I mean bad) CGI effects. Somehow the actors manage to look not in the least interested in the gun fights they are in and at the same time removing any sense that they are in fact what they appear to be (used to handling weapons..), there is odd alien references.. or perhaps stolen ideas which makes no sense in the places they are used and the whole shitstorm will end with you sitting back confused as to what you just watched and with anger due to the disappointment of what this could have been.
I personally will not count this as part of the series, I'll count it as the series failed little-brother rip-off that should never ever have been made.
I cannot in any situation recommend this movie.. by far the most disappointing, meaningless and confounded mess I ever saw.
