Resident Evil: Afterlife recycles nearly every horror convention. The plot is not original and the 3D is quite bad. And since we've literally seen all this before, it's only occasionally entertaining, and rarely interesting.

Resident Evil: Afterlife sees Anderson returning to cinematic dreck with a stunningly tedious exercise in 3-D CGI wankery.

Another Resident Evil zombie film with no brains but plenty of over-the-top action should still sate the appetite of certain viewers.

The very definition of 'switch your brain off' entertainment.

It's loud, bland, gory, and has very little to offer in the way of story. Don't tell me you were actually expecting something else.

With a simple plot paired with great action scenes in its brisk run time, that's all I really need from the series and 'Resident Evil: Afterlife' puts some new blood and excitement into what was close to becoming a dead franchise.

The action, however spirited in its manic creativity, is so relentlessly repetitive that it ceases to be as cool as the director plainly imagines it to be a very long time before the end of the movie .

The occasional flashes of imagination aside, "Afterlife" epitomizes what movies written largely by software and marketing committees look like

There's not one good reason for this franchise to exist. Give your ticket money to charity instead.

The law of diminishing returns rears its ugly, ugly head with Resident Evil: Afterlife, the fourth movie in a series that is going absolutely nowhere.

"Resident Evil: Afterlife" is watchable at times. Then, the story breaks down and you lose patience. There are plenty of action scenes, so if that's what you seek. Go for it. Paul Chambers, CNN.

Tons of action and butt-kicking, but the story is on autopilot, performances are stilted, and the film's budget can't keep up with director Anderson's daunting scope and scale.

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.

Wasn't all this going someplace at one time? The mind boggles at all of the incredible things these two women could be doing in wet, dirty clothes.

The DVD needs to come with a drinking game feature, do you hear me Sony?

A movie that makes the "Dawn" remake look brilliant...

Cheap hits of bang-bang adrenaline occasionally rise up but any rush is quickly tempered by the processed banality lulling you into a coma of fast-food filmmaking.

Resident Evil: Afterlife ... is boring, but you probably already knew that. The primary source of inspiration for the screenplay seems to be Alien 3 -- the very worst of the Alien films -- in both its content and incomprehensibility.

I thought it was great fun. Paul W.S. Anderson -- it's his greatest hit adapting video games to movies.
