Critic Reviews of "Resident Evil"VarietyMarch 31, 2009
Despite a promising setup, pic never really goes anywhere, instead immersing viewers in a kinetic onslaught of flesh (namely, that of Milla Jovovich) and flesh-eaters (most of the rest of the cast).Time OutJune 24, 2006
Hats off, however, to the production team for the set designs and one very imaginative death-by-laser sequence. The rest is a derivative, tedious mess.Chicago TribuneJuly 20, 2002
On its own terms, Resident Evil updates the zombie genre with an anti-corporate message while still scaring its audience and providing heart-pounding action.Ebert & RoeperMarch 19, 2002

An ultra-gory video game-to-movie disappointment.LarsenOnFilmSeptember 09, 2010
The overblown action and cheapo effects become as relentless as the undead.Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
A Z grade bit of fodder for the pre-teen sector...
