First look: Resident Evil: Degeneration

Resident Evil: Degeneration is an all CG film set for a straight-to-DVD release in Japan sometime in 2008. Details of the film’s contents remain unknown beyond the scant bits of information derivable from these screens. For starters, the film is apparently set seven years after the destruction of Raccoon City in 1998. And it appears to feature two of the series’ most popular characters, Claire Redfield and Leon S Kennedy.

But wait — during 2004, the time Resident Evil 4 took place, wasn’t Leon a special agent for the President? If so, why is it that in this movie he’s dressed in his old Raccoon Police Department jumpsuit? Did Leon have another tryst with zombie genocide in or around Raccoon City one year after being hired, trained, and sent overseas to wage bloody destruction upon scores of brainwashed Spaniards?

Potential continuity errors aside, I’m hoping this film is a good one. I know it can’t be worse than Resident Evil‘s previously released forgettable foray into CG movie land.
