Capcom’s Resident Evil:Damnation is the closest film yet to what a Resident Evil film should be with Leon here to fight off some B.O.W’s (Bio Organic Weapons) that ends in typical game like fashion; It feels as though it is one big cut scene straight from a non-existent Resident Evil game, but it does lack in some vital areas still. The animation work is superb thanks to some amazingly detailed CGI work which, with some good camera work, gives us some great action scenes that unfortunately lack in the horror the original games brought us, but still, this version of Resident Evil makes for a good watch far better than any of what Hollywood has been pumping out for years. The storyline was fairly weak and without depth, though it was mildy interesting – the sentimental scenes bordered on stupid and the lack of actual zombies here was disappointing to say the least, but it feels like a proper video-game adaption and one that any fan of the game would probably enjoy; perhaps another follow up would hit the nail on the head as this is already a big improvement on Degeneration.
