Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004)

When it's over, the infected rise and fall in this good follow up to the video game turned film, Resident Evil. The T-Virus has found its way above ground in Raccoon City.  In order to escape the city, Alice (Milla Jovovich) and a group of survivors must find and save the child of the virus's creator. There is a good mix of new characters, including a tough girl cop (Sienna Gillory), a fast talking pimp (Mike Epps), and a soldier (Oded Fehr). This is a must see for RE fans, but not necessary for interested viewers, because the film quickly recaps the events of the first film. You can expect the usual zombie mayhem and individual elimination process amongst the uninfected. Most notable scene takes place at the end, when Alice must face-off with her old friend (from RE), who has mutated into an unstoppable killing machine/soldier with all the skills and strength of T-Virus enhancements. 

My rating: 3 out of 5
