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.

If all you wanted was flashy action and special effects then go see this movie! Overall I was entertained and I did like the way they wrapped things up so we understand the bigger picture. The acting was terrible and I kind of want to blame it on the poor dialogue. On a scale of 1 - 10 I would give this movie a solid 5.

was okay.... opening was very 3d and Imax-yyy and then the rest of the movie I didn't know why it was in 3D or at the Imax.... she is great... chase the same as the other movies... nice to see some old characters back even though they have died and died again

At this point I wouldn't be surprised what they come out with next. A lot of characters from the series. That was cool. But the storyline made no sense.

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.
