When in the laboratory attack scene, Rebecca hides under a desk, she grabs a water bottle from it, to drink from (whilst a zombie attack is underway!): scriptwriter Fakami was insistent it not be cut, as in the whole film "there's a lot of different fetishes involved .. [and] she looked so sexy drinking it; she pops her head out after drinking; she looks so cute, like a hamster." [English translation to Japanese language DVD commentary.] See more »

Resident Evil Vendetta: Weakest of the animated movies
I'm a huge Resident Evil fan, from the games to the movies and including the previous animated attempts. They didn't exactly set the world on fire but they were perfectly watchable efforts.
I was very excited to hear about this being released so perhaps my expectations were a tad high, and I can confirm they were not met.
The story very generic, the animation sub-par and the fight scenes were let's just say interesting. For some reason the creators thought they'd blend Resident Evil with The Matrix as the characters seem to be able to move neo-style to such extents I found myself cringing. These are average joes not ninja *Slaps creators wrists" bad creators, bad! Seriously why is Leon Kennedy doing bullet time triple back-flips with a dragon screw rotation while shooting zombies in the head and throwing knives and writing an essay and having a length conversation with his girlfriend before even landing? I mean okay that's a tad exaggerated but not as much as you'd imagine.
Vendetta isn't bad, it's just silly and anti-climatic compared to the previous films.
