The year of the trilogies adds Resident Evil to it's already full pantheon (following the disappointments that were "Spider Man", "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "Shrek"). Whereas the previous film went in an over the top direction that left everyone scratching their heads, the main person behind these films, British helmer Paul W. S. Anderson, tries an apocalyptic look and feel for this venture. The film ends up being far more entertaining than the previous and with some cool action set pieces prepares the entry for another sequel. Where will the story of Alice lead her...
