Editorial Reviews

Something rotten is brewing beneath the industrial mecca known as Raccoon City. Unknown to its millions of residents, a huge underground bioengineering facility known as The Hive has accidentally unleashed the deadly and mutating T-virus, killing all of its employees. To contain the leak, the governing supercomputer, Red Queen, has sealed all entrances and exits. Now a team of highly-trained super commandos including Rain (Michelle Rodriguez - The Fast and the Furious, Girlfight), Alice (MillaJovovich - The Fifth Element) and Matt (Eric Mabius - Cruel Intentions) must race to penetrate The Hive in order to isolate the T-virus before it overwhelms humanity. To do so, they must get past theRed Queen's deadly defenses, face the flesh-eating undead employees, fight killer mutant dogs and battle The Licker, a genetically mutated savage beast whose strength increases with each of its slainvictims.

This was a taut, chilling, and surprisingly effective zombie kill fest. The opening with the lethal lock-down of the complex by the super-computer is at once coldly methodical, and deadly. Milla as the heroine has transformed markedly since her Fifth Element days, and does an admirable job as the anesthesia victim. This film really moves along at a great pace, the Marylyn Manson soundtrack kicks it up a notch along w/ the action sequences. A deadly virus is released in an underground research complex, the host computer kills all the scientists rather than risk external exposure of the virus. A security detail is dispatched to ascertain what went wrong, but are themselves targeted by the newly animated dead. One of the better of its breed to be sure, very polished and gritty at the same time. It works, recommended.

I must say, I certainly didn't have high hopes for this movie. I've been a fan of the video game series since the first game was released back in the spring of 1996. I can't remember when the movie was announced, but it was a very long time ago. I want to say 1998, not long after Resident Evil 2 was released. I think I was a little optimistic at the news, but months and months went by with no more word of the movie actually being made, just rumors that George Romero was possibly being brought on to direct, and then that he wasn't. Finally, the first details and publicity photos emerged. It looked and sounded... well, pretty bad. It was revealed that the plot revolved around an "evil computer". This wasn't good news, since NONE of the games involve such. It sounded like it was going to be yet another weak video game cash-in; "Ah, who cares what's in the games, that stuff won't work in a movie. We'll start from scratch, as long as there's zombies in it, those mindless, idiot gamers will be happy." I pretty much lost interest in it. But then couple of months ago I saw the trailers, and my curiosity was once again piqued. It looked like it might actually not [be that horribly bad]. (edited by Amazon)

After finally seeing it tonight, I'm happy to say that this movie did a damn good job of invoking the feel and atmosphere of the RE games. It isn't 100% dead-on, it took a few liberties... but they were never really a detriment. It stands up to the games very well, and it's a good popcorn/horror flick in its own right. There were a few moments when I was truly HORRIFIED. I really don't think it's necessary to have played the games to enjoy this movie, not at all. But if you have played them, you'll enjoy it all the more so. No, it isn't the Greatest Film of the Year. It's just a fun, bloody, action/horror movie.

It was really funny when this DVD came out because it is titled "Resident Evil: DELUXE EDITION" and in actuality there are more special features on the original release. The only thing one could label "Deluxe" about this edition is that it has a small about a 2 minute clip from Resident Evil 2.
So, if you are looking to buy Resident Evil, then its a fun movie. But if your looking for "deluxe special features", then this is most definately the wrong place.

I would rate the video game movies like this:
1- Resident Evil
2- Mortal Kombat
3- Final Fantasy
4- Tomb Raider
5- Mortal Kombat: Anilation
6- Double Dragon
7- Street Fighter
The history of video game movies has been rocky, but this one restores my faith in the genre. I saw it twice in the theatre, and I will be watching it a infinite amount of times on DVD. Something I did not like about it was the lack of gore. That is something Resident Evil [the game] had been known for. But it did not disappoint me as much as other games to movie adaptations. It starts out with a fatal mistake of a virus being unleashed in a place called The Hive. A computer then kills everyone in the building. A elite team of soldiers has been sent to clean up the mess. It's ending leaves it wide open for a sequel, which I really REALLY want to see. Mill Jovovich gives a great performance in the movie along with the other actors. This is a good movie and you will most likely enjoy it.

"Resident Evil" starts off with a slam-bang double-opening - inside an ultra high-tech underground research-and-development facility, something goes terribly wrong and a gas escapes as the facility's emergency system kicks in, locking down the building and resulting in the apparant deaths of hundreds of employees; at about the same time, above ground, a young woman named Alice (Milla Jovovich) wakes up inside a grand mansion with no memory of who she is, only minutes before the place is stormed by a group of well-armed commandoes. Thus begins the successful movie adaptation of the "Resident Evil" series of video games.

With "Resident Evil", it was far from a given that it could make such a good transition into a movie, to me at least. It's not like "Silent Hill" (which has also generated an excellent movie) or "Fatal Frame" (which I'm still waiting for the movie version of), both of which had lots of identifiable movie potential from the beginning. The "Resident Evil" games are a bit different, almost nonstop action, most of them not as developed along character or story purposes (these aspects have begun growing in some of the more recent Resident games). They needed to fill in some areas for the movie to be as good as the games. Most of the games pit S.T.A.R. (a highly trained law enforcement organization) agents against hordes of ravenous zombies, occasionally teaming the S.T.A.R. agents with other characters. It's made a lot of great games, but could it move into just as great a movie? One thing they did was split the focus up among more characters of different backgrounds - you've got the S.T.A.R.
