When Paul W.S Anderson couldn't direct the sequel due to directing Alien vs. Predator, although he's still the screenwriter and producer of it, a newcomer name Alexander Witt is the choice for Resident Evil Apocalypse which is his film debut, and for my surprise, it's actually better than the first movie, although not that much. The action scenes are exciting to watch, although it would've been more exciting if I actually care about the characters at all. The acting is decent which is better than the first one, although Oded Fehr acted wooden. I was surprised that Mike Epps was in this, and when the first movie had humor that was not that funny, this guy was actually funny and was the funniest part of the movie. The effects are better to look at and I also like the design of Nemesis that's not CGI at all but more practical, making it look like it's actually there. The plot is sadly weaker than the first film and it felt more like an excuse to keep the series going. There's jumpscares in this also which still didn't get me scared, and the villain is so forgettable that when I was done with the film, I didn't remember a single thing about this character. So while it's not nearly as cheesy as Resident Evil and is actually decent for an action film, it's still a dumb movie that I honestly forgot that I was even watching a Resident Evil adaptation, but it's a lot of fun to watch.
