Flicks Review

NB: Our reviewer saw the 3D version of this film.... More

We’re four films into the Resident Evil series now and there’s no sign of it slowing down, especially with this latest installment boasting the biggest budget and highest international box office earnings of the franchise to date. I’ll admit to enjoying the first Resident Evil film somewhat, but seriously, what gives? These films aren’t driven by either star power or any semblance of quality and this is no exception. Paul W.S. Anderson has cobbled together another of his nonsensical attempt at high-octane action that fails to stimulate at any level.

Cribbing liberally from other things that he correctly thought looked cool but fails to replicate, here Anderson rips off The Thing, The Descent, and um, The Matrix among others. While he probably thinks he’s paying some kind of fanboy homage, all these moments achieve is a reminder that there are so many other better films you could be watching instead.

Burdened elsewhere by shoddy pacing, acting, dialogue, and most other things held to be quite important attributes of a motion picture, the worst sin Resident Evil: Afterlife commits is to be bloody boring – and no amount of slo-mo 3D backflips are going to change that.Hide

The movie was good I liked the fighting scenes except for the ending fight scene with Chris,Claire and Wesker that suxed it should of been better like more action in it, but apart from that it was a good movie.


Does this movie have any nudity or sex scenes? What is the rating?


BY Heather7 wannabe

This movie was brilliant, the fighting as always was amazing. One point in the movie that I really loved was the fight near the end with Wesker, it was straight out of Resident Evil 5 apart from the characters. It was an amazing film and anyone who says other wise is seriously under-rating a quite obvious good movie.


BY GrahamP superstar

This is a movie that is very much like the game which jumps to a new situation at a very fast pace.It grips you from start to finish with great music too.It will leave you hanging at the end as an attack is about to take place so we will have to see the next movie to find out what happens.3D works just ok.


BY Foose wannabe

Please let this series die! They should give me the money. I'll make a better film!

  • What fun there is to be had is undermined by drab 3D, hacked-out dialogue and rehashed plots. Full Review

  • Shot in actual 3D rather than being the latest example of the horrible post-shooting conversion process, "Afterlife" undeniably looks terrific. Full Review

  • If you're interested in this movie, it's because you love either seeing zombies explode (check), the video games (major character included, check) or Jovovich kicking undead butt in every conceivable way (check and mate). Full Review

  • This witless installment features the usual ultra-slow-motion mayhem and helpful freeze-frames to allow us to admire the extra dimension. Fans will not be happy, however, to learn that Ms. Jovovich is more decently clothed this time around. Full Review

  • Director Paul W.S. Anderson (who also directed the original) can hardly manage a hint of suspense or excitement. And excitement is exactly what the film ought to have in excess. Full Review
