Did You Know?

Trivia

(at around 7 mins) Raccoon City is clearly Detroit, Michigan from the graphic about 6-7 minutes into the film. The Detroit river and Belle Isle are clearly discernible, as is the half moon shaped industrial park to the North (towards the left in the film). See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 26 mins) During the scene in which Tokyo appears, there are several Japanese signs that just have random Japanese ideograms completely irrelevant to what should be there. See more »

Dr. Isaacs: Take a sample of her blood, and then get rid of that.

Right director for this installment!
27 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

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...
