Well, I guess they’re still making these movies. Director Paul W.S. Anderson, Milla Jovovich, and Ali Larter came out at Comic-Con to plug the new Resident Evil movie, which is in….get ready….3-D! We’re still excited by that, right? Listen, if you saw the 3rd, or even 2nd Resident Evil film, then nothing I can say will persuade you to avoid this one, so you might as well come on in and find out what they shared with us…
On top of the theatrical trailer that’s already been released, they unveiled a scene in which “The Executioner,” a bad guy from the Resident Evil 5 video game, battles the two leading ladies in what looks like a prison shower. Once the fighting starts the film starts moving in super slow motion. The giant axe wielding, nail faced bad guy starts blindly swinging his weapon, slicing pipes in half, sending water gushing everywhere. They jump around, slide through puddles, and send little droplets of water flying in all three dimensions. It looks so real! Just like water does in real life! Did you hear me? WATER! WOAH!
I’m sure the slow motion is intended to show off the glorious image of 3-D, but the scene drags on so slowly, and the fighting style is so plodding, that it gets extremely boring VERY quickly.
To its credit though, the film was shot on James Cameron’s Phantom 3-D camera system, so the effect was not simply a digital afterthought. When the president of Hollywood demanded more 3-D movies so they could charge 20% more for a crappy picture, Paul W.S. Anderson clearly had the vision to jump forward and say, “you know what would look great in 3-D? Brains!”
