Wish I had a 3D HDTV and 3D bluray player.  Does the 3D version have a 2D disc as well or is it actually a seperate purchase?  I wouldn't mind spending a little more to have the 2D version now and the 3D version for later if I can upgrade to 3D!

 Does the 3D version have a 2D disc as well ??

 Yes, All of Sony's Blu-ray 3D titles (with the exception of the World Cup Soccer movie) have both the 3D & 2D versions on the same disc.When you select "Play Movie," there will be a little pop-up asking you which version you wish to view.  Also, The covers of the Sony titles are see-through, turning the back page of the insert into the "background" of the 3D cover. A very nice touch on Sony's part.

I want to buy this the day of its release but I think I need to wait to hear whether the picture quality of the 2D version is superior to the 2D version included on the 3D release.

2d pq looks very good to me. Most of the first 2 thirds is really dark and I don't see anything bad in the quality. Only thing I see that is bad is the movie, pretty much a bore until around the last 20 minutes or so.

I've had a chance to watch the 3d version of the film in its entirety and a portion of the 2d film.  The 3d version is the one to watch.  Contrast and black levels are much stronger in 3d.  2d the film just doesn't impress in the visual department.  Looks somewhat washed out, not much pop. If it wasn't for the 3d elements in the film, I would've shut the film off.  For a film that's supposed to be of the survival horror genre, there's not a single scary moment, even with the 3d.  Basically, I felt this was more of a full length 3d tech demo than an actual movie

Well the film was given a sort of sepia color scheme to convey that this is the post-civilization world. Not so much tinted sepia, just most colors have been removed. I agree the film is not scary, but I'm not sure that is a bad thing. The zombies are the enemy, but at this point anyone who is still alive manages to keep their fear under control. If they couldn't, they wouldn't be the survivors. I was surprised someone liked the last 20 minutes. I've seen lots of criticism about the last act. I liked the first act the best, myself.

I posted that before I watched the last 20 minutes so I take it back the entire movie was a bore.

I saw it last night and enjoyed it; I have a question though:
Who is the woman in the mid end-credit sequence supposed to be?  Are we even supposed to know?  I am familiar with the video games up through Resident Evil 4, and still didn't recognize her.  I also saw Jill Valentine in the credits, but don't remember her in the movie.  Is this supposed to be her?  If so, is it the same actress that played her in part 2?

Ooh, there's a $5 coupon for SALT inside the BluRay of RE:A! Expires in only 3 months, but, good if you're quick. It says "may not be combined with any other offer or discount", so it MIGHT not work during sales. No doubt different retailers will interpret it in their own way.

actually it's the same actress, just a different look to her. Sienna Guillory playing Jill Valentine, in both films.

The 3D version couldn't play in 3D (2D was ok) on the Panasonic player. Worked fine in 3D on the PS3.

By the way for PS3 users when you have the Resident Evil: Afterlife Blu-ray disc in your PS3, but not playing, you can go into the Game section of the XMB and a Resdent Evil: Afterlife PS3 Theme is available for installing. This also applies to the Salt Blu-ray, in that it has a Salt PS3 Theme available for installing. Not all Sony discs are currently doing this, but some are, so you might want to check any new Sony Blu-rays you get to see if they include PS3 themes on them.

Thanks for the tip!


It is largely just a wallpaper, of Milla firing the guns while doing a Trinity out a window (the cover art of the BluRay). But still nice to have -- I haven't installed any other wallpapers for my PS3 but this reminds me that I could!
