The third installment in the massively popular film series based on Capcom's zombie horror/science fiction games, Resident Evil: Extinction brings the world to an end, not with a whimper but a bang, as Milla Jovovich's Alice pits her bio-organic superskills against armies of the undead in a post-apocalyptic Las Vegas. Also on hand is a more grown-up version of the games' Claire Redfield (played by Heroes' Ali Larter), who leads a convoy of humans (among them Resident Evil vets Oded Fehr and Mike Epps, who reprise their roles as Carlos and LJ, as well as newcomers Ashanti and Spencer Locke) in search of sanctuary; meanwhile, sinister Umbrella Corporation scientist Dr. Sam Isaacs (Iain Glen) seeks a cure for the zombie virus outbreak via Alice's blood, which he taps via a lab full of clones. Subtlety has never been the Resident Evil series' strong suit, but it's hard to argue against Extinction's breakneck pace and impressive CG special effects; director Russell Mulcahy (the Highlander series) lends a lot of verve to the proceedings, and the script by producer Paul W.S. Anderson pulls in agreeable touches from The Road Warrior and Day of the Dead. A hit during the summer of 2007, Extinction should please series devotees and action-horror fans alike; the DVD includes commentary by Mulcahy, Anderson, and co-producer Jeremy Bolt, as well as several making-of featurettes, and a glimpse at the next entry in the Resident Evil franchise, the CG-only Degeneration. -- Paul Gaita

- From J. Kaye's Book Blog
I walked away pleased with this latest installment. Compare with the others before, this one isn't as good. Even so, I loved it. In this sequel, Alice has been hiding in the Nevada desert, staying one step ahead of the zombies that have basically taken over the world. She once again joins forces with friends of the past in order to find a safe haven. Her enemy isn't just the undead, but the Umbrella Corporation as well. The action in this move was so good, it left me with goose bumps. Also, the ending leaves plenty of room for the fourth in this series. I don't think Resident Evil fans will be disappointed. I wasn't....more info

- Great Addition to the Resident Evil Franchise
This movie is beutifully shot, there are several screens in this movie that would make great still photographs. The sound, and music score is great, the pacing is great, the characters are great. The zombie effects are the best of all 3 of the movies. This movie has a The Hill have eyes, Mad Max Feel to it, there is even an aweseome sequence where they pay homage the Alfred Hitchcocks "The Birds" with zombie Crows/Ravens, and its done dam good.
As usual Mila Jovavich's acting is perfect for the role, and she does her own fight scenes, and stunts, how many ex super models can do this? Its a rare treat indeed.
Great Job guys, I keep going back and watching this one over and over. Fans of this Genre of Movies will love this one....more info
- Death, Destruction, Despair, and other Holiday Tidings
The deadly T-virus has now escaped the Umbrella Corporation's rigorously controlled environment and infected the world. There are few who can remain alive in such a hostile atmosphere where nature has reclaimed her own and flesh hungry zombies seek the warm life blood of the living. Earth is desolate. The entire planet shown from afar is now visible as a barren Necropolis of broken dreams, empty lives, and the fruitless pursuit of existence. It's over. . . or is it? Operation Alice is back, bigger and better than before. The fight for earth has begun . . .
Continuing the ever growing Resident Evil franchise, the latest installment in this seemingly endless movie series has actually managed to redeem much of the harm done in prior movies. While this is still not a "thinking man's" film by any means, the numerous action sequences, interesting special effects, and superior scenes of zombie carnage combined to produce an entertaining and enjoyable film. Perhaps there is hope for the Resident Evil venture after all.
The story continues the very lose plot line established in earlier movies, that is, Alice runs around in skimpy clothes, as before, and engages in random acts of violence while taking herself very seriously. Meanwhile, the ever devious yet massively inefficient Umbrella Corporation tracks her, thinking to take on a monster that they have created, yet have proved time and again that they cannot control. So much for the whole notion of hindsight. But, if you have already seen the first two Resident Evil movies and are still coming back, then you already know all this. Let's face it, the movies are just dumb, but they are fun if you can put aside your thinking cap and indulge in a Friday night flick with friends. And besides, there is one new theme that has emerged in Resident Evil: Extinction that is actually quite appealing in a macabre sort of way, the entire destruction of the world. While Resident Evil has never minded killing off large populations for the pleasure of a disturbingly blood thirsty public, no one ever quite anticipated that they were ready to eradicate the world. Yes, it's been done before, but for some strange reason, this same old concept has a uniquely revolting attraction. The new theme works. Freud might have some interesting theories as to why, but let's face it - - - no one really cares, we just want to be entertained.
Now, what about the characters? I, for a lack of anything better to do (thus are the trials of being nineteen) have unfortunately watched both of the original Resident Evil movies more than once and, despite this, still haven't a clue as to what the character's personality's are really like. Apparently, Resident Evil: Extinction decided not to remedy this problem. We still don't care about these people. As far as we are concerned, they are just future zombie bait or, as I prefer to say, zombie chow on parade. But wait! What about the elusive Alice? Yes, she is still "cool" with her no nonsense mannerisms, incredible and totally unrealistic fighting maneuvers, and her ultra sexy clothes but let's face it, she's just not a talker. Does anyone remember her ever saying more than three words? I rest my case. Resident Evil and characterization are not synonymous and they probably never will be. As I said, this is not a thinking man's movie.
So, now that my poison pen is warmed up, I sadly must switch gears and move onwards, leaving my delightful cynicism behind and explaining the good qualities of this movie to any of you out there who were unfortunate enough to land on my review (laughs maniacally.) Resident Evil is mainly known for its concentration of high drama, edge of the seat tension, unpredictability, and special effects and in all these areas it delivers marvelously. The action presented in this movie far surpasses the first two films keeping the viewer hooked to the screen and diverting their attention from the actual lack of a deep plot. The action is non-stop and for the most part realistically depicted. The special effects have improved over the years and the directors were not afraid to capitalize on this especially since if all these scenes of carnage and mayhem were removed the movie could be recapped in less than three sentences. The combination of horror and action that is unique to the video game to movies franchise that is booming of late is presented most effectively in this film creating a very tense atmosphere and resulting in many unexpected deaths, mutilations, and zombiefications.
The conclusion was both oddly disappointing and strangely satisfying at the same time although it was obviously the prelude to yet another sequel (what ever happened to succinctness?) While Alice's final battle with an unnamed but many clawed creature was abrupt and vastly disappointing especially considering that half the movie had been building up to this grand battle, the "surprise conclusion" that was presented afterwards was most unique and quite interesting thus redeeming the entire conclusion.
Ending Thoughts: The expert manipulation of effects and the inclusion of hordes of flesh hungry zombies and heart stopping action packed scenes will of course appeal to any cynical teenage audience; however, an older crowed will probably find it most banal. If you are more into the thinking man's type of film, then this is not for you. If you are looking for a meaningless yet fun film, then Resident Evil: Extinction is definitely worth seeing.

