Resident Evil ★★ 2002 (R)

Yet another noisy movie adapted from a video-game, which never gets as creepy as a zombie movie should. Umbrella Corp. (AKA the Hive) is the front for a secret military tech and genetics operations. Its security operations are controlled by a known as the Red Queen, which instigates a series of defensive measures to contain a virus (that can reanimate the dead) that has been released. A group of containment specialists (including heroine babe Jovanovich) are sent in and have to battle workers who have been contaminat- ed and turned into flesh-munching crea- tures. 100m/C VHS, DVD, Blu-ray Disc, UMD .
