    "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider is by far one of the best video game to movie adaptations! I felt like the movie really did the game justice and any video game fan will be impressed with this take on the game."

    "Resident Evil was a good game that spawned a long franchise. Part of that is the Resident Evil movie. I'm not sure how many there are as of now, but I fondly remember the first. It deviated from the source material but was still highly enjoyable, especially for a video game movie. Where the movie made its own story rather than a retelling of the game really set it apart and it totally earned the series that came after it."

    "there is some good acting to be watched here but the overall arc and story a=leave a lot to be desired especially if you are a fan of the games like I am. I see lots of plot holes and things that just do not make sense with the overall story of the games. It can be too big of a departure from cannon."

    "Like most movies based on video games, this movie sucks, but at least it can serve as some "so bad it's hilarious" entertainment. If you've seen the other movies in the franchise, then you know the drill with this one: Umbrella Corp. is up to no good, zombies are running amok, a female protagonist must fight against them, yadda yadda yadda... It's all here, and it's all decent fun if you have nothing better to do on a boring weekend afternoon. However, I can't exactly give a strong recommendation to it, either."

    "It was a decent end to the movie franchise but it wasn't that great. This movie series has progressively gone downhill. The beginning doesn't really continue from the previous movie. It leaves you wondering what happened between the last movie and this one. "
