Guest Post – Resident Evil (2002) Review
Plot : A virus has escaped in a secret facility called “The Hive,” turning the staff (Umbrella Corporation) into flesh eating zombies, which causes the complex computer (The Red Queen) to shutdown the base to prevent the spread of the infection. A military task force is sent in to shut down the main computer and quarantine the deadly virus. What they don’t know is that they must fight their way past all the zombies, mutants, and the computer itself , before the virus escapes and infects the rest of the world. Will the team make it out alive? Review : I know how much Diana loves zombies so this review is for her, thank you for allowing me to guest blog on your site! This film can arguably be one of the best zombie movies ever made. I’ve always been a big fan of this franchise and you can credit the first movie for that. The film was great and really got you into everything that was going on and left you wanting more. Lets start out with the acting, Mila Jovovich and her supporting cast all did an amazing job in this film, it was honestly an excellent all around acting performance. The story couldn’t get any better then the one that they wrote, it was entertaining and gave us some great thrills, with a little bit of a mystery vibe. I say mystery vibe because throughout the film Alice sees flashbacks and it just makes you wonder why she is seeing these things and how it will impact this movie later on.
Now in order for a horror movie to be successful, it needs to have some good scares, which is exactly what this film provides. You can get scared by just looking at the zombies, honestly they’re creepy and disgusting. The mutant creatures including the dogs were absolutely terrifying, the makeup for this movie was very impressive and extremely well done. There really weren’t that many kills but the kill scenes were crazy and were absolutely gory. This is such a gruesome movie and you have to love that. There were also plenty of bad ass scenes that had us wishing that we had some of Alice’s crazy powers. I wish I could kick some ass like her!
Overall I absolutely loved this film and think that it is the best zombie movie to ever come out. I know some people may disagree, but you really have to appreciate this film, especially since this movie has made the numerous amount of video games become successful because of this film. The acting and story in this movie were great and can really keep the viewers on the edge of their seats. The horror and thrill in this movie was at an all time high, if you don’t get scared at least once I would be surprised. The best thing about the film has to be the makeup, everything was very well done, which allowed the zombies and mutants to be as scary as they can be. I honestly have no complaints about this amazing film. If you haven’t seen this movie yet I absolutely recommend that you go watch it. You wont regret it! The film is a must watch!!
I give this movie a 10/10
