Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D

by wfgodbold

Was surprisingly better than expected; given the review aggregate, I went in to the theater wincing in anticipation of a wasted $11.

The action was well done, the plot was coherent enough to string together the action, and the actors were all believable as cardboard cutouts of post-apocalyptic survivors struggling to fight off the horde of zombies at the door.  They of course left the ending open for a sequel; it wouldn’t be a Resident Evil movie if they didn’t.

My only gripe was with the slow-motion action scenes; while they were well done, the slow-mo made it easy to watch Milla Jovovich and Ali Larter blink every time they fired their guns.

I do wonder at how Umbrella Corp. is planning on making money; they’ve managed to kill off (or infect) most of the earth’s population.  In the games, at least, the zombie outbreaks are just that: outbreaks, not a full-fledged zombie apocalypse.

We’ll see where the series goes from here, assuming it makes enough money for them to justify making another; the others were panned, but still did okay.
