I must say, I’ve heard a lot about ‘Resident Evil’, but I haven’t seen everything. Thanks to our valiant television I saw ‘Apocalypse’, and the third part (albeit in fits and starts, but the meaning is mostly clear). The desire to see ‘Life After Death’ caught fire a month and a half ago, as if I decided that I was going to the cinema. Advertising from famous (and good) people, such as ‘new level 3D’, is firmly ingrained in the brain, and sometimes you also want to watch a movie ‘to unload’. Especially if you expect from this movie a mixture of action, action and ‘zombie movie’. I cannot say that the expectations were justified, because I myself did not know what I expected from the fourth ‘Abode’. But the fact that the movie did not disappoint is for sure.
First of all, I would like to highlight the soundtrack, because this component is worthy of the first place. Stylish, exciting, really cool music immediately, from the first frames and the first notes, makes you think that ‘I will like the movie’. The picture and the notorious 3D add even more confidence to this ‘like’. Those who have already seen the film believe that the quality of the new ‘Abode’ can be compared with the sensational ‘Avatar’. I haven’t seen Cameron’s tape, so I can’t compare, but I’ll tell you that the effect of three-dimensionality in ‘Abode’ is really cool. Even when I first saw the trailer in 3D on the big screen, I thought it was ‘deep’. And the truth is deep. The effect of presence may not be so strong throughout the entire screen time, but at some moments … This movie can develop a reaction quite well, because the first half of the film is hard to believe that the ax / knife / blood flying at you is not real. Its hard to believe that this is just a projection, and even more difficult to force yourself to sit still, not trying to dodge objects flying at you. By the way, I do not recommend especially impressionable ones – two persons were sitting with me for about thirty years and each time after ‘contact with that reality’ they sighed loudly and were baptized.
The actors / characters, perhaps, liked everyone. Special thanks and admiration go, of course, towards Milla Jovovich. Fights beautifully, shoots beautifully, and just looks beautiful. The most important and most interesting character, it was her play that gave the film and the whole Story with the ‘Abodes’ the necessary and correct shade. I also remember Albert Wesker – in my opinion, the image is perfectly conveyed. Cruel, cold-blooded, there is not a drop of charm in him, but with something his character catches. Probably because he is the main villain. The third character that I remember is a former producer (yes, I remember him so much that I now cannot remember his name). Okay, sorry, the name isn’t that important. The role itself is important, it is important how the actor played such a character, and a small note of humor, albeit a bit cruel, is important. In my opinion, this is one of the brightest and most memorable characters in the fourth part.
From the above, you might think that the film deserves a ‘tens’. Not quite so, it’s time for tar. Plot. The plot is like a bunch of episodes strung on a thin narrative thread. On a thread so thin that it sometimes disappears completely, forcing the action to sag. Sometimes it’s too long, but I’m not going to talk about predictability – everything is clear anyway. From about twenty minutes. Although, there are still small turns, they are captivating, but they may seem too illogical to you.
So, let’s summarize. The film is definitely worth watching (because of Milla, 3D, or simply because of the love for the ‘Abodes’). But count on the fact that there is no special meaning in this movie and that the plot does not shine with originality. You will be less disappointed. For example, I was not disappointed at all.
