  • Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City is an affectionately faithful adaptation that further proves its source material is ill-suited to the big screen.

    This brand of minimalism is harder than it looks: with so much stripped away, everything that remains needs to have the exact right weight. Raccoon City suffers a major loss of momentum around halfway, and never entirely recovers.

    Doesn't do its own thing, and it does the old thing very badly.
