A perfectly forgettable and completely useless remake of "Mad Max 2" - just with some zombies replacing the neo-barbarians
on 17 June 2014
This film is again inferior to the first installment in the franchise and as bad as the second part - and honestly I am sorry that I bought and watched it. Below, more of my impressions, with some SPOILERS.
As in previous parts, in the beginning of this film Alice (Milla Jovovich) wakes up in a mansion, naked, bruised and unable to remember jack... As you can see it on the cover of the DVD, after some events which I will not describe she will find herself in the middle of a desert and ultimately meet a convoy of vehicles in which travel some of the survivors from Raccoon City, including Claire Redfield (Ali Larter), Carlos Oliveira (Oded Fehr) and L.J. (Mike Epps). Together they will try find some safe haven from the hords of undead. But of course Umbrella Corporation has other plans...
I didn't like this film much, as the scenario is weak, dialogs poor and humourless and action scenes are just a boring repetition of slaughter. All characters which could do or say something interesting and therefore give some shadow and take some screen time from Milla Jovovich (who, let's not forget it, is married to the producer of the whole franchise), well, they are all immediately eliminated...
The only reason why I give this film two stars is because of the first two and last three minutes, which are indeed worthy watching. Otherwise this whole thing is a perfectly forgettable loss of time. AVOID!
