Resident Evil: Afterlife
From the first minute to the end of the credits, this movie is a zombie movie lover's fantasy. Imagine crossing Shaun of the Dead and Kung Fu Hustle and you'll have a small idea of what kind of movie you're in for when you watch Resident Evil: Afterlife.
I scour the world of film to find movies that stand out to me as being worthy of owning. I'm very picky when it comes to movies, and I've seen many films that fall into the "zombie" category which end up being nothing short of wasted time in my life once I reach the ending. I am not a fan of Shaun of the Dead simply because it only is a comedy, as it mocks the entire genre of horror movies and zombie flicks. Resident Evil: Afterlife is much the same in the way that you try to open your mind to it and wonder how long it will be before you can accept it's another sorry zombie movie, before you realize that you're laughing hysterically aloud at flying heads and spurting blood.
The plot sucks and has more holes than a moth-eaten sock. The zombies don't follow normal rules of engagement and the film just substitutes gore for true well written horror. Imagine zombies being killed by a newly deceased spirit and people being possessed and killing themselves. Zombies specialized in exorcising just die by strangulation! That is ridiculous. Guys, don't watch this one. Its not worth the time at all! I hope this review and my comments have helped you make your decision about this movie. Overall 2/10
