Sony A8f 65 with Sony HTST5000
Max point 50/10 *** 35/10/ 3.5star
I’m rating this base on video, sound, character acting, story +progression, experience
The CGI is really great! This 4k version really stands out as one of the best I’ve seen in a while. There are some points where it’s not good, such as the main bad guy eyes looks like glass when they were close up. Eyes aren’t reflective like that, as a mirror. Also, another part is when the BCAA unit were in the heliport or talking over there plan, the faces were highly render to the point it looks like it was pasted on the body especially the black guy. The best-looking part is the wedding area near the end. The room, floor and clothes looked real. *8
The sound of there voices were great, my subwoofer made me feel and hear every gun shot and blast. While not as real sounding as real explosives it was still pretty good. The 4k movie support dobly atmos and 7.1HD*10
The story was simple and easy to follow but details were lacking. Like who was the woman and kid and why was he so attached to them. Where did the vial of blood go when it was one the table? did they get it? *I don’t feel like they flush some small details out.7
Acting here is for dialogues and heroes actions. Their dialogues for the most part was great * their actions were not. To many times the hero’s mainly Chris and Rebecca forgot that they were BCCA soldiers. Chris hesitated so many times in the first half of the movie that it didn’t feel natural. Like please pull the triggers already. Rebecca knows about this virus and what it does but when confronted by it she acted as if it was all new. These people are survivors and no way should they be slow reacting in these situations. Or stopping to look and wait till the infected is right in your face. Leon is about the only one who’s action seemed to reflect his history. *6
The Actions sequences borrow a lot of equilibrium like combat, which at times seem over the top and makes me wonder how he can do that, I know the bad guy can but the hero... The logic of the soldiers and main heroes at times are bad. The movie creates moments of fake suspense to create situations of scare that seems artificial and unnatural. One part the hero is more than 20 meters away from an elevator they see zombie coming out yet they don’t fire till the zombies are 2 meters away. And this scene is after the hero killed some infected after coming out of a nearby door. Seeing that the pathway forward is limited and the elevator being the only way forward the logical BCAA veteran didn’t seem so aware. There are a bunch of parts like this which make watching the movie very difficult for me. The movie is for RE fans with fan service. It’s nothing I would recommend to a person who never played or watched any of the RE films. I don’t intend to watch it again but since it does have a bunch of languages, minus Japanese, I can use it for learning purposes.
