Review: DK and I watched this the other night and it was amazing. It harkens back to the old school Resident Evil games, where you were shooting zombies and maybe a few crazy mutants. The best thing to compare it to is one long, action packed cutscene.

Things I wasn't thrilled with: Actually there wasn't much that bothered me except the character design for Chris and Leon. Leon looked like a douchie pretty boy, while Chris was a 'roided army man. Of course as DK reminded me, Chris did punch a rock to death (RE5) so I guess he needed to be a bit 'roided for that. My one other issue was with Rebecca, she'd gone through the whole zombie thing before and was a member of S.T.A.R.S with that training under her belt. So why did she freak out so much when the zombies started coming after her?  I mean she's dealt with these things before.

Things I liked: The graphics were so good that at times it looked real. The story was like the plot to one of the games. I liked the Chris and Leon team up, I also liked that they brought back Rebecca. The game and previous movie references were a great little treat for any Resident Evil fan. Lots of action, blood and gore, just what you'd expect from this franchise.

Conclusion: I feel this is a must see for any old school Resident Evil fans. If you liked the earlier Resident Evil games then I think you'll really enjoy this movie.
