Loud, messy, senseless, pointless, and cheesy.

Milla Jovovich still deserves much of the credit for the film's short-term success.

This lamely scripted sequel based on the popular video game begins where the tense, gruesome original ended but is quite inferior.

The thing is Anderson and Witt cannot decide what to focus on.

Resident Evil: Apocalypse is utterly shameless whereas its predecessor tried to play things with a straight face.

A riveting, well-acted, above average example of the horror genre.

Just because a film is about the undead, that doesn't mean the film itself has to feel like it was made by the undead or for the undead.

Fans of the games will have fun spotting the Easter eggs on display, but precious little else. Indeed, the chief horror here is the cliffhanger promising a third instalment.

Un autre exemple navrant qui permet à une initiative déjà peu reluisante de se rapprocher un peu plus du fond du baril.

Rent an old Romero flick or hook up your Nintendo; either one will be cheaper and more satisfying.

Marks a departure from the original film in terms of structure, scope, and pacing. Considering that the original was actually watchable, this is not an entirely good thing.

RE2 is a dreary, incoherent mess of a movie, failing on almost every conceivable level.
