Damnation was ok as a dumb action flick with hints of sociopolitical intrigue. Vendetta stops giving a damn about trying to have a message and goes purely for spectacle, with the plot being an afterthought. PRODUCTION VALUES -The CGI quality has improved even more than the second movie, making it pretty close to photorealistic. -The setting is a collection of different areas from the games, almost like fan service. Nothing sticks out or has much variety, making it hollow in comparison to the theme-centric war zone of Damnation. - Voice acting was professional and fairly close to natural. The context of the dialogues is still corny but at least it’s not made up of silly one-liners. SCRIPT -The story is, just like the sceneries, fan service. It takes ideas from all the games and throws them without much thought on the screen, with the ultimate goal being mindless action. -The zombies in this film are treated as sick people who kill anything not-sick. For the very first time they can be cured back to normality, although they do not bother to show the psychological scars they would have after killing so many innocents, and then being covered in their blood. Also, they have very inconsistent powers, as they can spring like crazy in one scene and stumble slowly in another. -The plot is about the straightforward revenge of a merchant, whose wedding was ruined by an assassination attempt. It doesn’t have any political intrigue, or messages around terrorism and wars for natural resources. It’s a huge downgrade from Damnation, but still bearable compared to the complete trainwreck that was Degeneration. -The monsters were defeated too easily by the heroes, so there was never a case where you would think the heroes might not win. CAST Every known character from the games became a complete badass who can perform improbable acrobatics and defeat a hundred opponents all alone. Everyone who is not in the games, is a complete fodder who dies after a single hit. Rebecca is treated like a damsel in distress at the hands of a sociopath, even when she is supposed to be dynamic and competent. None has depth to his personality and comes off as a one-dimensional archetype. LEGACY Despite the breath-taking visuals, I place it between Degeneration and Damnation. It is serviceable as a mindless action flick that panders the fans of the games, but has nothing interesting outside of the action.
Didn't even know before that this film even existed. I only discovered it by accident. Apparently he doesn't have a particularly big reputation. However, I cannot understand its lack of range. For every fan of the Resident Evil series, the film is clearly a piece of gold. Story has never been the yellow of the egg in Resident Evil, but here the style of the game series is well taken up and continued. The animations are very solid, as are the whole action scenes. Can't complain about anything in the area. The characters were also well hit and staged. 2 of the big biohazzard favorites can be seen fighting in the spotlight here. The streak is clichéd on every bet, but it doesn't make it any less likeable. Zombies, explosions, action and a badass protagonist. In the scheme, you have everything here.
