Resident Evil Extinction (2007) The Best?

I don’t know. Measuring the Resident Evil theatrical films on a really low scale, this could be considered the best. It’s not clear as to why they went this route and how lucky the survivors of the second movie have been to this point any way. Resident Evil has found a way to dispatch any survivors from the previous movie, in the following movie. This is no different. Did you like LJ or Carlos? Welp, say good bye because it is extinction time!

Synopsis:

Captured by the Umbrella Corp., Alice (Milla Jovovich) receives genetic alterations that leave her with superhuman abilities. Hiding out in the Nevada desert, she joins forces with former cohorts Carlos (Oded Fehr) and L.J. (Mike Epps) as well as new survivors Claire (Ali Larter), K-Mart (Spencer Locke) and Nurse Betty (Ashanti) to eradicate the virus that threatens to turn every human on Earth into a zombie.

I do like these movies, I promise. I have a soft spot and respect for the filmmakers for not following the games. That is something I did want, but I understand why it isn’t what we got.

In this one, Alice is on her own riding her motorcycle through a desert Wasteland looking for survivors. She looks really badass in this one and she is cooler than ever in my opion. Eventually she meets up with Claire Redfield and her misfits which happend to have Carlos Oliviera and LJ from the Apocalypse film. When Alice begins to show these, other worldly powers, it kind of paints a target on the group’s back. Really all they want is a cigarette, but they get what’s left of Umbrealla coming after them.

As with the other two movies, this one is ridiculous, but fun. I really enjoyed the multiple copies of Alice making their way through a “fun house” and once killed, being dumped in the desert. I will also mention, how convenient it is that everyone is in the desert, including Dr. Isaacs.

We get some great Zombie scenes in Extinction and an awesome fight with Alice and Dr. Isaacs, who becomes the Tyrant. That in itself is a high point. Overall, Extinction is fun and wild and yes, it does move the story forward and leaves us with a kind of cliffhanger for the next film.

Rotten Tomatoes has a rating of 24%.

I have a higher rating, go figure, 51%

I have been watching horror films since I was 6 years old. The story, one Saturday night, my mom and I were watching movies and she fell asleep on the couch. We had the channel set on HBO and the movie we were watching ended and the next one, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge. This was some time in 1986. I watched then entire film, I was sitting on the edge of my seat. When my mom woke, she asked me what just ended and I told her, “Freddy”. That was all I talked about for weeks and finally she broke down and rented more horror films for me. She rented, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre part 2, Re-Animator, Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives and Halloween II. I watched all and fell in love with horror films forever. 5 Horror Films to Watch Inferno (1980) A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) The Beyond (1981) Friday the 13th VI: Jason Lives (1986) Horror of Dracula (1958)
