Movie Review: Resident Evil: Retribution

  Unconsciously, we have had five Resident Evil film in the past ten years, 10 years of Alice waking up in a lab of Umbrella Company and escaping then extend the life of this action-horror movie. Ten years ago, that’s 2002, Alice was an employee of Umbrella and now she made retribution. Sometimes, I couldn’t understand that how could Resident Evil fresh the story with just endless zombies and deathless Alice. However, I never miss any one of the “Resident Evil” entries since the first one hit in 2002. 
Resident Evil: Retribution

  The newest film, Resident Evil: Retribution, picks up right where we left off in 2010’s Resident Evil: Afterlife with Alice and her ragtag group of survivors taking their last stand on a ship out in the middle of the ocean.  While being bombarded by 30 hovercrafts, Alice is blown off the boat and left unconscious in the water. She awakens in a suburban home as a homemaker with a husband and a young daughter. The story opened without pressing screen, this dream life last all of 60 seconds before infected humans attack their home, that make a great contrast to the upcoming blood fight. Safe life is so dear!
  Alice escapes again and must escape through different Umbrella testing facilities (Russia, Suburban, and NY) and meet up with another ragtag bunch that’s there to help her escape, similar plot unfolds.
  In “Resident Evil: Retribution,” writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson attempts to fill out a flimsy plot structure by making the characters’ comings and goings overly convoluted. So what else is new? One development involves the Umbrella Corporation’s use of clones to test the effectiveness of its viral weapons in simulated versions of locales like New York, Moscow, Tokyo and that nation of lost souls, Suburbia. Anderson has also introduced a new character, Ada Wong, who joins Alice’s fight against those evil corporate forces while wearing the unlikeliest of superhero outfits, a brocade stripper dress slit thigh-high and worn with vertiginous heels.

Resident Evil: Retribution  But visually, at least, it all works. Alice and her ragtag assortment of cohorts fend off — in addition to the requisite zombies — a massive creature with a lamprey’s mouth and a slimy, visible brain, and two lumpy behemoths wielding executioner’s pole axes. The movie’s most intriguing sequence comes early on: It’s a flashback — or is it? — Of Alice’s life in suburbia  in the days before the virus hit. She has blonde mom hair, she’s married to a dreamboat husband, and she has a young daughter, Becky, who happens to be deaf. Alice doesn’t remain blonde-mom Alice for long, but even after she’s returned to being black-latex Alice, she retains motherly feelings toward Becky, striving to protect the girl from all that free-floating resident evil.
  For this movie, you needn’t pay so much attention to plot.  It’s just an old style Alice story with new background. Most of us wait this film just want to know how Alice goes on and bit those disgust zombies. I wouldn’t tell my friend that the Retribution is an excellent movie, but I would never miss the next one.

Movie Review:The Possession

  The movie season of this summer has reach the ending, The horror film "The Possession" is set to claim the No. 1 over the last weekend, though the most frightening thing at the box office may be poor overall ticket sales.

  THE POSSESSION is a far more generic title than the film’s original moniker THE DIBBUK BOX, and it’s a transition reflected in the movie itself. What starts out with a fairly distinctive scenario and threat eventually segues into overly familiar territory, though not without occasional chilling pleasures along the way.
  Jeffrey Dean Morgan plays Clyde Brenek, a divorced father of two girls trying to do right by them. At a yard sale, his younger daughter, Em(Natasha Calis) discovers a mysterious old box, one seemingly made not to be opened and covered in Hebrew writing. They buy it, and Em discovers a way to open the box, which releases an evil spirit trapped within. The spirit possesses her, although only Clyde realizes that there’s something wrong with her beyond the normal anxieties brought on my divorce. He begins racing against time to find a way to seal the spirit back in the box before it takes Em’s life to come into the world.
  The only thing that separates this movie from any other exorcism story is its focus on a demon from Jewish folklore, rather than a Christian one. But functionally, that change makes no difference. It just means that the plot substitutes a rabbi for a priest in the exorcism scenes. It’s the same routine of chanting at the evil foe, only in Hebrew instead of Latin. Nothing the spirit, a dybbuk, does to Em feels particularly inspired, either. It makes a lot of moths fly around and sometimes tosses people about, but mainly its goal seems to be to make Clyde look like an abusive father, which is unintentionally funny.
  In fact, family drama is featured just as if not more than supernatural tomfoolery here. Clyde’s struggle to free his daughter coincides with his slow working his way back into the lives of his ex-wife (Kyra Sedgwick) and daughters. If the nature of the dybbuk in any way, shape, or form could conceivably stand in for the familial situation, then this film would have a bit of thematic power in it. But it doesn’t. The possession being a vehicle for Clyde to get back in their graces, rather than relating in some way to their problems, is honestly really weird. After all, if they get back together this way, what’s to stop things from unraveling again due to the same issues that came up in the first place?
  Good horror uses its monsters as symbolic of something real, something that we have honest reason to fear. Otherwise, there’s nothing really scary about them. The only stuff that could rattle anyone in this movie is a parade of threadbare techniques like jump scares, loud chords, and little girls looking creepy. And why do horror movies feel the need to be so loud? There are a few scenes here that could be honestly effective if they didn’t blare out the soundtrack every time it wanted to jolt the audience.
  The Possession has fairly nice performances at the ending of this movie summer. It’ll probably send more than a few people on their first dates into each other’s arms, but that’s about all it’s good for. Absolutely nothing makes it stand out from the field of horror movies, exorcism movies, or any movies.
