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.
PS: Blu-ray copy had a lot of special features, deleted scenes and extras.
So ready for more Milla and Resident Evil's 6th movie coming.
Oh boy, Raccoon City has only hours to exist before the cleansing flash of a nuclear weapon, the Zombies run amok and Alice has lives to save in what to my mind is the finest of the very successful “Resident Evil” films. Milla Jovovich returns to her role as Alice, the Umbrella corporation security officer who we now know has been experimented upon. Sienna Guilliory serves in the role of a very attractive cop in a mini skirt. Oded Fehr plays another policeman, all three of them are survivors of the man made Apocalypse. Young Sophie Vavasseur plays the young daughter of Dr. Ashford who the survivors must rescue from the soon to be wiped out city.
Iain Glen (from Game of Thrones) has a supporting role. Mike Epps also appears. Watch for Kevin McKidd (Rome) in a small role as a cowardly victim. This great cast would cause directors of lessor Zombie flick to have loud, envious stomach rumbles.
Alexander B. Witt, a Chilean native, never mind his name, directed in his first time in the big chair. He pulled it off in style and added some cool stuff, including a Zombie seen in the reflection of a police riot face mask. He also has Milla Jovovich crash through a stained glass window on a motorcycle, jump off in a back flip then shoot the gas tank to blow up an especially nasty, bio-weapon Zombie. That is just way cool. In another cool bit Alice rigs up with ropes and runs down a sky scraper. The level of filming, sound and special effects all reach the best levels.
Paul W.S. Anderson wrote the screenplay. Anderson has a long career as both a director-”Mortal Kombat”, “Resident Evil” (the first in the series), the exceptional “Event Horizon” and the major studio film “Pompeii” in 2014.Read more ›
The film continues the story of the 2002 film, but this time it takes place in Raccoon City. Alice meets Jill, Carlos, and a few other survivors. Most of the citizens of Raccoon City have been turned into zombies from the T-Virus plague, and the main characters are being followed by Nemesis. Along the way, they have to fight against the zombies, lickers, and Nemesis himself.
Resident Evil: Apocalypse is a fun action-horror film. I love it.

I love the Resident Evil franchise. This one ranks 4 of the 5 for me, though. The other ones are just too good. That said, though, this one is still enjoyable. Read morePublished 5 days ago by Meaty
