This movie was nothing but randomly showing characters / locations / puzzle items from the games hoping that fans would like it and the story points go minute by minute before they cut to another story plot with the wrong characters at the wrong place . “ how the hell did no body notice Lisa Trevor get all the PD keys before there was even a single zombie “ just a straight up we don’t care cash grab .

I think they tried to put the two games together in one movie and they cut out a lot of interesting things from the game and it also felt rushed the story.

As a RE fan from the first game all the way to today, it was nice but could have been better. Clearly a love for the series is noticable but I feel Sony forced them to make "modern" changes. All the male characters were made stupid and had to be saved by women, Leon was the worst. Great for Easter eggs and the set designer was A1. Rest was meh, you can wait for a stream

Knew this movie was not goinna live up to expectations since it is driven from like 4 RE games. The source material is too all over the place. Miscast of all characters. No original character traits. So laughable when it shouldn't be and where it is intentional, they do ok 75% of the time. The "horror survival" actions were nice but then you remember it's all wrong. Watch it only if you're not familiar with RE games, then play games. I hope this movie gets hated so bad, that someone who actually knows the franchise who's to reboot the way they did Spiderman. and they want us to think there's a sequel. and the missing characters......so awful

I got disappointed from the actors and the actresses role in the movie because most of the things that we saw has nothing to do with the story and the most stupid part is that when they made Leon as a funny character I'm being stupid

So I would start off by saying I have no idea why anyone is hating on this movie. Resident Evil Welcome to Racoon City is amazing, creepy, dorky in all the right ways, and frankly just an amazing realization of the games in movie form. There were one or two cast choices I did not agree with but otherwise the casting and script was spot on. The action, dorky humor, as well as the horror were all amazing. All the camera angles and anything that seems awkward is all clearly intentional. The dorky long zoom in scenes really capture the awkward nature of Resident Evil in all the right ways. Honestly, don't take my word for it, just give it a watch and be honest about what the old Resident Evil games actually were. The old games were dorky, fun, a little eerie at times, but overall just charming, which is what this movie truly accomplishes.

Missing out on major plot points! Wring characters paired together! Leon was such a wuss which is furating! However if you don't know the games then it was fantastic! I want more

This movie is worth watching if you're a fan of the Resident evil games. It retcons a lot of the characters that we know and love, and the story is different from the games which creates continuity errors. My biggest disappointment was with Leon's character who is wasted away as an important character and is used instead as a laughing gag; it's not in a good way either. The casting choice and character personalities are subpar, but I was impressed with the set pieces. They were really cool and immersive, and you can tell that a lot of the money went toward it. It is still a fun film for RE fans because it incorporates characters from the games, and is closer to the storyline than the Paul Anderson films. However, there definitely should've been improvements to those two aspects.

This is the one and only Resident Evil that everyone should avoid, such garbage filled with profanity, and blasphemy, and bad acting. I don’t live everyday cursing or if there’s an excuse to curse in one day.

I had a lot of hope that it would do better than the original live action movies but to me it was worse. Still a fun movie to see with friends tho.

The RE movie franchise was an absolute favorite of mine. This one, however, felt rushed and was missing a lot. It was ok, but I wish they had done more. I would have waited for better.

Just cause you put beloved characters in a movie doesn’t mean that we’ll automatically care for them. You gotta make us like them and interesting. I’d rather re-watch the mortal kombat movie then this.

If you're a fan of the series, it's a great movie. Much better than the Anderson Saga. The pacing is great to start, but is a little rushed near the end. Plenty of humor to lighten the mood, but the action scenes are tense and scary. I was super impressed with the zombies, especially the itchy tasty part.

If indeed this is a full on franchise reboot, this “origin story” is no Welcome to Raccoon City at all. It’s a warning to avoid ever coming back.

It’s not terrible as far as video game adaptations go, but as with many of them you’ll be wondering what the point is when a superior experience already exists.

Whatever the flaws of the previous Resident Evil series, those films were never as dull as Raccoon City. Roberts doesn't seem to know how to milk anything resembling genuine horror out of the material here.
