The ridiculously over the top movie franchise Resident Evil continues to live with a sixth film in the works. Sure, the movie franchise deviated from the video game franchise. It only took inspiration for the characters and more or less disregarded the stories. The movies didn’t take themselves seriously, and they were a lot of fun because of it.
Resident Evil: Retribution ended on a very different note than you’d expect from what is essentially a zombie movie. But then again, the movie felt more like a re-imagining of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty. And I cannot help but find it extremely fun.
What I’m trying to say is that the film franchise for Resident Evil is fun as long as you divorce it from the games. I’m entirely looking forward to a sixth movie. Which by the way, is slated for September 12, 2014.
Paul W.S. Anderson will direct, with Milla Jovovich reprising her role as Alice.
