Bound to please the legions of Milla fans who have doubtless poured over the extras-rich DVDs of the first three Resident Evils, as well as her please-sequel-this gem Ultra Violet.

I seriously doubt there is anyone out there in modern motion pictures who looks to be having less fun at work than Milla Jovovich. Behind that supermodel sneer is one totally bored woman.

At least you know what to expect with this sort of film, and you don't get anything more.

Whether or not you are a series regular, you are unlikely to encounter anything here that you haven't met before in the sci-fi/horror movie universe.

Paul W.S. Anderson has discovered his favourite new gimmick - slow motion. Had Afterlife played at full speed, it probably would have lasted all of 15 minutes. Wouldn't that have been nice.

How many more Resident Evil films are they going to make? Hopefully the answer is zero.

Inventive ideas, dazzling 3D and spectacular production design elevate this fourth in the franchise to a juicy bite above the average zombie movie.

Upping the action at every turn, this contains fantastic battle sequences and a kickass heroine wisely made relatable to audiences.

Your level of enjoyment of this depends on how much you like Anderson?s slo-mo decapitations and other forms of gory special effects.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

By this time, only aficionados will be keeping up with the series mythology; the rest of us will have to accept or reject this sequel as an exercise in unbridled, surreal, nonsensical action-cool -- as much a head trip, in its way, as 'Koyaanisqatsi.'

It's the least like a video game, so "Afterlife" is the best of the lot.

The new Paul W. S. Anderson movie, "Resident Evil: Afterlife," features one scene that's memorable, if only because it's so comical. You were looking for more than one memorable scene? Wrong movie.

[The] Resident Evil saga continues to be one of the millennium's only adequate B-movie franchises.

O surpreendente 3D acaba tornando o filme mais relevante que seus antecessores - mesmo que Paul W.S. tenha alcançado este pequeno sucesso por acidente.

... 3-D, where bad sequels go to die ...

Same as the others; watchable if you like mindless, gory, zombie exploits. Others need not apply.

The good news: If you're a fan of the unkillable video game adaptation, then don't worry; it looks like there's going to be yet another installment in the Resident Evil series.

Resident Evil: Afterlife lacks the humanity -- interesting characters, funny one-liners -- that made its predecessors enjoyable B-movies.

There is not a single shot or moment that is anything other than derivative, and the fact that the momentum is constantly interrupted with egregious slow motion makes it feel that much longer and therefore more insufferable.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Brash and bombastic this new entry might be, but it's also criminally boring.
