This routine video-game spinoff borrows heavily from James Cameron action flicks and George Romero zombie epics but doesn't do much else.

This adaptation captures the spirit of the video games and with its fun, anything can happen mindset and tons of over the top violence, 'Resident Evil' proves there may be a future for video game movies yet.

A Z grade bit of fodder for the pre-teen sector...

Despite a promising setup, pic never really goes anywhere, instead immersing viewers in a kinetic onslaught of flesh (namely, that of Milla Jovovich) and flesh-eaters (most of the rest of the cast).

This video-game-to-celluloid adaptation has a clammy, nightmarish glaze and tightly coiled sense of tension.

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.

Game fans will be disappointed. Zombie fans will be disappointed. Paul Anderson's fan will be disappointed.

The only real "cerebral" activity that should take place in a zombie movie is the consumption of brains by the heretofore mentioned zombies themselves.

...The latest proof that trying to adapt a film from a video game is a bad idea.

Milla Jovovich and Michelle Rodriguez kick zombie butt in this faithful, action-packed adaptation of the popular survival horror video game.

I'll bet the video game is a lot more fun than the film.
