Mixed Feelings
A few preliminary items:
If you are unfamiliar with the Resident Evil franchise and its characters this film will not clarify anything for you.
If you are hoping for a horror film, this is not that film. It is a pure action thriller with mild horror elements most of which are in the first 20 minutes of the film.
If you want to see something that has mindless enjoyable action and lots of stuff blowing up, this film is for you.

Vendetta is a perfect popcorn movie. Its well paced, well acted, and there's a solid mix of action and plot setting. If you were able to see it in a theatre with Dolby Atmos sound all the better because the sound design was really stellar.

That said there are a few major issues with the film. The story is very weak, there is little depth and I often found myself stifling laughter during scenes which were meant to be dramatic but came off as high camp. The uncanny valley is very much at play here and while the models look good for the most part the textures are eerily off especially glass objects and wood (which shines so brightly it seems like a thousand maids had polished it for a thousand years). The level of animation is not as good as something like Gantz: O but it still (mostly) visually pleasing and well done.

An enjoyable experience if you want to sit back, relax, and turn your brain off for a couple hours.
