Review and Opinions

Biohazard 4D: Executer is a great start for Resident Evil’s CGI journey. The movie doesn’t last longer than 20 minutes, and its story is clearly stated above. The overall atmosphere, as well as the plethora of terrifying mutated animals, is good enough for you to watch it at least once.

There, the unit meets Alice, a woman that’s suffering from amnesia. As they fight through hordes of zombies and other mutated animals, Alice starts regaining her memories.

 

Review and Opinions

The movie was great for its time. Everything from the atmosphere and the special effects to the music and the cast is good, especially for fans of the games. And despite being cheesy at points, it’s still full of entertaining scenes.

Derek Adams:  “Hats off, however, to the production team for the set designs and one very imaginative death-by-laser sequence. The rest is a derivative, tedious mess.”

Scott Foundas: “Despite a promising setup, pic never really goes anywhere, instead immersing viewers in a kinetic onslaught of flesh (namely, that of Milla Jovovich) and flesh-eaters (most of the rest of the cast).”

Review and Opinions

While the film isn’t perfect, it’s pretty entertaining. While there’s nothing too special about the movie, we get to learn about the T-Virus, which is awesome for those interested in Resident Evil’s lore.

Chris Hewitt: “Fans of the games will have fun spotting the Easter eggs on display, but precious little else. Indeed, the chief horror here is the cliffhanger promising a third instalment.”

Nev Pierce: “A zombie movie as dead-eyed and soulless as its walking dead villains.”

Knowing that she’s Umbrella’s target has made it difficult for her to survive. A new team of survivors is wandering through Nevada, exterminating zombies, crows, and mutated creatures.

 

Review and Opinions

Resident Evil: Extinction features a bunch of gory scenes. But, that’s it. Apart from this, the movie is pretty boring. If we exclude the amazing work done on the mutants and the zombies, the film is just bland. You should stay away from this one.

Nick Schager: “A Western-tinged adventure whose innovations are so scant that the only things keeping the enterprise afloat are clumsy references to its predecessors.”

Anthony Quinn: “One or two good action sequences keep boredom at bay for a while, but so little of it is fresh that extinction can’t come too soon.”

Along with a team of allies and survivors, they try to find the truth behind this incident.

 

Review and Opinions

This is the first Resident Evil movie that both critics and fans of the games agreed upon. The film is amazing. But, in order to appreciate the movie, you’ll need to have played some of the installments from the video game series.

Sebastian Zavala Kahn: “It tells a story full of tension and blood that ends up being really faithful to the games. That’s more than any of the Anderson movies managed to do.”

Christopher Monfette: “Overall, this is a movie for RE enthusiasts that can’t quite shake the patina of its videogame counterparts.”

Review and Opinions

Resident Evil: Afterlife is pretty similar to the first movie, which is understandable as it’s directed by the same person. There are a few action-packed scenes here and there, but nothing too special. 

Sandra Hill: “Whether or not you are a series regular, you are unlikely to encounter anything here that you haven’t met before in the sci-fi/horror movie universe.”

Andrea Gronvall: “True to series form, plot is nearly indiscernible, but this fourth installment in the sci-fi/horror/action franchise created by writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson is the sleekest so far, thanks to 3D and star Milla Jovovich’s body-hugging catsuit.”

While the US demands that Leon comes back, he’s determined to found out about the B.O.Ws, ignoring the orders given to him and entering the battlefield.

 

Review and Opinions

As we said right above, the movie is by far the best Resident Evil film. Everything, from the script to the CGI to the cast is perfect. If you had to watch one Resident Evil movie, then Damnation is the one for you.

Sebastian Zavala Kahn: “Better than its predecessor, and light-years beyond the live-action adaptations.”

Jeffrey Lyles: “If you’re a fan of the series, this is finally the ‘Resident Evil’ experience you’ve been waiting on.”

Cast & Characters

Plot/Synopsis

The film begins with Alice waking up at home with her husband and daughter. But, she doesn’t take long to understand that she’s in an Umbrella’s facility. She manages to escape, before meeting Ada Wong. Alice finds out that a team is out to rescue them, but two Umbrella agents are also out to get them.

 

Review and Opinions

The movie feels like video game levels, rather than a well-planned scenario. The acting on this one was unexpectedly bad. In our honest opinion, skip this one and watch Damnation.

Marc Savlov: “Nobody goes to a Resident Evil movie expecting a classic but this fifth entry in the series is just plain cruddy.”

Rafer Guzman: “The script is incoherent and the acting is terrible — avatars would have been an improvement.”

Review and Opinions

The film isn’t targeted at the general audience. It’s not even for casual fans of the games. But, it’s exactly what hardcore fans desired from a fan film. The movie does have a few action-packed scenes, however. Still, it’s pretty hit-or-miss when it comes to the viewing experience.

We have to admit that this short film is pretty good. It contains a lot of violence, which is directed well. Not to mention that it’s just 14 minutes. You should watch this instead of a random video on YouTube.

Plot/Synopsis

The movie takes place immediately after Retribution. Alice is the only one who has survived against the zombies. She must go back to The Hive, where it all began.

 

Review and Opinions

The last installment in the series isn’t the send-off that we expected. The writing is lazy at best. The greatest part of the film is its action scenes, but they will make you dizzy due to the bad camera work.

Valerie Complex: “The action scenes are choppy and move so quickly, it made me dizzy. Some scenes are so dark, you can’t see what’s happening, and the movie took itself too seriously – basically, sucking the life of the series.”

Donald Clarke: “The film comprises 20 per cent boring plot talk and 80 per cent even more boring action.”

  • Nadia (Kari Wahlgren / Haruka Tomatsu)
 
 
  • Patricio (Alexander Polinsky / Tetsu Shiratori)
 
 
 
 

Plot/Synopsis

The movie follows Leon Kennedy’s story, like its predecessors. In Vendetta, Leon must unite with Rebecca and Chris to protect the US from a virus that can be inhaled. They are the only ones who can save their country.

 

Review and Opinions

While the movie isn’t bad and it certainly beats every other film from the Resident Evil film series, it’s not what we hoped for. The story is bland, and so are the actors. It’d be better if you watched the previous installments rather than this one.

Blair Marnell: “The occasionally cool-looking moments aren’t enough to make up for the tedious pace and horrible script. The voice actors did the best that they could with the material, but there’s no vaccine for this movie.”

Jeffrey Lyles: “Resident Evil Vendetta takes the best aspects of the video game high points and makes an amazingly intense and action-packed thrill ride.”

Review and Opinions

The anime wasn’t great. It’s only good for long-time fans of the games, who’ll most likely watch anything related to Resident Evil. You should skip this one.

Joshua Rivera: “this seems like a project solely for committed fans, the kind of people who would most want to see a connection to those previous stories and the latest one… Infinite Darkness is doing its own thing. Unfortunately, that thing isn’t terribly compelling”

Lindsay Traves: “It’s maybe a thinly veiled metaphor for real world politics, or a story that uses them as inspiration for its own story, but its also just mostly a snooze.”
