YMMV / Resident Evil: Apocalypse

  • Base Breaker: LJ is either an offensive Ethnic Scrappy or else someone who's Actually Pretty Funny.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Jill Valentine. Be honest, you wanted her to be the protagonist.
  • Idiot Ball:
    • Jill at times, especially inside the school, where she decides the best course of action is to split up; give a gun to a civilian with no firearm training (and not even bother to instruct her how to use said firearm); and send the clearly unprepared woman on her way. Terri, of course, dies horribly.
    • The UMBRELLA corporation at the end. They've managed to capture a superhuman that has sworn to destroy them- and they give her insanely powerful telekinetic powers and then let her go.
  • Idiot Plot:
    • The UMBRELLA corporation 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 that kills millions(making it worse then Chernobyl by a long shot) isn't going to be investigated by the US government.
  • Sequelitis: The first film is recognised as a decent thriller that, while different from the games, is still good and watchable. This however marks Alice's turn into God-Mode Sue 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.
