I liked the first animated one better than the real movies, so this is dope. I'd love to see a Raccoon City set movie, animated or not, preferable animated, about the original game's story line. These movies today with Alice are kinda lame.

Brilliant news

I don't mind the live action films but the writer needs to stop taking ideas from all of the games, it doesn't really make any sense

The live action films are just a joke, it's resident evil in name only. I have no interest in the character of Alice much less follow her through this dumb and redundant franchise.

what was degeneration about? was it based off any of the first games?

Degeneration was a cgi film that starred the main characters from resident evil 2, the film acts as a follow up to that game.
