What is it?

The 2017 Japanese adult animated biopunk action horror movie Resident Evil: Vendetta (Biohazard: Vendetta).

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this animated movie:

RESIDENT EVIL: VENDETTA is the third installment in the massively popular CG animated film franchise, following Resident Evil: Degeneration (2008) and Resident Evil: Damnation (2012).

This one night event includes an exclusive introduction from the cast and behind-the-scenes footage.

Derived from Capcom’s Resident Evil(TM), one of the bestselling video game franchises of all time, RESIDENT EVIL: VENDETTA features the fan-favorite characters Leon S. Kennedy (Matt Mercer), Chris Redfield (Kevin Dorman) and Rebecca Chambers (Erin Cahill).

The film is produced by Marza Animation Planet (Space Pirate Captain Harlock), executive produced by Takashi Shimizu (The Grudge), written by Makoto Fukami (Psycho Pass), and directed by Takanori Tsujimoto (Bushido Man).

My Thoughts

This film possibly had the best overall animation of the three animated Resident Evil movies so far, it was better than the first and it was better in the beginning than the second movie, but it started to lose its way to where I still like the second film better because this film became an over-the-top action movie that became to unrealistic to ignore.

They somehow managed to make this movie feel too contained even though it took place in several locations including a major city, which was a bad thing in this case, and what happened and what did not happen was so unrealistic that it bothered and annoyed me and had me pointing this out throughout the movie as dumb things happened.

The end,
