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.

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"

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.

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.

[There's] nothing scary here except for some awful acting and lame special effects.

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

Entertainment in dire need of its own self-assurance.

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.

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.

Loud, grisly, action-packed and profoundly un-scary.

I probably should stay away from any movie with a video game as its source.
