Movie Review: Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D

Resident Evil 11 Movie Review: Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D

Resident Evil: Afterlife is loud, inane, often dumb, in other words, a near perfect addition to the Resident Evil franchise. I have great affection for the first two Resident Evil flicks, while the 3rd one was somewhat lacking. It was basically a Mad Max clone that wasn’t bad, but only rousing from time to time. Original director and slick hack Paul W.S Anderson is back in the director’s chair and he brings with him a bag of 3D tricks and some kick-ass action scenes. Turn your brain off and enjoy the ride.

Two guns are so much more badass than one.

Resident Evil: Afterlife picks up after the events of the 3rd film and has Alice (stunning badass Milla Jovovich) doing her monotone hottie/deadly killer rountine and once again fighting that most evil company Umbrella while trying to help survivors both new, and past. The film kicks into high-gear with a great shootout lifted right from The Matrix. The sneering Umbrella CEO wears designer shades and has a perfectly styled hairdo ala Agent Smith in Matrix. Anderson also lifts chunks of The Descent and 28 Days Later and turns on the frappe button on his blender. The 3D effects are both cool and cheesy, everything the franchise has always been and Tomandandy’s deafening techo/rock soundtrack is excellent. The real standout is Jovovich though, never much of an actress, she’s an action figure come to life, and in a film like Resident Evil: Afterlife, that’s all that matters.
