The third film was great. Hopefully Milla reprises her role in the fourth one.

I think to like the third film you have to be a fan of George A Romero's Day of the Dead. They're alike in many ways. A lot of the criticism comes from the Alice/Tyrant fight being so short.

I thought the second film was extremely enjoyable but the other two were just "good". The second one was like a live action video game even with a boss monster who you fleetingly meet once and then have a final fight with, two different heroines teaming up, and a great premise of the city being sealed off by the military as it gets taken over with a sense of geography and everything.

^ That's a good point. Apocalypse feels like a video game.

Re: Resident Evil: Afterlife - It's Happening

Speaking as a non-gamer I thought the first one was a good film. Its influences are quite apparent and their is little originality thematically. However, its execution was competent and that saves it. The sequels fall into the sad cliche of apparently not trying and were lackluster and only passingly entertaining for spurts.

RE:4 could be a good film to revitalize the franchise and pump some fresh blood into it ala T:4 and BBegins.
