Well I hope everyone had an amazing weekend. For me it was well needed and the weather was again beautiful. A great time to relax and regroup for the coming week and take in a film via Netflix's watch instantly capabilities. The film I screened this time was the third part of a trilogy thus far, entitled RESIDENT EVIL: AFTERLIFE.

This film directed by Paul W. S. Anderson, written by Paul W. S. Anderson, produced by Paul W. S. Anderson, Jermy Bolt, Don Carmody, Bernd Eichinger, Samuel Hadida, and Robert Kulzer, starring Milla Jovovich, Ali Larter, and Wentworth Miller.

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. Written by Screen Gems

A fan of the first two installments of this film family, and a fan of the zombie genre. I would have to say this film started off slow due to all the recapping giving you a sense of where the last film left off. Yet when we got into the new AFTERLIFE story it really took off. Never playing the popular video game which the films have been based on I wonder if I am missing any of the deeper layers to this story? Either way this film kept it fresh and even pushed past the excitement of the previous films. To say it was better than the original is hard to say, but it kept me entertained and happy, so I give it 3 1/2 stars.
