3D films these days have become so common, but Resident Evil was one that definitely outdid the others when it came to its special effects; its storyline however, not too much (but again, who goes for these films for their storyline?).
Resident Evil had some awesome effects, and watching it in 3D as compared to 2D, will make a huge difference for those of you who do decide to go for it. Though I am not a huge fan of aliens and weird creatures, I have to say I did enjoy the few screams they got out of me and the rush that they caused! It had been a while since I had seen a worthwhile scary movie (although I would classify this movie as scary, just gruesome at some parts).
The story was pretty mediocre. The usual, as expected. Good guy, bad guy stuff. Though the movie was a little below 2 hours, I could feel it dragging a little (or maybe that was because the ending was expected). The acting wasnt to fantastic either, the action I would say was, for all you action buffs! There was plenty of blood and gore to keep those who enjoyed such movies entertained.
I would say that Resident Evil is worth a watch just for its effects! Make sure you go with someone who is willing to let you squeeze their hand is you are as big of a darpok as I am!
