YMMV / Resident Evil: Retribution

  • Awesome Music:
  • Harsher in Hindsight: The fact that Good Rain campaigned for gun control and is forced to use a gun anyway. Three months after the movie's release, gun control would become a hot button topic in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting.
  • Special Effects Failure:
    • During the Moscow chase, the car becomes an obvious CGI model at points, which becomes especially noticeable once it enters the subway station. The Lickers on the other hand fare a little better, and can be considered a step up compared to the stilted animatronics of the first film or the cartoonish looking ones from Resident Evil: Damnation.
    • Since the clone population never lives over a few hours, any family photos decorating their houses would have to be photoshopped, but the ones Alice studies look really photoshopped.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: Barry Burton, one of the series' most beloved characters, finally appears in this movie only to be killed off. Countless fans were not pleased.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: Good Rain is killed. Five minutes later, Bad Rain shows up in the same room. No potential Cloning Blues discussion is presented. Especially disappointing to those viewers hoping to see a Heel–Face Turn.
