* BaseBreaker: LJ is either an offensive EthnicScrappy or else someone who's ActuallyPrettyFunny.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Jill Valentine. Be honest, you wanted ''her'' to be the protagonist.
* IdiotPlot: Umbrella kills the population of an entire city just so they can find out who would win in a fight between Alice and Nemesis. Even better, they cover up their nuclear strike with a story about a nuclear power plant melting down, because somebody at Umbrella apparently thinks that a catastrophic nuclear meltdown isn't going to be investigated by the U.S. government.
* JustHereForGodzilla: Many saw the movie simply to see Nemesis blasting people away with a minigun and say his CatchPhrase "STARS".
* {{Sequelitis}}: The first film is recognized as a decent thriller that, while different from the games, is still good and watchable. This, however, marks Alice's turn into GodModeSue and an overall step down in quality.
* TookTheBadFilmSeriously: Sienna Guillory spent lots of time studying Jill's movements from the game and putting a lot of effort into her role. Notably on the DVD commentary, she keeps things serious while Creator/MillaJovovich and Oded Fehr are goofing off.
