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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Milla Jovovich sashays through the ludicrous mayhem once more, this time in 3D.

Afterlife is slow-moving but relentless, and judging from a post-credits teaser that promises at yet another sequel, it has an unquenchable appetite for your brain cells.

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

On the plus side, here is an action franchise that features two strong women as its main protagonists. On the minus side - well, there's pretty much the rest of the movie. (Parental Review also Available

Perhaps these conundrums will be answered in future installments (Resident Evil: Coherence?) but I wouldn't hold my breath. Best to just send in the clones.

It's a humorless movie of morphing zombies (they take on beastly attributes), phoned-in performances and trite dialogue.

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

Anderson heaves axes, artillery, shattered glass and The Thing-style dogs at the camera to wincing effect, but it still only adds up to a lame, by-the-numbers horror.

Jovovich remains the lone light in the increasingly lackluster videogame-based zombie franchise, which barrels through its fourth installment with a threatened fifth on the way.

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.

"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.

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

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.

This franchise has sailed far past rhyme and reason, and planted a flag in a whole new continent of crapness.

More insulting than the stereotyping and the horrifying horror clichés is the fact that the formulaic tale even has the nerve to end on a cliffhanger, setting us up for yet another sequel. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me five times? I don't think so.
