Only the first episode so far.
It alright. I mean, first episodes are always slow so it’s only uphill from here right?
The only issue I really have is that this is like the second time the president has been under threat of zombies. Granted after looking up RE 6 again that happened elsewhere so this is the only time the White House has been hit, so okay. Also while that first zombie encounter was appropriately tense, and What’s-His-Name was surprisingly not
Redshirted, him somehow judo flipping the zombie up into the chandelier pulled me from the moment. The zombie then knee-walking over to him was oddly terrifying despite the narm, especially as he unloaded an entire clip into it. And then the moment was undone when Leon shows up and one-shots the thing, because he’s got Hero status so of course he godmodes the moment.
That’s a lot to talk about for that one moment but frankly that was the standout scene of the episode. As far as expectations go, I consider Damnation to be the best RE film (live action or cgi), so if the other episodes can measure up to it then gold. On the other hand I consider Vendetta to be the nadir of RE films (live action or cgi), so hopefully it beats out that.
