Zombies and Black Pleather for Video Game Fans
This is also what watching Resident Evil: Afterlife 3D is like, except that it lasts for much longer.
Alice (Milla Jovavich) is back and humorless as ever as she battles the nefarious Umbrella Corporation and joins forces with a small band of survivors in a Los Angeles prison, which is surrounded (obviously) by the undead. They are all curious about mysterious rescue broadcasts they have heard.
Hopes are dashed.
Alice takes a shower.
They escape into the sewer.
Along the way, there is a lot of senseless slowing of motions and freezing of frames, for the benefit of 3-D. And possibly to make it seem more like a video game. However, the music, which sounds like synth-pop out of a can, is definitely inferior to that of many actual video games.
That this is the fourth installment of the Resident Evil franchise, and that this film grossed more than $90 million in its first week, is testament to the purchasing power of teenage boys and their more mature counterparts.
