GREAT ACTIONER, BUT NOT RESIDENT EVIL..,
This review is from: Resident Evil - Apocalypse [DVD]  (DVD)
Resident evil: Apocolypse is great as an action film, but not much else, when i first saw it i was amazed, especially at how real they made nemesis appear (although i would have liked to see his hand tentacles and maybe a mutation.) but after comparing it to the games, and especially the new 'Resident evil 4' i realised that Apocolypse does not have the fear that the games produce.
To me Resident evil is about sneaking down a dimly lit corridor, low on ammo, trying to avoid the decomposing zombie reaching out for you. not running through a city street with guns blazing, throwing punches and kicks into the undeads face , and enough flashing lights to cause a seizure.
However, dont get me wrong, i love everything about the resident evil franchise, from the games to the books, and while i enjoy the films, they need to reassess what resident evil is.
so 3 stars for being a good actioner but not much more.
