They're just dumb fun.
Sometimes they're one of the other and sometimes they're both.

And the last one had the added bonus of bringin' Michelle Rodriguez back.

I'm glad they brought back Jill Valentine. She totally stole the show in the second one.

I can't stand Jill Valentine, mainly because Sienna Guillory's American accent sucks.

Re: Why are Resident Evil Films Successful?

I think the 3rd one is easily the worst and 5th one feels stupid. I think one and two are the best with four close behind. None of them are really great movies, but they can be fun.

I really think the super powers rune the movies, and the ending to the fifth one....yeah...

Meh, people arent dumb because they like these movies.

To answer teh question, they have a good lead who plays an interesting enough character and the films are generally enjoyable.

Do they actually stick close to the game's storys etc? Dont really know, only played snippets of the games. But even if they dont, the films are fun.
