Resident Evil Retribution 3D review (2012)

The fifth part of of these science fiction thriller series is a direct follow up of the previous Resident Evil Afterlife with many of the same actors and characters as well as plot, the film is heavily influenced by the video game of the same name and famous sci-fi films.

The effects supervisor Paul Jones stated that he wanted the zombies make up to look realistic and took inspiration from “Day of the Dead” for that, many of the scenes also contain slow motion and bullet time effects reminiscent of “Matrix“. Filming locations include Toronto in Canada, New York in the US, Tokyo in Japan and Moscow in Russia, the film plot takes Milla Jovovich (Alice) visiting all of those locations around the world.
