(au) wrote: About as mindless, generic, and stupid as you can get. Its so stupid it almost seems like a bloody action movie for kids. As the Resident Evil movies go on they get worse and drift further from the source material. The critics consensus nails it. RE: Afterlife is brainless. I could go into detail but why even bother when the filmmakers didn't put much thought into the movie? Its pretty pathetic actually. Slow motion stupidness to aid Milla's fading athleticism.... Sad.

(us) wrote: Quirky movie but a good one. Think I would have enjoyed it more if the subtitles would have been matched up better to the movie. It was difficult at times to figure out who was saying what. Interesting look into Icelandic life and how they live. Catch this flick if you come across it.

(jp) wrote: I didn't think of this in the erotic category, but even so it's not really erotic. It's more of a comedy/drama instead. The premise is quite ridiculous.
(au) wrote: About a decade later and Michael is on to the next generation. Definite bounce back returning to the original story after the disappointing and extremely forgettable Halloween 3. The town still trying to outrun the killer so nothing really new there, but the shocking ending makes it all worthwhile.
