Witt Plays the Game
Raccoon City is in the midst of turmoil as the blood thirsty infected are back and taking down the population with a rampant fervour as the Umbrella Corporation seal the place off. In the midst of all this is Jill Valentine (Sienna Guillory) and Carlos Oliveira (Oded Fehr) along with a small group who are uninfected battling to stay that way. Fortunately there is also Alice (Milla Jovovich) who has woken not only to discover those she thought she had annihilated have returned but that she has been genetically enhanced to have new strengths. Now Alice and this small group of survivors must rage war and find a way of escaping before the Umbrella Corporation flicks the switch and wipes them as well as Raccoon City of the planet once and for all.
So you're playing a video game where you are this hot chick with big guns and you need to make your way out of a city full of infected beings whilst helping a few civilians. Sounds sort of fun but is it as much fun when you watch someone else playing the game whilst you are waiting for your turn to come knowing full well that the person playing is most likely going to finish the game. Nope it isn't as much fun and in a way that is what it is like to watch "Resident Evil: Apocalypse" a video game being played by someone else who is having the fun whilst you watch on.
Now in fairness "Resident Evil: Apocalypse" is entertaining as watching a sexy woman who can handle weapons kicking monster and the living dead butt in over the top and over stylish ways is still good. But "Resident Evil: Apocalypse" isn't a movie to make you think it is simply hot woman kicking butt over and over again and whilst director Alexander Witt makes it stylish. I suppose there are the machinations of the Umbrella Corporation but it doesn't add much to the story nor does that involving the reuse of a young girl because the story is not the focus. The focus is simply Milla Jovovich as Alice being kick butt hot along with Sienna Guillory being the same.
What this all boils down to is that "Resident Evil: Apocalypse" is entertaining but only in a don't need to think just want hot action women kicking butt sort of way.
