I know the RAZZIES considered all 3 previous Resident Evil movies for their awards for '002, '004, and '007. I thought Apocalypse was the worst of those 3, and I regret not putting Extinction on my Worst List for '007. 

And now it's come to Afterlife. Considering the poor reviews on the previous three, I don't see how this is going to be any better... but how bad will the reviews be? Alas, I'll still be surprised if this gets an actual nominations.

Okay, so this movie seems to be made up entirely of weapons being thrown towards the camera for cheap 3-D thrills. Not to mention this is the 4th installment of the series (and we all know how good fourth installments are!). And, on top of all that, if you recall from the last "R.E." movie, there's going to be a small army of Milla Jovovich clones in this movie because, I don't know, the producers thought one Milla with her 1-D acting wasn't enough -- we needed more of her. 

Hey, maybe that's why the movie had to shot in 3-D -- to make up for all the characters being so 1-Dimensional!

I can sum this movie up in a few sounds and actions:

Bang bang, somebody dies, bang bang, somebody dies, a cameraman shouting 'Who needs charachter development when you have fighting and pointless CGI?', bang bang, another sh*t load of people die, bang bang, fight the villain, bang bang, hero walks away, Paul W.S Anderson shouting 'BRING ON THE SEQUEL!'

Oh no, I wasn't being "cold and harsh" I think it's laugh out loud funny, because it's so true! Come on, have you seen any of these movies? Anyone on-screen who isn't Milla Jovovich is automatically just another number for the body count. And this is the 4th movie of the series and we STILL know NOTHING about Milla's character, not even her last name. Yeah, 1-D to say the least!

Summary of this movie? You just summed up this ENTIRE "R E" SERIES! I wouldn't be surprised is that's the exact same plotline that Paul Worthless S*** Anderson pitches to the studio every two or three years!

I saw Resident Evil: Extinction, and I'm curious as to how continuity between the two movies is going to work out. 
 
First, she has an army of a hundred or so clones of herself after Extinction.  If those 100+ clones have screen time, does that mean if we nominate her, it counts 100+ times? . . .
 
Second, the trailer she is going to Alaska, which is where the band of remaining humans were told to go. 
 
Third, I thought the corporation was located in Tokyo in Extinction.  The trailer makes it seem it is suddenly located in Los Angeles.
 
Fourth, it's everything that FRR and BHB said it is.  If you're not Milla Jovovich's Alice, you're lucky to make it to the next movie.  If you are Milla Jovovich's Alice, you are two dimensional, and we have no feel for who you are as a person, let alone anyone else in the film.  It's a video game adaptation, so it has the depth of a badly written hack-and-slash, bang/boom video game.

I've noticed that the plot-holes in the "RE" movies are just as Grand-Canyon-sized as the plot-holes in between the recent "Star Wars" prequels and the original movies. 

But then again, if you're willing to pay to see Milla Jovovich running around and shooting everything in sight, you probably don't give a s*** about plot-lines!!

This is my first post  here on Razzies.com, and need I say, HeadRazz, you're right about Resident Evil: Afterlife. It is too late to cash in on the 3-D. Just ask the creators of Piranha 3-D. It's a good movie (by the looks of it) but, It was just too late! (Unless you made a movie, a-la Despicable Me-or-any-other-good-ish 3-D movie!) 

Anyhoo, I'm going to watch Tomorrow, When The War Began on the Weekend, and it AIN'T 3-D! (Thank Darnly!) Hope you make me feel welcome! 

(P.S: Once, I was bashed on a Virtual Pet site, and taking it out on crap like this!)

Hey Miguel, if you think Burn was "cold and heartless," wait till you read this! As a gamer who absolutely loves the Resident Evil game series, I can think of nothing good that will come from this movie. Here are my reasons why:  

1. WHO THE f**k IS ALICE! YOU'RE NOT EVEN IN THE GAME!
2. Milla Jovavich is a sh*tty actress, and Paul ws Anderson is a sh*tty director -  nuff said.  
3. Each movie has been one steaming pile of moose sh*t after another
4. The trailer doesn't even look good, it tries to be cool, but it just looks cheesy and dumb...FAIL!
5. WHO THE f**k IS ALICE... SERIOUSLY! 

