Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

A cacophony of abstract action-horror mayhem, this fifth entry in the video-game-inspired franchise has superheroine Alice (

Milla Jovovich

) killing zombies as per usual as she tries to escape an underwater complex. The story of ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’ reintroduces familiar places and faces, including

Michelle Rodriguez

’s resurrected angel of death, and it makes little sense. No matter, though – from the opening, viewed-in-rewind set piece to a sweeping final image of apocalyptic warfare, director

Paul WS Anderson

uses slow-motion 3D to way-over-the-top effect, while again casting Jovovich as the ultimate in badass sexiness. It’s a late franchise entry that reduces genre elements to their beautiful-nightmare visual core.
