One of my all time favorites.
Excellent, Without a doubt!!
There is, somehow, an interesting story here, as well as some good acting. There are also some good scenes
It's the kind of movie you'll want to see a second time with someone who hasn't seen it yet, to remember what it was like to watch it for the first time.
As movie have progressed we've seen more and more use of CGI (Computer Generated Images) in films. In some cases, most of the SyFy channel films, we see how poorly it can be done making viewers long for the stop motion animation we grew up with in the Sinbad movies. In others, as in all of the LORD OF THE RINGS movies, we see how it can be done right and help a story along depicting things we could never see otherwise.Then there is the all CGI film, the one where actors are no longer seen emoting but animated images portray the characters. I'm not talking about animated Disney films like FROZEN or Universal's MINIONS. I'm talking about realistic images, stories with people as the main characters instead of cartoonish images. Not many have been made but there have been several using the hit video game RESIDENT EVIL for their stories. The latest in this series, RESIDENT EVIL: VENDETTA is now out and it's the best yet.If you're new to the series all you need to know is that an evil corporation known as Umbrella has released a toxic agent into the world that turns people into zombies. This movie opens much like the very first original game as a special ops team enters an old mansion in search of survivors. That in itself will bring glee to fans of the game. The horror that they encounter is much like the game as well, catching the viewer off guard and allowing for some intense physical combat between the team and zombies. Team leader Chris Redfield (one of the main characters from the game) remains standing and is evacuated without what he came looking for, a weapons dealer named Arias who has annihilation in mind.Along with this we have to concurrent stories running. One involves Rebecca Chambers, another special ops fighter who has turned in her gun to search for a cure for the zombie plague. All of that may be for naught when her lab is attacked and all inside turned into zombies. She escapes with the help of Chris before becoming infected herself. The two of them find compatriot Leon Kennedy and recruit him to help in their mission, finding Arias.Arias story is the third part of this triangle. It seems the arms dealer was in the process of getting marred when the party was bombed by a drone. Surviving he has set his sights on those responsible and now has in mind changing the world to suit his desires, one of which is resurrecting the love of his life. Aiding him in his quest are the only other survivors of that bombing, now mutated with his help.The story moves along in a reasonable manner, with plenty of background provided and a depth of story most movies like this tend to ignore. The action flows at a steady pace but is complimented by those story elements, making it a more well-rounded film.The CGI here is pretty amazing to witness. While it still has some minor flaws it does make you wonder if the day won't come when CGI created actors fill the screen in place of those now performing. From an economic point of view one might expect it. But my guess is that real life actors and technicians will be with us for some time. It doesn't mean that we can't enjoy films like this at the same time though.For me what made this movie more enjoyable than the others I've seen in the series is that homage back to the original game. I've never been a huge game player but my son was for a time. I can recall the time we sat together playing the original game, both jumping when startled by some attacking creature. We laughed, our hearts beat faster and we had a good time. This movie reminded me of those days and for fans of the game it's likely to do the same for you.If you're new to the world of RESIDENT EVIL find a game player and have them show you the first game. You could also watch the live action series of films which tend to move in and out of the world created by the games. Or you can jump into the middle of things with this movie and have a good time as well. For me I'll think I'll add this one to my shelf and give it a watch every now and then. It was just that much fun.
RE Vendetta isn't bad. Im not gonna bore you with mindless reading. The animated films are better then the real films created mainly cause it feels like your just watching huge ass long CGI moment from a game and its fun.I was lucky enough to watch the first 9 minutes released online and was so on edge about it.The mansion just made me instantly fall in love with this but ill be honest the suspense then dropped.Leon AGAIN was the special agent who can dodge bullets and pretty much be like Neo in the matrix. people are tired of Leon playing the lead and a smug agent who can just kill zombies using his pinky.SPOILER the one thing that kept me interested was what would happen to rebecca, it kept me on edge.as for Chris, he seemed like the usual guy he is in games and films but they need to stop making Leon this amazing character.The story itself wasn't too impressive and its not a film id probs watch again but it was OK 6 / 10
Visually this movie is great. Good facial expressions and decent "gun- fu" scenes. But the story is totally boring. Yeah, it's good to see Leon, Chris and Rebecca again, but the plot is totally predictable. No meaningful suspense and the explanations are too shallow. But again, as a RE game fans, if you ask me, which one would you prefer to watch, this movie or those RE live actions, I won't hesitate to pick this movie. At least the lore is still original.

Director Takanori Tsujimoto's Resident Evil: Vendetta animated movie was so boring Literature, Direct, and was so boring expect CGI.And one thing that funny is every time when people blow up somehow their arm is left.Oh and only good one is CGI and fighting was good as video game.And i think some video games should stay as video game not movie.
