View Full Version : Resident Evil: Extinction

So, I just got back from watching it. It's a good movie and will be added to my movie collection in 4 months when it's on Blu-ray. :::Minor spoilers::: I'm not good with reviews so this is really all I have to say. Some parts towards the end reminded me of Metroid meets Matrix, the ending credits had a nice electronica/trance remake of Jefferson Airplane - "White Rabbit" and I believe we'll be seeing a part 4, although I was originally left to believe this was the last one. The movie will also leave you with those, "I wonder what will end up with those people?" and "Now that they're so close to a cure...?" questions. If you liked the first 2 movies then you may want to catch this one.

I saw the other 2 so I'll probably see this one too. May as well right? I'm not rushing to the theater or anything, but I'm not gonna turn my nose up to it. I liked the first a lot better than the second one, how do you think it fares compared to those two?

It's a good flick, just not as good as the first 2 in a lot of ways, but it does have it's charm. I only have one gripe that bugged the shit out of me through out the movie and that is they kept "air brushing" Mila/Alice. One moment she would look a little sweaty and dirty and the next she looks like a magazine ad air brush gone wrong.

Someone at TFW mentioned the air-brush look on her, so I guess it is pretty obvious. It may be a result of them just trying to get the whole movie to have a gloss to it or whatever, I notice lots and lots movies going the high contrast route and all that these days.

I saw it last week and I thought it was great.

Now granted I love almost every zombie movie existed (Naturally the B Movies are included... they're just so funny!) but even my friends who weren't really that into zombie movies thought it was pretty cool.

But yeah, it definitely sets up another sequel... So naturally humans survive the apocalypse and extinction... the only thing worse than those are oprah winfrey and rosey odonald, and i don't think we've reached the point in special effects to truly capture the horror that is rosey odonald and oprah winfrey.

I saw part one and two and I wasn't really impressed with either, despite really liking Mila. Then after seeing 28 Days Later, I just really wasn't into the whole Resident Evil thing anymore. 28 Days Later ruined Resident Evil for me because I find it (28 Days Later) superior in nearly everyway. Naturally, I will be waiting until it comes out on video. Now that I think about it, I never even finished watching Resident Evil 2 anyway. I found it boring. I might find this one to be better, but I doubt it. Decent games; not-so-good movies.
