A mix movie

Resident Evil: Damnation is the second movie in the CGI Resident Evil series.

However I didn't feel like this game was as good as Degeneration or the recently Vendetta movies. It has it moments don't get me wrong but in my opinion the movie does not hold up as far as Resident Evil goes.

It just seem this movie would done better as a game or just a short book as a movie it leads much to be desire.

The animation in the movie is very good and the background and settings look stunning so that's a good plus. The characters look so life like that you forget you're watching CGI characters.

However some of the characters seem to have been nothing but wasted space as they did little or hardly anything new to the story. This of course not counting Leon and Ada two Resident Evil Legends.

The voice work is good with creative writing and quotes however again some of the characters just feels out of place and made you wonder why they even were put in the movie in the first place.

I'm not saying this is a bad movie but I'm not saying it's a great one either. It just seem Resident Evil: Damnation was only made to entertain the fans which I am a fan of the series however this one just felt weak mislead and out of place in the Resident Evil world. If not for the weak characters in the movie it might have work it does have good action scenes but you can only do so much for a movie based on a hit series.

I give Resident Evil: Damnation an 6 out of 10

Very well done!

As far as CGI and video game movies go this was the best one I've ever seen! The animation was really well done and that's saying something since this review is being written in 2017 for a CGI movie made 5 years ago.

The animation is very realistic (compared to other RE CGI movie that are more cartoonish). The plot is actually very engaging too! What impressed me the most is the intelligence of the characters. Even the faceless "fodder" bad guys were smart. They would communicate with each other and actually make smart decisions to try and stay alive. As a result when they died it felt more intense as they would die in a way that really seemed like there was no way to avoid death. I also had a few moments with legitimate jump scares which no CGI movie has ever been able to successfully achieve on me in the past.

If you have played Resident Evil 4 you will be able to appreciate a few easter eggs related to that game. Like when Ada comments about the last time she saw Leon (which was during RE 4). However, there is nothing in the plot of this movie that requires you to have played any of the games or watched any of the CGI or live action movies. Everything you need to know for the sake of the movie is explained to you.

There was also lots of action and a respectable amount of gore. Not on the level of a SAW movie but enough to feel the impact of it. I had paused the movie a few times just to admire the detail of how bad guys would be blow up or torn apart. There was also (surprisingly) a few adult sections with revealing cleavage that helped show the maturity of the film.

For whatever cheesy parts that happen in the movie (inherit of any video game CGI movie) it is completely forgivable as it is greatly overshadowed by the entirety of the movie.

This isn't a movie that you will spend days thinking about but it is a movie you will not regret watching. Definitely a good movie to watch at night or on a weekend.

Better than Degeneration, still not very good

-The CGI quality has improved slightly in motions and lip-sync. It also feels far darker, bloodier, and grittier.

-The setting is more interesting as it takes place in a war zone located in a city. No more silly fluffy areas and annoying civilians running around.

  • Voice acting is laughable, especially for Leon. I mean, come on, it's like he didn't even care to perform.


-The story moves away from the style of the first three movies, which was basically a zombie epidemic in a civilized area with some secret laboratories. It moves to the later trilogy, where there are no innocents. The civilians are all hostile and in this case, armed and dangerous, plus the whole place is in the middle of a civil war.

-There are technically no zombies in this film but rather possessed people. The result is pretty much the same but surely, it looks closer to tentacle monsters using human hosts.

-This time it is not so much about evil multi-national organizations trying to take over the world with bioorganic weapons. It is a lot more about localized political intrigue, and messages around terrorism and wars for natural resources. I must say it made the set up to feel far more realistic and interesting.

-Of course they hardly do anything smart with the whole thing. It's still gust a slugfest to the most part with the resolution being weak and almost anti-climactic. But at least it gives you the impression that the villains got away and almost won. It made it feel catchier this way.

-There are Tyrants as bosses. We can't do without them. Only this time they are mass produced and felt like they were beaten easily by mooks. Lame! -Leon grows a goatee and looks even more badass now. Other than that, he acts extremely uncaring and spouts lots of lame one-liners.

-No more of that bimbo Claire, thank God. Now we get Ada Wong being badass, manipulative, and even taking part in a cat fight. Now that's more like it! -Some rebels are in this movie and try to offer drama by mentioning how the stronger countries are manipulating them for resources and now that they resist decided to wipe them out. They could have made something interesting out of this but in just half an hour you stop caring about them, since the plot is basically Leon walking around and killing mutants. Very weak presence and importance.

-There is a politician present again, only this time it's not a weak fat cliché asshole. This one was smart, cunning, strong, and willing to do all it takes to have it her way. Yes, she is a woman to boot.

-And then we have undeadÂ… sort of. Closer to mutated bio-weapons in the form of Crimson Heads and Lickers. And apparently this time they are controlled telepathetically by a human who acts as a bee queen or something. It was an interesting twist to the mindless hordes of monsters up to now but still complete mooks to the plot.

-Overall, the second film had a smaller and more interesting cast, though clearly in terms of coolness and not depth.

-It is surely better than the first, less of a Romero rip-off, and more of an attempt at delving into politics and conspiracies. It still remains nothing but a one-timer, as it doesn't escape the tired Hollywood brain-dead action formula it is based upon, while the short duration makes it impossible to feel anything for the war drama. Which is kind of a shame considering how it began in a very interesting way.
