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.
The Deluxe Edition of Resident Evil retains the major features from the original DVD and adds some new ones. Of primary interest is the alternate ending, which has action and style (and was never finished), but far less emotional punch than the one that was used in the film. There's a new commentary track by writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson and visual effects supervisor Richard Yuricich (which lags a bit when there are no on-screen effects to discuss); new featurettes on storyboarding and the film's videogame roots; and six visual-effects featurettes that focus on such elements as the laser and the zombie dogs. Retained from the original DVD are three featurettes and the raucous commentary track by Anderson, producer Jeremy Bolt, and actors Milla Jovovich and Michelle Rodriguez. Dropped are the making-of featurette, the zombie makeup test, and the Train music video. The Dolby 5.1 sound remains exciting and immersive, but DTS devotees will have to stick with the Superbit edition. --David Horiuchi

Anyway, while this has several language options, everything defaults to English (that may be my PS3, not sure to be honest).
The 3D in this is as good as the previous RE movies, which I expected. Everything worked fine on PS3, it's not regionally coded.
This is a sci-fi/horror/action movie, so I can't understand the people whining about continuity and story-line, you're not watching the right genre. This is mindless entertainment, violent, bloody, Milla...
As far as I can tell, the only reason to get this over the US version is the 3D. I haven't played the standard BR or watched the extra content.
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.
I admit I prefer the film series to the video games and the animated films so the fact the character Alice is purely invented for the movie does not bother me. I do watch the Extras and Special features on discs, especially deleted/extended scenes. For RE: Apocalypse I thought the extent and subject matter of Special Features was very good, such learning about the idea to give each character their own specific type of firearms so you identify it with him or her and watching how various stunts were designed and executed in the six-part 'Making of' documentary.
I consider this to be the best adaptation of a game to a movie ever. I always hope that another game will make the jump to screen effectively, but this is the only one that I feel has met that mark. Still it is a game to movie, so is not for everyone.
