What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Zane Henry Fun for fans of the genre, but nothing groundbreaking.
Jacques Liebenberg Middelmatige vermaak.
Kevin Crust Movie for zombie fans.
Nils van der Linden Still can't quite match the no-nonsense excitement and breathless pace of the unexpectedly accomplished original film
|Mail & Guardian|

Annette Bayne Resident Evil fans may enjoy this latest instalment from a gamers' point of view but there are times when a joystick console would have saved it from becoming dull.
Ivan Sadler There can't possibly be an audience for something this dull and predictable, can there?
Paul Arendt The Resident Evil console games are standard setters in the survival horror genre, so it's a pity (though not exactly a shock) that the resulting movies are so stale.
Adam Nayman The multiplicity of Jovovichs makes for the film’s one memorable image. The rest is all chunky CGI gore, hilariously solemn exposition, and limp genre references.
With no one to care about, and the action and bloodletting becoming repetitive, this quickly becomes a bore, causing one to wish it would suffer the same fate as many a zombie within it, and thus hopefully put an end to this lackluster franchise.
Tomatometer The few impressive action sequences can't make up for the pedestrian plot.
