United States Special Agent Leon S. Kennedy sneaks into a small Eastern European country to verify rumors that Bio Organic Weapons (B.O.W.s) are being used in war. Right after his infiltration, the U.S. government orders him to leave immediately. Determined to uncover the truth, Leon ignores the order and enters the battlefield to end the chain of tragedies caused by the B.O.W.s.
User Reviews: I have mixed feelings about this movie. The 3D CGI, while not being perfect, provided enough realism to put in doubt the classification of "animation film". The script had different factions, character development, lots of action (without it being too much over the top) and by that standard alone was a lot better than the Resident Evil films.
Of course, there were plot holes and no Milla Jovovich and also, I believe because of rating purposes, there was not much gore or horror. Consider it an action film with monsters, but this time a definite improvement from Resident Evil: Degeneration, the animation movie from 2008. Plus, some sentimental scenes were pretty far stretched almost to the point of annoyance.
Bottom line: I watch Resident Evil films for Milla and the monsters. I like the monsters, but I like Milla more. This film had more story, no Milla and was 3D animated. There was less gore and no horror. While I find it hard to admit, I think I’ve enjoyed this film more than the live actor versions.
