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.

Posted Image I know, I always have to make a conscious effort to hold the laughter in as the whole scene is pretty absurd.

Although, I will probably see the movie, and will withhold final judgment until I've actually seen it.

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?

Hey, I liked that part! Posted Image

As a big fan of quality cheeseball horror, I am definitely looking forward to this one! I'll see it a few days before it comes out, so I'll let you know if my high hopes were dashed or not... Posted Image

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 Posted Image.

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...

Man, you also forgot Event Horizon which means it will suck ass guaranteed or your money back. Posted Image

I hope this film bombs worse than Screen Gems' last effort Slackers. First, they fired George A. Romero. You're trying to make one of the best zombie films of all time and you fire the only person who can make a great zombie film? Not only that, but you replace him with some no talented hack like Paul Anderson? The only reason to see this film now is to see how hot Milla Jovovich can look when she's kicking ass.

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! Posted Image

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.
