RESIDENT EVIL: THE FINAL CHAPTER

oiram
This post was updated on .
A FRANCHISE IS FINALLY (HOPEFULLY) BEING PUT TO REST, AND PEOPLE ARE MAINLY SCREAMING OUT "THANK GOODNESS!" THIS RESIDENT EVIL FILM SERIES HAS ANNOYED CRITICS AND MANY MOVIEGOERS, BUT THEY KEEP GETTING MONEY, SO MORE GET MADE. SINCE IT IS NOW A RAZZIE NOMINATED SERIES, WITH MILLA JOVOVICH BEING NOMINATED FOR THE LAST ONE, IT MAY GET MORE ATTENTION, OR MAYBE NOT, BUT WE SHOULD NOT IGNORE IT SO SOON.

MANY HAVE SAID THAT THIS IS NOT REALLY A MOVIE. SOME COULD ARGUE IT WOULD BE A GOOD NOMINEE FOR THE ONE TIME CATEGORY "WORST EXCUSE FOR AN ACTUAL MOVIE." THE FILM HAS BEEN DESCRIBED AS A SERIES OF JUMPS SCARES, ACTION SEQUENCES, AND EXPOSITION SCENES, OFTEN STARTING WITH MILLA GETTING PLOPPED IN THERE OUT OF NOWHERE. THE ACTION SEQUENCES THEMSELVES ARE VERY HARD TO WATCH DUE TO THE WAY THEY ARE EDITED. SPEAKING OF MILLA, HER CHARACTER IS CONSTRUCTED TO BE THIS "AWESOME ACTION HERO", BUT SHE DOES NOTHING TO TRULY EARN THE TITLE. THE FINAL PROBLEM PEOPLE HAVE HAD IS THAT IT HAS ONE FINAL TWIST THAT COULD HURT EVEN FANS OF THE MOVIE SERIES, WHO HAVE STUCK WITH IT UNTIL NOW. OH, AND THE DAUGHTER OF THE STAR AND THE WRITER/DIRECTOR IS MAKING HER SCREEN DEBUT IN THIS MOVIE.

WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK? SHOULD WE CLOSE THE BOOK ON THIS "FINAL CHAPTER?"
Akiva Goldsman: The writer partially responsible for this year's triple threat of The Dark Tower, Rings, and, worst of all, Transformers: The Last Knight. I'll be shocked if all three screenplays do not make the ballots.

R.T. (35-40%): "It may prove mind-numbingly chaotic for the unconverted, but for fans of the venerable franchise, it offers a fittingly kinetic conclusion to its violent post-apocalyptic saga."

I had made a recommendation that we should give this series of unfaithful video game adaptations a send-off.  With a Tomatometer Rating higher than all of our Worst Picture nominees for 2016, that's becoming less and less of a possibility.

Why? As long as it doesn't have a rating higher than the nominees for next year's ceremony... By the way, so far, this movie also has the highest rating of the franchise.

I just saw it. For your consideration:
-Worst Supporting Actress for Ever Anderson.
-Worst Director.
-Worst Screenplay.
-Worst Prequel or Sequel.
-Worst Picture.
Oh, and maybe:
-Worst Actress for Milla Jovovich.
-Worst Supporting Actor for Iain Glen.
