    Err. You know, this movie could have gotten a 8.5 from me because I loved the action, I loved the story, and I loved the occasional humor, but it is getting a 3.5 for being a replica of Dawn of the Dead, complete with cowboy-American-on-the-roof-sniping-zombies-for-fun.

    Disappointing.


    If you haven't seen Dawn of the Dead, this is a GREAT movie I think. More intense than the first one. :)

    I saw it Friday night in the theater with two friends. It even had a lineup, and I was one hour early.

    :rolleyes: Are you people never satisfied? What where you expecting?

    Oscar material? Was the film not entertaining?

    Well I thought it was, and I enjoyed a bit of zombie bashing.

    It tries to follow the story of a GAME for goodnes sake. An I thought they did a good job of it.

    Having played all the games i thought they did their best to follow the story. The effects were good and the action sequences entertaining, alhtough a little hard to see!

    Stop your bitching :nono:

    The first film didnt have a story anything like the first game, I dont think it even had any characters from the game either, not got a lot of hope for resi 2 as its written by the most appalling writer to appear in the last ten years.

    I was talking of the first film, would have been great to have all the conspiracy with wesker and umbrella, the mutant plant, snake and the final boss.

    Why shouldn't it have a good story just because it's based on a game?

    If Final Fantasy: Advent Children (based on the game - Final Fantasy 7 btw)can have an excellent story then why can't we expect the same thing from Resident Evil?

    The game series has an excellent, rich and detailed story heritage which could easily be transferred to the film industry. But it isn't...because the films are cheap cash-ins of the game. I liked the first film but it had nothing to do with the games (apart from some references to Umbrella and the Licker)

    I'll go and watch the second film one day but I'm not expecting very much from it

    Yeah the original story was great, if it aint broke dont fix it.

    Ohh Giant spiders and the hunters would have been great in the film.

    Resident evil the game was good in its day and I have played them all. However the last game for the gamecube was just the same old tired gameplay and I got so bored I gave up.

    that appalling writer you talk about has probably made a lot more money than you have in the field of writing so some people must like his work.
    I thought the first film was okay. I have a phobia about Zombies (even Shaun of the dead scared me) so I will definately go and see it.

    To be honest the story of the original Resi games would have made poor movie material.

    What exactly do you do in the game? Run around a zombie infested mansion. Thats it!

    You cant expect somone to write a film about that?

    Besides, the first and second resi films are supposed to be tied together. THe first film sets up the second film. Rather nicely I thought.

    It still sounds like many of you still havent seen the second film.

    Crispy, this thread is about the 2nd film is it not? I agree the 1st film wasnt all that good, but once you see teh 2nd film, you might think a bit differently.

    Like I said they tie in together.

    And yes, there were plenty zombies in the 2nd film.
