Extinction (2018)




Critic Consensus: Extinction has a few intriguing ideas, but they -- and some game performances from its talented stars -- are lost in the movie's muddled plot and frustrating pacing.

A B-movie with a blockbuster attitude, and not in a fun way.

July 27, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

It's entertaining enough, with larger than life set pieces, with dystopian vibes throughout.

November 5, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's probably for the best that this movie went to Netflix and not to the theaters. It lacked spark to fill a huge room.

Extinction is sure to thrill, shock, surprise and impress -- if you're a science-fiction fan.

August 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Strong acting, wonderful direction, and a mostly alluring script overcome a somewhat commonplace story with familiar themes.

August 24, 2018 | Full Review…

The big twist is a good one, there are some decent action sequences and Lizzy Caplan is always good to watch, but there isn't enough here to keep things from dragging.

Audience Reviews for Extinction

A maintenance man is haunted by dreams of an alien invasion - which nobody, especially his wife, believes. Boy, is there some agonizing reappraisal when ... guess what happens?! It's kind of fun, slow at the top, picking up steam as it goes. Summer movie.
