But there is something awesome about the idea of a videogame franchise ripoff hero being stalked by a science fiction franchise ripoff of a videogame ripoff villain.

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.
December 20, 2010
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.

The DVD needs to come with a drinking game feature, do you hear me Sony?
October 15, 2010
I thought it was great fun. Paul W.S. Anderson -- it's his greatest hit adapting video games to movies.
October 15, 2010
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.
October 11, 2010
Inventive ideas, dazzling 3D and spectacular production design elevate this fourth in the franchise to a juicy bite above the average zombie movie.
October 11, 2010
Upping the action at every turn, this contains fantastic battle sequences and a kickass heroine wisely made relatable to audiences.

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.
September 19, 2010
[The] Resident Evil saga continues to be one of the millennium's only adequate B-movie franchises.
September 16, 2010
Just hearing the audience gasp from vertigo during the opening zoom-out shot is almost worth the price of admission.
September 14, 2010
More of the same, but if you enjoy this kind of thing, that's not necessarily a bad thing.
September 13, 2010
Anderson makes often-inspiring use of the 3-D effects, though he never quite tops the opening Shibuya Crossing bloodbath.
September 13, 2010
The action is easier to read than in most films of the genre, and therefore more enjoyable. Anderson makes particular use of sets and locations to wring out more bang for the stereoscopic buck.
September 13, 2010
Afterlife is very likely to please at least most of the fans of the series, but don't expect too much aside from Milla looking great and a groovy visual style.
September 13, 2010
If critics and fanboys weren't suckers for simplistic nihilism and high-pressure marketing, Afterlife would be universally acclaimed as a visionary feat, superior to Inception and Avatar on every level.
September 13, 2010
There are worse ways to pass an hour and a half than watching Milla Jovovich and Ali Larter shooting the hell out of zombies and mutants.
September 11, 2010
Would this movie have been made if not for the 3D Gimmick? Milla Jovovich commands the screen and makes all the RE films a fun ride. If you hate the series, this won't change your mind.
September 10, 2010
Resident Evil's appeal as a series is almost exclusively rooted in Jovovich's charisma. She combines the enigmatic magnetism of a silent-movie siren with the bravado of an action hero.
