Resident Evil


Most of the time, movies based off of video games are dismally bad, horrendously low-budget creations with little redeeming value. This one, however, stands out from the pack. While it is definitely low-budget (and clearly, most of the budget was spent on a particular CGI creature), most of the time that doesn't show. The actors are competent if not exceptional, and the action comes fast and furious. The plot is significantly more complex that should be expected from a video game adaptation.

Even so, don't go to this movie looking for high-gloss action or great one-liners. It's pure humans-versus-zombies fun. Definitely a B movie, but a well-done B movie that deserves praise for scoring well above expectations.
