Resident Evil: Degeneration

Taking place a year after Resident Evil 4, this RE movie is actually related to the game more than just in name and places and is good until the last drop of blood. In this CG flick, Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield are reunited when there's an outbreak of the T-virus at an airport and during the investigation, they find that terrorists may be trying to get hold of the virus to use and devastate the country with a zombie plague. Not a bad little plan. It's up to Leon, the ultimate badass and Claire to stop them.

The CG is good, looking a lot like cutscenes from RE4 and the voice acting is decent. It's a kick to actually get a story that ties into the games for once and it's handled rather well. It's not exceptional but it's a fun ride and even Hunnigan makes an appearance. I hear the outcome of this movie factors into RE5 a little bit, so it's nice to have a bridging film right before the new game gets released. I am disappointed that Leon didn't suplex or roundhouse kick anyone but he did use his intense macking skills on a new chippie in the film. Oh, that Leon.

Check it out.
