The fans were excited to give this one a watch as it focused on the many characters and locations of the real video game and the time when the zombies outbreak began in the city. Still, despite it, the movie lacks solid terror scenes that were experienced while playing the game.
However, the movie has been faithful enough to replicate the scenes from the video game, like the initial most reveal of a zombie in Spencer Mansion. Recreation of the Spencer Mansion and Raccoon Police Station has also been done incredibly that left the video game lovers all the way pumped up, and they felt like being in the game itself.
However, despite these portrayals, movies come down to be a work of an ill script that fails to level up the terror that was experienced while playing the game. Also, being a combination of the first two Resident Evil games, the movie is strangely overcooked yet undercooked as well at the same time. Individual characters seem to have no time for their bring out their roles as the story has a lot to tell and display.
