Overview

Director Russell Mulcahy takes over for the third chapter in the Resident Evil film franchise, which finds genetically altered Alice (Milla Jovovich) joining forces with Carlos (Oded Fehr) and L.J. (Mike Epps) to take down the Umbrella Corporation once and for all. Upon emerging from her hideout in the Nevada desert, Alice is quickly joined by old friends Carlos and L.J., as well as survivors Claire (Ali Larter), K-Mart (Spencer Locke), and Nurse Betty (Ashanti). Now instilled with super-human strength, senses, and dexterity as a result of the biogenetic experimentation conducted on her by the Umbrella Corporation, Alice and the rest of the survivors set out to eliminate a virus that threatens to turn every living human undead, and ensure that the mysterious organization pays the price for their horrific crimes against humanity.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
By the time film franchises make it to a third entry, it usually either marks the end of the franchise or a depressing grab at what made the original films so special in the first place -- and then there's Resident Evil: Extinction. Not only have the filmmakers turned the series' premise on its head with the post-apocalyptic setting, but they've gone out of their way to further complicate the story -- even so far as demanding a continuation at its head-scratching finale. All of this would make more sense if the quality of the films demanded it, but if anything, the series has lagged in quality rather than becoming more focused by learning what worked before. While not nearly as outrageous as the action overload of the second film, the third settles into somewhat of a serious tone, more like the original, except this time, it's all presented in a ho-hum fashion, thanks in part to Russell Mulcahy's glossy but largely geriatric direction. As to what his lensing is missing -- for one, the scares that are there just don't work, which would be okay if the action were amped up to realize the pic's full potential. While Extinction evokes a distinct Road Warrior feel, there's nary a time that it delivers on that level of excitement, despite its obvious throwback nature in terms of visuals and stunts. On the plus side, Milla Jovovich still delivers a tough-cookie performance and lives up to her action-starlet status, with her acrobatics being some of the most impressive feats of the film (though what's with the digital smoothing they obviously threw on her face in the close-ups?). Questionably aided dermatology aside, the flick gets points for expanding upon its own mythology while still throwing in a few nods to the gaming crowd -- it's just too bad that they couldn't have spiced up the recipe a bit more so that the onscreen action met the lofty ambitions of the script.

I am a big fan of the games, and yes it does not follow any of them. But if you do forget the games then this is the best of the trilogy. And from a stand alone point, its a pretty cool movie. Sadly its too short to really be worthy to buy, only be an hour and a half. But it is fun to watch. Out of all if you liked the first two then you will love this one. If you hated the first two, then you will hate this one.

I've never seen her look so good :)
Ok about the movie. I never saw the other parts I¿ve only seen this one and it was cool! I liked the video games and this movie was fun to watch especially Milla. Her facial expressions are awesome :)

Alice (Milla Jovovich) wanders the Nevada desert alone, flying under the radar of the Umbrella Corporation. It's been five years since the deadly T-virus outbreak. The world is all but in shambles. Alice believes that only Alaska is the last safe place on Earth. An old journal she found with a six-month-old radio transcription told her so. On her journey, Alice comes across a small caravan of survivors headed up by Claire (Ali Larter) that also happens to be carrying along some old friends: Slater (Matthew Marsden) and L.J. (Mike Epps). She convinces them to head north to Alaska, and so they embark, fighting off the dead at every turn, even undead crows that have been transformed from feasting on zombie flesh. Dr. Isaacs (Iain Glen) wants Alice back under his control as he focuses on perfecting her as a weapon against the undead. Except, once Alice catches on, she manages to disable their system of control over her and escapes with Claire and the others. All hope lost, and having been bitten by one of the dead himself, Dr. Isaacs uses the antivirus on himself . . . but in a different way, creating a result neither he nor Alice expected. It's ultra crazy good and suspenseful action horror in this third installment in the Resident Evil series. Wow. I mean, man oh man, I love this movie. So, so good. I'm a sucker for roadside horror and sleepy towns. This movie has both. The zombies? Pure gruesome since most of them have been rotting for five years as they wander around devouring the rest of the living. The zombie crows were a nice touch. So, so many of them. Swarms. That's the thing I always tell people about zombies. One zombie's not so bad. Get a whole mess of them together and they're scary as all get out. Same for zombie crows. There was enough here to turn the sky black. Freaky. The development of Alice's powers was cool and though her telekinesis might seem kind of outlandish to some, it's portrayed well here and done with the utmost serious and not used as a cop-out to get her out of a jam. I felt bad for her as well when she saw all those clones of herself rotting out in the desert sun. That'd be heartbreaking, upsetting and angering for anyone. I'm glad she gave Dr. Isaacs his due. The ending raises a ton of questions for the forthcoming Resident Evil: Afterlife. I'm eager to see how they deal with that army of Alices without it coming off goofy or repetitive. This movie's score was also spectacular, the hard beat of the drums and dark, raunchy guitar giving it a very awesome grittiness that adds to the whole post-apocalyptic feel. Check this flick out. It's hardcore, loaded with gore and just down right fantastic. Recommended. A.P. Fuchs Canister X
