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. Since being captured by the Umbrella Corporation, Alice has been subjected to biogenic experimentation and becomes genetically altered, with super-human strengths, senses and dexterity. These skills, and more, will be needed if anyone is to remain alive...

Not extinct yet
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 14/05/2012 01:24:57
The third Resident Evil movie is probably the most enjoyable with its Mad Max vibe as stray bands of survivors club together to protect themselves from the zombie apocalypse. Milla Jovovich is back on board as Alice who has now evolved some superpowers which make her even more kick-ass. The subversive corporation subplot is a little tiresome now and rather bizarrely the face of our lead actress is frequently given some CGI airbrushing. But it is good and bloody, plenty of action and features a zombie crow setpiece that is genuinely impressive.

Here it is in a nutshell: Better than the second movie, not as good as the first.
'Resident Evil: Extinction' picks up a few years after the end of the last franchise entry, 'Resident Evil: Apocalypse'. The picture begins with a strange replay of the first movie that eventually culminates in a clever twist. Soon after, we learn that the T-Virus infection has spread rapidly around the planet in the elapsed time, essentially wiping out most of mankind and leaving the world a barren desert wasteland overrun by zombies. In 'Mad Max' fashion, a band of survivors including returning characters Carlos Olivera (Oded Fehr) and L.J. (Mike Epps) cruise the highways in a convoy of modified and armoured vehicles. Our girl Alice (Milla Jovovich) is still about as well, mostly keeping to herself as she learns to develop the superhuman telekinetic powers caused by genetic experimentation performed on her by the evil Umbrella Corporation. Naturally, she will soon cross paths with her old friends to face off against the remnants of Umbrella, hiding in a new Hive fortress beneath the Nevada sands.
For their part, the baddies haven't abandoned their nefarious plans and are still up to no good. This time around, they've been testing a biological serum that will domesticate and control a new breed of super zombies for use as weapons. Smarter and faster than the usual lumbering brain-eaters, these new monsters pose a greater-than-usual threat to our heroes, but the formula hasn't quite been perfected yet, and for that Umbrella wants Alice back. Needless to say, she isn't particularly interested in helping the cause. All of this leads to a confrontation in Las Vegas, the city long since abandoned and swallowed by the desert.
'Extinction' is once again written by series mastermind Paul W.S. Anderson, but directed this time out by Russell Mulcahy of 'Highlander' fame. To say that this is one of Mulcahy's least idiotic movies may be damning it with faint praise. Nonetheless, what he's put together here is an efficient, professional sequel with decent action, gore, and production values. It's a nice change to see this horror movie set mostly outdoors and during the daytime. The zombie dogs are back, and those are always fun. An attack by zombie crows in the middle of the movie of course steals heavily from 'The Birds', but is pretty cool anyway (Hitchcock never thought to set his birds on fire, now did he?). The movie also makes a token nod to the video game series by introducing the character of Claire Redfield, played here by Ali Larter of 'Heroes'.
The third movie thankfully pares back most of the blatant stupidity that plagued 'Apocalypse'. This isn't a smart movie by any means, but there are no annoying comic relief characters and the plot doesn't violate the established rules of the series. Unfortunately, that isn't to say that there aren't some serious lapses in basic logic. One character bitten in an attack tries to pretend there's nothing wrong with him for an awfully long time, during which no one else seems to notice him slowly but obviously zombifying right in front of them. After Alice smashes through a fence to get to a fortified Umbrella compound, for some reason the hordes of zombies milling around outside dont bother to follow her in. The film also ends with yet another cheesy monster, and has an excessive amount of obnoxious Sony product placement.
The transfer though, is fantastic. Colours shine, faces sparkle, attention to detail is king. This is one of the finest transfers i've seen yet.
Film: 3 stars
Picture: 5 stars
Sound: 4 stars
Extras: 2 stars

good set of zombie films
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 09/08/2008 18:50:07
This is was the first blue ray film i brought and i was impressed by the quality of the film.Even though this is the 3rd film in the set it still has me waiting for them to release the 4th one. A must if you like zombie films. The only crisitism is that there isnt enough zombie action.

