Adapted from the popular video game of the same title, the fourth instalment of Resident Evil: Afterlife promises more zombie action in a world ravaged by a virus infection. Stars Ali Larter, Milla Jovovich, Spencer Locke and Wentworth Miller.
The Resident Evil franchise, as mediocre as it is, is actually one of the better console to cinema efforts to date. It’s fairly obvious that writer/director Paul W.S. Anderson has passion for this project (he’s written and produced all four Resident Evil films and directed two of them) and that clearly shines through.
Anderson has found a niche catering to testosterone-laced teenage boys by either making brainless action sci-fi (Death Race, AVP: Alien vs. Predator) or other brainless video game adaptations (Mortal Kombat, DOA: Dead or Alive) so at least he’s had practice to refine his approach such inanity. Resident Evil: Afterlife represents the cumulative peak of all that, which is about as backhanded a compliment I can probably give.
