This is far from the trilogy-topping finale it was meant to be, but at least there's some good to be made of this experience: it's the last Resident Evil film we'll ever have to sit through again.

What plot there is in Resident Evil: Extinction -- the denouement of which is disappointingly incomplete -- serves solely to set up the gunslinging action, given a Wild West flair by its setting in Las Vegas and the surrounding desert.

True to its video game origins, the movie is basically one set-piece after another, all going something like this. Alice (sometimes another character) enters a new environment. It is quiet. Too quiet. Then something scary and gross happens.

There are some cheap thrills to be had, but nothing spectacular or even truly memorable happens.

The latest installment in writer/producer Paul W.S. Anderson's Resident Evil series may have opened atop the box office, but hardcore gamers know where the real action is.

Not nearly as dumb as the previous movie, but still fairly dull despite a few impressive action sequences.

A Western-tinged adventure whose innovations are so scant that the only things keeping the enterprise afloat are clumsy references to its predecessors.

Are there any video games where the whole point is to sit around doing nothing for 95 minutes?

Milla Jovovich does a female chauvinist dressed-to-kill biker babe, while dodging cannibalistic crows. Rarely has mass murder been so dull. Pass the smelling salts.

Having no beginning or middle, the story also has no end, just a set-up for Part Four.

It is neither as clamorous nor as trashy as the first two films.

Resident Evil: Extinction is no more interesting than watching someone else play with his Xbox.

Zombie sequel is just as grisly as the first two.

It's a movie only 'roided zombie fans, optimistic executives and mothers can love.

Extinction is basically a robotic and wretched screen-sized visual video game that never challenges or stimulates the audience's rush for genuine outrageous freakiness.

Rips from as many movies as possible, and fails to even do that right.

Even those of you who enjoyed the first two films as much as I did are likely to walk away from this one feeling disappointed and ripped off.

While it doesn't present anything that is in any way original, it's fast and fun enough not to outstay its welcome.

There isn't much to it beyond the usual gamer-friendly plotting, grisly fight scenes and highly advanced Halloween makeup.
