Ultra stylish and fun but hollow
Verified purchase
Paul Anderson (Event Horizon) returns to the franchise he created for the first time since the original. The results are aesthetically astounding but slightly hollow. For the first time in the series it seems as though characters are simply added for a higher body count than having a real purpose. That being said it's a hell of a lot of fun especially if you turn off your brain. There are some truly dynamic scenes, the slow mo shower battle is gorgeous and enthralling. This time around the clones descend upon umbrella and are quickly disposed of and Alice looses her power and becomes human. She searches for Claire and the gang but stumbles upon a new gang at a prison that includes sexy Wentworth Miller (Prison Break) and gorgeous Boris Kodjoe (Addicted). The zombie army rages outside with some new mutations afoot while they try and escape to a supposed safe facility called Arcadia. The movie is fast and fun and ultra stylish. It's a step down story wise from Extinction but it's much prettier.

Budget: $60m

Same old same old from this franchise CGI action scenes of Jovovich kiling zombies & minions
Verified purchase
Staying true to the series Afterlife starts off being about Milla Jovovich’s conflict with the Umbrella Corporation and then she ends up with a group of human survivors fending off zombies. There’s nothing more to the plot as the entire franchise is just about the action sequences. The film actually has a very stylized start with a rainy scene from Japan featuring a woman in a crowd who turns out to be infected and bites a man in the neck. After that it’s the usual Jovovich shooting and kicking Umbrella minions and zombies with lots of CGI effects which I’m not the biggest fan of. The question then is whether Afterlife could add anything to the formula? Well some of the zombies had a new look with octopus mouths and there’s a giant as well which looks like it was inspired by the Silent Hill flicks. Otherwise it’s rather routine.

4K UHD presentation of this film is a big improvement over the 2K 1080P Blu-Ray
Verified purchase
I won't comment on "Resident Evil: Afterlife" as a film, it is well known to fans of the series. But I will say that what I have read elsewhere about the difference between the Blu-Ray and the 4k UHD disc versions to be absolutely true: The 4K UHD image is a vast upgrade over the generally terrible transfer used on the standard Blu-Ray disc. Not that the 4K UHD image for "Resident Evil: Afterlife" is especially great as a 4K UHD presentation. But the 1080 Blu-Ray transfers is so mediocre that the huge up-tick in clarity and texture on the 4K UHD disc just jumps right out at you. This is surely a film that had its many special effects finished in 2K intermediate for editing. Some scenes are just inherently soft. So any increases in quality is a plus. The image is just much better resolved on the 4K UHD disc.

I thought it was great in 3D but in 4K HDR! WOW!!!
Verified purchase
I was debating on buying the 4K HDR version, since I already own it in 3D and Blu Ray. Plus, this movie wasn't filmed in 4K so while it will look better than the 1080p version it's the HDR that really makes the movie shine!
The colors were vivid, details are sharp, the contrast was out of this world! I was astounded by the difference between the two.

Well, For One Thing, The Time-Line Is Broken
Verified purchase
This film starts by /clearly/ stating it is set four years after the prior film.
The Alice clones attack on The Umbrella Corporation promised in the prior film then occurs.
This doesn't actually work very well, and Alice is injected with the antidote, reducing her from superhero to human again.
She meets her friends, one of whom is wearing a control device, and clearly states it's been 18 months since they parted.
This eventually leads to their boarding a ship which turns out to be Yet Another Evil Lair. However, they manage to take it over just before being assaulted by ... well, you can imagine who, there's only one Evil Corporation, after all.
Note the discrepancy between "four years" and "18 months". Clearly, we have changed time-lines.
But that doesn't much matter -- this is an action flick, and a good one!

trash.
Verified purchase
Its trash as a film in general and trash as a UNfaithful adoption from a Beloved game franchise. no matter how much time passes by the Non cannon "alice" who was literally made up JusT to cast mila jovovich will never grow on me. if the director wanted mila in tge film so bad he could have just cast her as Jill and made an Actual Loyal adaptation based on the games storyline which is Vastly superior to this incoherent garbage. Only normies (average movie goers who are Not gamers and have never even played tge games) will give these films praise. and that is a shame. but it is what it is. im just glad its not cannon with the games. terrible acting terrible plot terrible action. slow motion abuse. TOOL copyrighted music Abuse. Literally just Spamming Self destruct throughout the ENTIRE Film on LOOP. cmon people the entire movie is just one song on LOOP.

I was getting nervous with the series after the 3rd installment!
Verified purchase
I really didn't care too much for the 3rd Resident Evil in the series, it was too "Road Warrior" spin off for my taste. I Didn't like any of the road warrior series except the first Road warrior film. The 1st and 2nd were more of an original take on the zombie movies and I thoroughly enjoyed those a lot. The 4th in the series returns, somewhat, to the original formula. Of course not as great as the first 2, but still entertaining enough with some good special effects and a decent plot twist. Action sequences keeps the energy going for the storyline also. I'm a fan of the resident evil movies and I don't mind too much the implementation of action sequences resembling the matrix movies but I can understand why some wouldn't. Go ahead and finish watching the series, I can attest the remaining is well worth it.

Claire Redfield
Verified purchase
All I will say is that Ali Larter plays Claire Redfield to the "T". That's the reason for the 4-stars. I am currently playing the video game, "Resident Evil 2 Remake" and I absolutely adore Claire Redfield in it. She's sweet, tough-as-nails, and beautiful. Just don't piss her off.
