Action: Resident Evil are always good for action and this one doesn’t disappoint one bit, numerous fight scenes, gun fights and even a few car chases.  (10/10)


Horror: takes some of the horror out and replaces it with the action not as scary as it could be (6/10)

Sci-Fi: in a world of the future with technology and monsters that could only come from the future, who needs space for sci-fi? (8/10)

Special Effects: Another film to take on the 3D ideas show lots of stuff being thrown into your face along with some very impressive creature creations. (9/10)

Settings: Without giving too much away there are some very good setting most of which we have seen before but add up well to the overall story the franchise has created, (9/10)

Suggestion: Still back relax and enjoy the ride much like the other in the franchise this is good fun, it won’t win awards but it will keep you entertained all the way through. (9/10)

Best Part: Car chase through Moscow

Worst Part: Just to be picky would be nice to keep some of the support characters from film to film.

Star Performance Milla Jovovich

Favourite Character Leon S. Kennedy


Trivia: one for the gamers this is the first time Leon and Jill have ever met in the series video game or film.

Overall: An all out action film that never slows down, simply put this is the best in the franchise so far and after the last two films that haven’t lived up to the first two this is a welcome return to the top. Just sit back and enjoy this one is just fun.
