'Resident Evil' Review By Bawnian©-Dexeus
Not a single video game played
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.