Extinction is the best of the 3 Resident Evil films just!
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 02/07/2008 19:28:06
Resident Evil: Extinction is an big improvement on the 2nd film and on par with the 1st one or maybe just a little bit better, which I am pleased to say as I am a massive fan of the games. Milla Jovovich is fantastic at action films and proved this in the most excellent si-fi film called Fifth Element which must have got her the role for the Resident Evil films. The World has become a vast desert because of the T- Virus which gives the film a Mad Max feel. At one point in this zombie road trip film are heros get attacked by crows which is a nice little nod to an old classic called The Birds. Milla Jovovich has developed Jedi type powers and looks dead sexy when she kicks butt. All in all if you like action horror with a bit si-fi thrown in then you will enjoy this film its good fun but not great. The Blu-Ray transfar overall is good but not the best I have seen and, Resident Evil 4 the game is a PS2 classic the films can't touch that game in terms of quality.

A rehash of other people's ideas
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 05/05/2008 07:39:42
For those of you who have seen the original Day of the Dead, this film is going to seem very familiar to you, and probably strike you as a rip off in many ways. There is a bit of Mad Max thrown in, the cloning element is back, and so are the zombies, or Paul WS Anderson's idea of them anyway...
Anderson claims he wanted to keep things fresh and original, nothing of that here, except the picture in picture commentary, which is not bad. All in all, buy second hand if you want to test your player to see if it can do Profile 1.1, and then get rid of it. As for Paul WS Anderson, he should take up writing classes.

The first Blu-ray Movie 2 offer Picture in Picture Commentry
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 24/04/2008 00:28:34
Love it or hate it, just don't ask to many questions and leave your Brain behind for a Sci-Fi post apocalyptic zombie horror meets Mad Max, super computers, genetic cloning, Alfred Hitchcocks, 'The Birds', Telekinses and global warming enviromental disaster movie triggered by a man-made super-virus!
Yep its a sequel Jim but not as we know it! With Zombies that can outrun a Olymipic sprinter and mad scientist training the undead to use a digital camera with deadly results. Mad Max II being reprised with the mesh armoured yellow bus and barbed oil tanker with flame thrower even makes a short appearance!
'Mila' is turning into the undisputed Sci-fi super-vixen, The only disappointments is not knowing what happens to the T-Virus creators heavily infected daughter 'Angela' (Sophie Vavasseur) with 'Sienna Guillory' who had planned to reprise her role as 'Jill Valentine' however passed on the role due to commitments to 'Eragon'!
Just wish I didn't watch a lot of Natural History Documentries, first big question which nagged me thoughout the move, where did all the water go? Earth's surface is 3/4's water, it can not evaporate or go through the planets atmosphere along with air and can't seep into the core as it would evaporate due to the hot magma/mantal etc and come back down as rain!
With this desert Earth created in six months from the T-Virus, how come the Zombies don't dry up quickly and stay so juicy? Probably using Oil of Ulay, sunscreen and drinking plenty of liquid from somewhere!
With a $45 million budget, this movie has generated about $127 million in profit worldwide excluding DVD/Blu-ray sales, a fourth sequel is planned !!

A BIG LET DOWN
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 01/04/2008 04:24:05
I've got to say this film is brilliant, but the difference from Blu-Ray to a normal DVD is a complete let down. I thought the Blu-Ray would of come out two times better, but it turns out, i was miss taken. I own the normal DVD version as well as the Blu-Ray and I've seen little difference between them both. Everything is the complete same with just a tiny quality check over. After noticing I was gutted, what is with making a newer version on Blu-Ray if there isn't much of a difference. The film itself is excellent with a brilliant overall story line, you really get to understand more in this new Resident Evil: extinction from the others. Its a really fun enjoyable zombie film to watch, having said the little difference i give this a 3 stair.
