Movie Screening: Resident Evil Afterlife

Special thanks to Nuffnang for giving me another pair of tickets to catch a movie^^ *whee*

I would also like to thank them for giving me my Gliteratti status once again!! *big smile*

Before the screening, we took two group shots with the two "cos-players": the umbrella corporation soldier and the hot Alice :D

Take 1: JayLeo taken hostage!!

From left to right (standing): Tony, Pennie, Umbrella dude, Me, Alice, Henry
From left to right (down): JayLeo, Baboon, Jayren, XX (there's always an XX in my pic *pai seh ya*) and Shii Teck.

Sorry ya, the picture is kinda dark cause I feel that my camera flash will make everyone look ugly, thus explaining my love for not taking pictures using flash :S

And here's ninja Henry!! and btw, we both got a pair of gloves each :D :D


Runtime: 97mins

Plot: In a world ravaged by a virus infection, turning its victims into the Undead, Alice (Jovovich), continues on her journey to find survivors and lead them to safety. Her deadly battle with the Umbrella Corporation reaches new heights, but Alice gets some unexpected help from an old friend. A new lead that promises a safe haven from the Undead takes them to Los Angeles, but when they arrive the city is overrun by thousands of Undead - and Alice and her comrades are about to step into a deadly trap.


My verdict: 6/10

I didnt really enjoy the movie. Although there were certain parts which made me jump of my seat, I found that

1. The action is kinda fake. As in it's over board at times, and not as nice as it could be.

2. The storyline is kinda dull and predictable.

3. I don't really fancy the movie being portrayed in a game-like way. It's just weird to me, it's a movie, not a game.

4. I preferred the first ever resident evil whereby the lasers cut through people like tofu! lol~

And I apologise for the late review, I know I should have posted this up before you guys paid Rm18 to watch it in 3D, because honestly, I dont think watching its worth it.

wow. 6/10? nt good? yea. agree wiv u, kinda dull & predictable.

I actually skipped d previous 3 sequels of Resident Evil =p this was my 1st one. I think it's 1 of d best use of 3D technology after Avatar.

Maybe Transformers 3 will be even better. This film will be average for me if I minus the 3D effects

haha, well yea, the 3D action scenes are kinda cool. but dunno leh, maybe a little too fake for me :S

Transformers 3..i hope it'll be good. The 2nd transformers wasnt as good as the 1st one too :(

yea, bit fake. Yet, that's how most movies are today =\ fake fake & fake. LOL

I'm trying to comfort myself that this movie will be the nicest out of the 3 we had. Going the Distance has the story, Resident Evil has the effects, Cats & Dogs have the laughter.
