What are the best Resident Evil movies?

While the idea of movies getting adapted to video games is quite common, film adaptations of video games are also a thing. It all started in 1993 when the Hollywood movie industry turned a famous video game into a motion picture. In case you didn’t know, it was the Super Mario Bros. movie which was adapted from Nintendo’s Mario, a video game franchise. Although the movie adaptation was reported to be unsuccessful, that doesn’t mean that other video game movies would turn out bad. So, if you’re not yet convinced that great video game movie adaptations exist, then you clearly haven’t seen the Resident Evil live-action film series. These film series are based on Capcom’s survival horror video game series. The first of its series was released in 2002, and the entire series features six movies. Milla Jovovich became a well-known actress for taking on the lead role as she portrays Alice in all six films. The film director Paul W.S. Anderson has also become part of the beginning up to the end of the last live-action film. In fact, he was the writer, director, and producer in four out of six movies. The following movies include the first in the film series, the fourth which is the Resident Evil: Afterlife, the fifth, also known as the Retribution, and the sixth or The Final Chapter.

    "I really enjoy the Resident Evil franchise. While I like that they differ from the games and have their own story, I was super excited that Apocalypse introduced Jill Valentine from the game series. She is a little different, but looks remarkably like her game model. With the inclusion of a familiar character and the awesome zombies this quickly became top of my list for these movies."

    "Resident Evil is another great example of a good video game to movie adaptation. I felt that the movie had just the right amount of action and they didn't change the story up too incredibly much and I found that really enjoyable. This is something that I could easily sit down and watch multiple times."

    "This movie is more apocalyptic than the previous two. The world is a barren wasteland and Alice has been in hiding. This movie shows how she goes from being a lonely nomad to taking on the ones who created her. It was action packed and my entire family enjoyed it."

    "The Final Chapter (Resident Evil) is a video game movie based on the classic Resident Evil games. It's an okay set of movies, but leaves fans of the franchise wanting more out of it. I recommend renting this one before committing to purchasing it, if possible."

    "I have watched every Resident Evil movie and this one is by far the best. The action and acting is so much better in this one than the second and I would recommend watching it in 3D if it's available."
