The scariest visage is that of Alice, whose flawless, airbrushed complexion is either a throwback to Mulcahy's New Romantic pop promos or something dictated by Jovovich's L'Oréal contract.

Resident Evil: Extinction plays like a flabby middle chapter, full of nerdy details but fraudulently short on the ruined Vegas-scape that ads have been promising.

If ever a movie was made for a quick in-and-out engagement at the multiplex, this is it.

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

The action is not so much bloody as bloody monotonous.

The story and characters are surprisingly engaging, with fight scenes and scares effectively placed between plot turns.

It's the first of the agonizing Resident Evil movies that could remotely be considered fun.

Fast-paced and filled with brisk action sequences, the film should reasonably satisfy the devotees.

The third in the modestly successful franchise spawned by the ultraviolent video-game, Resident Evil: Extinction provides little in the way of satisfying explanations or, for that matter, satisfying anything.

It's all so much more fun when you're the one with the controller, telling the heroes what to do: Watching this stuff unfold onscreen is like sitting by while someone plays your video games without you.

The third installment in the video-game-derived series of films is not exactly dull but never interesting either.

Pic never really achieves maximum velocity as a full-throttle action-adventure opus, despite game efforts by returning star Milla Jovovich.

More of the same game.

The palette is post-apocalyptic America, with generous squeezes of every cinematic pigment from The Omega Man to Mad Max to Night of the Living Dead. Really, the lack of flying saucers ultimately becomes quite amazing.
