Wait. There are novels based on the movies?
And what the hell is Prison Break? Who is this pansy ass actor that is to play the dashing, heroic, boulder-punching macho man otherwise known as Chris Redfield?
Eh, doesn't matter anyway, since the lame ass Milla character is still there. "Alice" will probably end up killing Wesker while also uppercutting SIX boulders and 20 Nemesises (Nemesi?).
Fuck these films. I still feel robbed having seen Apocalypse, and that was for free on cable.
He doesn't look old enough to play Chris. It would have been ok if he looked older than the girl who plays Claire, but he looks the same age, maybe even younger... You know who I'd have liked to see play Chris?
Have I burnt your eyes?
But in all seriousness, I think he looks a fair bit like Chris in RE5 except for the not having blue eyes thing. There really is reason to my rhyme!
The novel also gave Alice feelings, as she Spoiler:
Alice with emotions!? NO WAY.
I really hope they bring Jill back too. After the story with her in the novels, they can actually do something great.
Only wishful thinking, though.
Ironically, the authour of the books really does try to improve what they're given try to make them as good as possible. In the first and third book they include a good chunk of additional storyline that complements the small amount you get in the story. Amusingly, they don't really try in the second one...just repeats the end of ther first book and launches into the story. I guess the authour watched it and decided you can only polish a turd so much. And there was no mention of the T-Virus killing of all plant life in the books, either. All told they generaly improve the movies to a point where I read them and didn't feel the absoloute need to rip each page out as I read and eat it, but I did anyway. It's the princible.
Anyone else thinks that Chris will be Alices new love interest?
i always thought matt mullins was a dead ringer for chris; there was this one other picture that looked like chris, i thought they modeled him after mullins for a second there
no comment on his acting though...
I think Justin bruening from knight rider2k8 would fit better on a chris redfield role with all this military training etc..
He looks like chris in re5.

I guarantee you that if Wesker has a significant role in the new film, the final battle will be Alice vs. Wesker, as opposed to Chris vs. Wesker (the way it should be). The film will culminate in an X-Men-style battle between the two superpower-infused characters with Milla "I can't act worth a shit but got this role because I'm fucking the director" Jovovich killing Wesker and everyone rejoicing, while another antagonist makes an appearance in the final scene, hinting at yet another drudging sequel. What character haven't they butchered yet? James Marcus? Is it even possible to butcher his character?!
I actually semi-enjoyed the original Resident Evil film, since Anderson didn't really butcher any of the games' character's roles. But after that the movies became ridiculous. I will admit that the actress who portrayed Jill in the second film was good, although her character was taken completely out of context. I have yet to see Extinction, and it really isn't high on my "to do" list.
Also, kudos to those who think David Boreanaz should portray Chris (they look so similar!), as opposed to the girly-looking guy that will play him.
