True to series form, plot is nearly indiscernible, but this fourth installment in the sci-fi/horror/action franchise created by writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson is the sleekest so far, thanks to 3D and star Milla Jovovich's body-hugging catsuit.
The 4th movie is where the world is coming to a Zombiepocolyps. Alice is trying to rid the world of the unbrella corporation who caused the whole mess. But it is bigger than she thinks. Good 3d but once in a while they throw something at the watcher, just like the old 3d movies(and that is the cheezy part). If you like blood and guts, this is your movie.
We bought this movie to prepare for the 5th movie RETRIBUTION (Excellent 3D BTW) but the story was a little disjointed. I think you can see the 5th movie without seeing AFTERLIFE but if you are an Ali Larter fan, this appears to be your last look at her (or is it ?!?!?)
I think this Resident Evil was the worse one of the series. Too much combat, not enough talking among the actors. What happened to Clare, her brother & K-Mart? Maybe I missed it because I was getting bored by all of the fighting, nothing was even mentioned about what happened to them. How did the evil head of it all (forgot his name) all of a sudden become human & no longer wanted to kill Alice? I thought he was more powerful than her, therefore, should be able to save the humans? The movie jumped around so much that at times I had no clue what was going on & had to reverse the movie to watch was happened.\n\nTruly did not like this movie at all.
I love the way the writers keep coming up with new ideas and plot lines to the point that each movie stands on it's own. The action, of course, keeps getting better and better and in 3D, well, what more can you ask for? When you stop to consider that these movies are based upon a video game it shows that there are no limits when you do it right. Speaking for myself, i wasn't disappointed in the least. Great Job, and of course, with a good price and great delivery!!!
