My name is Alice. I worked for the Umbrella Corporation in a secret laboratory developing experimental viral weaponry. There was an incident. A virus escaped. Everybody died. Trouble was, they didn't stay dead. This was the start of an apocalypse that would sweep the entire world. The men responsible for this disaster took refuge underground and continued to experiment with the deadly T-Virus. They felt secure in their high-tech fortress. But they were wrong.

Does exactly what I expected it would do - best of the first 4
I just got around to watching the RE films as I found a special offer for the first four on blu-ray for a very cheap price. I have never played any of the games, nor do I know anything about RE i.e. I am not a fanboy. Having watched all four back to back I have concluded that the ranking should be as follows (best to worst):
4th (2D version the 3D version would almost certainly render it the worst of the 4), 2nd, 3rd (Mad Max homage), 1st
My logic is that these films seem to be a basic comic book bang-crash franchise and therefore they should be judged on their ability to deliver thrills, explosions and insanely silly plots. Four does this; two is an enjoyable remix of Escape from New York; three is OK but it really is a Mad Max rip-off; one looks like it came from the video game and no-one bothered to make it look like a film.
Once again I am dumbfounded by reviews which complain about the lack of logic and the many plot holes in these films about an uber-babe who fights zombies and blows things up. Go and watch a Merchant-Ivory film if those sort of things concern you.
