Resident Evil Revelations opens with Jade discussing how they might implement their own version of mind control. We then see a huge crocodile that appears to be under the survivors control.
We then jump back to the older timeline as Evelyn sells Bert on a new project.
At the same time Jade is trying to convince Billie that they make a run for it. Jade distracts their guard by talking about their dog as Billie seems to struggle with staying in control. They flee but Billie is caught. We then come back to the current timeline. The horde that Jade called down is ravaging the camp.
Jade uses the chaos to escape while her friends on the boat sail away. This leads to one of the best action sequences in the show as Billie calls up the gun drones and they go to town on the horde.
Jade just barely makes it to the ship. Once on board she convinces the captain to “push the button” to release their crocodile secret weapon they’ve been keeping hidden.
Because things were getting good, the writers of course picked this moment to jump back to the past timeline. So annoying. It really destroys the viewers ability to enjoy the show.
When we do cut back to the current time we see Billie killing basically everyone with her drones – just before the massive crocodile comes ashore to ruin her day. We are treated to another flashback before coming back to Billie fleeing the massive croc. Billie uses a grenade to distract the monster which points it back out to sea.
The next fifteen minutes is a mixture of the past and the present. The present sees Jade’s daughter almost get eaten by the croc, but Jade programmed it not to hurt her. This leads to the final confrontation between Jade and Billie. They must have thought they were getting a season 2 as the last few minutes of the final episode leaves us on a cliffhanger. Jade has been shot and Jade’s daughter has been taken by Billie. Wounded, Jade stands up to watch her daughter disappear in a helicopter.
Resident Evil Revelations has the same issues as the rest of the series. There are too many plot lines that jump back and forth between the past and the present. Just as you are getting into the action not only does the scene change, but the timeline does as well.
While Resident Evil Revelations started strong, it just couldn’t hold the pace for the whole episode. There were some good action sequences, though, earning Resident Evil Revelations a 50/100, making it perfect for a rainy day.
The ending sucked. Especially when you consider there won’t be a season 2. The Resident Evil series could have been awesome. Unfortunately the writers and directors tried to squeeze too much into eight episodes.
