Resident Evil is a very complex series, in terms of the video game. Its a very Japanese style story that is not easily adapted for American audiences, especially when turning it into a movie.
From day one these movies have been awful adaptations of a loved video game series and this film is no different,
Uninspired action, terrible special effects, plot holes left and right, & characters from the video game that should recognize each other are given stupid back stories and just dropped in for cameo-sake.
Paul W.S. Anderson needs to drop the Resident Evil series from his tight grip and never go back. Allow this movie to sit for a few years before some talented writer who grew up playing these games, writes a fantastic script based off the games.
Also, Mila Jovovich is terrible and needs to stop acting as well. It seems like the only movies she gets roles in anymore are the ones her husband makes anyway.

Where shall I begin my fellow movie lovers? I saw this movie at its opening show since I am a big fan of Resident Evil movies. This movie has killed all the previous Resident Evil movies for not being better but being the worst Resident Evil movie ever and also the worst movie Milla Jovovich has ever been a part of. What a shame ! For any Resident Evil fan this movie is like a spit on the face. Basically this movie looks like it has been rushed and made in a week or even less because the story is awful, but wait I take my word back because there is no story in this one at all. The story, plot, and script do not exist in this movie. I basically do not even call this a movie because it does not have the required elements that a movie must have. I seriously recommend any one (Even if you are not a Resident Evil Fan) to not see this movie why is that, it's because what you have already seen in the trailers for this movie that's all the action there is.

I haven't seen the other movies in the series, but the plot is absurd, the characters are shallow and the dialogue is extremely predictable. (I say this as somebody who loves good sci-fi and has played computer games for almost 30 years). I don't understand how a good actress can waste her career on something like this.

The movie at times looked like a video game and made a number of references to characters in the game. Also, the action is great.
The plot and dialog are pretty much non-existant.
