Ranking the Resident Evil movies from best to worst

ADVERTISEMENT

If one thing is clear, is that the Resident Evil movies are some of the most popular B-movie blockbusters in Hollywood history, and have millions of fans worldwide. And given that the soon to be released Resident Evil: The Final Chapter will be the last movie in the franchise according to director Paul W.S. Anderson, it’s certainly time to look back at this entire movie series.

So which of these movies is the best, and which the worst? Given that millions of viewers worldwide have enjoyed the Resident Evil movies to date this will be a matter of passionate debate for sure, and while each film certainly has its merits, in the end, only one can be the best. So here follows a list of the Resident Evil movies, ranked from best to worst.

1. Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004)

Resident Evil: Apocalypse takes place in fictional Raccoon City instead of the more confined research facility setting of the original, and manages to outdo Paul W.S. Anderson’s original movie, packing more action and thrills into its running time than the first movie did. Producer Paul Anderson handed over the reins to director Alexander Witt for this Resident Evil instalment, and the result was a big success and arguably the best movie in the series to date.

Of course, Milla Jovovich also looked great in this Resident Evil sequel, whether riding a bike, repelling down a building or dealing with monstrous enemies in a spectacular action sequence taking place in a church. Other cast performers were just as great, such as Oded Fehr as an Umbrella soldier and Mike Epps as LJ, who brings some great comic relief to this movie. Also Jared Harris as Dr. Ashford, a scientist desperately searching for his daughter in Raccoon City, caused a great impression in a movie that certainly offered everything to please fans of the zombie genre.
