Resident Evil Afterlife Review

Premise:

Thoughts: I've always enjoyed the movies in the Resident Evil series. They may not be amazing, but I think some people watch the movies and are disappointed they're not as good as the games.

Resident Evil Afterlife starts off slow for a third of the movie. Finally, the main character, Alice, lands her plane on a rooftop after seeing survivors. This is where the movie gets more exciting because they must reach a ship that is at least a couple of miles away.

The action in this movie is hit or miss.

*Some Spoils* 
The biggest disappointment was the prison shower room fight with the Executioner Majini (which I knew from the game). The Executioner Majini took out some shower pipes, and threw his axe barely missing Alice. Then he got shot and his head exploded. The whole fight was basically in slow motion so it was longer, but that's about it.


Final Say: They ended the movie with a cliffhanger, but this was my least favorite Resident Evil film yet. The effects and the general look to the movie were really awesome, but the story, and some of the fighting was just lacking creativity. I think the movie series should just end where it's at. If you liked the other Resident Evil movies, check it out, but if you don't get to it, don't beat yourself up. I give it a 2 1/2 *'s out of 5, or 5 *'s out of 10.

  1. I am a big fan of the Resident Evil movies, I like the intricate plot and how they all tie into together. I am so glad that Resident Evil: Afterlife is included in the free content available on DISH Network's new website. As a DISH customer/employee, TV can get boring after a while and DISH Online helps to mix things up. There are thousands of show and movie titles available; go to dishonline.com.
