Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter ★★★

This movie is insanely stupid. Like, every move is totally dumb. Everything is a cliche. Alice does the "Is that all you got?" thing to someone beating her up TWICE. The final act borrows liberally from Anderson's previous "Event Horizon" movie. The cliffhanger from the last film is completely dropped with barely a sentence of explanation. Someone uses thermal imaging to spot zombies. Let that sink in for a second. Umbrella could have won by doing absolutely nothing the entire movie. The dialogue is 100% atrocious.

BUT. Once they get to Raccoon City, the movie is so bonkers and over the top, it's hard to be mad at. It gets so insanely fun and crazy and weird and joyous in celebration of goofy nonsensical, last-minute continuity.
