Resident Evil: Extinction Reviews

October 12, 2007
Russell Mulcahy of Highlander fame ensures that production values are strong even if logic is weak and the script sounds like it was written on the back of an envelope.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.
September 24, 2007
The action is not so much bloody as bloody monotonous.
September 24, 2007
The story and characters are surprisingly engaging, with fight scenes and scares effectively placed between plot turns.
September 24, 2007
It's the first of the agonizing Resident Evil movies that could remotely be considered fun.
September 24, 2007
Fast-paced and filled with brisk action sequences, the film should reasonably satisfy the devotees.
September 24, 2007
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.
September 24, 2007
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.
September 24, 2007
The third installment in the video-game-derived series of films is not exactly dull but never interesting either.
September 22, 2007
Pic never really achieves maximum velocity as a full-throttle action-adventure opus, despite game efforts by returning star Milla Jovovich.
September 21, 2007
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.
