Overall this movie is more for Resident Evil fans then the general movie goer, but it does offer lots of action scenes and not to many scares for a Resident evil movie.
Action = 8/10
Fear factor = 4/10
Overall = 7 1/2 / 10
IF you love Resident Evil you will like this movie
The movie starts off with a brief narrative, then uses a few quick flashbacks to catch up any new viewers, or us old guys who forget a lot. The movie seems to have digressed into a "B" horror movie as Milla loses her superhuman powers, which was the reason why we watched these things in the first place. Now her lack of powers doesn't prevent her from fighting 13 million dead people in LA. Of course we just don't have dead people anymore. Some have become dead mole people and one guy was a huge orc/troll/Jason creature with super dead-human strength. What was that supposed to be?
The new cast of characters are boring. The special effects were great. The script was very bad for a sequel. I felt raped.
Up until now, Paul W.S. Anderson's cinematic vision has been logically focused on a tight narrative around his character, Alice, in a Resident Evil universe comprised of a very large, multinational conglomerate known as The Umbrella Group, or more simply, Umbrella.
Starting from the beginning, Alice, a special agent of Umbrella, learns that her employer is engaged in unethical and illegal biotech engineering that has now breached its boundaries, thanks to industrial espionage, and is now experimenting on the world unilaterally.
A series of viruses have been introduced that simultaneously kills and re-animates life and much later takes over lives. This starts with zombies but progressively leads to much more deadly life-forms.
In this sequel, Alice has watched her own facility be breached, lived through Umbrella's betrayal of mankind, watched the world's populace seemingly vanish, led a rag-tag group of survivors, discovered that Umbrella has placed tracking into her body, discovered that she has had clones made of herself, discovered that one man, Wesker, is seemingly behind this heinous betrayal, and now attempts to engage Umbrella and Wesker in a pre-emptive strike that will, hopefully, end Umbrella's domination.
That said, this film is an action flick broken into four sequences: attacking Umbrella's HQ; returning to "Arcadia"; leading survivors in L.A.; and, exploring the rescue ship.Read more ›
Second) I have watched and enjoyed the previous 3 Resident Evil movies and I have played and enjoyed all of the primary Resident Evil games (0-5).
With these two points in mind, I can honestly say that Resident Evil: Aftermath is a good movie and a good edition to the Resident Evil franchise.
The most frusterating thing I hear about the Resident Evil movies is that they don't follow the game storylines. This is simply untrue. The movies fit nicely in amongst the game franchise as follows:
The first movie takes place between Resident Evil 0 and 1.
The second movie takes place during Resident Evil 2 and 3.
The third movie takes place after Resident Evil 3.
The fourth movie takes place between Resident Evil 4 and 5.
Are there still some holes in the plot, sure. But they do there best with a 2 hour movie, aimed at appealing to a mass audience as well as the "fans", while staying as true to such a vast franchise as possible.
The biggest difference and arguement Resident Evil game fans have is "Alice". However, I don't understand their frusteration, there's no reason an "Alice" character couldn't co-exist in the overall franchise storyline while not appearing in the games. The games don't cover the ENTIRE world at any one point!
The following are a few elements to the movie that I enjoyed, without spoiling anything for you:
The movie starts after Resident Evil: Extinction (I think a year later or something) and does a good job of continuing the established movie storyline.
Wesker is in the movie and absolutely fantastic.Read more ›
