Synopsis

Release Date:

December 21,2012

No amount of mediocre 3D trickery can save this non-sensical turkey. The Resident Evil film series is so far past its prime (if it ever had one) that even the most ardent of fans have to be shaking their heads at this latest effort. With a plot (we're using the term loosely) that barely contains a narrative to really lacklustre special effects to poorly directed and staged action sequences, Resident Evil: Retribution fails to deliver on any level.

Alice is back!  Milla Jovovich (Resident Evil Series) returns in the action-packed and adrenaline charged RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION, smashing out as a 2-Disc Blu-ray 3D™ Combo Pack, Blu-ray™, and DVD, all with UltraViolet™, on December 21st from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.  Jovovich reprises her role as Alice, Earth’s last hope, as the Umbrella Corporation continues to control the population by transforming humans into flesh-eating undead.  In this fifth installment of the multi-million dollar franchise, Alice is captured by the Umbrella Corporation and, with the help of her friends, must escape to save the human race. The film also stars Michelle Rodriguez (Battle Los Angeles), Sienna Guillroy (The Wicked Within), Kevin Durand (TV’s “Lost”), and Boris Kodjoe (Surrogates),  and features the popular game characters Leon S. Kennedy, Ada Wong, the Red Queen and Dr. Wesker.
 
Exclusive to the Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack and Blu-ray are deleted & extended scenes, as well as six featurettes. “Maestro of Evil: Directing Resident Evil: Retribution” features Anderson discussing his return to the franchise as the director of the film.  “Resident Evil: Reunion” presents original cast favorites, including Oded Fehr and Rodriguez. “Evolving Alice” highlights how Jovovich and Anderson continually evolve Alice’s character to keep her fresh after five movies (and counting). In “Design & Build: The World of Resident Evil: Retribution,” the filmmakers take viewers through the process of recreating the massive set and filming locations. “Resident Stuntman” features filmmakers and stunt coordinator Nick Powell discussing some of the most exciting and intense action sequences from the film.“Code: Mika” is centered around Japanese pop star Mika Nakashima, who reprises her role as “J-Pop Girl” in RE5.
 
The Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack and Blu-ray also come with an interactive map, “Project Alice: The Interactive Database,” which allows users can investigate the living, the dead and the undead of the Resident Evil universe.
 
The Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack, Blu-ray and DVD all come with cast, director and producer commentaries, as well as outtakes and the featurette “Drop (Un)Dead: The Creatures,” in which cast and crew discus various creatures from the franchise.
The Umbrella Corporation’s deadly T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead. The human race’s last and only hope, ALICE (Jovovich), awakens in the heart of Umbrella's most clandestine operations facility and unveils more of her mysterious past as she delves further into the complex. Without a safe haven, Alice continues to hunt those responsible for the outbreak; a chase that takes her from Tokyo to New York, Washington, D.C. and Moscow, culminating in a mind-blowing revelation that will force her to rethink everything that she once thought to be true. Aided by newfound allies and familiar friends, Alice must fight to survive long enough to escape a hostile world on the brink of oblivion. The countdown has begun.
 
RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION is a Constantin Film and Davis Films/Impact Pictures Production and was written and directed by Paul W.S. Anderson. It was produced by Paul W.S. Anderson, Jeremy Bolt, Don Carmody, Robert Kulzer and Samuel Hadida. Martin Moszkowicz executive produced.
