As I Lay Dying

The script is incoherent and the acting is terrible -- avatars would have been an improvement.
| Original Score: 1/4
| Original Score: 1/5
Some sequels suggest that no one involved with a franchise really cares anymore.
A zombie plague may have laid waste the world, but apparently supplies of black leather unitards have yet to be exhausted.
| Original Score: 2/5
During the film's final sequence the director explains all while also suggesting that the franchise's nuttiest days are, remarkably, yet to come.
| Original Score: B-
Writer-director Paul W.S. Anderson ... attempts to fill out a flimsy plot structure by making the characters' comings and goings overly convoluted.
Diagramming every revolution of Jovovich in wheeling and whirling action, however, Anderson is pitch-perfect when singing the body electric.
If they ran these scenes at normal speed, would 95 dreary minutes become a much more expedient 20 to 25?
| Original Score: 1.5/5
Endless video-game-style, violent mayhem is on display in this latest edition of the mind-numbing apocalypse series.
Like an established pizza chain, director Anderson is in thrall to a guarantee: all relationships, of any significance, will be established in three seconds or less.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
It's all the same blah-blah carnage as the first four flicks, with 3D effects hurling blood, blades and body parts into the audience amid a non-stop barrage of gunfire and explosions.
