Resident Evil...really?


Today was my first day as a second year university student, so this seems like a good time to write about Resident Evil. I watched Afterlife a few days ago in 3D and while I enjoyed the film, I feel that there is something completely wrong with the movie franchise.

I must say, I adore the games, RE is one of my favourite game series'. I can't understand how they produce films of a standard so far below that of the games.

The first three films took very little from the games, a few characters (no Leon?), Umbrella, Nemesis, Raccoon City and some other stuff; I can live with that. But for Afterlife, Anderson took several elements from RE 5 the axeman, new zombies, some dialogue and a scene from a cgi cut scene, I could live with this stuff, if it made sense. No explanation was given for the new enemies, Chris and Claire were given no back story and stealing an entire scene from the game just seems lazy. At least the silver dollar shotguns were pretty awesome.

I guess it would have been better if they had used a different title, then I wouldn't build my expectations only to be disappointed. 

I should have another post later, I guess I'm in the mood for blogging.
