Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Tony Nigro
Big scares, bigger action, and state-of-the-art visual effects help bring Resident Evil from the game console to the big screen in this frenetic and somewhat faithful adaptation. The story is set in a high-tech security compound, where dubious research has produced a virus that causes its dead hosts to walk and eat flesh. With the area under lockdown, a select group of soldiers and employees (including Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez, and Eric Mabius) must eliminate the problem -- that is, before the problem eats them. As an amnesiac operative unsure of her motivations, Jovovich revisits the Fifth Element persona with predictably sexy results. Rodriguez, as a scrappy soldier, brings new force to her trademark scowl. Their most memorable costars, which include a legion of ravenous undead and the mutant Licker, are the result of great special effects, both of the makeup and digital varieties. In his second video game adaptation, Mortal Kombat director Paul Anderson bares his scaremonger chops, balancing the gory action with tense, white-knuckle setups and old-fashioned seat-jumping fright. The DVD features audio commentary with the cast and filmmakers, various making-of featurettes, and more.

Well I really liked the movie...but I didn't give this movie the last 2 stars for 2 reasons....1:I feel,along with many others,that this movie didn't do a very good job with following the guidelines of the resident evil games or books...and 2: I think they should have thrown a few more of Umbrella's twisted,mutated,experiments at the team....hopefully the next movie will be alot more satisfying....

This movie is awesome. The best part is the laser room where they get cut in half.

The best thing about Resident Evil is that it combines a great plot, jokes, scientific mumbo-jumbo, and action. Not only does it have these things, but it also combines them well. Also, the jokes come at just the right time, and though the effects aren't too good, the sets and transition from scene to scene is.

Th Resident Evil was awesome with the content, but i have one little thing to add. Where is Jill Valentine? Where is Chris Redfield? and the rest of all the S.T.A.R.S that went in to the mansion. It was an awesome movie but why would you want to add new characters to it like to team that went in was nothing like the team from the first game. I would also like to know where the big bad Tyrant is and why some say the antidote to the Tyrant-Virus(T-Virus) is the G-Virus because if anybody ever paid any attention to the second game the G-Virus was made by William Birkin as a more potent virus the mutated human cells at a much greater rate than the T-Virus does. Not only that but the plot in the game was much more intense than what they had in the movie because there was a much bigger traitor than there was in the movie. Albert Wesker had played a really big part in the first game as captian of the S.T.A.R.S team, but was also a big part of the plot i don't see why they wouldn't add him in along with Chris and Jill heck even add in Barry, Rebecca, and Brad because they were also survivers of the Arklay Mountains Incident. I just think they should of tried to stay true to the game not change chracters and some content.

I love this movie, its my favorite.I am so glad they made the game into movies. And to any REsident EVil fan that doesn't like the movie, I just have to say how can you call yourself a fan of the game . To be a true fan you have to like the movie even if you think it is horrible.

I thought this movie was very good. who cares if it's not like the game, it's still good. yeah their special effects aren't the best, but the movie is still worth a check. yes they did put every monster out except for one, but it's still satifies me. In my opinion it's a break away from the game. It would have been better if they added more monsters, but like I said, it's still good. worth a rent

The action related to the games is the best. The story line meets perfectly with the main sorty line of the games and books. Definetly a must buy if you are a Resident Evil fan!

Resident Evil is the most sexiest,scariest and the dropdead ''Oh my god I think I'm gonna barf!'' coolest movie yet!!! I'm haapy and a little frighten at the fact Resident Evil has now been turned from a video game to a live movie!! Thanks a million!!!

The only creatures that looked scary was the licker and the zombie dogs, the zombies didn't look as real as the ones in the dead trilogy.

Resident Evil the movie is no doubt a tribute to the game series. It closely follows the game's story and even added a few twists for the veteran gamer. Zombies in this film have a new edge that old films do not give them, and since they threw in a good old Licker it makes it the most interesting film-of-a-game to date. I was surprised that they missed out a few vital elements that make Resident Evil what it is, which cost them a star. Overall- 'Watch it!'

When I saw this title on the shelf of the video rental store, i thought it's about time to check it out. But first, I check the back of the video case to see reviews and etc. I read the info about the movie's plot and cast. One line said 'eye-poping special effects'. So I'm thinking, this will be pretty good. The results were disapointing. And I thought The Mummy Returs had the worst special effects. The special effects looked more like claymation. Try watching Chicken Run with Downsyndrome and get drunk. The story is different from the game, along with the characters. But this does not bother me. It's the special effects and a little bit of the storyline. Now, it's time to review House of the Dead and possibly get disapointed

I gave it two stars for effects, but if you don't know the storyline, you have no idea about what's going on for the first 40 minutes of the movie. A lot of sequences were slow and not descript. If you don't know the game, DO NOT SEE THIS MOVIE.

This movie rocks my world. I am always in the mood to watch it. Finally a action flick that really kicks butt.

I have seen movies that were based of video games but resident evil has to be the best yet. I own it on DVD and the special features are great. Hopefuly they make Resident Evil 2 soon cause i wanna see what is going to happen to that guy that got his arm slpit open by the licker near the end of the movie. well i know what is going to happen to him if they make a sequal to the the movie.The graphics where awsome in this movie and if the get the same guy for the sequal that did the graphics for the first one the sequal will be just as good.

This is a thriller, sudden shock, creepy scenes, and some pretty interesting stuff, (you'll know what i'm talking about after you witness the ''laser'' scene. If you have never heard of Resident Evil, you will still enjoy this, to me it's like a crazy horror film mixed with Swordfish. But if your a Resident Evil fan, BUY THIS NOW! It has some key trats you'll compare with the series, (eg. look at the name of the train), but also other things that will have you dropping your jaw, (but I don't want to give the coolest parts awat). So either way, pick this up, it rocks. The DVD has features which make it even better than just the excellent movie.

Movie was an excellent one and had every detail perfectly fit with the storyline. Will watch over and over. Resident Evil fans, your perfect movie has arrived!
Guest More than 1 year ago
The Resident Evil movie was in my opinion excellent for one exception, the licker. Unfortunatly the licker looked as digital in the film as it did in the game. However this didn't ruin the film, the zombies looked good (if you know what I mean) and the scene in the laser room was very cool. Looking forward to the sequel.

ok let me try to stop thinking of my girlfriend milla here and concintrate on the movie. and the movie was cool. i liked the game.
Guest More than 1 year ago
Resident Evil is one of my favorite films because the storyline is great, the special effects are excellent, and the cast was phenomenal. I really loved the whole Special Ops thing. I first saw the movie 5 days ago, and I am still mad because Rain died. I don't think the sequel will be half as good without her somewhat thugish presence. Overall the movie was good, but I am VERY disguested.

this movie sucks the original video game was so much better yea it had pretty good special effects but out of it all the movie was bad
