The restarted version of “Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City” has been released soon, and the latest movie has been watched in advance.
The audience who participated in the advance viewing of the film posted the first wave of comments on the film.
Let’s take a look at these specific evaluations. I will briefly review the content of a few comments, and then take a comprehensive look at how this restarted version is going.
Okay, let’s talk about your views on “Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City” based on the above and other comments.
1.The reducibility of “Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City”.
“Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City” is adapted from the first and second generations of the original game, and the main style is more similar to the second generation remake.
The main scenes of the film involve the Raccoon City Police Station, the mansion and the orphanage, of which the orphanage is the most important scene.
The horror atmosphere of “Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City” and the deliberately made retro colors are excellent.
Of course, since it is an adaptation of the movie, it may be filmed completely according to the original plot of the game.
There are some subversive settings in the film, especially about characters, such as Lyon’s comedy role.
2.The special effect of “Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City”.
“Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City” only has an investment of about 40 million US dollars, which is similar to the previous six-part Paul Anderson.
But the director Paul Anderson is very good at using low-cost investment to make a sense of high-level.
For example, “Aliens.vs.Predator” and “Monster Hunter” are actually not high investments.
And Johannes Roberts seems to be not very good at this aspect, the CG sense of the big boss in the trailer is really too heavy.
Many comments have mentioned that the special effects of “Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City” are not very good, but they can still be seen.
When the lineup was first exposed, the audience seemed to be satisfied with the protagonist lineup.
Especially the heroine Claire played by Kaya Scodelario, she is the absolute heroine of the film.
Although other characters performed well, they didn’t have many roles, so they lacked characterization.
The response to the role of Leon has been polarized. Some people say that he vividly interprets the image of a rookie policeman, while others don’t like him becoming a funny comedy character in the film.
Because “Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City” has many characters, many story lines, and its short duration (107 minutes), the film looks a little messy.
Many viewers have talked about such a problem, saying that the film is packed with too many elements.
Moreover, the first half of “Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City” progressed slowly, and the second half ended hurriedly.
5.There is an easter egg at the end of the film involving Ada Wong played by Lily Gao.
Overall, judging from this wave of audience feedback, compared with the previous six-part Paul Anderson’s previous six-part series, the film has a smaller story pattern, but the story line has become more complicated.
“Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City” does not try to make a big movie like the old version, but fully demonstrates the B-level movie style.
Series fans can appropriately increase their expectations, while passersby audiences can appropriately lower their expectations.
“Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City” will be released in North America on November 24th.
