A big screen version of the popular computer game. A virus has been sealed in an underground research centre, the Hive, and Alice (Milla Jovovich) and Rain (Michelle Rodriguez) are sent in with a team of commandos to destroy it. However, they have not counted on the fact that all the employees who were trapped in the Hive with the virus, and thought to be dead, have been turned into the living dead and one scratch from them can cause the recipient to become like them...
Given that Resident Evil is a Paul Anderson movie based on a computer game which was itself highly derivative (especially of George A Romero and James Cameron films), it's probably unfair to complain that it hasn't got an original idea or moment in its entire running time. In the early 1980s, Italian schlock films such as Zombie Flesh Eaters and Zombie Creeping Flesh tried to cram in as many moments restaged from American originals as possible, strung together by silly characters wandering between monster attacks. This is a much-improved, edited, photographed and directed version of the same gambit.
As amnesiac Milla Jovovich remembers amazing kung fu skills and anti-globalist Eric Mabius mutters about evil corporations, a gang of clichéd soldiers with nary a distinguishing feature between them (except for Michelle Rodriguez as a secondary tough chick) are trapped in an underground scientific compound at the mercy of a tyrannical computer--which manifests as a smug little-girl-o-gram--fending off flesh-eating zombies (though gore fans will be disappointed by the film's need to stay within the limits of the 15 certificate) and CGI mutants, not to mention the ever-popular zombie dogs. It's tolerably action-packed, but zips past its borrowings (Aliens, Cube, Deep Blue Sea) without adding anything that future schlock pictures will want to imitate.
On the DVD: Resident Evil on disc has the expected trailers, both teaser and theatrical; a half-hour making-of; zombie make-up tests; featurettes on music (with Marilyn Manson), production design and costume. A lively commentary track features Anderson, Jovovich, Rodriguez and producer/zombie Jeremy Bolt--Jovovich upbraids Anderson for talking about different gradings of film stock over her nude scene and everyone else talks about how much she hurt them by punching them out during action sequences. Anderson mentions an alternate commentary track with visual effects designer Richard Yuricich, but it isn't included. --Kim Newman

The writers done a poor job on the characters, a highly trained military task force does not contain people like the movie has.. The overly aggressive lady was immature, unprofessional and undisiplined. Then there was a cry baby..
The lead role actress needs to learn how to react to things thats arnt actually there, eg the bit where she shoots the dogs, she looks blank as if shes shooting nothing, obviously the dogs arnt really there, its the actors job to portray they are.
With stupid flying kicks, terrible puns, predictable scares and amazingly bad CGI this film was a huge disappointment. Sadly I bought all 5 at once, lets hope it improves..
Deep underneath Raccoon City exists a large, secret genetic research facility called the Hive, owned by the Umbrella Corporation. The whole site is controlled and managed by an artificial intelligence called the Red Queen. At the very beginning of the movie SOMETHING happens which makes the Red Queen seal the Hive and start killing everyone inside.
Exactly at the same moment an attractive young woman named Alice (Milla Jovovich) wakes up in a deserted mansion - bruised, naked and unable to remember jack... Then she realises the manor is not as deserted as it first looked... And then the film really begins.
Well, as adaptations of video games go, this one is better than most and actually it is a pretty decent action film. Personally, I never liked much zombie flicks (with the only exception being the old black and white classic "Night of Living Dead") but this one is quite watchable. Action scenes are not bad, there are some rather good (sometimes pretty cruel) twists, Milla Jovovich is very sexy and Michelle Rodriguez offers a great performance as a Very Macho Commando Girl With Big B@lls Of Fire...))) Also, the Red Queen is a pretty interesting villain.
On another hand dialogs are not so great and there is little humour. Even if there are some twists the whole story is rather predictable and the ending, albeit necessary for the already then planned sequel, is really silly.Read more ›
Technical: The menus and everything works great. The only thing is, I wished they had spend a bit more money and time on encoding the video. In dark scenes, it tends to be a bit grainy.
This film really does justice to the game and shows films and games can all most become one.
Milla Jovovich is perfect in roll and does good job nice acting .
Some great action sequences a good story and nice fun film watch,.
I watched mine at least 12 time in last few years .
Only thing is once you watch it you want play game again or buy next movie in series.
THEN THE COMMANDO TEAM ARE SENT TO CLEAN UP THE SCIENTIFIC MESS OF ESCAPING ZOMBIE PLAGUE.
THE COMMANDOS ARE HEROIC, BUT GET KILLED ATTEMPTING TO STOP THE ZOMBIES ESCAPING THE UNDERGROUND COMPLEX.
FIGHTING THEIR WAY THROUGH ZOMBIES, MONSTERS, MUTATIONS, AND SCIENTIFIC TECHNOLOGICAL DEFENCES.
EVENTUALLY ONLY ALICE ESCAPES, TO FIND OUTSIDE THE COMPLEX, RACOON CITY NOW ABANDONED !
NEXT RESIDENT EVIL APOCALYPSE !
Oh well, enough of that. I am one of this film's fans. Let me say up front that I realise that it has some fairly fundamental believability problems. However, if you hang your belief on the peg at the door and accept the film for what it really /is/ and ignore the director/producer/actor waffle on the "Making of" documentary about how they loved playing the game and wanted to reproduce the experience in the cinema then there should be no reason to really hate the film. And what it really is, is a zombie flick for the 21st century. Pure, simple and unambiguous. It has all the elements.Read more ›

Great film starring Mila Jovich, a few jumpy parts but a great film overallPublished 4 months ago by jamie
A horror film that wants so bad to get a PG rating. Not impressed at all at the lack of creativity and we have the usual gung ho soldiers that don't have a brain cell among them. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Mr R P Smith
