RESIDENT EVIL: AFTERLIFE is a mindless 3D slow-mo shockfest (review)

Rating:  (Passable)

If you think you've seen it all, hold on to your colostomy bags, because Resident Evil: Afterlife is about to blow you away! Not only is Paul W.S. Anderson--the series writer and helmer of the 2002 original--back to direct, he's brought a horde of upgrades to the series! Check it out!

It's got:

  • Big outdoor cinematic shots
  • Tons of bullet-time shots, circa 1999
  • An Emilia Earhart plane
  • Upgraded "Las Plagas" (Progenitor) zombies with fangy faces ala Blade II
  • Digging zombies
  • A 10 foot tall axe-hammer zombie
  • Boss fights
  • Wentworth Miller trapped in a prison cell (poor guy)
  • A mind-controlling chest device (RE5)
  • 3D!!!!

With gimmicks like these, who needs anything else? Resident Evil: Afterlife is more a series of zombie-defying 3D scenarios than a real movie, but is anyone complaining?
