        Resident Evil Extinction manages to dumb down the plot, action, and characters since the last film, which is an impressive "accomplishment". As hard as I try to get invested in this post-apocalyptic series, the series just keeps getting dumber. 'Extinction' picks up a few years after the end of 'Apocalypse' as Alice left her group in hopes of keeping them safe from the remnants of Umbrella Corp, who are tracking Alice in order to produce more of the anti-virus. Meanwhile, Alice's life of solitude has apparently given her telekinetic abilities. Yes, it's just that ridiculous. But even with another new setting in the desert (ala Mad Max), the plot never takes any exciting twists and turns. In fact, I'm not entirely sure what any of the characters were ultimately trying to accomplish. Characters that I thought were supposed to be important are either non-existent or given anti-climatic deaths. Plus, the zombies (or whatever they are calling the undead creatures) are now able to run around and climb on top of cars and buildings? I don't know about that. Do I enjoy seeing Milla Jovovich in this role? Of course. She's been a constant bright spot through each of the first three films, but I find it hard to believe that it's enough to give a film like this a positive review. Iain Glenn is fittingly over-the-top, but why in the world does he turn into a prototypical monster in the end? At that point, the film is expectedly off the rails. Well, that's enough ranting about a film I could care less about. +Milla always impresses -What is the arc for the movie? Or any character at all? -Nothing unique 4.6/10

        It's always on the verge of becoming really entertaining (nearly turning into a post-apocalyptic Vegas heist movie at one point) before falling back on standard genre cliches.

        The zombie apocalypse goes global in Resident Evil: Extinction. The story picks up a few years after the T-Virus was unleashed, and finds Alice and a ragtag group of survivors navigating a post-apocalyptic wasteland ruled by the undead. Milla Jovovich, Oded Fehr, and Ali Larter form a strong cast that's able to carry the material fairly well. Additionally, the film has a good pace that keeps the action exciting and intense. However, the plot becomes a little unhinged at the end and takes the series in a strange direction. Resident Evil: Extinction is another solid entry into the series, but it's beginning to get a bit too convoluted.

        The first time I watched this was in the theater, and I fell asleep. I found it to be boring, pretentious, and just overall not a very good movie. Now revisiting the movie, I find this to actually be a much better experience, and along with the second movie the best of the series. I really liked the way the movie looks when it's in the desert(the only thing I like when I saw it the first time), and it really pops off of Blu-Ray. Here, Alice(who has superpowers) is looking for fellow survivors, as the world has basically been overrun by the t virus. She meets up with a group in the Nevada desert, some of whom she had teamed with in the second movie. But the umbrella corporation find them, and they have to make it out alive. When this is a straight up zombie movie, it's awesome. Two words: Crow Zombies. But towards the end when again it's like guys with tentacles coming out of their face, or Alice being super powered, it's dumb and the effects are bad. Is it a great movie? No, but I don't think it's a bad movie either. It has enough good qualities to make it watchable. Some movies get better with age, and surprisingly this is one of them.
