** The behavior of the Red Queen. Instead of immediately explaining to the team exactly why she took the steps she did and why they must not cut power (remember the zombie in the flooded area - she could certainly direct them to it to prove what she's saying), and holding attacking them as a reserve move, she attacks immediately - making later attempts to talk to them useless because they will no longer trust her.

* CriticalResearchFailure: Hair and nails don't keep growing after death. This wouldn't be so bad if one of the human characters said it, but a supercomputer making the same mistake is a different story.

* FirstInstallmentWins: The general consensus is that the first movie is the only one that manages to be decent, due to a variety of reasons. To name a few: Alice wasn't ridiculously overpowered, the movie didn't go overboard on action, there was virtually no relation with the games' canon and yet it managed to do a pretty faithful job of capturing the spirit of the games. ''Apocalypse'' throws all that out of the window and imports several characters from the games and makes them unrecognizable, makes Alice an unbeatable super-human who steals all the spotlight and tries to connect with the games' canon by basing itself on ''[=RE3=]'''s storyline.

* {{Sequelitis}}: The first film does a pretty good job of capturing the essence of the franchise albeit with it's own original characters. Aside from a couple bits of baddassery from Alice(and the squad leader, both of which being highly trained combatants) that in hindsight wouldn't feel out-of-place in RE4, the characters's abilities are pretty realistic and the film generally focuses on the dreadful atmosphere the games are known for. After that, Alice gets increasingly more powerful, killing off any potential drama, becomes pretty much the ''only'' character who gets to be badass, and the series ramps up the action to exaggeratedly cartoonish levels, basically ripping off the physics-defying stunts in ''Film/TheMatrix'' without any of that film series' in-story justifications. The critical response to the films dipped after the first movie as well.

* FirstInstallmentWins: The general consensus is that the first movie is the only one that doesn't suck, due to a variety of reasons. To name a few: Alice wasn't ridiculously overpowered, the movie didn't go overboard on action, there was virtually no relation with the games' canon aside from Umbrella and the fact an outbreak had occurred within one of their labs, a mention of the Nemesis Project, etc. ''Apocalypse'' throws all that out of the window and imports several characters from the games and makes them unrecognizable, makes Alice an unbeatable super-human who steals all the spotlight and tries to connect with the games' canon by basing itself on ''[=RE3=]'''s storyline.

* {{Sequelitis}}: The first film at least tries somewhat to resemble the franchise even if it is with original characters. After that, Alice gets increasingly more powerful, killing off any potential drama, and ramps up the action to exaggeratedly cartoonish levels, basically ripping off the physics-defying stunts in ''Film/TheMatrix'' without any of that film series' in-story justifications.

* VideoGameMoviesSuck: Zigzagged; they're disliked by critics and many fans of the games, but they do well at the box office. In addition, some fans of the games have a soft spot for the movies in spite of how loosely-based they are.
