      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Like other video game adapations, Resident Evil is loud, violent, formulaic, and cheesy.

      Nell Minow Common Sense Media An ultra-gory video game-to-movie disappointment. Rated: 2/5 Dec 28, 2010 Full Review Scott Foundas Variety 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). Mar 31, 2009 Full Review Derek Adams Time Out 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. Jun 24, 2006 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review If you can manage to shut off your brain, you might allow yourself to get caught up in its claustrophobic action, which has sufficient production value to keep your mind off of the ludicrous storyline. Rated: 2.5/4 Mar 8, 2024 Full Review James Croot Stuff.co.nz Zombie movies of course allow for a certain degree of poor acting – and that certainly is the case here. Rated: 2/5 Apr 4, 2022 Full Review Grant Watson Fiction Machine Here is the truth of it: film critics, generally speaking, are rather too hard on poor Paul W.S. Anderson. At his best, he is a marvellous purveyor of slickly engineered B-grade entertainment. Rated: 7/10 Apr 26, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews

      Jay H "I'm missing you already." Rated 3 out of 5 stars 06/01/24 Full Review Howard H Milla carries this film. Fan of the games and sets up the first game. Milla has the most beautiful eyes on any actress ever. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 04/23/24 Full Review Gorptholemew T 🍅 6.1/10 Watched this with WildandCrazy for a wild good time then he proceeded to show me the wonderful world of red dead redemption 2. This can only be described as peak early 2000s cheese that Paul WS Anderson is masterful at bringing to life. it may not be good but it's so damn consumable. Great movie to watch with friends for a great time. Grade B Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/16/24 Full Review Maxwell J Thoroughly enjoyed the movie. Great sci-fi plot that aged really well. CG is dated but scary. A lot of fun with some good acting and cool action. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/07/24 Full Review Eeva V Amazing zombie action movie! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/17/24 Full Review Fast R I still remember when I went into the movie premier in my theater, expecting a suspensfull movie about a special police squad getting trapped in a zombie infested mansion and slowly discovering the truth about a bio weapon experiemtn going wrong. I mean the director promised that he would stay true to the source material. I also remember leaving the cinema around 50 minutes later after Paul Anderson virtually pissed into my popcorn while constantly farting in my face. At least thats how I felt afterwards. He didn't butcher it, that would be an insult to every butcher alive. It was simply not what was written on the tin. They only used the name Resident Evil because the movie had literally nothing to do with it. Not a single canon character shows up, the story was a mess. It was nothing more than an expensive action movie with zero substance to it. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/24 Full Review Read all reviews
