Time Out New York

By Nick Schager
Anderson utilizes slow-motion 3-D to hyperbolic effect while again casting Jovovich as the epitome of badass sexiness.

I enjoyed this movie. It delivered

I enjoyed the movie and did not really expect anything but, fighting, a quick story, zombies, and action out of the wazoo. It fills all of my action expectations and I actually felt sorry for the...

Fun and lots of action.

Resident Evil is Awesome

This like the others in the line, is a very good movie. I was hooked from start to finish. I'm only surprised Rebecca Chambers wasn't in none of these. The fights between Alice and Ada versus the ...
