Word of caution, it gets much, much worse from there.
Aye I'm finding that out. I stopped watching the second one there. It was like they were trying to make up for the first film with fan service but had an absolute mare in how they adapted the setting and characters. It was like they were trolling tbh. Whatever Jill was in that film it wasn't her.
The Resident Evil movies are related only loosely to the game franchise. Outside the name of the series and a few token characters alongside zombies, it is pretty much it's own thing.
Watching it as a zombie movie, not a Resident Evil movie makes it easier to watch. But as above, they get progressively worse and worse until the last one which was a total waste of money, time, cast, crew, intelligence and everything else involved.
Such a shame. I wish they had done things more faithfully. I was really hopeful when the first film was announced.
The second one even fails at that. Didn’t they add some horrible strobe effect every time there were zombies? Like wtf?
I like the first, third and fourth movies.
Everything else is ****e.
I don't remember exactly what happened there. At some point everything from 2 onwards sort of becomes a blur.
I'm still pretty lenient on the first three movies and can enjoy them as mindless action films, but after Extinction it really took a turn for the worst IMO. Alice becoming so overpowered was ridiculous and took a lot of stakes out of those later movies and damn did they do the iconic videogame characters dirty, especially in Retribution. Man I really hope that new movie ends up being good, because it sounds promising so far.
Same here. I actually have no idea which film is which, or if I’ve even seen them all.
My own theory is that the original Resident Evil movie was a case of "unrelated script". Someone had a pre-existing zombie-ish action movie script, they got the RE license, and then they clumsily retrofitted it.
Yeah, it feels like that. Yeah hate the way valuable video game licenses are just wasted like this. FF: The Spirits Within is the worst offender I can think of.
They even had a Romero treatment they tossed out for this.
Eh, Spirits Within really isn't the same thing. That movie, the franchise creator had total creative control, and Sakiguchi made exactly the Final Fantasy movie he wanted to make. Sure, it had fairly little to do with any of the games, but the games themselves had fairly little to do with each other.
It just wasn't actually good, because "film maker" and "video game maker" are not the same crafts, and also, it was waaay too expensive. But if anything it was the opposite flaw to these Resident Evil movies.
Not even gonna lie, 12 year old me hated the first Resident Evil movie, I was like where the hell is Jill, Chris and Wesker, but I've grown to love it as the years gone by. I always liked how Alice is the one wearing a low cut red dress with her skin all out, but covered up Rain is the one who becomes zombie food.
Oh right. I didn’t realise the creator was behind it. Thanks for the info.
that's what usually what happens with video game adaptations. they use licence as a name to sell it to their investors to make movie and then make money in cinema....they really dont care for making good adaptations
