Meanwhile, traveling through the Nevada Desert and the ruins of Las Vegas, Carlos Olivera, L.J., and new survivors K-Mart, Claire Redfield, and Nurse Betty must fight to survive extinction against hordes of zombies, killer crows and the most terrifying creatures created as a result of the deadly T-Virus that has killed millions.

Claire Redfield in the video games is in a never-ending search for her brother Chris. When the main plot of the film was planned, the original purpose of the trip to Alaska would be the reunion of Claire with her brother. The Chris Redfield subplot was scrapped and the voyage to Alaska was rescheduled as a simple quest for a safe haven. See more »
(at around 18 mins) When Alice comes across the empty gas station she aims her cross bow at the attendant zombie "Stevie" using a basic reflex sight on the bow, yet in the scene it shows that she has managed to magnify all the way up to his chest revealing his name. The sight used on the crossbow does not have anywhere near that amount of magnification. See more »

Of all movies made of video game franchises, Resident Evil is by it's own right a fairly entertaining series of films. The games have always been a standout amongst others, so why shouldn't the film adaptations.
Extinction is by far the best of the three. Mulcahy was the right choice of director for this one. His atmospheric eye and fearless sense of close-ups take you for a 1 1/2 hour ride (that doesn't feel like you wasted your 8 bucks).
The attention to detail and finally plot that that resolutes, not to mention the film's tight editing make this an entertaining ride.
You finally care about why this event has happened, and most importantly you have characters who seem to care as well.
Not a perfect film, but reasonably close. Will there be a fourth installment? I am pretty sure we all know the answer to that.
Who will take the responsibility from here? That we must wait to see...
