Resident Evil: Extinction (2007)
The third and final installment of the $100 million RESIDENT EVIL hits,
RESIDENT EVIL: EXTINCTION is again 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…and to seek justice. 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.
Once again based on the popular video game franchise, Milla Jovovich is back as Alice, this time in a world that’s progressed from city with a serious zombie problem to continent gone post-apocalyptic wasteland. I was disappointed in the second Resident Evil movie, Resident Evil: Apocalypse, but the first one is still the best video game to movie translation to date. Of course that’s kind of like saying you prefer Stalin to Hitler, but there it is.
