He has carved out a niche in the business of being hard-working and staying within budget. His first major breakthrough was directing the first ''Film/MortalKombat'' movie, which managed to get some major critics supporting it, appeal to a mainstream audience and make its money back. Today the movie is regarded as a bit of a CultClassic. He has since been involved with several other video-game inspired movies, all with a similar degree of respect (or lack thereof), mainly the ''Film/ResidentEvilFilmSeries''. In other words, he could be called the "rich man's [[Creator/UweBoll Uwe]] [[SmallNameBigEgo Bo]][[AcceptableTargets ll]]."

* {{Nepotism}}: Since the ''Resident Evil'' movies, it's become a stereotype of his that his wife Mila Jovovich is cast as the starring roles in all of his movies.

* {{Nepotism}}: Even though this has only been clear in the ''Resident Evil'' movies, it's become a stereotype of his since his wife Mila Jovovich has been cast as the starring roles in multiple movies of his.
* SequelHook: Of his directorial efforts, all but ''{{Film/Pompeii}}'' ([[ForegoneConclusion obviously]]) have some variation on BolivianArmyEnding, TheEndOrIsIt, or AndTheAdventureContinues. Fortunately for him, almost all have been followed up on at some point, for better or worse. Despite this tendency in his work, he rarely directs the sequels himself (even with Resident Evil where he later returned to direct some of the sequels, he skipped out on directing the second and third films).

* JitterCam: Like Creator/MichaelBay, Anderson is (in)famous for his use of this trope, which, combined with fast cutting, makes it hard to tell what is going on in some scenes.
