I’ve never played any Resident Evil game. That, I dare to say, is the main reason why I’ve always enjoyed the movies. For me, the Resident Evil world is Project Alice and T Virus. No Chris or Jill or Leon to compare with or grouch over. I go into the movies to see Alice i.e. the ever gorgeous Milla Jovovich kick ass. She never disappoints.

What I’m saying is, I think the movies work. As action flicks, that is. So does Resident Evil: The Final Chapter.

Now, I’m not oblivious to the flaws Final Chapter has. There are abundant WTF moments, and god devices just keeps popping up every other scene. (Ammo waiting for you in a corridor, like in a game) But come on, who watches a movie like this for plot? It’s all about gore and sexy lethalness. In these areas, the movie delivers, in my opinion. Somewhat predictably, maybe. But nonetheless, still enjoyable.
