DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Thriller - This movie is pretty much exactly what you would expect it to be, action, killing, blood and more action. It contains very little story or character development. It does require you to forgive the writers for some obvious liberties taken in believability to get the story to go the way they wanted it to.

Critic's Review Heading
Average

The above rating is an average of the critic reviews below.

(Close new window when finished with Full Reviews)

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Above Average "a splattery futuristic zombie thriller, designed as a jolt-a-minute freakout for young audiences who were numbed into submission long ago.  Resident Evil turns into a monster combat thriller as impersonal in its relentlessness as the videogame series that inspired it.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Poor "The movie is "Dawn of the Dead" crossed with "John Carpenter's "Ghosts of Mars," with zombies not as ghoulish as the first and trains not as big as the second. The movie does however have Milla Jovovich and Michelle Rodriguez.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Average "Evil begins promisingly, sags for 75 minutes, then rallies a little at the end. But an already thin story boils down to surviving invaders seeking an existent anti-virus. If only there were one for this kind of movie.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Below Average "Handsome and sometimes creepy, but formulaic in the extreme.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

These are very mixed opinions. Fortunately most of the opinions are from the 13-19 teen males age group that this movie is targeted to and they rated it very high, and they're really the ones that count anyway. So, for 13-19 teen males I HIGHLY RECOMMEND "RESIDENT EVIL."

Young adult males also gave it some pretty high opinions and I would recommend it to them as well. Adult males should probably skip it unless they have a high interest in this type of movie. Same for adult females. Most younger teen females enjoyed it (or at least indicated that they did, so they would not disappoint their boy friends).

Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
This is a movie squarely targeted at teen males and I predict they will not be disappointed. I'm far from a teen male and I found it very entertaining, for the type of movie it is.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Something terrible is lurking in the Hive, a vast underground genetic research facility run by the Umbrella Corporation, a faceless bio-engineering conglomerate. A deadly viral outbreak occurs, and in response, the Red Queen - a vast supercomputer that controls and monitors the Hive - seals the entire facility to contain the leak, killing all the trapped employees.

Alice (MILLA JOVOVICH) and Rain (MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ) must lead fellow commandos to isolate the virus that has wiped out Umbrella's entire research staff. The team soon discovers, however, that the workers are…not…really…dead. They are now the ravenous, zombie-like Undead, and they are prowling the hive. One bite or scratch from an Undead causes infection and worse, instant transformation into their kind.

Alice and the military task force have three hours to complete their mission before the Undead threaten to overrun the Earth. To access the Red Queen, the team must pass through a series of increasingly horrifying obstacles in the maze-like hive. These include deadly lasers, mutant dogs and a vast specimen room where Alice witnesses the results of Umbrella's evil experimental research. Alice soon discovers the Undead are the ghastly result of Umbrella's latest project gone awry -- the T-virus.

Initially designed to combat ageing and fight nerve-based diseases, the T-virus has the ability to reanimate dead cells. Alice realizes that an unknown saboteur has stolen the virus and freed it into the hive's atmosphere. That's how the outbreak occurred. Who would do such a thing, and why?

Confronting the giant computer, Rain demands that she guide them to the surface. The Red Queen agrees, but insists that no one who is infected will be allowed to escape. Unless of course, they can find the Anti-Virus first. Standing in their way is a genetically mutated experiment that is now a vicious creature known as "the Licker,” bent on destroying them all. The Licker's strength increases with each victim it slays–making the team's job even more deadly.

Will the team defeat the Red Queen and find the anti-virus in time? Or are they doomed to turn Undead? Who, if anyone, will escape the evil Hive alive?
