Awful beyond words... what is this trash?
2 May 2009 | by (Leeds, England) – See all my reviews

This movie is awful beyond words... I can only surmise that those rating it highly have been so exposed to the trashy cut sequences found in Japanese video games, that they have simply come to accept terrible voice acting, dialoge, plot, characterisation, etc. as par for the course.

Everything about this movie (apart from the visuals) is on the level of cheap Saturday morning cartoons. I actually had to stop watching after 30 minutes, it was that bad.

The dialogue is incredibly stilted and unrealistic. The accents are some of the most unconvincing I've ever heard. There's the American trying to do an englishman, the woman trying to do a "little girl" impression by making her voice whiny and nasal... all clichés of cheap, talentless voice-over actors. Perhaps they ran out of money after spending it all on the animation?

What amuses me most about this film are the people who defend it... people who say things like "this is for fans only" implying that anyone who hasn't played the Resident Evil video games is somehow unqualified to give an opinion on this as a movie. Of course, the flipside to that is that "the fans" will clearly buy into any old rubbish shovelled onto their screens, so long as it ties in with whatever quasi-religious clique they happen to belong to.

Good luck to them... but any normal people shouldn't waste their time with this.
