They're ridiculous, they know it, and they don't give a damn what you think. In point of fact, they prefer if you don't think.
Let's get one thing straight, I am a huge fan of the game series. I own Resident Evil 1-5, and I'm probably going to buy 6 soon. I am fully aware that these movies deviate from the games in every way, but for some reason I still love them. They're dumb, stupid fun.
Resident Evil is actually a great movie in and of itself. It's suspenseful, and well made. I appreciate the fact that zombies and other monsters aren't introduced till late in the movie.
Resident Evil: Apocalypse is actually my favorite of the bunch. It's a good action movie, and I think they really captured Nemesis. Great movie, and awesome action.
Resident Evil: Extinction is a little slow, but is ultimately a good movie. The story of this series has never been cohesive, but the plot of this one in particular is just ridiculous. At this point the movies have become self aware and every subsequent sequel is even more bombastic and ridiculous. Awesome...
Resident Evil: Afterlife is a little weird. Kind of strangely paced, but still a solid action movie. I love how they don't even try to explain how the zombies got Las Plagas virus. Just go with it.
Resident Evil: Retribution. Holy hell. What a strange ride. It's a top notch comedy, I'll say that much. I, personally really liked this movie. It's just so... ridiculous. Like I said, these movies have become self aware, and are now just trying to one up each other. This one does a hell of a job.
Milla Jovovich is hamming it up with every single movie. It's really funny. She's always this hardcore action star with a little bit of an emotional side. I also think she's just gorgeous, so that's alright.
These movies aren't oscar winning classics. They're like every cheesy 80's action flick that you love. Keep that in mind if you are looking to buy these films. As for this collection, they are all the individual releases with no added special features other than the ones that are included with the individual release. Good for the price.
