The Five Worst Movies Based on Video Games
Directed by: Paul W. S. Anderson, Alexander Witt, Russell Mulcahy
The Resident Evil series is by far the most lucrative of all video game movie adaptations. The five films have collectively brought in $897 million worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo. The problem is that these movies have never been good. Because of their success, they won't go away -- but they've gotten progressively worse over the years, even as their budgets increased.
There's only so many ways Alice can kill the undead. What was badass in the first one or two films becomes expected by the fifth. The Umbrella Corporation has existed through five films and still can't seem to understand that engineering a zombie apocalypse might not be good for business. But audiences still can't manage their massive hard-on for zombies, and a sixth film is planned.
