Ranking the best Resident Evil movies
4. Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010)
With Resident Evil: Afterlife Paul Anderson returned to the director’s chair after the previous two instalments were handed to other directors, and delivered another entertaining zombie movie beginning with a spectacular action sequence in the evil Umbrella Corporation’s headquarters in Tokyo. The action then moves to Alaska, where a group of survivors are holed in a prison complex building, a survivor team that’s trying to reach a mysterious ship known as the Arcadia…
We also get to see new face-hugging zombies and one giant zombie chap wielding a massive hammer (also seen in the video games), who is the subject of a great action sequence involving Alice and her pal Claire Redfield. And despite some questionable use of CGI and slow motion, this is still an enjoyable zombie romp that did not quite reach the heights of earlier movies in the series.
