So about the new Resident Evil movie

Either you know about this movie and are already at least vaguely interested, or it's news to you, in which case I'm not going to try to talk you into it.  Assuming you're in the former camp, here's the basic scoop:  it's better than the fifth, way better than the awful second, and loosely in the range of the first and the fourth.  (The third retains its standing as the best of the lot.)

Put differently, the action is non-stop and as realistic as ever (read:  not at all), the plot is as sensible as ever (read:  not at all), and Milla Jovovich acts as well as she does in these movies (read:  not well, but passably enough for the role).

I didn't love it, but I had a fun time watching most of it.

If you've seen them all, definitely catch this one.  If you've only seen a few, it's still worth checking out.

If you haven't seen any of them, check out the third.
