proves it's not necessarily 'game over' for the video-game movie genre.
| Original Score: 7/10
By-the-numbers gory horror flick -- not for kids.
| Original Score: 2/5
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.
Another underwhelming entry to another underwhelming franchise.
| Original Score: 1/4
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.
| Original Score: B-
A riveting, well-acted, above average example of the horror genre.
| Original Score: 3/4
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.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Nothing short of pathetic.
| Original Score: 0.5/4
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.
| Original Score: 1/5
The heart plummets at the prospects for a follow-up.
Un autre exemple navrant qui permet à une initiative déjà peu reluisante de se rapprocher un peu plus du fond du baril.
| Original Score: 2/10
There are times when the film, just like the original, shows that it could be something more
| Original Score: 5/10
Rent an old Romero flick or hook up your Nintendo; either one will be cheaper and more satisfying.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
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.
| Original Score: 3/10
An awful sequel to an awful film.
RE2 is a dreary, incoherent mess of a movie, failing on almost every conceivable level.
[A film for] pre-brain Playstation 11-year-old American males ...
