"After narrowly escaping the horrors of the underground Hive facility, Alice (Milla Jovovich) is quickly thrust back into a war raging above ground between the living and the Undead.

It's a heart-pounding race against time as the group faces off against hordes of blood-thirsty zombies, stealthy Lickers, mutant canines and the most sinister foe yet.

Written and produced by the visionary director of Resident Evil, Paul W.S. Andersons (Alien vs. Predator and director by Alexander Witt, Resident Evil: Apocalypse is a superior sci-fi suspense sequel." - from DVD Pacific

My oppinion:
I was a bit unsure about what genre I should put this in, as it's more of an action Sci-Fi film then a horror movie, but as it's got zombies, I ended up putting it in the horror selection.. So, what can I say about this one? Well, just like the first Resident Evil movie, I found this one to be a lot of fun. It's action packed and the quick pace makes sure you don't really care about the thin plot and lack of originality when it comes to the script. The zombies look nice enough, and I like the fact that they're a bit slow, which is the way I prefer them to behave. After The Fifth Element, I've become a fan of Milla Jovovich. She just looks great! The acting is decent enough as well, considering what they've got to work with. I know a lot of people hate the two Resident Evil movies, but in my opinion, they're great for what they are; mindless, highly entertaining and over the top action flicks, and I recommend them if you're into that sort of thing!
