Milla Jovovich talks about being hated by Resident Evil fanboys

While most fans can separate the Resident Evil films from the games and enjoy them for what they are, others will curse anyone and everyone involved.

As the star of these films Milla Jovovich - who plays Alice - knows a thing or two about this. We sat down with the Hollywood A-lister and had a chat about Resident Evil: Afterlife, the series and fan response.

Here's a quick summary of the interview, provided by

- Milla Jovovich demanded her superhuman power to remain intact in RE Afterlife, but it was Paul [WS Anderson] who persuaded her to change her mind. In the end, they settled for a compromise where Alice will have her power stripped but still gets to be a badass in the movie.

- She originally requested to be cast as Jill Valentine in the 1st movie because she want to surprise her brother, who was a RE fan. It was again Paul Anderson who convinced her that it wouldn't work because it will stop them from reaching out to the audience who ain't fan of the game series, and that they don't want to get stuck using Capcom's storyline.

- Regarding the fans backlash, she talks about how there are like 15 people in the world that passionately hates her. When she tell them to write the script themselves instead, she claims that these people will then argue and disagree themselves.

- Alice was created so non-fans can jump into the movie without knowing the history of the character.

- There are many fans of Alice and the RE movies from what she sees on her twitter.

- She loves being a part of the RE movies because she "was always a fan of really strong female characters growing up"

The Resident Evil movies sucked ever since #2 came out. They started having Dragonball Superpowers and shit. Retarded!

I_find_it_funny2619d ago

I don't even remember what RE2, RE3,... movies were about, what that tells you, but I know exactly how RE1 was

Redempteur2619d ago

RE1 wasn't great but it wasn't a bad adaptation ..RE2 , RE3 however ...dammit what did they do ....

ThanatosDMC2619d ago

Speaking of Dragonball... the Dragon Ball movie sucked balls.

"When she tell them to write the script themselves instead, she claims that these people will then argue and disagree themselves."

If her stupid husband pays my expenses (for food and bills, nothing else), I'd be happy to write a better script that'll blow their worthless minds. Anyone, with or without experience, can write a beter script than that stupid egotistical bastard. He butchered Resident Evil, he f*cked up Aliens Versus Predator and now he's going to do the same for Castlevania.

Yeh, but Resident Evil games have never been really well written anyway.

The first two had a thriller/mystery aspect to them which really is what made the games for me.

smashman982618d ago

Lol the games had good stories but bad scripts,
along with awesome scares and fun gameplay

when i watch the movies i cringe...
because its horrific in all the wrong ways

Yes_22619d ago

I don't understand the second point. How is Alice more relateable than Jill Valentine? Alice is an infected superhero Mary Sue who can take on goddamn NEMESIS with her bare hands, while Jill is a regular woman who fell into in a shitty situation. GUESS WHO'S MORE RELATEABLE, PAUL!!

And so what if the audience has never heard of Jill before? AS THE DIRECTOR IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO INTRODUCE HER TO THE AUDIENCE!!
It's not like Jill has a deep and complex character history in the first place. She's a member of the elite STARS force and works at the Raccoon City police department. That's it! That's all you need to know about her at the beginning of the movie!

Dude the RE movies are what they are. Love or hate em they make $$$. I personally can take or leave them. I can think of worse game based movies.

Anyone see Doom lol


Milla will always be cool in my book. She did The 5th Element so she can be in crap movies cause she gets a lifetime pass from me.



Man a guy can wish can't he? I watched it the other day on Netflicks and I am always left wanting more when I do. Glad I was unaware they made a game cause I might have bought it.

FragMnTagM2619d ago

Man I loved that movie. I really wish they would do something else based in that universe. It was a really believable future. Hell, even a new game based off of a character in the movie could be pretty bad ass.

That game they made with the movie back then was absolutely horrible.

nnotdead2619d ago

feel the same about Milla. i also enjoyed the first RE movie. i was going into it expecting a really bad video game movie along the line of Doom or House of the Dead, but instead i was giving an enjoyable popcorn movie.

iceman062618d ago

I agree and...believe it or not...I think she is sexy! A little thin for my tastes, but still very sexy!

We don't hate you, just the producer. They just give resident evil a bad name, because they are just Ok to bad films and are hardly horror so the fans see it as a missed oppertunity(be a much more successful horror/mystery imo with Umbrella and that) but they had to take the action movie route....

Buffniceguy2619d ago (Edited 2619d ago )

I never hated on Alice. Resident Evil 1 is the best one love that movie but the rest are pretty awful.

EliteDave932619d ago (Edited 2619d ago )

Wanna take her in the arse!

BX812618d ago

I wit you PAC! Let's take this dame to pound town!

adrock20992619d ago

Well Milla, maybe if the movies weren't horrible abominations that spit in the face of everything Resident Evil stands for, people would be less inclined to hate you and your terrible-at-directing husband.
