Resident Evil Degeneration - A Movie Review
Posted on December 07, 2008 by Oscar Gonzalez

By means that I won't reveal, I got my hands on the newest Resident Evil movie: Resident Evil Degeneration. For those who don't know, because I sure as hell didn't know, the movie was announced back on Oct. 29, 2007 and it's all CG. With this announcement coming from Capcom and Sony Pictures, it's apparent that these movies are actually going to take part in the Resident Evil storyline rather than the whatever storyline that came out of Hollywood movies. Not that the movies are bad, but come on, did they have to jump right into the fuckin' Apocalypse on the third movie?!

Anyways, back to Resident Evil Degeneration. The movie takes place 7 years after the destruction of Raccoon City. Claire Redfield arrive at Harvardville Airport (wherever the hell that is) to meet up with a friend. As you'd may expect, when a Resident Evil character shows up in a place with a lot of people, there's bound to be zombies around. She's not alone in the action when Leon shows up after the zombies have taken over the airport. The plot makes a good point of modernizing the story in a post 9/11 world with the idea of a zombie virus being a must have for any terrorist group. Another interesting plot tool is the use of the idea that some people may have no idea what the hell a zombie is.

The quality of the CG is a bit higher than that of the current generation of video games. It's right along the lines of the other video game CG movie, Final Fantasy Advent Children. An added treat is that both Claire and Leon are voice by the same actors that provide the voices for the character within the RE games. Even though the mouth animation is for the Japanese voices, it's very hard to really notice it.

As a fan of Resident Evil, it's great to see an entire movie filled with that Resident Evil goodness with a story line that works well within the whole RE storyline. You can tell that this movie wasn't designed to win any awards or break box office records, but instead it's a movie made for the fans.

Here's a video I created of some exciting points in the movie. It has spoilers in it, but then again, you wouldn' be reading this if you didn't mind the spoilers.
