Instead of making a movie based of the game "Resident Evil", I can't find one bad reason for the game "Half-Life" not to have a movie based on it. "Half-Life" really fits to be a movie. It's about the same: a secret underground lab, zombies, mutantes etc, but it's better, more interesting and the most important thing: it's a lot more famous than "Resident Evil" and there's no doubt it'll be more successful. Ever since watching "Resident Evil - The Movie" I dream about "Half-Life: The Movie".
Though I didn't like this movie, I surely hope this game is a start for new movies based on pc/playstation games.
It doesn't help this film that zombie movies in general are difficult to take seriously these days, unless the zombies are tounge-in-cheek. But Resident Evil is fun and slightly scary. Just remember that this is derivative, not original, filmmaking and that you too can own this DVD for less than full price. That would be the justification for actually owning it.
