VOD news 29/22: ‘Resident Evil’, the worst was yet to come

VOD News brings you the best releases of the week on Netflix, HBO Max, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+… And we open in style with the new series of resident Evil… or maybe not? It will be, and the week is certainly weak. So much so that we highlight known bad, rather than good to know.

Thus, we start the weekly review with Netflix’s offer, at least numerous: almost twenty original and exclusive releases of which we barely highlight a couple, although as for tastes, colors, better take a look at the list for you same.

Netflix has premiered this week its new original series of resident Evil and… it’s a mess, yes. did you think it was bad Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness? Me too, but at least it had the scent of “resident evil” that having the original characters well adapted with their animation gave it. And what about Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City? Another nonsense, yes sir, although at least the tone was achieved. Well, this new series of Resident Evil is different.

To give you an idea, the story takes place between a past in which a pious black Albert Wesker -played by the solvent Lance Reddick (Fringe, John Wick), but not even for those- does he have to suffer his stupid teenage daughters, and a future in which one of these -Ella Balinska, known for another slop as was the last of Charlie’s Angels– acts as a decaffeinated Alice. But that’s not the worst of this new resident Evil.

The worst thing is that all the plot mess, the inconsistencies of characters and plots, could be ignored if the staging were worth it, but the series doesn’t even come to that: even the visual effects are embarrassing. With how easy -and cheap- it would have been to make a faithful adaptation of the first games. Anyway. Another missed opportunity that only the most enthusiastic of the franchise will appreciate, due to its extension.

So the answer is yes: the saga of Paul WS Anderson headed by Milla Jovovich, despite its derivation from the zeta series, is still the best thing ever done, animations aside. At least the original installment of 2002 that has just turned a whopping 20 years, but which the passage of time has respected a lot (if you want to revisit it to get rid of the current disappointment, you have it on HBO Max).

Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight

Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight It is not a new movie of this popular animation franchise, but a series, so if you liked the DreamWorks trilogy, Netflix has been left exclusively with this new serialized installment of the adventures of the most flexible panda in the Valley of Peace. For more adult animation, scroll down to Farzar.
