Quotes:
[first lines]
Alice: [narrating] My name is Alice. I worked for the Umbrella Corporation in a secret laboratory developing experimental viral weaponry. There was an incident. A virus escaped. Everybody died. Trouble was, they didn't stay dead. This was the start of an apocalypse that would sweep the entire world. The men responsible for this disaster took refuge underground and continued to experiment with the deadly T-Virus. They felt secure in their high-tech fortress. But they were wrong.



User Review

Am I not getting something?

Rating: 4/10

In a series that deals with viral mutations, it's pretty fitting that the fourth Resident Evil, a film that found its roots in the sort of humble zombie/ mad scientist territory, is practically mutated beyond recognition. And when is mutation ever really a good thing? After a devastating zombie plague hits humanity, rogue survivor/ superhuman Alice (Milla Jovovich) roams the globe seeking those responsible: the evil Umbrella corporation. This time, the search takes her to LA, where she finds other survivors holed up in a prison, and a mysterious safe-haven called Arcadia.

Told like a story translated into French, Japanese, back to English, and finally into GGAAAAKEEERFLLLAAARGH, Afterlife is a bloody patchwork of action movie clichés, clunky dialog, and more slow motion than you can shake a clock at. There's also a villain so villainous he wears dark glasses inside. INSIDE.

The whole thing plays out like a video recording of a theme park ride, and if we were to defend Afterlife at all, it would be that its 3D appeal does make it sort of like a ride, so much so that watching it in any other dimension is a weirdly unfocused experience that falls (get ready for it) flat. Slow-mo rubble sails unimpressively across the screen. Slow-mo bullets sort of come toward you. Oh, and did we mention the slow mo? But all these hilarious jokes aside, it's a shoddy, lazy and repetitive film that treats the audience like we don't have brains, but are just hungry for them.
