Based on the popular video game series by the same name, Resident Evil is about the Umbrella Corporation and their secret biological experiments. Living in the house above “The Hive,” Alice (Jovovich) awakens following an accident down below.
Long story short, a specially trained commando team (which includes Rodriguez) is sent in by Umbrella to assess the situation and shut down the supercomputer that runs the underground laboratory before the virus is unleashed on the outside world.
As you’d expect, there’s a lot of gun fire and action sequences as they battle the zombies and other mutated creatures within the facility.
This gets 1 star for being barely better than the sequel. Decent action scenes, and Milla Jovovich in a short, tight skirt isn’t a bad thing. Nevertheless, I’d recommend sticking to the video game versions over the movie series. That is unless you’re drinking.
Resident Evil gets a one out of five: AWFUL.
