Trivia

Like in the game, the CG movie comes with an entire arsenal of new and old but familiar weapons. Leon uses the same USP .45 with laser and tactical illumination as the one he used in Resident Evil 4 (2005), along with a Glock 26 for backup. The senator's bodyguards used the standard Glock 17 handguns when they shot the first zombie in the airport terminal. The standard weapon used in this CG Movie by SRT units, the soldiers and once by Leon to bring down the bridge on top of Curtis' monster ego, with the exception of Angela who uses a Custom MP5 and a Glock 26 with a compensator. The weapons used by the bad guy, Frederic Downing, is a Walther PPK (seems to be a British favorite). The airport security guy with the MP7A1, depicted in the Trailer being attacked by a zombie was nowhere to be seen in the movie. See more »

Goofs

The Marines in the movie are wearing ACU BDUs, a pattern used by the Army. They should be wearing MARPAT. See more »

Fanboys will agree that this movie sucks in a few months
11 January 2009 | by imrationalSee all my reviews

I hate fanboys who feel that they can't call a turd a turd if it belongs to one of their favorite franchises. I bet most of the people giving this crapfest glowing reviews will later recant and rip on it as well. They'd disavow their reviews here if they weren't saved on the internet for all posterity. I've seen fanboys do it with Romero's Land of the Dead and with Richard Kelly's Southland Tales.

RE Degeneration has decent computer animation. However, I thought it also had worse animation than Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within had... which came out eight years ago! So, when people are saying that they are not quite "Pixar quality"... keep in mind that it's not as good of quality as other computer animated anime from years ago either.

Sound effects were decently handled. Zombie moans sounded like zombie moans. What else can I say? The music score was okay, basically it just blended into the background. Basically, "eh".

The plot. Now the fanboys here will be telling you that this movie is for fans of the videogames. Bullcrap. I'm a big fan of the videogames. This movie was an insult to the fanbase. The plot... if you could call it that, is crap. I know of tons of B-Budget zombie flicks with better plots. The live-action RE movie had a far better plot than this. Hell, ALL the live-action RE movies had better plots than this one!!!!!

The only redeeming feature of this was we got to see some of our beloved RE characters again. However, they feel hollow in this rendition. I really wouldn't have cared if Claire got bitten by the end of the movie.

All in all... as a zombie-flick fan, I'm disappointed. As a Resident Evil fan, I feel betrayed.
