Anderson borrows from other films. The tank ride where a chained Alice is first chased by zombies before fighting her way on top of the massive vehicle is reminiscent of George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road (2015). There’s a siege that feels like it was cribbed from Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002). Underground, where Alice and her crew are avoiding booby traps, otherworldly purple light pervades the frame, making it seem like the sequence was inspired by Dario Argento’s Suspiria.
Sure, The Final Chapter hardly has the elegance or novelty to be worth remembering for years to come.
However, its being a mishmash of cheap and heavily computer generated reproductions of scenes from better films gives its indisputable juvenilia a certain sophistication that is sort of charming. – Rappler.com
