RESIDENT EVIL: WELCOME TO RACCOON CITY is a new adaptation of the popular Resident Evil game franchise which uses the characters and story more than the previous RESIDENT EVIL live action films ever did. This RESIDENT EVIL movie adapts from two of the video games and sets it in the 1990s with John Carpenter style credit sequences.

RESIDENT EVIL: WELCOME TO RACCOON CITY is sometimes better and sometimes just so-so compared to the first RESIDENT EVIL movie that director Paul W.S. Anderson directed. On the plus side, the characters from the video games are the central characters and not a character like Alice who was invented for the movie series. I love the previous six RESIDNET EVIL movies, but one of my big complaints about the previous films is how they didn't utilize the game characters well enough and sometimes even drop storylines set up by the cliffhanger ending of the previous movie.

SPECIAL FEATURES:
Three Featurettes that go behind the scenes of making the movie with cast and crew interviews (and behind-the-scenes footage)-
REPLICATING THE DNA
COPS, CORPSES, AND CHAOS
ZOMBIES, LICKERS, AND THE HORROR OF RESIDENT EVIL

Also included on the 4K UHD and blu-ray disc are previews for other releases from Sony Pictures including SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME, VENOM: LET THERE BE CARNAGE, MORBIUS, UNCHARTED, and GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE

An insert for a UHD digital code (for the movie and extras) available to redeem at Movies Anywhere is in the case.

FINAL ANALYSIS: I liked this new adaptation of RESIDENT EVIL. I can see where the first two RESIDENT EVIL movies took inspiration from the video games and the featurettes are great to watch if you want to know more about the production and adaptation. I do wish the movie was a little longer, but I hope we get to see a sequel despite the movie doing poor box office.
