Infinite Darkness is a must-have watch
If you are a fan of action filled with zombies, you will certainly be aware of the resident Evil franchise.
Well, in all fairness, it’s not exactly that easy to keep up with the series as the original Japanese horror video game series created by Capcom has been converted into a live-action movie franchise as well as TV series. . But the more the merrier, right?
It looks like Netflix is experiencing our old, eternal habit of always wanting more, and well, the streaming platform has delivered.
He just released the first season of the Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness CGI animated series, and here are five reasons why you should definitely give it a frenzy.
1. A zombie civil war
If you’ve played the games, the first season of Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness is located somewhere between Resident Evil 4 and Resident evil 5. The series sees the return of protagonists Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield, who once again join forces to investigate the consequences of a civil war in Penamstan, a fictional country in the Middle East, which is very similar to the city of Racoon plagued by zombies. previous installments, is a testing ground for the zombie creating the T-virus.
And after? Well, we see Special Forces soldiers become even deadlier after they transform into scary blood-sucking, brain-eating zombies.
2. Zombies in the American White House
The series begins with the White House in the United States, the only institution guarded by the fucking Secret Service, infiltrated by zombies. As the US president is kept under tight security and escorted, we see how the heroes fighting the zombies of the resident Evil franchise, spread out in the dark and eerie corridors of the Soulless White House to kill the living dead and come out alive.
3. The graphics are crazy
Say whatever you like after watching the show, but there’s a thing you can’t deny about it. It has absolutely stunning CGI animation that makes the characters and scenes, and even buildings like the US White House, look absolutely realistic.
I’m pretty sure if you took a closer look you might even start counting strands of a character’s hair. (I know, weird, right? But you still can.)
It might not be the best resident Evil action piece out there for diehard fans, however, it certainly promises to be a 100 percent feast for the eyes.
4. Mysterious characters
Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness bring back some old characters with some new ones. One thing remains in common with almost everyone. They have a story and are all fighting demons from their past.
Whether it’s the Civil War soldiers or Leon and Claire themselves, the events of the zombie apocalypse in Racoon City as well as that of Penamstan, give each character a mysterious vibe, which certainly adds more meaning to the plot.
5. It’s a mini-series with only four episodes
That’s right! While I’m not entirely happy that the series is so short, there are only four episodes in the first season and each episode is no longer than 30 minutes. This makes it very easy to watch, especially if one just wants to browse the Zombie-anime genre.
That said, I still wish the show had dived more into the plot to make it more interesting, and maybe adding more episodes to the first season could have helped make that happen. However, for now, you can be happy that this is just a sign of things to come, and I can’t wait for next season to arrive to make the plot thicker, and for the resident Evil series to become even more captivating!
