Review: ‘Resident Evil: Afterlife’ 3D is a treat for action buffs

The girl is back and this time she has brought in her friends. The fourth movie in the ‘Resident Evil’ series, ‘Afterlife’ follows on the same tradition of non-stop action films and has pretty decently brought out more character development to make a great sequel.

This movie is high on action. It simply rocks! Stunner Milla Jovovich has given a yet another outstanding performance in the lead role.

Talking about the main plot of ‘Resident Evil: Afterlife’ is futile, as here again Alice (Milla Jovovich) is rounding up people who are not infected and trying to lead them to safety.

In this edition of ‘Resident Evil’, Alice seems a lot more `human’ as compared to the first three ‘Resident Evil’ franchise where she was a rather a ‘cold’ hit girl. Guys would be in for some visual treat as the maker Paul Anderson has brought back Ali Larter and Claire in this film as two very hot women, who kick butt - always makes for great entertainment!

There are quite a few high point of the movie, one of which is of course the part of Wesker, played by the talented Shawn Roberts. It’s strange though why such a powerful character like Wesker (who is one of the main characters in the Resident Evil video game) was left out of the first three installments of the film.

Then of course there are zombies here this time with the splitting faces which undoubtedly gives the film a little boost, and then there is this giant axe guy believed to be called, the Executioner, who elevates the wow elements to the hilt.

As far as the 3D effects are concerned, ‘Resident Evil: Afterlife’ strikes a good balance between technology and the talk which the film’s doing.

‘Resident Evil: Afterlife’ is everything you will expected in a continuation of this series. Even if you are not a fan of the ‘Resident Evil’ movies, you will love the action in this one.

All in all, a great science fiction action thriller in 3D and which has enough zombies to send shivers down your spine this weekend.

Ratings: Three stars for this 3D!
