Available on DVD this week:

“The American”: Melancholy and lyrical character study starring George Clooney as an assassin who hides out in Italy for one last assignment. (1:45; R for violence, sexual content and nudity) • •

“Resident Evil: Afterlife”: The fourth entry in the video game-spawned action-horror franchise is a hodgepodge of weak storytelling, lame dialogue, unscary zombies and a singularly uninspired arch-villain. Milla Jovovich rejoins fellow tough-as-nails chick Ali Larter to fight the undead. (1:30; R for sequences of strong violence and language)

“Twelve”: A young New York drug dealer (Chace Crawford) is pulled deeper into the deadly trade by his supplier (50 Cent). (1:38; R for strong drug content, alcohol abuse, language, sexual material, brief nudity and some violence, all involving teens)

Also available: “Legendary,” “Jersey Shore: Season Two”
