    Looks pretty suck-full to me. I can't help but laugh when I see the cheap slow-mo of Milla Jovovich kicking the dog.

    The trailer and the commercials look terrible. But being a fan of the video game series, I'll probably go see it. It couldn't be worse than Street Fighter: The Movie... could it?

    Well, Res Evil is my all-time favorite game series, but the reason I like it is because it's cheeseball horror with violent zombie smackdown [​IMG].
    Surely this movie can at least deliver that much... I know Paul Anderson's not the best director on the planet, but he did do Mortal Kombat, which I also liked in that uber-cheesy way. So, if it's MK quality, I'm satisfied.
    Like they say, it's a video game based movie, so go in expecting nothing, so you can be surprised if they give you something.
    It can't be worse than any recent horror flicks...

    Mortal Kombat sucked on many levels IMO.

    I have hope for RE. Early screening reviews were positive and I have been thinking about why the other game movies were bad. FF was bad because it had very little to nothing to do with the games, and Tomb Raider sucked because while it was only connected to the games by the Lara Croft character, it worked in the same vein (run, jump, shoot, repeat) and was very similar. Mortal Kombat killed off all the bad guys and put a storyline to a game that didn't have a storyline (and was pretty badly written). Street Fighter...well....sucked.

    So if RE:

    1) Has no direct story connections

    2) Has no character connections

    3) Works in the same vein, but not too close

    4) Is coherent

    Then it should be good enough. If its well written, not too cheesy, and very violent, then it will be great.

    I think the trailers and commercials look pretty good.

    Is it going to disappoint me? Of course not. It's impossible to be disappointed when I expect the movie to suck! [​IMG]

    Isn't there a nude scene in this little suck ass movie. Hey, Mortal Kombat was a decent movie, now part 2 and Street Fighter really sucked. Acording to a magazine, there will be no connection with the game other than the title and the characters, since the director did not want us to know the ending already.
