Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004, U.S.)

resevil2Dear Alice, how you’ve changed! After waking up in a hospital a-la 28 Days Later, our hero Alice, played by Milla Jovovich, discovers the undead have overwhelmed Raccoon City, with only small pockets of uninfected still surviving, led by Jill Valentine, another femme fatal Zombie killer, played by Sienna Guillory. To make matters worse, they are all trapped, sealed off in the city by the Umbrella Corporation. Of course the Umbrella Corporation takes this as an opportunity to play with their new deadly experiment. Soon, time begins running out as the clock ticks down before the city is sanitized.

This movie was decent enough, but it could have been so much better. Some of the scenes were fairly hokey, as if instead of letting us figure out something was cool, the film makers needed to exaggerate the action, stunt, comment, or whatever to get the point across. Otherwise, it’s your typical higher budget action film doing a commendable job of carrying on the Resident Evil franchise, and doing a good job at setting it up for another sequel.

  1. I like this one. The only one that I kind of disliked was part 3. Overall all 4 films were great. Action is good, Zombies is good. The suspense is good. The acting was great. I’m glad all 4 films came out in theaters.
