Res­i­dent Evil: The Fi­nal Chap­ter (15)

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket -

Fif­teen years on from its first in­stal­ment, the fran­chise many thought would never die fi­nally shuf­fles off into a not-so-early grave.

I’ve ac­tu­ally re­mained a be­grudg­ing fan of the se­ries and one of its best vi­su­als was the pre­vi­ous film’s clos­ing scene of crea­tures de­scend­ing on the White House.

Alas, Paul WS An­der­son — helm­ing his fourth Res­i­dent flick — fails to build on this and de­liv­ers a bog­stan­dard Fi­nal Chap­ter.

As ever, lead­ing lady Milla Jovovich is a gutsy, butt-kick­ing force of na­ture and there are some neat gory kills.

But sev­eral key plot points and twists come and go in sham­bolic, loud and oc­ca­sion­ally in­com­pre­hen­si­ble fash­ion.
