Resident Evil is a 2002 action horror thriller movie.

Directed by: Paul W.S. Anderson

Starring: Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez, Eric Mabius, Jame Purefoy and Colin Salmon.

Paul W.S. Anderson has received nothing but negativity since the days of Mortal Kombat. You know, when I saw that movie, it looked cool. I see it now, and I just can't make it past the first act without asking myself "Seriously? You enjoyed this?". Sort of like with me and Battlefield Earth. Enter Resident Evil, adapted from the popular video game series turned into boredom. Now, I don't speak from a direct personal vendetta towards the director or Milla Jovovich, but from a general consensus. Never played the video game, and though I only like one of the movies in this soon to be over series before the supposed faithful rebooted adaptation, it's a guilty pleasure and nothing more. A virus breaks out ast the Umbrella Corporation (ruler of all science and political) and a team are sent to investigate and retrieve valuable data, but everyone dies and a woman with fictional fighting abilities survives for another sequel and an easy paycheck. Though I saw the first sequel in theaters first and this one second, it lacked fast pace editing, believable dramatic performances and well, better looking visuals. I mean, I tried to refresh my memory the other day and most of the graphics were on par with Windows 98. I will say the the only good that came from this movie is just having Milla and everything that happened before the first Zombies started chomping. Can we not forget Michelle Rodriguez's epicness and the green lazer of death? Best parts, and nothing more.

Don't want to get a job in that world and be on the road and not be around as much as I should for planning out the wedding and such... playing it by ear at the moment! But I will let you know!

    @bawnian-dexeus Don't get me started on that little bitch... haha Yes I am! Percussionist to be exact! Went to Sherpherd University and then Berklee College of Music... I have my degree in percussion performance and Music Composition! Writing music pays the bills! I sit behind a desk in front a drum pad, piano with midi connection and my computer! Write music when it is needed, usually for High School marching band shows or drumline scores... But when there is nothing to write, I just jump onto MovieWeb... hence why I rejoined recently and why I am here a lot! All during the day time and never over the weekends... I do teach percussion at the high school in the town I live as well!

    Sorry if seem braggy... not trying to be! I just love what I do and get excited when music comes up! ;)

    @mcleve02 Still an instrument. You are the musician. Kind of like words becoming music to the ears. Or just a Justin Bieber kind of review like the one we saw this morning and it forces the ears to bleed

    @bawnian-dexeus haha I do what I can... I am a music man, not a writer! I can compose one mean orchestral, jazz band, marching band, drumline, etc piece, but writing is something I have just never been great at! Dyslexia doesn't help either... thank god for spell check! ;)
