Movie Series - Resident Evil (film)

Resident Evil is a 2002 horror film written and directed by Paul W.S. Anderson. The film stars Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez, Eric Mabius, and James Purefoy. It is based on the same titled series of survival horror games developed by Capcom. Borrowing elements from the video games Resident Evil and Resident Evil 2, the film follows amnesiac heroine Alice and a band of Umbrella Corporation commandos as they attempt to contain the outbreak of the T-Virus at a secret underground facility. The film was directed by Paul Anderson. The film received many negative reviews from critics but was commercially successful, grossing more than $102 million worldwide. The first in the Resident Evil film franchise, it was followed by three sequels: Apocalypse (2004), Extinction (2007) and Afterlife (2010).

1 This movie franchise was all just wrong in more ways than one. Should not have happened, especially given the source material. It just helped the trend of "let's make more video games into movies and get them wrong deliberately because we know it's what sells!" bandwagon. -- Submitted By: (Infyrin) on March 19, 2014, 4:24 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I wish they let a fanboy or someone who knows the video games inside out write the plot and/or directing the video games adaption movies. It's not just video games but in anime and comics books too. Motral Kombat sequel movie is also an example of nobody following the orginal source just add some names and had a random plot. Shao Khan and Raiden are not brothers, Shinnok is not the father of both Raiden and Shinnok, Cryax works for the Lin-Kei not Shao-Khan. Smoke doesn't shoot missles. Jade is dark-skinned not asian, Shao-Khan doesn't have an animality, etc. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on October 7, 2011, 3:56 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 It's like some sick tradition that movies based on video games must be written by someone who's never actually played them. The best example? The live-action Street Fighter movie (the 1994 flick). They got so much wrong. E. Honda comes from Japan, NOT Hawaii. DJ is not one of M. Bison's lackeys (neither is Zangief!). Dhalsim is NOT a scientist. Blanka's true identity sure as heck is NOT Guile's friend Charlie. Balrog is one of M. Bison's top warriors (NOT one of the heroes). Had they actually played the game (or at least had a Street Fighter fan as an adviser), it could have been half-decent. I've heard the Chun Li movie is worse, but since I haven't seen it, I can't say for sure. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on October 4, 2011, 7:43 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

5 The first movie was bad enough. It's obvious that Anderson never bothered to play the games. RE is about suspense, fear, tension, and mystery, not action/adventure. None of the game characters appeared in the 1st one and the sequels butcher the vg cast so badly you actually wish they hadn't appeared. The movies revolve around an overpowered Mary Sue who steals the spotlight from the main characters. She has psychic powers and is able to fist fight Nemesis. That is complete bull! These are some of the worst movies I've ever witnessed and even if it weren't RE and had no mentioning of the zombies/Umbrella/etc. they still would be very bad. -- Submitted By: (Acobjum) on October 4, 2011, 6:21 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 The first Resident Evil was okay, the second was kinda of weak. It went downhill afterwards, the last two wasn't even that exciting or anything. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on January 16, 2011, 9:02 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
