‘I’m rooting for the zombies’: Netflix’s Resident Evil Mentions Disgusting Zootopia Porn, Internet Convinced Netflix Doesn’t Care Anymore About Quality

The highly anticipated Resident Evil series from Netflix made its debut on the service on Thursday, July 14, 2022. Unfortunately, the show hasn’t exactly received favorable reviews from viewers at this point. Netizens are expressing their ridicule towards poorly written dialogue with one of the lines of the show being, “I mostly just read Zootopia porn…” To say people are appalled would be an understatement. On Twitter, viewers shared their criticisms about the new horror series. Users commented on the evolution of video-game adaptations and how they have become, “overproduced corporate sludge.”

With an IMDB rating of 3.5/10, Netflix’s adaptation of the videogame series has become the internet’s laughing stock. The plot centers around Jade Wesker, who struggles to survive in a world overrun by infected monsters; fourteen years after a terrible virus caused a global catastrophe while being haunted by her past discoveries about her father. The story alternates between two timelines of events, one taking place 14 years ago and one after.

While some users on Twitter expressed positive sentiments, most of them talked of not just the unpleasantly written “cringe” dialogues, but also about the show’s never-ending clichés, how it refuses to stay true to its video-game source material, and how its nothing but a “bad fanfic with a budget.” Some even questioned, “what were the writers thinking?”

While most of the reception is bad, some stated that the series has some redeeming qualities. Most of it was in praise of Lance Reddick who plays Albert Wesker in the Netflix series. Fans have certainly appreciated his acting in Resident Evil and perhaps, that will be the only pleasant takeaway for most.
