Ok it's been bugging me since I played Resident Evil since Playstation Console until the PC Version. Then the movie has come out, well I don't know how the protagonist of the movie isn't shown in the games' canon. So I conclude that this movie series is different from the Game Franchise. What are your thought from this movie?

Hollywood often changes the way things are depicted in the movies. If you have ever read a book and seen the movie based on the book you will see when the screenwriters take liberties with the original idea. Sometimes it makes the movie better, but often it makes it worse. In the case of Resident Evil, I like the woman they have in the movies. I think the character is very charismatic and interesting to watch, but at least they have kept some of the elements from the game in the movie, and that's all you can really hope for.

Well, this movie didn't murdered the canon afterall. And I forgot about freedom of changing one's story. Well, it is watchable. And not marked as a worst movie. LOL

I think the game and the movie both have their merits, but if I had to choose I always go with the original. I can't wait for games to pass the level of cinema when it comes to graphics. The thing I hate about movies is they give me no control over them. In a game you can control the action and it just makes it more entertaining.

Yeah, I think a mylot member told me that the protagonist in the movie is not really that main in the games.. Even Jill had a bigger part.. but i have not played any resident evil game. I wonder why they changed it..

Probably the Whole production team changed it for the sake of making the series more unpredictable than the games Canon. I know there are sometimes that this movie disappointed me but hey this is way better than some E.T. or Fairy tale stories.

I haven't watched Resident Evil but what my friends told that it different from the games released and it's quiet boring, watch it if you are only interested in some stupid action. The action is quiet bit like some one else is playing games, you have to sit and watch without getting hands on to joystick. After hearing that, I thought of not watching the film ...
