Paul Anderson makes amends for his lacklustre
here with another video game adaptation. A single-minded tale of genetic research facility workers accidentally turned into ravenous zombies, it's a relentless throat-grabber. Hingeing on grisly special effects, breakneck pacing and hard-hitting fight sequences, Anderson at least racks up the tension to claustrophobic levels. It really is like watching a video game come to life - should that appeal - as Milla Jovovich and a team of commandos move through progressively more dangerous levels to wipe out the undead. As with the film's source material, there's no enduring substance here. However, the nerve-jangling score, co-composed by shock rocker Marilyn Manson, gives it an extra frenetic edge.
A team of commandos enters a top-secret underground research facility when a deadly virus which turns victims into flesh-eating zombies is accidentally released. But their containment mission spins out of control as a rogue super-intelligent computer and hordes of the marauding undead wreak havoc. Sci-fi action horror, starring Milla Jovovich, Michelle Rodriguez and James Purefoy.
