In 2006, American federal agent Leon S. Kennedy (NICK APOSTOLIDES) is invited to the White House to investigate a hacking incident. During the investigation, he encounters a horde of zombies in a mysterious attack against the President. Meanwhile, Terrasave staff member Claire Redfield (STEPHANIE PANISELLO) uncovers a strange image drawn by a young boy in a country she visited. Haunted by this drawing, which appears to be a victim of a viral infection, Claire starts her own investigation. Claire visits the White House and has a chance reunion with Leon. Together, Leon and Claire investigate the connection between the White House attack and the strange drawing, uncovering a threat that will shake the nation to its very core.



This release comes with a semi-glossy slip cover.

The only bonus is The Making of Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness (34:59), while lengthy behind-the-scenes featurette that includes interviews with the filmmakers and actors.

VIDEO – 4½/5, AUDIO – 4¼/5

Sony releases Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness onto Blu-ray presented with a 1.85 widescreen aspect ratio and 1080p high-definition transfer. For the most part the picture here looks good, but I would expect that from top-notch CGI animation which does comes across in HD with sharp detail and well balanced colors. Of course the video is clean, free of aliasing, artifacts or any other flaws.

The included DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track is satisfactory enough providing clear dialogue mainly from the center channel and respectable depth for the action-horror centric scenes. Nothing amazing nor will it give your surround system much of a workout but all in all sounds fine.
