Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The script is incoherent and the acting is terrible -- avatars would have been an improvement."
‑ Rafer Guzman, Newsday
"A zombie plague may have laid waste the world, but apparently supplies of black leather unitards have yet to be exhausted."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Anderson is often mistakenly dismissed as a hack but the artist is actually working within the confines of Hollywood genre cinema, constantly transcending and elevating it through the triumph of his avant-garde visual sensibility."
‑ Gareth Simms, Platform
"More high-calorie, low-sense, audiovisual CGI stimulation arrives in the form of this fifth and most roundly unsatisfying entry in the previously lithe and fun videogame franchise."
‑ Brent Simon, Screendaily
"It's a funny thing about Jovovich as Alice: she gives the character just enough personality, but not enough to break the somber apocalyptic mood."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Thuddingly awful."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"During the film's final sequence the director explains all while also suggesting that the franchise's nuttiest days are, remarkably, yet to come."
‑ Clark Collis, Entertainment Weekly
"Any unfortunate souls who wander in with no prior Resident Evil experience will wonder how something this anemic and shallow was ever popular. You and me both, friends."
‑ Eric D. Snider, Twitch
"It has a Rolls with spinning hub caps - what more do you want?"
‑ James O'Ehley, Sci-Fi Movie Page
"The Resident Evil films are not everyone's bag, although they seem to be evolving into their own brand of hyper-stylized cheese, made more extreme with each outing."
‑ Jeremy Wheeler, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Some sequels suggest that no one involved with a franchise really cares anymore."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"The acting is sometimes shockingly bad, but generally the script doesn't ask much of the actors, and the combat is effectively staged and often thrilling."
‑ Tasha Robinson, AV Club
"Looks are absolutely everything in Retribution, which melds stunning 3-D computer-graphics and spectacular sets with a skimpy storyline and zero characterization."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"More of the same idiotic swill that Anderson feeds his numbskull fan base."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
""Retribution" has actually got some very decent action and 3D effects. The story is still razor-thin. But, by the end of it all, I was ready for the next sequel, the presumed finale."
‑ Paul Chambers, Movie Chambers
