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.
The really good thing about this movie is that it does not just focus on mindless zombies. In fact, after the first half of the movie, the zombies have a minimal role. The movie shifts its focus onto the Nemesis project, or Matt from the first movie. And the climatic fight between him and Alice was really cool with Toronto's old city hall as the backdrop. Torontonians will recognize familiar locations throughout the movie and you can even catch a glimpse of the CN Tower if you look closely.
On the downside, the movie does little to explain a lot of things that happen and leaves the viewer to fill in the blanks. For instance, we never know why Alice comes crashing through the stained glass window or how she knows what is on the other side. If the Nemesis creature could be mind controlled, then why wasn't Alice. And why were zombies coming out of the ground in the graveyard.
Overall, this is an awesome movie. Great action and great fighting. And an interesting ending that plants the seed for a 3rd movie... I'm thinking about seeing this one again!
Out of the movies released to date(five so far with the sixth and final announced), RE: Apocalypse is my favorite. Not only did Writer/Producer Paul W.S. Anderson learn from his successful first installment, but was able to up the ante in a way that worked. In addition to being able to intensify the action from the first movie, I felt he maintained a story line that allowed characters to develop - which is something that has been virtually non-existent in RE: Afterlife and Retribution. With only a couple of exceptions, such as the cemetery scene (How did the T-Virus get to the interned corpses to infect them?), I enjoyed seeing the various responses to the outbreak by the main characters i.e. losing a close friend, being abandoned by your employers, dealing with overwhelming number of the undead and so on. There was more at stake than just a small elite team of soldiers in this film, it was a chance to stop the T-Virus before it infected the global population.
Milla Jovovich establishes herself in a rather elite company of female actresses (Angelina Jolie, Kate Beckinsale and Michelle Yeoh to name a few more) who can pull off the believable action heroine. The supporting cast of Oded Fehr and Sienna Guillory for action with Mike Epps for comic relief worked for me. Thomas Kretschmann did a good job as the Umbrella man put in charge of containing the outbreak that turns people in zombies - yet using the situation as a the prefect test for making sure various top secret projects of the corporation, such as Project ALICE are feasible and potentially profitable.Read more ›
