You’d think that I, the guy who was instrumental in the building of Resident Evil World at UGO, would’ve actually seen the movies. Well, it doesn’t always work like that. But I watched this for the first time the other day and was surprised at how not-awful it was.
Yes, the story is asinine and the storytelling is atrocious (who are these people? what do they all want?) but in terms of action, it is just fine. I say with respect that Paul W. S. Anderson is one of the best hack directors working today. His movies are crap, but they are always watchable and never boring. Hats off.
