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).

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.

On its own terms, Resident Evil updates the zombie genre with an anti-corporate message while still scaring its audience and providing heart-pounding action.

Anderson ... has enough sense not to let the pace flag for a second, filling the screen with ravenous flesh-eaters, explosions and special effects.
March 19, 2002
It's completely pointless.

An already thin story boils down to surviving invaders seeking an existent anti-virus. If only there were one for this kind of movie.
March 15, 2002
It all looks and plays like a $40 million version of a game you're more likely to enjoy on a computer.
March 15, 2002
A derivative collection of horror and sci-fi cliches.
March 15, 2002
The best video-game-based movie so far.
March 15, 2002
The action in Resident Evil is like watching demons from the repressed unconscious break loose and attack the ego.
March 15, 2002
Such a bad movie that its luckiest viewers will be seated next to one of those ignorant pinheads who talk throughout the show.
March 15, 2002
A fresh hybrid of zombie horror, high-tech sci-fi and butt-kicking thrill ride.
March 15, 2002
Began life as a computer game, then morphed into a movie -- a bad one, of course.
March 15, 2002
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.
March 15, 2002
A video game cum movie that substitutes shrieking decibel levels for a coherent plot and any resemblance to originality.
March 15, 2002
The interchangeable males all resemble Freddie Prinze Jr., and Anderson's direction is no less anemic, making one yearn for an Escape/Quit button that, sadly, doesn't exist in this medium.
March 15, 2002
The most depressing thing about Resident Evil -- and there are many, trust me -- is seeing the promising star of Girlfight reduced to a direct-to-video movie clich.
March 15, 2002
Mildly grisly, assaultively noisy and tremendously boring.
