Keenan S (fr) wrote: To be honest, Resident Evil: Damnation is by far my least favorite of the Resident Evil films. Then again, as you can see, that's not really being negative on account of my very positive 4/5 rating. Many would probably say that it's the best of the Resident Evil films, but I still have great fondness for the wild Milla Jovovich antics and I don't mind that those films don't exactly follow the games that I also enjoy. This entry, though flawed, is still a whole lot of fun to watch, especially for fans of over the top action flicks.The story follows Agent Leon Kennedy who has been sent to the fictional Eastern European country, Eastern Slav Republic, to investigate the country's possible use of BOWs (Bio-Organic Weapons). But before he can begin his mission, he is informed that his mission has been aborted and that he is to retreat immediately.But, being Leon Kennedy, he promptly ignores the order and goes on the hunt for BOWs, which is immediately confirmed when he has a run-in with Lickers in a parking garage. These Lickers are different however, and even though Leon is vulnerable to be killed at one point, the creature does not at the command of its master and Leon is instead captured by rebel fighters.Meanwhile, the mysterious Ada Wong, posing as a BSAA agent, meets with the country's president and she reveals that there is a way to control the BOWs for war purposes, which intrigues the government officials as a way to help them in the country's civil war.Soon Leon and Ada find themselves entangled in the country's civil war plus the over the top Resident Evil brand of biological warfare as a number of the series' favorite creatures make an appearance to duke it out with each other and the humans. Now, Leon must find a way to put an end to all of this to save the world yet again (Damn, this poor guy never seems to get much of a break does he?).My biggest problem with this Resident Evil entry is its storyline. It wants to be a super-serious political film with torrid drama thrown into the mix, but it also wants to do this while ridiculous scenarios play out like Ada Wong getting into a wild martial arts battle with the country's president like something ripped straight out of a wild Hong Kong action flick or The Matrix. I will give Damnation credit for being rather ambitious in a franchise that is not particularly renowned for storytelling, but its ideas become muddled and create a genre dichotomy that doesn't quite work. I actually became confused trying to follow the storyline because it goes all over the place.When it comes to the acting, the voice acting is actually quite good and shows a significant improvement from the franchise's early days of hilariously bad voice acting ("You were almost a Jill sandwich!"). It was actually professional and the actors were able to make some scenes that would have fallen flat and made them feel sincere and believable (Well, most of the time, there are a couple of scenes that no one could make sound good). As a whole, the voice acting is terrific.The best part of Resident Evil: Damnation is the action. This film features some of the most ridiculous and over the top action not only of the franchise itself, but also among virtually any action film released over the last 15 years. The fight scene with the president alone is the shining pinnacle of this film's lunacy and it was an absolute hoot chock-full of excitement and what-the-fuck moments. There's also plenty of other martial arts battles, zombie mayhem, creature mayhem, explosions, gun battles, and more (Including what is quite possibly, the most bizarre anti-suicide scene in the history of cinema. You have to see it to believe it).While Resident Evil: Damnation partly suffers because it takes itself far too seriously for its own good at some points, it's still a damn fine loony action film. It's a wild ride from start to finish and one of the more bizarre entries of an already strange franchise. Even if you've never played the games or seen the other films, this one is worth watching if you love ridiculous action films.
Murong B (ag) wrote: It took me until about a third of the way into the film to become intrigued with the characters and seems a little loose and maybe even random until that point. Beeswax can be awkward from time to time but I noticed that its strength in that awkwardness is driven by the fact most people actually communicate and interact this way unlike the perfection shown in most other movies.
Nate W (nl) wrote: This frothy, nostalgia-steeped film may be a bit overdone and self-indulgent at times, but it does an excellent job at conveying time and place; Faubourg, France, in 1936, realized by beautiful production and costume design, and a healthy dose of old school Parisian music, including the film's lovely theme "Loin de Paname". The many characters and subplots are a bit much for this feather-light examination of the issues concerning French citizens on the cusp of the second World War, but its gentle humour and familiar let's-put-on-a-show narrative should be a treat for anybody fond of the films of the 1930's, to which this movie often alludes. It probably would have worked better as a full-fledged musical though.
Jess L (ru) wrote: A simple story that plays out well but is by no means a fantastic film. This French romantic comedy sets out with an interesting premise and executes it in a cute and lovable way through some lovely performances from the two leads. I'm not sure what holds this back from being a great or even brilliant film. Some have compared it to Breakfast at Tiffany's, which is quite absurd, but a nice film to compare to for the purpose of quality. Both deal with female protagonists who are call girls/ women who use wealthy men, and both women fall in love with a man who is quite the opposite to what they usually chase. The similarities end there pretty much. Hepburn in BAT gives a wonderful performance, Tautou is an equally talented actress in my opinion, however the screenplay here doesn't allow this to show. It's cute without aiming to be anything more. So enjoy this as a French rom com with some very fine moments but overall falling a little flat in places. It feel a little too neat.

Simple, and dated now - but not in a terrible way. Twice as good as it would'a been without Brown - the man exudes oodles of the best kind of charm out there - the laconic, unpretentious, Aussie kind.
Stefan G (nl) wrote: Since I was 17, I have been attracted to this film. Back then, it was because I viewed it as an anti-smoking film that satirized the tobacco industry (for which I maintain a frothing hatred of). Today, this is still a big selling point for me, but I have a lot more critical experience, and thus I can say that this film is even better now than it was when I first saw it four years ago. The film is ostensibly satirical of the tobacco lobby, and through the film's main character Nick Naylor, this is done spectacularly well. However, the film deftly avoids being a one-dimensional anti-smoking film by also skewering the other side, showing the cunning, manipulation, and opportunism of both the tobacco industry and the anti-smoking movement. The performances were very skilful, sharp, witty, and positively scintillating, especially in the scenes where Naylor tries to connect to his son. The characters were brilliant, and the way they develop is always an interesting sight thanks to a stellar script and direction that is above reproach. The film opens with a stylistic homage to cigarette packaging, which I thought was little more than a stylistic way to open the film until the Senator unveiled his plan, which becomes the main plot of the film. A film like this would be boring without razor-sharp wit, and this film carries it in enough buckets to fill an open grave. In my opinion, this is one of the most intelligent comedies I've yet to see in film, and it's not just because of my usual leanings on the subject. Whatever you believe, I'm very certain that it is both as insightful as it is witty and entertaining.
