RESIDENT EVIL: Apocalypse

It was proabably the worst movie I have seen this year, but for some reason I enjoyed it. Don't know why but I really enjoyed it even though the acting was weak and the story was nothing like the game. Well it started off like the game but then went another direction.

It also has the most token black guy ever.

Haven't seen it yet, but I laugh at the nemesis every time I see it. My newspaper called it, "an extra from one of the LOTR films." I'm probably going to go see it Saturday, so I'll holler w/ my review.

It was those legs, man. Sienna will make any guy enjoy it.

I had high hopes to actually see this, but lately after the reviews and recent clips of the movie, it made a gigantic turn into... weak. I know, I can't believe I'm actually saying this, but this won't be a blockbuster nor will it be the best movie of any year. But then again, I already knew that.

I will see it eventually, I just have to.

Mike Epps right? He usually acts in comedies, not even good ones for that matter (Malibu's Most Wanted, Next Friday). Wow, I hope he isn't the type that cracks a stupid joke every 5 seconds.

And the whole concept of Nemesis seems stupid. Seems right for a videogame but not for the movie. I bet he looks corny too. But what do I know, that's just me.

I liked it. As a big fan of the games, it was fun to see everything from the 2nd and 3rd installments in the movie. And Jill Valentine was done perfectly, and she's mighty hot.

Example of Mike Epps line in the movie below. Not really much of a spoiler.














He gets chased by a zombie only to find himself in a store w/ like 20 other STARS members. They all have insane amount of guns and a huge ass enemy is coming. The guy on STARS asks the black guy if he needs a gun, and he says "Hell no, Mother Fucker, I got my shit custom!" he then flips his coat up to show two gold deagles.

This is just one of many. The first line made me laugh, but it got old fast.

I'm apart of a Milla forum at www.millaj.com, and most of the people there probably feel obligated to like the movie because they're fans of Milla. I'm just not like that...

As far as critics go - sometimes they're full of shit, but the reasons why they hate this film, actually do make sense. Though I haven't seen the movie, I'm reading bad reviews from left to right, it's just sad.

I personally think they're going about these films all wrong, they lack style... either that or they're are just another poor excuse for a zombie film. I love the video games, I've played them all... but Nemesis does look lame.

Any movie that has the sentence "we need more weapons" in it can't be totally bad.

I think one of the things I enjoyed was seeing scenes and settings from the game. I guess also being a big fan of the game also made me like it a lot.

Well, I saw it, and I have to say, I was a little dissapointed, Mainly because they changed A LOT from the games, but I can understand that this is not 100% faithful to the games. Example: The T-Virus does not spread through the air like in the movie, the Nemisis looked downright cuddable, and the whole "running down the building" part was quite funny to see. If your a fan of the game, go see it, if not, wait for the DVD.

it was average movie, and personally I enjoyed seeing the wide range of characters, probably because Milla Jovovich is in it, but anyway... here goes nothingl...

>Oded, the "cool" guy

>Milla Jovovich, as Alice...btw she is by far the coolest person on this earth, her and keira are tied in my opinion.

>Nicholai, the stars agent, who I think was THE coolest character, too bad he didn't live to.... I mean... no spoilers

>Sienna, Jill was good... but she's not THAT good (I agree, Milla > all)

If I ever met Milla I would shit my pants (from excitement of course)

I liked Sienna more than Milla, she's incredibly hot. Hopefully, she'll get nekkid in RE3. Just speaking my mind.

And the STARS guy was okay I guess, I absolutely hated his partner who had the horrible Irish accent, I was very pleased when he died.

They were not STARS. They were Umbrella.

She was nekkid in RE:2.

uggg...

They had so much time to make this movie, why did it suck so much?

Sienna was so hot that she made #9 on my hotties list.

But why was it that both times when Milla was naked, I was a tad repulsed.

PS- Mike Epps used to be a star, lol...

Mike Epps's first line made me laugh. It just went down hill from there. Can't use that many sterotypical black guy lines.

Don't worry, the worst movie of the year is definitely "Torque". But RE: A was so bad that it actually stole elelments from Torque. For instance, the motorcycle scene happened the exact same way in both movies. It was a girl doing it in both movies too.
