This film picks a while after the previos films but is still a continuation. Alice still as her superhuman like powers and she is joined by serveral hundred (maybe more) clones. Alone as powerful as her and all out for vengeance against the Umbrella corporation. The company that created them and the T Virus which was destroying the human race. So your average doomsday story.
In this installment we meet a member of the umbrella corporation who as injected themself's with the T Virus but unlike Alice it as not taken to him. So he injects Alice and makes her human again. For which she thanks him and goes off to search for Arcadia (Mentioned in a previous film) and the survivors she sent there (same film).
Lots of good special effects and action sequences. It also bought in characters from the previos film and it bought the plot into the line with game. Upon which it is loosely based. It was also good to see Milla Jovovich as Alice and of course the clones. Which must of been taxing for her. Which was one of many good points to the film.
However good the action sequence may have been. I found that the film still lacked some crediablity for me. The guy from umbrella, why did he inject himself with the T Virus, it was never explained and why were they still coming after people at the end. Alice was no longer a threat, she was now human surrounded by other humans. To go after them would be sucide for her and none of the survivors would go after them. They might get infected.
Some high notes for me, Wentworth Miller......drawl..... Some stronger more nastier looking creatures. Oh and Alice and several humans stuck in a prisoner with no chance of escape. Millions of creatures clawing at the walls trying to get in. Further more a ship with the name Arcadia on the side. Not far away but with no signs of life onboard, mystery anyone.
A Film trying to hard, that we hope to god they don't make a sequal of.
Despite being highly derivative of everything from The Matrix (bullet-time), Blade (reaper strain zombies), 28 Days Later (rage infected zombies) and Dawn of the Dead (stuck in a building besieged by zombies) to pinching other little bits and nuances from classics such as Terminator (Tiltrotor aircrafts) and Aliens, Resident Evil: Afterlife is still an enjoyable addition to the Resident Evil series and a pretty decent film in its own right.
Afterlife is set after the events of Resident Evil: Extinction which I didn't see but I understand that Alice (Milla Jovovich) was not only infected with the T-Virus making her stronger and faster but she was also cloned and the opening scenes are of a group of Alice clones trying to kill Albert Wesker (Shawn Roberts) at the Umbrella base in Japan.
Alice is unsuccessful in killing Wesker and upon hearing emergency broadcasts she heads for Arcadia in Alaska, where she hopes to find other survivors including Claire Redfield (Ali Larter), K-Mart (Spencer Locke). She finds Claire but Claire is being controlled by some Umbrella device and has also lost her memory. They fly to Los Angeles and find a group of survivors holed up in a prison besieged by zombies.
Luther West (Boris Kodjoe) is a former basketball star and celebrity and he is de facto leader of a small group of survivors. There are new tunnelling zombies (which are a bit daft) and also The Executioner - a giant axe-happy ogre looking zombie (really, really daft) that Alice and Claire must kill before fleeing from the overrun prison and escaping hopefully to safety.
Some elements of the Resident Evil 5 videogame such as the inclusion of Wesker have been incorporated but you don't really need to be an aficionado of the games to enjoy the film. The direction is good, without ever being anything special. The music is pretty irritating and the script is reasonable for this sort of film.
Resident Evil Afterlife was reviewed by The Sun newspaper as being 'the best Resident Evil sequel yet', which is probably about right, it's not really got the suspense or originality of the first Resident Evil film but it certainly beats Resident Evil: Apocalypse (2004) but as I said I've not seen the third instalment - Extinction - so I can't comment on that.
It's a fun film, with some good fight sequences that despite being very Matrix-like are still entertaining. In terms of it being a horror film, it's about as frightening as a box of fluffy kittens but if you watch it just as entertainment it'll still pass the time fairly nicely.
