Milla Jovovich returns once again to battle the insane viral infection that has transformed most of the human race into undead creatures, but this time she's bringing friends, including a battalion of butt-kicking clones, tough sidekick Claire Redfield (Ali Larter) and newbee warriors. This feels like zombiefied life after death, and I for one wish the genre would just stay dead. Grade: D.
Based on real-life exploits of the husband-and-wife team that opened and operated Nevada's Mustang Ranch (the first legal brothel in the country), 'Love Ranch' holds the seedy promise of a 1970s period piece bubbling over with all the nudity, camp humor and tantalizing danger of a Russ Meyers' movie.
Instead, the film plays it so safe that the only thing holding it together is Helen Mirren's flawless performance as an elegant brothel madam with a showboating husband (played by a miscast Joe Pesci). Grade: C-.
