Film is officially release today!

(update)

Here are all the reviews(so far)...

Quote:
Linda Barnard, Toronto Star: 1 1/2 (of 4)
"It's all the same blah-blah carnage, with 3D effects hurling blood, blades and body parts into the audience amid a non-stop barrage of gunfire and explosions."

Adam Litovitz, Toronto Globe & Mail: 1 1/2 (of 4)
"A few striking images keep our attention... [but] this material is de rigeur for sci-fi thrillers... the film's title promises payback, without offering ample compensation."

Quote:
Clark Collis, Entertainment Weekly: GOOD
"...lunatically haphazard... Why did Umbrella capture Alice in the first place?... It's tempting to say that W.S. Anderson is not really in the 'Why?'-answering business."

Quote:
Andrew Dowler, Toronto Now: EXCELLENT
"The action starts right away and doesn't let up till the end. The scope is epic, and the flawless 3-D is devoted to flinging stuff in your eye as often as possible."

Quote:
Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News: POOR
"...thuddingly awful.... layered with muddy-looking, unnecessary and cash-grabbing 3-D, it gives even more of a headache than it had to.... lazy and hyperbolic."

Quote:
Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times: WEAK
"Jovovich's game face is admirable... But it can't be easy when all around her are line readings that recall the glory days of baroquely dull foreign-movie dubbing." http://www.latimes.com/entertainment...,3289929.story
Quote:
Roger Moore, Chicago Tribune: POOR
"Jovovich can act, though you'd never know it... it's a flat performance... The violence in 'Retribution' is impersonal, gory and non-stop." http://www.chicagotribune.com/site/n...,1925300.story

Quote:
Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice: FAIR
"...it's impossible to call any movie whose finale incorporates nuclear submarines and a zombie feeding frenzy in arctic waters less than a triumph of the human spirit."
