Resident Evil: Retribution

The fifth, and probably not the last, Resident Evil movie has now hit cinemas nationwide. As with every instalment of the RE series, I find myself asking, ‘How on earth can they still be making these god-awful movies?’

Most films based on video games, I’m sorry to say, just aren’t very good. Much is either lost in translation, or wasn’t there to begin with. The end result is usually something that leaves nobody satisfied, be they gamers or movie buffs.

Alice (Mila Jovovich) is knocked unconscious during an Umbrella Corp onslaught. Upon waking, she finds herself in the heart of suburbia – a homely housewife taking care of her husband and young daughter. Before long, however, some trademark RE zombies appear out of nowhere to chomp on some upper middle class meat. Just as it seems as if her number is up, Alice wakes with a start in an Umbrella-designed holding chamber, semi-nude of course.

Before long, Alice manages to escape with a new leather outfit but, surprise, surprise… (more)

    Kelly here! Thanks for visiting my little blog. This is the section where I waffle on about myself for a bit, on the off chance that you're interested... Education: I have a BA in New Media and English and will soon have an MA in Journalism, both from the University of Limerick. Writing History: I've been involved with organisations such as the Limerick Leader local newspaper, Live95fm,,, and Review magazine. I was Editor of An Focal newspaper and I set up UL FM, Cellar Door Literary Magazine and Current Projects: At the moment, I work as a Digital Intern with the Irish Examiner, and I also write for State Magazine and FilmJam. Extra-curricular: I love travelling and going to gigs and being involved in a million different things at once. I've lived in Glasgow, Ireland and New York and I've been to three continents so far... hopefully a few more by the time life runs out. That's me, in a nutshell really. If you wanna ask me anything, you can leave a comment on the site, on the Twitter, or on the Facebook page. Kel xxx
