Resident Evil: Apocalypse Reviews
Now for the cons. The main characters, or really anyone in the movie, was flat, one dimensional, and boring. Nothing interesting, they just have one characteristic, be it "badass" "comic relief" or "My daughter", no motivations shown, not really, not even the will to survive is shown well enough. The technical aspects of things aren't all that good either (I mean, metal detectors to check if people are infected? What?) the story doesn't know what kind of rules for a zombie apocalypse they want to have, in the first movie they establish that someone needs to be bitten, scratched, smell, drink, eat, whatever, to become infected, and yet there's a scene in a cemetery where the dead come to life? When were they infected? Is it in the earth? Explain please. And don't even get me started on costumes, the first movie was somewhat believable (except for Alice) but on this one? Is that really what you take to work Valentine? They also establish (and show once again, and reuse) that animals can also be turned, so why oh why were there no pets on the streets? No cats, dogs that aren't the ones already seen the previous movie, anything really. Can you imagine how terrifying (if done right) it'd be to be hunted by a hamster? On the sound department it's also lacking the amazing soundtrack of the first movie. Far more focused on subpar action sequences than in the horror, plot, storyline, character development, I could go on, really. Thought the ending was pretty good until they completely ruined it for me with the unnecessary death at the end, you know the one, it just shows me the next movie is going to be even more shit.
