Film, bears some resemblance to the games, although
mainly only in passing. For example, Umbrella,
the company is used, some of the monsters are used,
and there are zombies aplenty as well.
plot is quite nice and the twist is done very
well. special effects are also very nice, and
again used very nicely, and are well integrated into
the film. The acting isn't too bad, but could
have been better, although the computer game doesn't
have that much dialogue to compare too.
a good action/horror film, with the cast being cut
down to size fairly early on in the film.
paced, with plenty off bullet filled action, and
some nice personal interaction, you actually get to
like some of the characters, before they die, and in
some cases come back again.
worth a watch, whether you like or play the
computer games, I'm giving this film 3 out of 5
as it's as good as Minority Report but still not
as well acted as Spider-Man.
