Franchise filla for Milla
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.
