Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: True to series form, plot is nearly indiscernible, but this fourth installment in the sci-fi/horror/action franchise created by writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson is the sleekest so far, thanks to 3D and star Milla Jovovich's body-hugging catsuit.

Rotten: Jovovich remains the lone light in the increasingly lackluster videogame-based zombie franchise, which barrels through its fourth installment with a threatened fifth on the way.
- Andrew Barker, Variety, Saturday, September 11, 2010
Rotten: Like pretty much all of Anderson's films, this one is half-baked. The half that's baked isn't too bad, though.

Resident Evil Matrix more like. With some decent set pieces but too much cartoony CGI this could be the best of the Res Evil live action movies, but still sucks balls. And is nothing compared to the excellent Resident Evil Degeneration.

Neat 3D-effects, but the rest is just a soulless and draggy display of Paul W.S. Anderson's lack of talent. With its annoying techno-rock soundtrack and redundant use of slow-motion, the whole movie just feels like one long music video. Except, the difference is, a music video has much more of a plot (which should tell you something about quality of the script here). The characters are all one-dimensional stereotypes and not even the zombies - which are supposed to be the highlight of the film - look very good. Not to mention all the Matrix-derivative action, which has already been done to death by now. It wasn't entirely bad, as I was still somewhat entertained. But as a whole, this is little more than a waste of the technology at its disposal.

You will enjoy this more if you have been following as a fan the films and enjoy the romper stomper characters and overly apocalyptic theme. I am sure if you don't fit this category then you might just find the story well and truely predictable and the characters extremely stereotypical, but on the other hand if your viewing pleasure is not ruled by the bible of film critics then this might shine to your liking and you visit the previous films, although caution should be taken, none of them differ very much in plot. After been blown away for the trailer in 3D I was slightly disapointed where as I had the impression this film would be 3D through and through, it was nearly, but just a yard short.
