REEL DEAL: Resident Evil After Life

It was my first time to see the Resident Evil series in a movie house, because I always watch it in HBO or other movie channels (of course cuts are already applied) And I was anticipating a different kind of experience with this one as it said to follow the original plot from the game. Also for this version, it also incorporates the newest 3D technology for cinemas (however, the one I watched was not in 3D... too bad)

As I could see it, this one is kinda weak in terms of the plot. Not that I have known the origibnal story, but the other elements are so predictable and was too focused  more in the effects. Also a heartbreaking fact is there are a lot of scenes that one may notice to be too immprobable in reality and physics. The effect however was good and did justify the ambiance of a world filled with zombies.

It seems like a simple family movie plus a lot of bloody violence. Prepare your heart though, since it suspense at is was originally created. I'm currently confused if this may or may not have another sequel. The effort was good but we need more entertainment...
Deliberation time kids!

Movie summary in 3 lines: Plants vs Zombies!
Technical Effects 3 out of 5 stars
(Still decent technical effects, altough it puposely made slow motions to ephasize 3D effects)
Plot 1 out of 5 stars (I know what will happen in the first place)
Popcornmeter (the rating if this movie would make you hungrier while watching) 2 out of 5 stars (Do you want zombies with that?)
Acting and Actors 3 out of 5 stars (fair enough)
DVD worthiness 3 out of 5 stars (given you have a 3D TV)
Sequel worthiness 3 out of 5 stars (works fine with me)
Overall Rating 3 out of 5 stars (Kinda sad since it does have nice effects, but it really seems awkward with the plot, hope they learn from these mistakes)
