Product Overview

Milla Jovovich is back in the third chapter of the hugely successful Resident Evil franchise! This action-packed horror film is set in the Nevada desert and filled with intense special effects and more zombie terror! Resident Evil: Extinction is based on the wildly popular video game series and picks up where the last film left off. Alice (Milla Jovovich), now in hiding in the Nevada desert, once again joins forces with Carlos Olivera (Oded Fehr) and L.J. (Mike Epps), along with new survivors Claire (Ali Larter), K-Mart (Spencer Locke), and Nurse Betty (Ashanti) to try to eliminate the deadly virus that threatens to make every human being undead.

Editors Note
Note It's three years after the action of RESIDENT EVIL: APOCALYPSE, and the world has turned to desert in this third film based on the now-classic video game RESIDENT EVIL. Survivors of the zombie-making T-virus are few and far between, but Alice (Milla Jovovich) treks her way across the desolate landscape, fending off zombies and fighting the Umbrella Corporation. Not only is the company responsible for the virus and the state of the world, but their experiments also turned Alice into a super-human fighting machine. She reunites with Carlos (Oded Fehr) and L.J. (Mike Epps) when she joins with a caravan of people led by Claire Redfield (Ali Larter, HEROES). Together, the band battles the undead as they make their way to the promised safety of Alaska.^The zombies of RESIDENT EVIL: EXTINCTION have more in common with the fast-moving fiends of 28 DAYS LATER than with the lumbering creatures of George Romero's classic NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. However, this film doesn't limit itself to human zombies; instead, there's horror to be found in undead dogs and crows. But none of these are any match for Jovovich's Alice. Whether clad in chaps and short shorts or a slinky red dress and boots, Jovovich is dressed to kill as she takes down the zombie hordes with a lethal combination of guns, knives, and a powerful pair of legs. Just as in ULTRAVIOLET and THE FIFTH ELEMENT, the actress has perfected the role of the dangerous beauty, and this film's blend of butt-kicking action and horror-movie scares provides the perfect opportunity for her to shine.

Review The third film of this franchise, "Extinction," recalls the unsophisticated joys of the original, while managing to find a breezy junk food tone of its own..."Extinction" obviously digests more easily as a visual exercise than a robust selection of dramatic filmmaking. Stealing bits from "Mad Max," "Alien: Resurrection," "Day of the Dead" (with the birth of intelligent zombies), and, if you can believe it, Hitchcock's "The Birds" (while we see the return of the zombie dogs, look out for a zombie crow attack), Mulcahy and screenwriter Paul W.S. Anderson (the director of the first installment) are desperate to forge something of an identity for the picture, but it's thin stuff, which is useful at times, but not when trying to find a payoff for the film...Mimicking the "boss fight" climax of "Apocalypse," "Extinction" offers another go-around with a monster, only with less effort in the crucial escalation department. The slimy bad guy is just kinda there, without much introduction and even less of a farewell. The sunny side of the street here is the killer set-up for a fourth installment, hinting at the sort of gleeful mayhem Anderson is probably incapable of exploring to satisfying ends. However, it's an imaginative climax to an agreeable horror/action film; one that holds together nicely as long as the viewer doesn't dig too deeply for quality.

Review Those pesky flesh-eating zombies just keep coming back for more and more in Resident Evil: Extinction, the third and mercifully last film in the Resident Evil franchise. 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 as Milla Jovovich slices and dices her way through an army of zombies to shut down the nefarious Umbrella Corporation for good. Watching Jovovich and her action babe sidekick Ali Larter (Heroes) blast zombies to a bloody pulp is akin to seeing a gore-splattered Maxim layout, erroneously turned into a feature film...Directed by Mulcahy (Highlander) with all the enthusiasm of a convicted felon reporting for court-ordered community service, Resident Evil: Extinction offers up more of the same, i.e., scantily clad babes kicking zombie butt, in a ho-hum film that can't even muster up a decent cheap thrill or two. Mulcahy and producer/screenwriter Paul Anderson crib shamelessly and ineptly from such films as The Road Warrior (1982), 28 Days Later (2003), Pitch Black (2000) and George Romero's Day of the Dead (1985), among others, in this vehicle for Jovovich, the reigning queen of the B's--as in bores.
