Critic Reviews for Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City

All Critics (80) | Top Critics (14)

This brand of minimalism is harder than it looks: with so much stripped away, everything that remains needs to have the exact right weight. Raccoon City suffers a major loss of momentum around halfway, and never entirely recovers.

December 10, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Doesn't do its own thing, and it does the old thing very badly.

December 7, 2021 | Full Review…

This latest visit to Raccoon City captures the games' spirit but fails to translate that to cinematic thrills.

December 6, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

While Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City has its moments, it doesn't have enough of them to make watching the movie in its entirety worthwhile.

December 3, 2021 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

This is a reasonably entertaining, unpretentiously gory horror exercise, although clearly a bit distended with an excess of characters that need to be incorporated into the plot, many of whom feature in older RE lore.

December 2, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

It flatlines, all of its franchise reverence proving futile within a messy narrative.
