Resident Evil: Afterlife

Rated 1.0

This is a zombie movie sequel that deemphasizes the walking dead in favor of cardboard characters standing around having monotonous conversations about what they are going to do next. And when they do something, they do it in frustrating slow motion. The story picks up where the last one left off, with multiple Alice (Milla Jovovich) clones running around in tight outfits—this visual being one of the few good things about this movie. They are attacking the Umbrella Corporation, going up against some bastard named Albert Wesker, played by the awful Shawn Roberts. He’s yet another film villain who copies Hugo Weaving in The Matrix. Director Paul W.S. Anderson shot the film in 3-D, and he does little to advance the latest movie craze. His film is boring, not to mention cheap-looking. Another one is probably on the way. Hopefully, Anderson will hand the directorial reigns to someone else.
