RESIDENT EVIL (Theatrical Release USA 2002)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

Resident Evil, a movie based on an exceptionally popular Japanese computer game,  entertains well, unlike other films built from gaming stories. It is the first movie in a series of six. While not among the best movies produced by Hollywood, it has a certain element in it that just works all the way around. It creates its own kudos because it tries and succeeds in its own right. It’s applauded for that. The storyline is well done and the portrayal is above average. This film leaves the audience with an absolute understanding that there will be a sequel. This is one of few post-apocalyptic films that is worth watching.
