[Review] Resident Evil: Afterlife


*warning - may contain spoilers*


We last saw Alice in Resident Evil: Extinction and now she's back with more kick ass moves!


The last movie ended with Alice finding her clones and in Afterlife she used them to get her revenge at Umbrella Corp. It also shows Alice finding 'refudge' and looking for survivors in a place called Arcadia. Or is that so?


Not much of a storyline in RE Afterlife. It's just the typical revenge, kill zombies, fighting and looking for survivors. But the cinematography and effects were awesome.

Run, run, run!

I loved the first few minutes of the show the most where they filmed the scene in Tokyo filming this Jap girl getting drench in the rain and suddenly attacking a man. That was the start of the T-virus outbreak.


Check out the some new zombies introduced in the movie!
Plagas Majini

I swear this zombie is scary! They can swim, dig through the underground and appear out of the blue attacking you.

Executioner Majini

He sliced Kim Yung into half! Why do Asians tend do first in movies? lol. 
Anyway, I love the executioner's huge axe!

Ali Larter plays Claire Redfield

Clearly this is more of an action based movie with guns etc. There is also lots of slo-mo scenes which tend to get abit boring at times. I understand the producer wants the audience to be in awe in these scenes, but some parts can be speed up.

There's also Matrix influenced effects during the final battle scene!

Luther! Awesome and funny scene.

Some thoughts of mine about the movie:
1. If Alice turned human, how was she able to survive the plane crash?
2. How or where did the survivors managed to get their food supply from?
3. Not much of an interesting dialogue and developing plot. It seems like some parts are mashed up together for the sake of it.

Eye candy Wenworth Miller as Chris Redfield. His acting is okay, but I'm not convinced when he says he shouldn't be in that prison and asked Alice to free him with a maniac and slightly creepy expression on his face? =\
Nope.

Rating: 6.5/10

I watched this in 2D not 3D, but it's pretty good. Some recommend to watch it in 3D but you can see exactly what's going to come out in 3D by just watching it is 2D :) 

At some parts of the movie, I was almost at the edge of my seat because it was scary or shocking. xD

My movie date of the night, Sharmayne :D
Too bad Lizzie had to leave early =\
