A new clip has surfaced for Paul W.S Anderson’s Resident Evil: Retribution, and it features Alice and Jill having a good old punch up, although it is missing some dialogue. I must say that for a choice of clip to release to promote the film, this is awful. The music is dreary and adds nothing to the action, and the whole scene feels very amateurish and a bit flat. In fact, sadly this clip is the first thing I have seen that actually has me worried that the film might not be as good as I was hoping.
I am keeping my fingers crossed that due to some sound issues this is just a glitch, but why release a clip with sound issues? Maybe this is the real thing (just without the dialogue), and if so, then this is not very good at all. The timing feels all over the place, the action is poorly shot, and none of the cast appear to be ‘getting into’ their roles. Oh dear!

The Umbrella Corporation’s deadly T-virus continues to ravage the Earth, transforming the global population into legions of the flesh eating Undead.
