), Claire Redfield (Larter), and Nurse Betty (Ashanti) must fight to survive extinction against hordes of zombies, killer crows and the most terrifying creatures created as a result of the deadly T-Virus that has killed millions. Written by Akoksum2003
“Resident Evil: Extinction” was interesting in its own right but it wasn’t what I expected. It played more like the interlude between films. I think this film set the events of a much better film. At the conclusion it set up the film that I expected to see.
Even with the under whelmed expectation it was a par science fiction action film. It was less about the horror and more about the action. The plot was explain and there wasn’t anymore explanation of it. Characters from previous film are absent without any explanation and maybe they are being saved for future films.
For future films decide what the film is going to be. If the film is going to cater to the horror fans then make it about the horror as they did in the first. If you’re going to cater to the action then define the action. But the most important part is to always keep in mind the development of the characters. The film didn’t know what it wanted to be and that hurt the film for most people
The theatre that I saw this “Resident Evil: Extinction” only showed trailers for “Saw IV” and “30 Days of Night”. The DVD has an audio commentary with writer/producer Paul W.S. Anderson, Producer Jeremy Bolt, and director Russell Mulcahy. The deleted scenes and several featurettes on the making of Resident Evil: Extinctions. It has a preview for a CGI movie “Resident Evil: Degeneration”. There are more movie previews for “Vantage Point”, “Dragon Wars”, “Untraceable”, “Zombie Strippers”, “Southland Tales”, “Superbad”, “Brother’s Soloman”, “Boogeyman 2”, “Gabriel”, “The Nines”, “Jackie Chan’s The Myth”, “Resident Evil & Apocalypse: The Resurrection Edition”, “Feardot.com”, “Resident Evil: Umbrella Video Game” and “Devil May Cry 4 Video Game”.
I give 3/5 Gs.
