The Resident Evil series has always surpassed expectation and have been amazing games, full of tense, suspense and scares. They try to emulate this same atmosphere and effect throughout the Resident Evil films, but only manage it in a few places: these tend to focus more on the action and Milla Jovovich (of Fifth Element Fame) kicking undead ass. The films are good in parts but also lacking in others, but still a good enjoyable viewing. As the story progresses, so do the characters and there abilities, going from superhuman zombie slasher to human pussycat dolls. Whilst there are some suspenseful moments and occasionally a nail-biting part, the series is lacking the character and feature of the games. Also, only a few characters from the games appear in the films, such as Carlos, Chris and Claire, but as a long term Resi fan, i was a bit disappointed. Its worthy viewing every once in a while though, and with the new Resident Evil: Retribution film having been released, expect another box set available soon.
