Chicago Tribune - Robert K. Elder
One of the few video game movies to truly re-create the gaming experience -- from the three-dimensional maps to the structure of encountering increasingly grisly and dangerous foes at higher levels of play.

San Francisco Chronicle - Mick LaSalle
There's a psychological undercurrent. The movie occupies a zone where science fiction and nightmares collide and intertwine.

USA Today - Mike Clark
Evil's one strong presence is lead Milla Jovovich -- and not because the script gives her supercop/soldier anything interesting to say.

Boston Globe - Loren King
A video game cum movie that substitutes shrieking decibel levels for a coherent plot and any resemblance to originality.

Resident Evil (2002)


A virus has escaped in a secret facility called 'The Hive,' turning the staff into hungry zombies and releasing the mutated Lab 'Animals' that they were studying. The complex computer shuts down the base to prevent infection. The parent corporation sends in an elite military unit, where they meet Alice, who is suffering from amnesia due to exposure to nerve gas. The military team must shut down the computer and get out, fighting their way past zombies, mutants, and the computer itself, before the virus escapes and infects the rest of the world. Alice must also come to terms with her slowly-returning memories.
