It's been five years since the zombie virus swept across the globe, and Alice (Milla Jovovich) is still traveling tirelessly in search of survivors. When the Umbrella Corporation ratchets up the stakes, an old friend turns up to lend Alice a helping hand. Rumor has it that some survivors have found sanctuary in Los Angeles, but when Alice and friends show up they find the city overrun with zombies, and… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader
"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."
‑ Michael Ordoņa, Los Angeles Times
"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."
‑ Blake Griffin, We Got This Covered
"The very definition of 'switch your brain off' entertainment."
‑ Ali Gray,
"The action, however spirited in its manic creativity, is so relentlessly repetitive that it ceases to be as cool as the director plainly imagines it to be a very long time before the end of the movie ."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Resident Evil: Afterlife lacks the humanity -- interesting characters, funny one-liners -- that made its predecessors enjoyable B-movies."
‑ Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer
"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."
‑ Andrew Barker, Variety
"Resident Evil: Afterlife sees Anderson returning to cinematic dreck with a stunningly tedious exercise in 3-D CGI wankery."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"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."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"The occasional flashes of imagination aside, "Afterlife" epitomizes what movies written largely by software and marketing committees look like"
‑ Jay Antani, Cinema Writer
"Anderson makes often-inspiring use of the 3-D effects, though he never quite tops the opening Shibuya Crossing bloodbath."
‑ Keith Uhlich, Time Out New York
"Like pretty much all of Anderson's films, this one is half-baked. The half that's baked isn't too bad, though."
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"Another Resident Evil zombie film with no brains but plenty of over-the-top action should still sate the appetite of certain viewers."
‑ Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant
"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."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"There's not one good reason for this franchise to exist. Give your ticket money to charity instead."
‑ Dave White,
