Fran­chise filla for Milla

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - MOVIES - LEIGH PAATSCH

UN­TIL Milla Jovovich goes and grows a pot belly, there will be Res­i­dent Evils on a reg­u­lar ba­sis.

And so Jovovich slips into a skin- tight rub­ber uni­tard, slaps on a gri­mace and slinks men­ac­ingly through an­other 90 min­utes of ul­tra- vi­o­lent 3D sludge.

If any­one out there is still count­ing, we have now hit episode five in this based- on- a- video game saga.

Jovovich’s Alice ( imag­ine Ja­son Bourne as a fu­tur­is­tic fe­male re­cruited from a mod­el­ling agency) is still at war with Um­brella Corp.

As al­ways, Um­brella is all about spread­ing that zom­bie- can­ni­bal virus thing, but their re­cent di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion into cloning is also do­ing quite well.

So well, in fact, that a num­ber of ac­tors who died in ear­lier ResEvil’s ( hello Michelle Ro­driguez!) are free to stop by and pick up an­other pay cheque.

Alice’s for­mer best friend Jill ( Si­enna Guil­lory) now hates her to bits and wants to kill her. But that is prob­a­bly only be­cause of this gizmo Um­brella has stuck on her chest.

There’s also a lit­tle girl in the mix this time round, but that is prob­a­bly only be­cause Kate Beck­in­sale and the Un­der­world fran­chise al­ready have one.

Now show­ing Vil­lage Cine­mas
