Idiot Plot: 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.
Sequelitis: The first film is recognized as a decent action-thriller that, while different from the games, is still entertainingly watchable and doesn't go out of its way to step on the games' canon. This, however, marks Alice's turn into God-Mode Sue, aggressive alteration of the source material's plot and characters to the point that both make even less sense in the film's context, and an overall step down in quality.
Took the Bad Film Seriously: 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 Milla Jovovich and Oded Fehr are goofing off.