I may sound harsh in prejudging this film, but to be fair I'm only basing my opinion on how insanely bad all the other movies were. And on a slightly off topic side note, Milla Jovavich once said in an interview that she took an underground game (Resident Evil) and made it a big name 'cause of her movies... burn in hell Milla, you're an awful person. Big smile  

And on another off topic but still important note, I'M AT 100 POSTS! I"m gonna catch up yo you guys yet!

*Do video-game-to-movie adaptations ever have any potential?  

*Who the (beep) does Milla Jovovich think she is?! Claiming she singlehandedly put the Resident Evil series on the map?! If she knew anything about GameCube, she'd know that gamers (including me) hold Resident Evil 4 (the original 2005 game) as among the best of the "Decade of the 00-Agents."

*Who are people to think Milla Jovovich has any merit in her looks, good or bad, when she usually can't act?  

*Didn't Paul W. Scott-Anderson and Milla get married last year? Scott-Anderson has been a crew member in... it's now been 7 films that the RAZZIES have tagged, including 2 of the 30 worst films of 2004.   

*What's with those 4 foot long axe blades? Shouldn't those be kept to games they would fit in, and NOT brought into movies incoherently?What's with those 4 foot long axe blades? Shouldn't those be kept to games they would fit in, and NOT brought into movies incoherently?

Congrats on your 100th post. But what this gamer is saying is what all fans of the game think: He's just telling it like it is, because it's the truth. There is no Alice in the game, and these movies have been a joke since day one. They have been nothing but star vehicles for Milla Jovovich and an excuse for Paul Worthless S*** Anderson to get steady work. Yeah, Milla, "Resident Evil" was an "underground" game. Nah, chances are, if Hollywood is making a movie of it, it's because it was selling units in the millions BEFOREHAND.

I seem to remember that another film in this series came out last fall or so, at least, I remember ads. And it was NOT Extinction or Afterlife, it had a different title. So, isn't this the 5th installment??  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: I actually went to the IMDb page for "Movie Connections" regarding this title before writing the entry that appears at the head of this Forum. Here's http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1220634/movieconnections - to that IMDb page, which lists only 3 previous RESIDENT EVIL films. 

Maybe you have confused this series with something similar??  After all, bad video-game-based movies are generic and interchangeable...

Yeah, it was a CGI movie that had NOTHING to do with the Milla Jovovich movies, so this is the FOURTH movie fo the series. 

Get this, that CGI movie (looks to the left, looks to right, leans foward while covering one side of his mouth and whispers) It was actually based on the video game. 

Crazy, I know!

I did kinda like Silent Hill, Even though it had a few glaring problems, mainly dialogue. I do think a Halo movie would be amazing, especially if it had this kind of intensity:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0iXs01piok - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0iXs01piok

I also wouldn't mind a Mass Effect and/or Shadow of the Colossus movie if placed in the right hands, unfortunately that never happens.

Nah, chances are if Hollywood is making a movie of it, it's because it was selling units in the millions BEFOREHAND.

PREACHER PREACH! That's exactly how i feel, they didn't respect the story, got the tone WAY wrong and just made it mind numbingly stupid. I'm all for turning your brain off once in awhile, but these movies are insulting, if there's any movie that can unseat Grown Ups off my list as worst movie of the year, it would be this one.

Holy crap...  Head-Razz I just had an amazing idea for a new category this year, screw "worst ensemble cast" and "worst excuse for a rom-com". Let's try The "You Raped my Eye Award" for worst 3d Movie... or something like that, there are plenty of nominees to chose from and even more on their way. And it would get this movie (and Clash of the Titans) on the Nominating Ballot for sure.

Also, kind of off topic but i used to watch this show called X-Play alot and they did a thing on video game movies. It was pretty funny, and the Ah-Nnuld impersonator always cracked me up:  

http://g4tv.com/videos/15396/X-Plays-I-Have-A-Dreamcast/ - http://g4tv.com/videos/15396/X-Plays-I-Have-A-Dreamcast/

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Actually, among the special categories under already consider for this year is what we're calling Worst Eye-Gouging Use of 3-D. Here's http://www.razzies.com/forum/topic4210_post30475.html#30475 - to a Forum Poll we conducted earlier this year on the subject of special categories for http://razzies.com/join.asp - Worst Excuse for a Rom-/Com...

