(trailer review) - Resident Evil: Welcome to Racoon City


What I will say off the bat is, the Resident Evil movies were terrible.  They were horrendous BUT, some people liked them and had fun with them.  I was not one of those people.  I saw the first movie and it looked nothing like the first game I played and never completed on the first PlayStation (later called the PSOne).  I then went on to play a little bit of Resident Evil 2 and if I'm honest, I just couldn't get into them how I wanted because those computer games scared me a little, but I would run out of bullets and all that puzzle solving, hassle.  I did get and play Resident Evil 5 and I actually did really enjoy that one.  I was always intrigued with Resident evil and the lore was sooo interesting, but it really did stem from the first game...the mansion, the locked doors, the Lickers, so that first movie was just garbage and I believe I saw another after that, which was also garbage, but THIS trailer, looks alright.

The Music is terrible in this trailer, I'll say that, but the although the special effects in places isn't great at all, I do really like this trailer.  It does come across as a little cheap and I understand why this movie might be 30 million if that, to make, but it does seem like the movie has stuck as close to the first two games as possible whilst giving it a little face-lift with some of the characters and a little bit of the story.  What I would hope more than anything, is that they have or WILL work with the Biohazard team AND get as close to the story and lore as possible because the Resident Evil story is great and spans several decades.  I do feel they could have made this trailer scary and more tension based because even The Batman trailer is more scary and tension-filled.

Directed by Johannes Roberts and starring Kaya Scodelario, Hannah John-Kamen, Robbie Amell, Tom Hopper, Avan Jogia, Donal Logue and Neal McDonough
