Finally, I got to watch Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D in the cinema at Cathay Cineleisure PJ. Seriously Alice (Milla Jovovich) looks so cool than the previous RE trilogy. This movie is packed with more action, more visual effects especially the 3D, it was AWESOME! With a rating, I gave, 4.5/5! Guess what? It successfully thrilled and scared me in some parts of the movie!
The story started showing a Japanese girl standing in the rain and suddenly it turns into a zombie and starts biting the peoples and the virus spread throughout Japan… and the world.
Alice’s clones appeared at the UMBRELLA underground facilities and lots of shooting in the scene with the soldiers! And Wesker tries to escape the place with a plane after the Alice killed all, Wesker blew up the whole facilities. Inside the plane, the REAL Alice came from behind and talks with Wesker. Alice was about to hit him but failed as Wesker injected her with an anti-virus that neutralized her power. OMG. She lost all her power and now she got to use her fighting and shooting skills. Still cool! ;)
Four months later, Alice pilot a plane heading to the place of so-called ‘Arcadia’ but found out that the island to be ‘no one’ there. But.. while recording her video, someone is running at the background, which is Claire Redfield, that reached the island with a helicopter (from the ending of from Extinction). So from here, Alice met up with Claire.
Riding the plane back to LA, California? if not mistaken. They found some civilians at the top of a building and trying to land on top of it. The story continues… I suggest you watch the movie.
A new monster that appeared in the bathroom, the Executioner, which I never saw before, looks so familiar with the one in Silent Hill, which is known as Pyramid Head, which dragged their weapon on the floor, anyway, Executioner looks bigger and stronger with it BIG weapon. Silent Hill monsters look nastier though! The Executioner actually from the latest console game, Resident Evil 5. This monster really nasty too! With hammer+axe that can split up a person into half! AWWW! and new clever zombies with tongue splitting and can go digging right into the bathroom! haha
Yeah, I love the weapons in RE Afterlife especially the samurai sword at the beginning of the movie and also the shotgun that shoots out coins instead of bullets, which Alice kept it as her ‘collection’ :) that’s NICE!
Alice and the others are looking for Arcadia (mentioned in the last movie Extinction) and actually, it is a ship that they thought of a safe place with humans but it ended up… to be a set up by UMBRELLA corporation, collecting humans for experiments by Albert Wesker the villain in the movie.
Just can’t wait for the Blu-ray of this Resident Evil Afterlife in HD ;)
Alice’s hair looks neat in this latest RE, compared with the previous Resident Evil, Resident Evil Apocalypse, Resident Evil Extinction, if you noticed it.
This movie also shows the reunion of the new character Albert Wesker (boss), Chris Redfield and Claire Redfield from previous RE Extinction.
Ok, that’s it! ;) Planning to watch for the second time in the cinema as it’s really worth it for just RM15 for 3D effects, action-packed and storyline. Anyway thumbs up. :)
