Film: Resident Evil: Afterlife

Having not seen any of the previous movies I went into this with an open mind despite recent drubbings in the press. For the first 15mins or so I was treated to a fantastic action sequence (the 3D is wonderful) but puzzled by the story except for the basic virus outbreak leading to zombies by the bucketload.

It picks up when Alice (Milla Jovovich) and Claire (Ali Larter from Heroes) meet up with fellow survivors in an abandoned prison.

Plenty of blood and bullets fly as the newfound allies attempt to reach safety in "Arcadia" while avoiding the rather wierdly mutated zombie masses.

Prison Break's Wentworth Miller plays a mysterious prisoner and Sons Of Anarchy's Kim Coates is a slimy movie producer.

No depth to this, it's all about the 3D action scenes but if you enjoy explosions, bullets and body parts flying and some nifty sumersaults then it's a passable action flick.

  1. After seeing the other films, I wouldn't expect depth. Death yes, depth no!

  2. I've been seeing the previews for this movie on TV a lot lately. They just make me remember how pretty Milla Jovovich is.

  3. Cheers Alex.
    Miss, Milla sure looks good but there is something strange about her voice in this film. Sounds a bit gravelly, a mild version of Christian Bale's Batman.

  4. I'm planning to watch it just for Wenty :)

  5. Hi Dez,
    Wentworth is pretty good in it. I miss Prison Break !!

  6. A cinematic fast-food meal, pretty tasty but no healthy :)
