Resident Evil: Afterlife

Hmmm, strangely, I profess to being a bit of a fan of these films...

This one is visually stunning, with some excellent fight scenes and great 3D effects (inasmuch as I'm already getting bored with 3D in films and often have difficulty getting past the the fact that the action looks fake because of it).

However the plots for these films seem to be getting exponentially more and more outlandish with each outing that I'm struggling like this one apart from some of the set-pieces...

5/10

I also happen to really like such other well known turkeys as Hudson Hawk and Deep Blue Sea. I thought Battlefield Earth was hilarious...

I'm fairly sure that the makers of this film franchise didn't have the plot in mind when they made the movies.

However, I'm also a fan of this series. (Heck, I even own Ultraviolet - Resident Evil with vampires)
