Roger EbertFull Review Very Poor The movie is an utterly meaningless waste of time. There was no reason to produce it, except to make money, and there is no reason to see it, except to spend money. It is a dead zone, a film without interest, wit, imagination or even entertaining violence and special effects.

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
We collected 134 moviegoer opinions. It's easy to see that "Resident Evil" is more of a teen movie, but it also did very well with adults, especially considering the type of movie it is. As always with horror type movies, there are a few that rate it low to very low. (I suspect many of these are non-horror fans going to see it with someone who is a fan.) Fortunately, there are fewer of these low opinions than normal. Combine this with the high to very high opinions given by most moviegoers and you get a movie that I can highly recommend to those interested in this type of movie.
In the heart of the ravaged Raccoon City, a small group of uninfected people, including Jill Valentine (SIENNA GUILLORY) – a recently demoted member of Umbrella Corp's elite Special Tactics and Rescue Services (S.T.A.R.S.) team, and S.T.A.R.S. team leader Carlos Oliveira (ODED FEHR), fight for their lives against swarms of Undead and the deadlier and faster Lickers. Running out of luck and resources, the group is rescued by Alice, and they begin to wage an exhilaratingly desperate battle to survive and escape before the Umbrella Corporation erases its experiment from the face of the earth.
Their only hope lies somewhere within Raccoon City… Dr. Charles Ashford (JARED HARRIS), one of the leading scientists for the Umbrella Corporation, will help Alice and the others escape the city safely – if they find his daughter. Angie Ashford (SOPHIE VAVASSEUR) became separated from her father and now hides in fear. Alice, Jill and Carlos will have to fight their way through an army of Undead to save her.
All the while, a secret weapon code-named Nemesis has been experimentally altered with greater modifications than Alice and has been programmed to track and destroy them – if the relentless, ravenous Undead don't get to the group first.
Alice, Jill and Carlos will need all of their strengths and skills to fight the battle of their lives against the mindless evil that has infected the city and the powerful forces that unleashed it on mankind.
