Something rotten is brewing beneath the industrial mecca known as Raccoon City. Unknown to its millions of residents, a huge underground bioengineering facility known as The Hive has accidentally unleashed the deadly and mutating T-virus, killing all of its employees. To contain the leak, the governing supercomputer, Red Queen, has sealed all entrances and exits. Now a team of highly-trained super commandos including Rain (Michelle Rodriguez - The Fast and the Furious, Girlfight), Alice (Milla Jovovich - The Fifth Element) and Matt (Eric Mabius - Cruel Intentions) must race to penetrate The Hive in order to isolate the T-virus before it overwhelms humanity. To do so, they must get past the Red Queen's deadly defenses, face the flesh-eating undead employees, fight killer mutant dogs and battle The Licker, a genetically mutated savage beast whose strength increases with each of its slain victims.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: An already thin story boils down to surviving invaders seeking an existent anti-virus. If only there were one for this kind of movie.
Rotten: Despite a promising setup, pic never really goes anywhere, instead immersing viewers in a kinetic onslaught of flesh (namely, that of Milla Jovovich) and flesh-eaters (most of the rest of the cast).
Rotten: It all looks and plays like a $40 million version of a game you're more likely to enjoy on a computer.
Rotten: The movie is Dawn of the Dead crossed with John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars, with zombies not as ghoulish as the first and trains not as big as the second.
WOOT! First Review!
Ok....BY FAR ONE OF THE BEST HORROR FILMS EVER MADE! Milla Jovovich is a sexy actress and plays a perfect roll for this movie. For 2002 the special effects are amazing...and the acting was great. This movie is always on Sci-Fi...but I recommend buying it. Definetly the best out of the three.
I Love This...Er, Genre
I Wouldn't Say Its A Horror Movie, Yet I'm Not Saying Its Not. This (Along With Underworld, Van Helsing And More) Is A Strange Combination Of Horror, Action, & SciFi. If Someone Asked Me What Genre It Is I Would Probably Say Horror. Horror Is Supposed To Scare You. This Makes You Say "Holy Crap This Is Cool." Either Way Awesome Movie.
I've Been Waiting for This!
Thanks for adding this one!!! Great movie!
