The fourth installment of the hugely successful Resident Evil franchise, Resident Evil: Afterlife is again based on the wildly popular video game series. In a world ravaged by a virus infection, turning its victims into the Undead, Alice (Milla Jovovich), continues on her journey to find survivors and lead them to safety. Her deadly battle with the Umbrella Corporation reaches new heights, but Alice gets some unexpected help from an old friend. A new lead that promises a safe haven from the Undead takes them to Los Angeles, but when they arrive the city is overrun by thousands of Undead - and Alice and her comrades are about to step into a deadly trap.
In Paul W.S. Anderson's Resident Evil: Afterlife, the fourth entry in the seemingly endless action-science fiction horror franchise based on the popular Capcom video game series, plot, dialogue, and character development all remain secondary considerations: What's key here are the set pieces that allow Milla Jovovich to unleash maximum damage to virally infected zombies, villainous henchmen, and just about anyone else who stands in the way of her stopping the shadowy Umbrella Corporation. Jovovich retains the blend of grit and pulchritude that have made her a fanboy favorite (though said viewers may decry the film's bit of shower-scene interruptus), and she's well supported by returning cast members Ali Larter and Boris Kodjoe (Undercovers) and Prison Break's Wentworth Miller, who, as Claire's brother, is back behind bars in a postapocalyptic jail overrun by plague zombies. Those looking for more than what the Resident Evil franchise is designed to provide--souped-up, B-movie thrills--are advised to lower their expectations; franchise devotees should be pleased, especially by the film's final scene, which (naturally) sets up another sequel. --Paul Gaita
Not enough action like the other Resident Evil movies. Seems like a combination of the Walking Dead and The Matrix!Published 3 days ago by RM
Pretty much what you'd expect from one of these movies, which isn't much (or at least you shouldn't). Read morePublished 10 days ago by Arvind

|Would anyone be interested in a reboot?||
i enjoyed the first movie a lot, but the second sequel was a major flaw, although i liked seeing Valentine stepping in. the other remaining sequels were nicely done. as for a reboot, it would probably start a protest among RE fans. i wouldn't mind a reboot; Anderson's RE films weren't really...

If you buy it in 3D you can watch it now in 2D and then later in 3D when you upgrade your equipment. If you buy the 2D disc version then you will have to purchase the movie again if you ever go 3D.

What they should do is release 2-D and 3-D versions together so you can buy them at once. If you don't have anything 3-D yet, you might one day. Especially Resident Evil Afterlife which had excellent 3-D, and Avatar. The editions available now are only in 2-D though...
