Resident Evil: Afterlife

Despite (or because of) warnings to not raise my expectations, I will find this to be the best Resident Evil movie released in the last couple of years. It will perfectly fit the Resident Evil-shaped void in my soul that has been growing larger with each passing day that I don't see a Resident Evil movie.

At least once during the movie, I will turn to my wife and say, "I'm really glad that Milla Jovovich decided to embrace being an action movie star." I might then try to equate her to a young Sigourney Weaver. I might, then, launch into a "bit" about how weird "Sigourney" is, as a name. (Though I will only do so if it is a slow part of the film. But, c'mon! Look at that poster over there ---> Does that look like the poster of a film which will go more than 30 seconds without action?)


Any failings I find the movie to have, I will write off as my own fault for neglecting to see the film as the director intended: In 3D. 

FINAL PREVIEW SCORE (A to F): B+
