My Review


I have to say that this was one of the really good Zombie movies I had ever seen growing up. And well when I said I was doing a Zombie Week and that I was adding three movies to the line up of reviews.  My husband was very happy that I chose these.  So this one is deff great for both guys and girls.  I would say that older teens would be fine watching this one.  Younger kids if they can handle it. My now 10 year old has watched these for a while with no issues.  



Go Into This One Knowing

Lots of fighting in this one and people dying!  So keep that I'm mind that this one is so not the heart warming teen story like Warm Bodies.  I would have to say that for the three movies that I put on here. It would go Warm Bodies, World War Z, then Resident Evil for the age rating.

Resident Evil received a 33% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, based on 123 reviews.[42] Robert K. Elder from the Chicago Tribune stated that the film "updates the zombie genre with an anti-corporate message while still scaring its audience and providing heart-pounding action",[42]while Owen Gleiberman from Entertainment Weekly noted that the film is as "impersonal in its relentlessness as the video-game series that inspired it."[42]
Both Resident Evil and the sequel appear on Roger Ebert's most hated films list, published in 2005.[43] In the review of Resident Evil, Ebert describes the film as a zombie movie set in the 21st century where "large metallic objects make crashing noises just by being looked at", and criticizes the dialogue for being a series of commands and explanations with no "small talk".[44]

I;ve seen most of these movies. I enjoyed them.

I have only seen a few of those movies... like... maybe 3? I see them when I see them but I don't look them out to watch them now.

I've seen all of these, I hated the last installment though. I really liked Mia Jovovich. I liked the movies otherwise though. Thanks for sharing.
