Its being torn apart on IMDB like a pack of wolves fighting for the last meaty bone of the kill
. Long time RE fans, so I can understand the passion
. Thor's a childhood comic hero, so I wanted the helmet. Instead I got an unhelmeted, and even un-uniformed hemsworth for much of the movie. But Hemsworth drew tons of chicks to the movie, allowing it to total 450M worldwide, guaranteeing the sequel this November, and hopefully a third movie. So its forgivable
. I'm expecting the helmet in November though.
Being more of a Sega fan, I mainly dealt with their home consoles, before switching to Microsoft's XBOX. For a while Resident Evil was an exclusive Sony property, so my experience with the games is limited. I played one on Sega's console, and I finished another one earlier this year that had been released on Nintendo 3DS
. Pretty good one too!
So I looked at the 3D Blu Ray for what it was, a mindless action flick to add to the 3D collection I'm building.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Nothing REALLY stood as extreme pop out. A gun magazine, a small mechanical spider, and a sickle like weapons fly AT the screen, but the scene cuts off before these objects come OUT the screen
At one point two giant hooded execution zombies appear and and swing huge axes toward the screen, but not OUT. One swings the axe through a glass window for the out-the-screen shatter effect.
Other than that its the squid like growths that come out the zombies' mouths? But I felt there was a missed opportunity with the giant monster.
They could have done more to show it clawing out the screen or tongue coming out. Directors like to use beasts like this to launch attacks out the screen at the viewer
I watched the movie in my player's mode 1 slight verticle increase with slight side cut off. So I was able to see the subtle 3D as well, not just the pop out stuff. Whenever there was a large group of villains together, small groups of that crowd would would be on separate plains of the image, do you can see that some are in the front, some in the rear, some in between.
As for the movie itself, cool opening scene that felt like a music video, with the last battle from last movie being played in reverse.
There's also some SERIOUS kick butt action scenes
. In one scene, she is charged at by 20 zombies and commences to kicking some serious butt
. They slow mowed it, and it looked truly awesome.
The end battle was another decently choreographed fight scene.
Must buy? Naw. But if you want a blast-em-up with some open-a-can fighting, I'd add this. Got it for only 27 bucks.
Its interesting that human/human and human/zombie fight scenes are better than the monster battles!
