Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness (2021) Blu-ray Review
The action is plentiful, with intense zombie attacks, narrow escapes, gunfire and explosions galore. Some of the horror scenes are pretty graphic and shocking, but if you’re a fan of these types of movies, then this one is right along the lines of what anyone should expect.
A conspiracy involving a zombie outbreak and the intention to keep it hidden is undermined when a secret service agent gets involved and threatens to expose it.
A zombie outbreak happens in a country called Panemstan during a US military operation, and when only one US soldier named Jason (voiced by Ray Chase) survives, this kick starts a conspiracy that reaches as far as the White House. When secret service agent Leon S. Kennedy (Nick Apostoides) – a hero of the Raccoon City outbreak – saves the President from a zombie attack at the White House, he investigates what the heck is going on, which puts him on the same path as another investigator named Claire Redfield (Stephanie Panisello) who knows that something sinister is going on since the Panemstan outbreak. When Jason reveals himself to be not only working against Leon and Claire but also infected with the zombie virus that will eventually turn him into a hulking mutant, the race is on for Leon and Claire to save the world before things get out of control.
A four-part CGI-animated series that has been collected into a movie format, Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness feels like a side story in the grander scheme of all things Resident Evil. Its deadpan serious approach is sometimes exhausting, but the impressive looking photo realistic animation is never not convincing. The action is plentiful, with intense zombie attacks, narrow escapes, gunfire and explosions galore. Some of the horror scenes are pretty graphic and shocking, but if you’re a fan of these types of movies, then this one is right along the lines of what anyone should expect. From director Eiichiro Hasumi.
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness recently hit Blu-ray, and it collects all four episodes into a one-movie format, and there’s a 30-minute “Making-of” special feature on the disc as well.
