Resident Evil easily outscreams recent scary movies. Most horror movies havent been noteworthy lately. Such unpopular movies, including Queen of the Damned, were a joke. No one remembers Valentine or Thirteen Ghosts due to the brevity of their popularity. However, what separates Resident Evil from the rest is that this story not only has an intriguing plot, but a good one at that. The movies story mixes curiosity with edge-of-your-seat thrills. The central plot of this movie revolves around a large corporation that secretly produces viral and biological weapons. Something goes wrong in one of the corporations facilities and there is an outbreak of a virus that has some interesting effects on the living. A fresh cast of actors and actresses goes in to assess and take care of the damage and finds out what went wrong but they wind up getting more than they bargained for. The producers use sound effects and camera angles wisely. The special effects are semi-believable, but this movies claim to fame is found in its suspenseful and engaging film tactics. It keeps the audience glued to the seat with exciting drama. Overall, I think this was a surprisingly entertaining movie. I was thoroughly thrilled by the end of it. Even though some of the story is short of believable, such as the monsters, it is easy to get wrapped up in the fantasy of the plot. What impressed me the most about this movie was the fresh cast. With the exception of Milla Jovovich, most of the cast members were no-names, but all of them did a surprising job of instilling tremendous emotions in the crowd. You know a cast is doing a superior job when someone in the audience lets out a gut-wrenching scream. Go see the movie and I guarantee that you will definitely be entertained and thrilled by this suspenseful new flick.
