One of my guilty pleasures is Resident Evil, a film which I think is really nicely done. Seeing Michelle Rodriguez move like a cold beast in this film gives me joy (the character embodied by the actress turns into a zombie in the film, note). These are the statements that are likely to please Paul W.S. Anderson, the director of this first adaptation on the big screen of the Capcom series.
