Critics reviews

The creation of Resident Evil: Afterlife (2010) was described by Anderson as “making my first movie all over again,” and with it the series fully comes into its own—testified to by the fact that the use of umbrellas during the impressive viral-outbreak opening on a rainy, populated Tokyo street crossing feels less like a quote from Hitchcock (Foreign Correspondent, 1940) or Johnnie To (Sparrow, 2008) than a pun on the evil corporation’s name.

Anderson’s sense of action and movement had substantially improved since the original Resident Evil, and Afterlife’s opening is a small marvel of choreographed cheesiness, a slow-motion tableau of throwing stars and sub-machine gun fire. It never comes across as kitschy or campy, in part because Anderson never gives the impression that he thinks he’s an artist. He’s organizing and presenting entertainment—and that, in and of itself, is a kind of art.
