Trivia

One of the few additions in the latest drafts of the script is the initial attack of the desert gang. Originally Alice would discover an abandoned TV station. She would watch old footage on the screens depicting the destruction of the world due to the global infection. Her narration would unfold at that point. When the script was rewritten this scene was dropped and it was substituted with the assault scene. The only remaining hint is the fact that Alice meets the deranged family in a decrepit TV station. Her narration was also rescheduled and it now appears after the title card. See more »

Goofs

During the scene where 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 »

Post-Apocalyptic fun
11 October 2007 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

One thing that's for sure is that the "evil" of the title is becoming less and less "residential." This time around the nasty T-virus has spread all over the whole world and humanity is in grave danger. I guess that's where the "extinction" part comes in.

Once again we find ourselves not too long after the previous film left off. Humanity is in shambles and "Extinction" plays itself like a post-apocalyptic thriller, no pun intended. Alice is evading the evil Umbrella Corporation who needs to conclude some experiments but they can only do it with her blood and clones don't work. While wandering the desert Alice finds out she has mental powers, meets a group of survivors, and happens to be tracked by Umbrella all within what must be one hour. I guess it's not her lucky day. The audience however, providing you're fans of stylized carnage, is in for a little treat. "Extinction" not only provides a more interesting plot than the previous film, it also provides much better action and special effects. These effects feature zombies (naturally) but also demonic crows and a nasty mutation at the end. The action scenes are nicely done with somewhat unpredictable approach to who gets munched and who doesn't so tension is there throughout.

There are also many absurdities, but they can only be expected in a film like this. For instance, the film is set in a desolate world with supposedly little supplies yet the women look like they put on make up every morning and regularly get a manicure. The GOOD women that is. Alice meets some BAD people in the beginning and these people somehow haven't picked up any of those bathroom supplies and make up kits that are laying around. Those bad people are another thing, they appear in an early scene that demonstrates that Alice can fight and kick ass... seeing that this is the third movie in the series do they really need to make this point again? If they avoided it, then the climatic fight might have been longer and a bit more, you know, climatic. But I guess that wasn't the point of that fight since right after it we are set up for Resident Evil 4.

"Extinction" is enjoyable for what it is, but that's it. --- 6/10

Rated R for violence/gore and horror. Ages 13+
