Kate or Milla Jovovich?

I would pick Mila as Alice. Not only is she bad ass, she also dresses in hot clothes.

I'd take Kate as Selene over Milla as Alice any day of the week.

I'll be honest, a few movies Milla is in I liked, but I absolutely hated her as Alice, in the first film she was fine as it was more of a spinoff from the games like with Outbreak file 1 and 2, Dead Aim, etc etc, with non-main characters dealing with the T-virus outbreak, but the sequels pretty much turned her into a not very unique, ridiculous and unlikeable character.

The live action RE movies are just very terribly made and very badly written that take way too many creative liberties to really be considered good movies, take the third film for example, how did she get the kind of abilities that allow her to make a huge cloud of fire out of a small flame, or destroy a tiny microchip inside a a satalite in space with her mind and all this other stuff when in the source material (ie, the games) never show the T-virus being able to do that?

And then the fourth film where she has her abilities taken away, but is still able to survive a plane crash that damaged Wesker to the point where he needed a lot of time to recover from it?

And then something present in all of them, her hair color, length and style changes throughout all five movies as if Alice has her own personal hair stylist in her pocket, example, first film she's shown with blond hair that doesn't even touch her shoulders, second film which takes place right where the first left off, she's shown having brown hair that touches her shoulders, hair doesn't grow or change color in the course of a few hours, and then in the fourth and fifth she's also shown with different hair lengths and styles, showing that there's absolutely no consistency with her character.

And then another thing, a newspaper article that's shown very clearly in the second film says that Leon Kennedy is dead, yet he's somehow alive in the fifth film, and another example would be Carlos, Rain and One being cloned, even though Rains and Ones corpses were completely destroyed by the nuke that took out Raccoon City, and Carlos's corpse was destroyed by the tanker explosion in the third film, there's absolutely no explanation given as to how they were cloned it's just "OK these characters were either mentioned to be factually dead or dead but completely destroyed so no DNA could be retrieved, but they're still here anyway."

Yeah sure they're good movies, provided that you turn your brain off completely to the point where you can enjoy something that badly written that makes little sense, but that doesn't exactly excuse the fact that they are very poorly written films.

It takes a hell of a lot more for a character to be badass than just being hot and wearing "hot" clothes, if they're not well written then the word badass doesn't exactly apply, take Ellen Ripley from the Alien franchise, she doesn't wear hot clothes, but she's definitely a badass character because she's a well written character.

Milla is overrated and a horrid actress. She the female Keanu Reeves. He's the little wooden boy who's really only worth watching if the role involves a plug in the back of his head. She's the little wooden girl who's really only worth watching if it involves her being a genetically modified superchick.

I'm still a firm believer that Milla only gets work because several people in Hollywood lost a bet.

kate is better for dark worlds, resident evil is not really dark.

WOW, I thought I was the only one who thought the Underworld and Resident Evil franchises were in the same league as each other, what with the action-y spin on horror creatures (vampires/werewolves and zombies/mutants), and the fact that they both have continual stories! Turns out I'm not! LOL.

Frankly I've enjoyed all four Underworld films. Selene is also much more likeable and a bit more well-developed, too. I also find her to be extremely badass while also being sympathetic and intelligent, which is more than what I can say for Alice. Her character has also remained fairly consistent since the first film, without the unexplained power-ups or the sudden invincibility. She also doesn't repeat herself all too often--I hate that. She also seems to care when allies and friends are killed off. Hell, she even seemed upset about killing Viktor, and Viktor's a major douche (And I love Bill Nighy). Not to mention Kate's more my type. LOL. And I like the story Underworld has got going for it (so far), although I do have my doubts based on the rumours I've heard for 'Next Generation' so far, since I didn't care much for Eve.

As for the Resident Evil films, well... after the first three, the series got really... how can I say this delicately... STUPID. Afterlife was really bad, and Retribution is near-unwatchable with its stupidity. I already thought Apocalypse and Extinction were a bit of a stretch, but still entertaining. Frankly Extinction is where it all started to go downhill. Alice herself is unlikeable and not very special. And Milla's wooden, "I'm trying to be cool and badass because I'm the writer/director's wife" acting sure doesn't help her character at all. I liked her in the first and second movies, but after that she started to get pretty tedious. To only have slightly more range than Kristen Stewart when she was doing Twilight is pretty sad. And of course, there's the whole fact that she seems to be getting all these superpowers and clones out of nowhere. Clones, okay, the way it was introduced at the end of Extinction, I can handle, because there's no knowing what else Umbrella is willing to do for... no real reason except to show that they're evil. Alice just isn't a convincing character, and she becomes more cartoonish with every passing installment, and seems to become more of a heartless killing machine and less of a tragic, emotional protagonist who can still kick ass, like John McClane in the Die Hard franchise. Whenever a 'friend' or ally died, she didn't seem to care. Hell, when Michelle Rodriguez's character returned she didn't seem to think twice before shooting at her, or tossing her into the ice to be eaten by mutant zombies. She just seemed to raise those weird eyebrows of hers and go on to kill the next baddie. By the time I finished Retribution, I was like "So why should I care?"

I like both these women- they are both extremely talented actors and very sexy.
Most movies with a strong female lead almost always shows their female instincts coming through somewhere in the movie and they mellow out somewhat and that is a big turn on to a man. We want a woman to be strong but not overplay the macho part.

Ten years ago I would have said Kate for an actress and Milla for sheer sexiness. Now, I have to say the same (LOL, you thought I was going to say something different, didn't you?).
