Customer Reviews

They're both good, solid movies with good suspense and great action and special effects.
hi
If you liked the first movie or the games, you will probably like this one as it is not just a rehashing of previous stories.

The Umbrella Corporation has reopened the Hive and the T-Virus has escaped into the Raccoon City above it.

I feel that both of these films are somewhat underrated. They were hurt by critics who sort of missed the point and by video gamers who expected them to be carbon-copies of the games. They are, simply, very good zombie movies - lots of campy fun, great action, and even some genuine scares. They're just fun to watch, and one of the big reasons for that is Milla - who looks great and is just perfect for this role, simultaneously strong and vulnerable. (An earlier review said these were among her first films - in fact, she has been acting since 1991, when she famously appeared nude at age 14 in "Return to the Blue Lagoon". She is a veteran actress with nearly 20 films to her credit.)

It is true that these films don't do much that's new with the genre - if that's what you're looking for, see "28 Days Later" instead. But the Resident Evil films do the traditional zombie genre as well as any film has recently, with great special effects (these were big-budget films), good acting and a lot of action.

Probably the best in the series in my opinion. I felt they did good with this movie in terms of special effects and how it was shot.Good story-line, characters and action. It was non-stop fun from the beginning.
PS: Blu-ray copy had a lot of special features, deleted scenes and extras.

This is not a horror movie. This film does not compare well with horror movies. This is an action movie with zombies. It compares very well with other action movies. Starting where Resident Evil ended, the bullets start flying and the zombies start chomping immediately (do watch RE before this one). Although the script is hardly award winning, the movie delivers much more than you would reasonably expect from a video game based zombie movie. The actors are capable enough, and even if you find them stiff and generic, it's okay - most of them don't survive very long. Sadly, the comedy relief guy isn't funny at all and he does survive the whole movie. Also, the martial arts and special effects are good overall (except for the CGI Dobermans which are awful). Somehow the film avoids being predictable and sets up the last part of the trilogy nicely. Whether or not you've played the video game (I haven't), Resident Evil: Apocalypse is sure to satisfy cravings for a fast-paced action movie with sexy, gun-toting, butt-kicking babes if you can forgive a few rather forced script elements (like main characters strolling through a graveyard totally oblivious to the risk this involves during a zombie uprising!)

At the end of the first movie we were left with a bit of a cliff hanger. In this one we see just how the cliff hanger came about and how it is resolved. Racoon City has been ravaged by the T-Virus and its ability to animate dead tissue. The city has been walled off from the rest of the world by the Umbrella Corporation.

Umbrella's interest in the city is varied. Can the city be reclaimed? Can the virus be contained? But it also provides a chance for proper field testing of other projects, particularly Project Nemesis. Through all of this we follow a handful of survivors as they try to stay alive long enough to find a way out of the city. In the background a third party is pulling stings for his own benefit to locate his daughter who was left behind in the city.

The film is full of action and fighting. There is less suspense than in the first and most of the monsters and hazards are straight from the first movie. But it is the characters and what has been done to them, and how they handle it, that provides the real story in this film. Needless to say there is another cliffhanger/opening at the end to pave the way for a third movie. Most of the action happens at night so the sets are dark. The action is fast and between the lighting and the speed, the fight scenes are often uncomprehendable.

If you liked the first movie or the games, you will probably like this one as it is not just a rehashing of previous stories.

I liked the first "Resident Evil" better. I liked the way it opened and the entire idea of people having to go back into the Hive to find out what happened and look for survivors. There is something to be said for the inherent tension in having to keep going forward when you should be turning around and getting the hell out of Dodge as quick as possible. "Resident Evil: Apocalypse" is about the getting the hell out of Dodge, or in this case Raccoon City, but there is a major problem in terms of the as quick as possible part, especially given that the city is about to be nuked.

The Umbrella Corporation decided to reopen the Hive, which allows the T-virus to escape and turn the inhabitants of Raccoon City into zombies. I might be slow when it comes to modern science, but I really fail to see the practical applications or economic potential of the T-virus given that it is not really regeneration human cells. Now the nuke option is making a lot of sense, which is bad news for Alice (Milla Jovovich), the genetically created ultimate fighting machine, who is trying to lead a group of survivors through the zombies to safety. But since this movie is based on a video game, things get worse. The Umbrella Corporation sends Nemesis, a killing machine that may or may not be a genetically mutated version of Alice's boyfriend, Matt, from the previous film. Apparently shooting people before nuking them is in the best interest of the corporation. Go figure.

Alice at least has some decent allies this time around, with Jill Valentine (Sienna Guillory), a demoted cop who is pretty good given that she has no genetic enhancements, and Carlos Olivera (Oded Fehr), who leads what is left of an elite tactical team.
