My name is Alice. I worked for the Umbrella Corporation in a secret laboratory developing experimental viral weaponry. There was an incident. A virus escaped. Everybody died. Trouble was, they didn't stay dead. This was the start of an apocalypse that would sweep the entire world. The men responsible for this disaster took refuge underground and continued to experiment with the deadly T-Virus. They felt secure in their high-tech fortress. But they were wrong.

Resident Evil(series) needs Fresh Blood or R.I.P.!
Sheer disappointment! This is surely the weakest Resident Evil movie in the series. Although we still have the ruthless Umbrella corporation and the undead here chasing the survivors, their characterisation also left much to be desired.
The only thing which was and still goes good for the series is Milla Jovovich. That's unfortunate because how much of the movie's success can she carry on her sexy shoulders :) Yes, she still looks smokin' hot and ably kicks b***. She also gets nice support from Ali Larter although you don't miss anything if you'd replace her with anyone else :) Seriously, I think Larter's better off in negative, villain roles than just being a side support. And except for Albert Wesker(head of Umbrella) who was effectively menacing in his act, we can forget the rest of the cast.
Even if we were to include the good visual effects and the action choreography, they don't help much to mask the mediocrity of Afterlife. Which is sad because I really like Paul Anderson's first in the series. That was quite scary & memorable. The second in the series was good too. The third wobbled a bit but this one just crashed! So I guess Paul should stop making any more REs unless there's a complete makeover in the writing, direction and casting(except for Milla Jovovich)
Verdict: Hardly much life in the movie, forget Afterlife! Chuck it.
