Ring in New Year week with a pair of thrillers that go from one extreme to the other. For extreme violence and bloodshed there's 'Resident Evil: Afterlife,' the third sequel in the popular zombie franchise that stars Milla Jovovich as one of the last humans on Earth fighting off the Undead on her way to finding a safe haven for humanity. At the other extreme is the very slow thriller 'The American,' with George Clooney as a paid assassin who has the tables turned on him and has to go into hiding in the Italian countryside, where he goes through an existential catharsis. Happy New Year.
