Consensus: As dim-witted and lifeless as its undead antagonists, Resident Evil: Afterlife is a wholly unnecessary addition to the franchise.

Andrea Gronvall
Chicago Reader

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 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.

We Got This Covered

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.

Resident Evil: Afterlife lacks the humanity -- interesting characters, funny one-liners -- that made its predecessors enjoyable B-movies.

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.

Resident Evil: Afterlife sees Anderson returning to cinematic dreck with a stunningly tedious exercise in 3-D CGI wankery.

Anderson makes often-inspiring use of the 3-D effects, though he never quite tops the opening Shibuya Crossing bloodbath.

Like pretty much all of Anderson's films, this one is half-baked. The half that's baked isn't too bad, though.

ScreenRant

Another Resident Evil zombie film with no brains but plenty of over-the-top action should still sate the appetite of certain viewers.

Yeah, not great. This episode is like a poor man's Dawn of the Dead. It does get a little bit silly in places too but too be honest I like the silly stuff… More
