Resident Evil: Retribution pics – Jill Valentine and Carlos nab Ada Wong

 Ada Wong enters the fray in Resident Evil’s newest entry

Typically by this time I’d have posted the review for this Friday’s new releases, but Screen Gems opted not to hold press screenings for Resident Evil: Retribution. That’s translated in movie review speak as an abomination of a movie that the companies are so desperate for each movie ticket sale that they want the critics to have to pay for the right to warn others not to see it.

Normally, I don’t bother rewarding that moronic mindset. If the people involved with the product are too ashamed of it to put it before the critics, then why bother making it in the first place? It’s not like every critic will hate on it. Some actually liked Battleship!

Anyway, I’m still debating whether to see Retribution, but this latest image is making me lean more towards checking it out as we’ve got Resident Evil 2 femme fatale Ada Wong, game series mainstay Jill Valentine in her Resident Evil 5 attire complete with mind control gem and Umbrella agents Rain and One as well as mercenary Carlos. Best of all? No Alice… for at least 10 seconds. I’m sure she’ll come crashing in to save the say and free Ada.

This second photo is also intriguing as it features another of my favorite characters from the game – Leon Kennedy – apparently in the middle of an intense firefight alongside Luther, Alice and Rain. If you look closely in the back you’ll see Barry Burton’s vest so nice to see the S.T.A.R.S. member getting a bit of love in the series finally.

So since Alice doesn’t look to be saving the day in every scene I may have to check this one out tonight or tomorrow and if so, I’ll have the review up by Sunday. Course I’m just as likely to play Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare to get my zombie fix in somehow so we’ll see how the weekend goes…
