It's high time for "Resident Evil: Enough is Enough".
October 12, 2007
Those zombies are back on the march in the third instalment of the horror-action series that plays like a rip-off of George A Romero's Day Of The Dead, only with a much lower IQ.
October 12, 2007
While it doesn't present anything that is in any way original, it's fast and fun enough not to outstay its welcome.
October 12, 2007
Milla Jovovich reprises her tough-girl-in-sexy-thigh-boots role, and the survivors travel in Mad Max conveys up and down desert highways in search of fuel.
October 11, 2007
Resident Evil: Extinction does exactly what you'd expect from a threequel - it's not especially scary or witty but if you want hot chicks kicking zombie arse then it delivers enough action to keep the Friday night crowd happy.
October 10, 2007
Scaling dizzy heights of sheer averageness, the third in writer/ producer Paul WS Anderson's stillborn zombie saga is the best - or least worst - yet.
October 10, 2007
Better than the silly second instalment and boasting an effectively creepy empty world setting, it's nevertheless scuppered by a lack of coherence.
October 10, 2007
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.
October 9, 2007
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.
October 9, 2007
Director Russell Mulcahy, a veteran of sci-fi tat, knows well enough to keep his camera firmly focussed on the exploding heads, and of course, there's the semi-naked Milla. One for Saturday night DVD rental, really.

[It] will please series aficionados but leave newcomers mostly fidgety and baffled.
October 6, 2007
Almost all of it has to do with watching the occasionally nude Jovovich look absolutely smashing in duster and sidearms, but sometimes, let's face it, that's not enough.
October 6, 2007
There are some cheap thrills to be had, but nothing spectacular or even truly memorable happens.
October 6, 2007
Aussie filmmaker Russell Mulcahy piles on the atmosphere to make up for lack of originality in the script or production design. He also knows which bones to throw zombie movie fans, who relish the methodology of destroying the slow moving freaks
October 5, 2007
Having no beginning or middle, the story also has no end, just a set-up for Part Four.
October 4, 2007
If you are willing to leave your brains and good taste at the door, you may well find Resident Evil: Extinction to be a guilty pleasure of the purest genetic strain.
September 28, 2007
It is neither as clamorous nor as trashy as the first two films.
September 28, 2007
On its own action/horror terms, this is the most successful 'threequel' of the year, if only because it actually improves on its silly predecessors.
September 28, 2007
The final chapter in the videogame franchise deviates too far from its roots to be saved.
September 28, 2007
No better or worse than its video game-derived predecessors, hack-for-hire Russell Mulcahy's tired schlockfest blatantly rips off other, infinitely better sci-fi chillers.
