What do you expect? Unlike Piranha 3D which is great because it's a big dumb fun film, ResEv is terrible because it takes itself seriously and fails miserably and utterly. Now, I haven't seen the third film because I can't be bothered so unless you somehow like the film series (and shame on you) then you will love this. The 3D effects are actually good because it's not a conversion. But it can't hide ropey CGI, crappy zombies, flimsy plot, cheesy acting and even cheesier psuedo-bullet time effects which have been out of fashion since the the mid noughties. And Milla Jovovich sounds like she's been smoking crack between takes. And they copied Wesker's fight scenes from RE5 and the zombie designs from 4, but not to good effect.
Dinner With Schmucks -
It's pretty funny but it strongly depends on how much of Steve Carrell you can stomach. When he plays a retard, he's hilarious (see Anchorman) but when he plays almost serious, he sucks (don't see that spy film he did with The Rock). This is more on the tard side and the gags are often hilarious, especially the scene-stealing done by The Hangover's Zach Galifinakis. Paul Rudd is a decent lead but the more cynical of you would probably cast this off as one of those typical Steve Carrell/Paul Rudd comedies. The actual dinner scene is great.
Did I already review this? Anyway, it's your typical thriller/action movie about government conspiracies and sleeper agents. Reminds me of those CIA Tom Clancy films but not as good as Patriot Games etc. Angelina Jolie is undoubtedly a good actress and it feels like her movie but it's just not particularly good. Not terrible either.
All the resident Evils are shite...
Schmucks looks mediocre...
Salt, just not bothered. Jolie is a good actress but im sick of the bloody sight of her (probabaly the tabloids fault). Plus never been convinced that someone who weighs as much as an envelope full of air could actually physically over power someone in a fight. Dunno why.
