Ok, let's watch the new Resident Evil by Netflix...
Still on vacations, family hit the bed exhausted from all the swimming and food and big walks we have, so I figured to watch the first episode of the new Resident Evil series that just made its debut on Netflix. Afterall, I grew up with the video games, and the franchise will always have a sweet spot in my heart!
I have watched some of the Resident Evil movies with the sexy redhead (Milla Jovovich) and they were total crap and since this is a Netflix production... Let's say my expectations weren't big when I clicked the play button. 😅
Well, since I have only watched the first episode I can't have much an opinion but so far it looks like an okayish watch. It definitely doesn't feel much of a resident evil thing... Zombies are fast, too much teenage drama bullshit and it's more action rather than horror. And I hate how zombies are referred as "zeroes" by the characters.. No, they are fucking zombies and hearing "zeroes" again and again is fucking cringy!
So yeah, it feels more like it iss own thing rather than Resident Evil.
Other than that the action was good, the acting watchable and the special effects pretty solid. I'll watch some more episodes and hopefully I won't be greatly disappointed.
Unfortunately I made the mistake (?) of reading some reviews and apparently everyone seems to hate the series, lmao. Hopefully it's just butthurt RE fanboys and I won't totally waste my time 🤣
