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.
Plot: When a virus leaks from a top-secret facility, turning all resident researchers into ravenous zombies and their lab animals into mutated hounds from hell, the government sends in an elite military task force to contain the outbreak. Alice and Rain are charged with leading the mission. But they only have three hours before the pathogen becomes airborne and infects the world.

I originally watched “Resident Evil” at a movie theater when it was first released in 2002. I hadn’t played the games. There was no Rotten Tomatoes and I didn’t read reviews back then so I went in blind. And I utterly enjoyed the movie: the story, the action sequences, the underground “Hive,” Mila Jovovich and Michelle Rodriguez kicking serious ass, and more.
Panned by critics (36% RT) but liked by users (67% RT), Resident Evil was one of the first examples of how mainstream critics just don’t “get” horror. Movies that try to be artsy get great reviews even as key elements fall flat for the rest of us. The recent “Beach House” is a perfect example of this — it was loved by critics (81% RT) and panned by users (28%).
Unfortunately, the rest of the “Resident Evil” sequels except for a few moments, rarely captured that first movie’s originality and allure. Instead, check out the writer/director’s excellent previous outing “Event Horizon.”
Been several years since I last watched this one and I guess it’s passable but not very scary (I personally don’t find zombies all that frightening) and the CGI creatures, while okay for its time, didn’t add to the tension either. At least some of the action was alright and not bad following around Milla Jovovich. **2.75/5**
Scary and atmospheric
“Resident Evil” was a smart and scary game. The darkness and the surprises were huge scare factors. In that famous game, you find yourself trapped in a mansion crawling with the undead because of a mistake made by the Umbrella Corporation.
Director Paul W.S. Anderson makes a fast, dark guilty pleasure of a film from this game with “Resident Evil”.
Milla Jovovich is Alice, who wakes up in a creepy, poorly lit mansion at night in a remote forest. She has no memory of who she is or why she’s here, but after a group of soldiers bursts in and takes her to a hidden lab underneath the mansion with them, she quickly begins to realize a terrible secret. She and the others find themselves locked in “The Hive”, an enormous, elaborate underground structure that was sealed by the supercomputer controlling it. It soon becomes evident that an experiment called “The T-Virus” escaped into the air and killed everyone. But nobody really stayed dead. Now the remaining survivors must fight their way back out of The Hive before the door seals permanently… and at the same time they must contain the virus before it reaches the surface.
The film moves at a breakneck pace, with some elaborate sets and great cinematography that sets the dark mood well for this atmospheric sci-fi thriller.
I was generally surprised that I liked this movie, not being a fan of either of it’s stars. I decided to give the movie a try since it does deal with one of my favorite horror topics…zombies!
As a horror movie Resident Evil fails miserably, it’s not scary and contains only small amounts of suspense. It is much better as an action film although much of the action is chaotic, accompanied by lame heavy metal/thrash music. But seeing as it is based on a video game and made primarily for teenage boy video game addicts it is quite good in and of itself.
The movie plays well, even though it is apparent that some scenes have been cut to achieve an R-rating. The characters do what they need to do in order to survive.
One small problem with the movie is the relative lack of zombie screen time. They do appear in two major scenes but most of the time the hallways are clear. This hive was supposed to employ thousands of people but you only ever see 100 zombies at the most. Also, the humans seem to be able to travel easily wherever they have to go until it is time for another action sequence. It would have been better if they constantly ran into single zombies which they were able to easily dispose of, but this is nit-picking on my part.
Overall I enjoyed the movie and I have never seen, let alone played, the video game. I’m not sure if this movie will have the staying power over multiple viewings for me (like Aliens) but it’s a very good single viewing action picture. Easily the best movie I have seen based on a video game. Despite it’s flaws Resident Evil rates a 7 out of 10, if taken more seriously this could have been a really good movie. It would have been nice to see a George Romero version.
