Decent Enough Sequel

on 1/22/2013

The second movie picks up where the first left off with Alice finding out that the infection has reached the surface. The picture is great. The storyline makes sense. The whole Nemesis concept worked well enough throughout the movie. This was the last Resident Evil movie that I thought was above average. Read More

Product Overview

After narrowly escaping the horrors of the underground Hive facility, Alice (Milla Jovovich) is quickly thrust back into a war raging above ground between the living and the Undead. As the city is locked down under quarantine, Alice joins a small band of elite soldiers, led by Valentine (Sienna Guillory, Love, Actually) and Carlos (Oded Fehr, The Mummy Returns), enlisted to rescue the missing daughter of Dr. Ashford, the creator of the mutating T-virus. It's a heart-pounding race against time as the group faces off against hordes of blood- thirsty zombies, stealthy Lickers, mutant canines andthe most sinister foe yet. Written and produced by the visionary director of Resident Evil, Paul W.S. Anderson (Alien Vs. Predator) and directed by Alexander Witt, RESIDENT EVIL: Apocalypse is a superior sci-fi suspense sequel.System Requirements:Running Time: 94 MinFormat: BLU-RAY DISC

Editors Note
Note The lovely Milla Jovovitch is back with a vengeance as amnesiac, genetically-altered zombie ass-kicker, Alice, in this sequel to the 2002 hit film, which is based on the video game. This time around the sinister Umbrella Corporation sends a team of investigators into their destroyed underground lab (the ground-zero of carnage in the previous film) and unwittingly unleash the still-staggering zombies and monsters out into the population of Raccoon City. Soon Umbrella has evacuated all of their own key employees and has shut everyone else inside to be devoured. A mastermind chemist's daughter gets left behind in the confusion, and she is the one ticket out for Alice and a handful of dwindling survivors, including the equally hot, skimpily dressed, and almost-as-tough lady cop, Jill Valentine (Sienna Guillory). There's some nifty motorcycle riding, plenty of bullets and splattering blood, and even a new monster--the hulking, heavily-armored, seriously ugly Nemesis. Comic actor Mike Epps is great as a pimped-out hustler who handles the whole dead-coming-back-to-life thing with cool nonchalance. In some ways, this nonstop creep show is even an improvement over the original, with a pervasive mood of nihilistic corporate dehumanization adding extra concern about the future of civilization to the mix of shooting, dying, punching, and munching.
Reviews
New York Times "Mr. Anderson's screenplay provides a steady series of inventive action situations....It is, of course, all in the timing, and Mr. Witt's is extremely good. He knows just when to lay in a lull and just when to puncture it with a shock effect..." 09/10/2004 p.E16
Los Angeles Times "Witt injects the film with plenty of razzle-dazzle on the visual side..." 09/10/2004 p.E4
Sight and Sound "[The film] does deliver solid action/horror/superheroic scenes: the Hitchcock-on-steroids mutant crow attack is outstanding..." 11/01/2007 p.71

ReviewSource Film Threat
Review Critically speaking, movies based on video games always start on a disadvantageous position. Let's face it: when your best films for comparison are "Super Mario Bros.," "Street Fighter," and "Wing Commander," expectations are understandably lowered. Hell, even the first "Resident Evil" was a mixed bag. It had its moments, but most of them came after a solid 45 minutes of snooze, and what interesting scenes there were seemed inserted simply for the purpose of looking cool (the decapitating laser grid), rather than making any kind of narrative sense. In spite (or perhaps because) of this, the original enjoyed moderate box office success, but nobody figured "Resident Evil: Apocalypse" - second in what appears to be an ongoing series based on Capcom's popular zombie horror games - would break new cinematic ground. And it doesn't. "Apocalypse" is dumb, loud, and ludicrous in the extreme, and I actually enjoyed it.
