YMMV / Resident Evil: Afterlife

  • Ear Worm: The opening theme has been known to induce random audience head-bobbing.
  • He's Just Hiding: Before the release of Resident Evil: Retribution, fans speculated that Wesker survived the helicopter mini-nuke at the ending of the movie. This is supported by some eagle-eyed viewers noticing a parachute opening in the distance when one of the characters revealed himself to have survived. Wesker's survival was later confirmed by a press release for Retribution.
  • Idiot Ball: The world has been all but destroyed with a tiny population of still living humans remaining and Umbrella is still pissing about with bio-organic weaponry.
  • Narm:
    • Wesker must ingest fresh DNA.
    • The T-Virus being shaped like actual Ts.
    • Star power, bitches!
    • Claire backing away from the Executioner looks like she's breakdancing.
  • Take That, Scrappy!: Alice gets brought down to normal, ends up on the receiving end of a Curb-Stomp Battle and has all her clones wiped out. For many, it was considered to be the best thing that the directors did to try and redeem the films. But since Alice still is the only character to actually do anything, and is somehow still capable of doing rather ludicrous stunts even without superpowers, it's ultimately kind of a moot point.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot: The previous film has it to where Alice stumbles upon an entire storage unit of her clones and pretty much makes an army. The build up to this movie was pretty much based around the fact there was an army of superpowered women taking on Umbrella. In the first five minutes of Afterlife, all of them are killed after the base in Tokyo self destructs. A lot of fans looking forward to this were obviously ticked off.
