RESIDENT EVIL: EXTINCTION
movie review by David Blackwell

95 minutes, rated R
Aspect Ratio: 2.35:1
STARRING Milla Jovovich (Alice), Oded Fehr (Carlos), Ali Larter (Claire), Iain Glen (Dr. Isaacs), Ashanti, Mike Epps (L.J.), Spencer Locke (K-Mart)
WRITTEN by Paul W.S. Anderson
DIRECTED by Russell Mulcahy

STUDIO: Screen Gem/ Davis Films/ Impact Pictures, Constantin Film
Theatrical RELEASE DATE: 9-21-2007

RESIDENT EVIL: EXTINCTION is perfect entry in the Resident Evil film series. They state this is the last one in a trilogy, but the ending leaves everything on a cliffhanger. Fantastic action sequences, pleny of Milla kicking zombie butt and killing them in many different ways, and a great score from Charlie Clouser. Shot in Mexico, RESIDENT EVIL: EXTINCTION takes the film up another notch in this Mad Max zombie movie. The survivors keep on the move as the T Virus has spread across the planet and the Earth is staarting to die. Alice (Milla Jovovich) is on her own until she hooks up with a convoy of survivors lead by Claire Redfield (Ali Larter). The convoy keeps on the move to keep the undead at bay. Alice is reunited with old comrades from RESIDENT EVIL: APOCALYPSE- Carlos (Oded Fehr) and L.J. (Mike Epps). Dr. Isaacs (Iain Glen) of the Umbrella Corporation wants to find Alice because her blood holds the key to destroying the T-Virus forever as he also goes about pointlessly trying to domesicate zombies. He is doing this project in addition to testing a variety of Alice clones who end up dead (big mistake for him as you will see).

Milla Jovovich owns the film while many other characters have little to do and not much development to them at all. I do want to see a fourth RESIDENT EVIL film due to the cliffhanger which promises lots of Milla for the next one if they ever make it. Undead ravens are an intresting addition to the mix of undead populating this film. I wonder if lots of material ended up on the cutting room floor like with RESIDENT EVIL: APOCALYPSE for a tight action pace. Excellent special effects and great settings make the film an intiguing film I wished they explored more instead of keeping propelled just by action and lots of Milla love. RESIDNET EVIL: EXTINCTION is an improvent over the second film, but I hope they could make another one as great as the first film instead of the series just being a vehicle for tons of Milla Jovovich love as she controls the screen at the expense of almost everything else.
