I’ve never played any of the video games but this movie was awesome. I guess we’re considering these zombie movies, right? It’s reanimated dead people after all, plus other cool shit of course.
You know, it’s not realistic but I think thats a product of the video game adaptation. Not only that but the director Paul Andersen seems to have a solid grasp of the entertainment aspect of horror. Unfortunately the entertainment aspect of horror doesn’t always correlate to a meaningful film or exceptional innovation. Personally, that’s okay for me but someone else might easily find these types of films to be heartless in that sense.
Milla Jovovich is a fantastic lead. She’s just striking and fills the role incredibly well. I found her character to be a really interesting mix of kind of cold and methodical but also very emotionally overwhelmed.
This is definitely a good film for what it set out to do.
