I got this film, I had seen it before. There's lots of extras on it that I was curious about and seemed interesting - but I was a little disappointed because it was mostly commentary by the actors, and seemed like a lot of chatter rather than worthy bonus features. The deleted scenes are worth watching, and the film is more action-packed and intense in the follow-up. I believe a 3rd Evil is in the works with Ali Larter and the original heroine. There were some interesting characters in this one, with the young actress portraying the scientist's daughter giving a sound performance. I am hoping that in the 3rd film they will explain more of what was revealed in glimpses in the first two films. Overall, very worth watching. The Resident Evil series is a fresh and dramatic look at the otherwise routine zombie films, it is not horror it is an adaption of the video game. Good graphics and fine collaborative effort in the production. Read More

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
