A great sequel,
This review is from: Resident Evil - Apocalypse [DVD]  (DVD)
The sequel to Resident Evil is pretty much what you'd expect. After being captured by the Umbrella Corporation at the end of the first film, almost-sole-survivor Alice (Milla Jovovich) wakes up in an abandoned laboratory in Raccoon City to find that the zombie-inducing `t-virus' has infected Raccoon City. Half the city is already infected and Umbrella Corporation has sealed off the city limits and is planning to "sanitize" the area.
Hooking up with a rag-tag group of survivors, Alice makes a deal with a rogue Umbrella scientist who promises to get them out of the city if they rescue his missing daughter who's lost in the city. But as you may imagine Umbrella has its own plans for Alice and seven-foot armour-clad mutant called Nemesis who's using the infected city as a training ground. Cue much shooting, fighting and explosions.
I really enjoyed Resident Evil: Apocalypse as a thriller with action, suspense and a bit of gore thrown in to keep up with the genre. Mila Jovovich is brilliant as Alice and with the addition of Sienna Guillory as Valentine and Oded Fehr as Carlos Olivera you've got all the ingredients for a shoot-em-up action thriller with a twist. As with the first movie the cliffhanger ending leaves the door wide open for the next installment in the series.
