Very disappointing. Didn't really connect to the storyline. Only focused on non-stop carnage.

Resident Evil : Retribution is the 5th movie in the RE franchise, in which it mainly focuses on Alice escaping from the Umbrella underground chambers with hordes of bloodthirsty zombies attempting to kill her and her comrades before they reach the surface. And, that's mainly what this movie is ALL about. To me, it doesn't connect to the main storyline, it just shows This film, even though it is rated R for strong violence throughout, it's really not that pervasively bloody and there's hardly any gore. There is some mild language like d**n, h*ll, but doesn't exceed to f**k, sh*t and other crude terms, so language isn't a problem either. The special effects are mediocre, and the combat sequences very cheesy and nothing too suprising. It's alright for kids 14 and up, because the violence mostly just involves gun shooting, brief combat sequnces with mild blood, some frightening images of the zombies, and brief mild language. The character designs for Leon and Ada are VERY poorly executed. Waste of time and money when you decide to see this film.

Resident Evil: Retribution (2012) Review by Shivom Oza – Visually Flawless, Same Old Action-Template

‘Resident Evil: Retribution’, fifth film in the franchise, is nothing different from the rest. Honestly, too much is being done of this post-apocalyptic business! Filmmakers need to find newer settings. In almost every action film, there’s this after-the-end-of-the-world shanty township encroached upon by violent elements. It’s not working anymore. The story is not too different from the other films of the ‘Resident Evil’ series. To the credit of the filmmakers, the plot is kept concise and thankfully, short! Post-apocalyptic setting, Alice (Milla Jovovich) wakes up in an Umbrella base, having been captured at the Arcadia. Upon being interrogated by Jill (Sienna Guillory), Alice realizes that something is amiss. An unexpected power failure enables Alice to escape from her cell. Here, she encounters Ada Wong (Bingbing Li), from Albert Wesker’s (Shawn Roberts) team. Apparently, Ada and Wesker no longer belong to Umbrella. Wesker needs Alice’s help to battle the base’s supercomputer Red Queen (Megan Charpentier), in order to save the remaining of mankind. The build-up given to all the action sequences is fantastic. Not only has the cinematography (sublime work by Glen MacPherson) excelled, but the entire team contributing to the visuals (art direction, production design, editing, special effects etc.) have done a marvellous job! The opening credits, in particular, present scintillating visuals of Milla strutting all her action moves with a lot of gumption! Direction by Paul W.S. Anderson is just about fine. Performances by the cast are decent, nothing spectacular. The film will be enjoyed by fans of the ‘Resident Evil’ franchise and, in general, action movies! Luckily, the 90-odd minute duration works in the film’s favour. Watch it for the spectacular cinematography and the brilliantly-executed action sequences! Yes, there is a sixth film in the pipeline.

16 and up.

this fifth installment Resident Evil: Retribution has all the familiar characters from the resident evil game franchise and has a lot of action that will likely appeal to your older teens but parents you need to know that Resident Evil: Retribution has a lot of intense violence and some mild language used.
