‘Resident Evil’ On Netflix Is Getting Backlash From Fans Of The Video Game Series

by Netflix resident Evil the adaptation fails to win the love of fans of the video game series on which it is based. Although the new horror-action series has risen to the top of the streaming charts, even dethroning stranger things as the #1 TV series on the platform, it is criticized by Capcom game fans.

Arrival on the quay on Thursday July 14, resident Evil, a Netflix Original, spans two different timelines. The first timeline is set in the year 2022 and follows 14-year-old fraternal twins Billie and Jade, children of Dr. Albert Wesker, as they relocate to the Umbrella Corporation’s planned community of New Raccoon City. It is there that they learn about Umbrella’s dark legacy, while their father coordinates a response to the appearance of a retroviral bioweapon called the T-virus. Set in 2036, the “current” timeline is set years after the T-virus epidemic, which reduced human civilization to 300 million refugees surrounded by the six billion “zeros” who contracted the disease.

The series had been widely anticipated before its premiere, and while it’s been quite successful on the platform, it finally seems to be falling flat. With a critic score of 51% and an audience score of 25% on rotten tomatoes, resident Evil is set apart by fans of the game franchise. Keep scrolling to see what people are saying.
