RESIDENT EVIL: APOCALYPSE aka Resident Evil 2 ( 2004 )
This received a vicious response when it opened in theaters, which automatically lowered my expectations. Milla Jovovich returns to kick some biologically mutated zombie patoot in a sequel that amounts to more of the same. If you liked the first, as I did, you’ll be okay with that. Ridiculous, but being based on a video game gives it that right. There is barely any dialogue because the action is so non-stop. The corporate-science engineered virus has infected the city and a forgettable team assemble with Jovovich to hatch an escape plan. The action is good and not so static that you have a hard time keeping up. The effects are strong and passably gross. Jovovich’s fleeting nipples aside, this is a giddy, dumb popcorn movie that kept me entertained.
