Netflix premiered a new live-action adaptation of the popular Resident Evil video game saga, a series that has the same name and has eight chapters already released on the platform.
The series has had mixed reactions from specialized Film and Television critics, who maintain it with a 51% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Number that is not so benevolent in the case of the audience score on the same site, which is 25% at the time of publishing this note.
And in addition to this poor reception from the players and the general public, there is also the ridicule that one of the characters in the series has received, which maintains an appearance similar to that of the video games, but that has not served as an impediment for it to be Create and post dozens of memes on social networks.
This is Albert Wesker, who is played by an actor who does not physically resemble the character in the video game saga. And since he is also African-American and in one scene he wears a leather suit, black trench coat and dark glasses, many fans were quick to compare him to Marvel’s vampire slayer, Blade.
A couple of days ago, actor Lance Reddick (who plays Wesker in the series) said that he was not familiar with the Resident Evil video games, since: “I was familiar with the franchise, but I was not familiar with Wesker because my only orientation towards the franchise was the movies.”
“And to be honest, I wasn’t even aware of video games,” said the actor.
As we indicated, the Resident Evil series is already available on Netflix with a first season that apparently will be the only one.