Let me say this first: 
 
I am not a fan of the "Reident Evil" video games, and that of course does'nt mean I like the movies.
 
Unfortunately, I have seen all three previous movies, and they have gotten progressively worse after each one. If I had to say which was the worst, then I would say the third..it is a steaming pile of horse manure (with apologies to all horses and manure piles!). At least the first was somewhat "so-bad-it's-good," but the second and third have no redeeming features at all.

So, by my reckoning, the fourth installment in this lovely series is going to be the worst.
I'm kind of surprised they have lasted this long, since they haven't made that much money...

Another huge mystery is the Rotten Tomatoes ratings. On September 11... amongst higher critics, one in 7 thought it was okay while the other 6 hated it. With the lower level critics, it's vice versa.

UPDATE: As of September 12, apparently the ratio for lower level critics is down to: 3 like it for every 1 who dislikes it instead of 6 to 1.

I'm surprised this didn't go straight-to-DVD.  Guess the RE movies must be making enough money at the theatres to make it worth it.  Of course, DVD sales are lagging nowadays, so maybe going straight-to-DVD is so dicy that we won't be seeing that as much anymore...

Time for the penultimate review of the Resident Evil franchise. After Extinction sucked to high heaven, Worthless Sh*t Anderson decided to get back into the director's chair. With this one, I noticed a pattern with the Resident Evil franchise. Remember how in the original Star Trek movies, the even numbered ones were good and the odd ones sucked? With Resident Evil, the odd numbered ones are horrible, while the even numbered ones plainly suck.

 
There's one actor in this that I like and that's Kim Coates. He plays a sleazy producer named Bennett. I'm not sure how much of my enjoyment of his performance is due to actual quality or me being a Sons Of Anarchy fanboy, but still. I, also, enjoyed the opening scene where Alice's clones wiped out a bunch of Wesker's troops. It was, surprisingly, well directed. But, without a doubt, my favorite thing about this movie was that Worthless Sh*t finally started listening to his critics. He had more homages to the games in this and, best of all, Alice get her God mode Sue status taken away. All her clones are blown up, her psychic powers are taken away, and her fights are more balanced.
 
Now to point out the film's many flaws. Wentworth Miller is crappy as Chris Redfield. His interactions with his sister Claire come off as being more like lovers than siblings. Shawn Roberts is crappy as Albert Wesker. In his first scene he underplays him and for the rest he goes way over-the-top. Part of this could be Worthless Sh*t making Wesker a cannibal. Since the scenes where he "ingests fresh DNA" are so hilariously dumb, maybe Roberts went with the crazy flow.
 
Despite her character being reigned in, Jovovich's performance got worse. Maybe it's because she knows that if the director asks her to try better, he'll have to sleep on the couch tonight. But, as bad as she is, she's nowhere near as bad as Ali Larter. With this film, Larter establishes herself as one of the worst actresses of our time. Her character gets amnesia and forgets who she is and Worthless Sh*t probably forgot why he cast her in the first place. He claims that it was her role in Heroes, but since any episode of Heroes was less watchable than all the Resident Evil movies combined, I find this claim hard to believe. And the special effects are still crappy as Hell.
 
Now for the part where I rip into Worthless Sh*t. Aside from the opening scene, the action is terrible and boring. The end fight with Alice, Wesker, Chris, and Claire is one of most poorly shot action finales in memory. There's a terribly shot action scene in the shower room that shows how little Worthless Sh*t cared. A zombie pops out from a place where we (and Alice) should have seen it before. But, pay attention to the showers in the background. In one shot they're off, but in another they're on, then off again, and so on and so on. Another sign of how little Worthless Sh*t cared is the prescence of the ocean. See, in the last one, we're told that the T-virus somehow caused all the water in the world to dry up. That doesn't make any damn sense and only seemed to be there so Worthless Sh*t could rip-off Mad Max, but okay. So, why in the Hell is there an ocean if all the water's dried up? But, the worst thing about the film is how Worthless Sh*t shot the 3-D. You now how in Avatar, Hugo, and Hell even Trannies Three, the 3-D seemed seemless? Here, it's incredibly obvious.
 
I can't wait until I'm finally done with this series. Grade: C-
 
Next-up: Resident Evil: Retribution!
