The movie is Dawn of the Dead crossed with John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars, with zombies not as ghoulish as the first and trains not as big as the second.
| Original Score: 1/4
| Original Score: 2/5
An ultra-gory video game-to-movie disappointment.
When the dead come back to life and start chewing on the living it all comes flooding back. These heroes should have remembered "Dawn of the Dead"
| Original Score: 2/4
It's completely pointless.
One of the better shoot 'em up games in computing history comes to the big screen in a way that is not only near unrecognisable, but also one of the most disappointing adaptations of a game ever.
It is based on a video game, and as such, it exists merely to go from one life-or-death scenario to the next.
| Original Score: D
A derivative collection of horror and sci-fi cliches.
Just think that you could have sacrificed ten quarters to play Resident Evil the video game instead of coughing up ten bucks to witness the monotonous Resident Evil the movie.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
[There's] nothing scary here except for some awful acting and lame special effects.
| Original Score: 1/5
A Z grade bit of fodder for the pre-teen sector...
Entertainment in dire need of its own self-assurance.
| Original Score: C
Its characters are thinner than cardboard -- or even comic-book paper.
Hats off, however, to the production team for the set designs and one very imaginative death-by-laser sequence. The rest is a derivative, tedious mess.
It's been 13 months and 295 preview screenings since I last walked out on a movie, but Resident Evil really earned my indignant, preemptive departure.
| Original Score: 0/4
Resident Evil is what comes from taking John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars and eliminating the beheadings. In other words, about as bad a film you're likely to see all year.
| Original Score: 0.5/4
*Yawn.* Here's another ridley- scott- alien movie.
lacks a sense of fun
| Original Score: C-
Loud, grisly, action-packed and profoundly un-scary.
I probably should stay away from any movie with a video game as its source.
