Resident Evil: Extinction (2007)

<strong class="MovieTitle">Resident Evil: Extinction</strong> (2007)

(In theaters, September 2007) At least this this entry is better than the previous one. That’s not saying much, but Extinction takes a few chances by moving the action after the zombie apocalypse and killing a recurring character. As B-grade action/SF films are concerned, it even manages a few good scenes: I liked the bird attack, the “Alice dumping trench” and the tanker explosion, not to mention another hit in the series’ habit of excellent prologues/epilogues. On the other hand, well, the writing is lazy and the direction isn’t much better: Ashanti gets killed far too quickly, most of the action scenes are dull, the ending is strictly routine and there’s a limit to the number of mutants zombies you can stuff in a truck container. I’m not exactly thirsting for a fourth instalment: This lemon’s been squeezed dry.
