    Resident Evil: Apocalypse 2004

    ★★ Watched 23 Sep, 2016

    Two films deep and I can already tell these are to zombies what Fast & Furious is to cars. Abnormally long-lasting series that are loud, proud and without apology. It's no wonder you can find Michelle Rodriguez - and by all accounts, both dead...and back from the dead - in both series.

The way they go about capturing the Old West linguistics and dialects and transplant them into unique and unusual accents of characters is an absolute treat to experience and in the process, transplants the viewer…