- Great Blu-Ray picture. Good movies.
As far as the movies go I really liked the first one and thought the other two were alright. I won't go into any further detail because whether you like a movie or not is subjective. I'm sure you know what type of movies these are if you are considering purchasing them, and I would recommend them if you like horror/sci-fi/action adventure films. I think the most important thing I could share with you is the picture quality of these blu-ray discs which is fantastic. They look great on a big screen hi-def tv and I would highly recommend them if that is what is most important to you. ...more info
- at least better than the second installment
The movie starts and I'm immediately thinking: Did I put the wrong disc in the player? Isn't this the first installment? OK, it isn't. But soon another d¨¦j¨¤ vu - the dogs. Yeah, they were amazing in the first film. Then we saw them again in the second one and now they have their cameo in the third one - yawn. Well, the ravens are new and great. And all the dead Alices ... spine-tingling. What else? Ah, not that much. The graphics of the underground facility, the computer image/voice of a little girl - been there, done that ... in the first installment. I guess I could go on and on. Are there no fresh ideas out there? Nothing against coherence, but "Resident Evil: Extinction" is the most obvious rip-off of its own franchise. It even ends like it began - by reusing an impressive means from the first movie to get rid of the villain in this one. Only it's not so impressive any more.
By now I'm rather disappointed.
Still, I have to admit that "Extinction" is more entertaining than previous "Apocalypse". So, if you're not already deterred by my comments, you might as well check it out....more info

- LIke the first two in the series, fairly good without being great
If you want to get at the heart of what keeps all three films in the RESIDENT EVIL series from being very good it is this: the assumption that surface is everything. The mark of good movies is the number of subtexts that they generate, but with the RESIDENT EVIL franchise, there is a powerful resistance to subtext. For instance, even if you want to do an analysis of the tropes that attach to the main character of Alice, you will find resistance at every point. Why? Because the film itself has lingered in every frame on surface alone, completely resisting imbuing the film with more than just a succession of glittering images. There are entire visual sequences that have no function whatsoever but to merely paint a pretty picture. As a result, human elements are left entirely aside.
This obsession with surface and spectacle is unfortunate because Alice is potentially a fascinating character. Very occasionally the films in the series almost begin to toy with character development, but always pull back immediately after toying with it for a brief second. At the hand of more gifted filmmakers, Alice could have had the potential to become a poor man or woman's Ripley or Buffy or Max Guevera. At the hands of only moderately gifted filmmakers, we get little or no sense of her character, no real idea of what makes her tick, utterly no hint of what she wants, and very, very little about how she feels about things. Milla Jovovich is so gorgeous that she manages to make us forget how poorly drawn her character is. But the weak writing and poor direction never allows the films to ascend above slick spectacle.
These first two movies tell the first two parts of Alice's descent into her own nightmare land. The Alice in Wonderland imagery is reinforced at several points, not least in the original by naming the Hive's computer The Red Queen. And in the third movie in the sequence, EXTINCTION, a version of "White Rabbit" by Collide plays over the closing credits. During these films Alice, who initially suffers from amnesia, first learns from physical memory that she is a surreally gifted martial artist and weapons user, then recalls that she was head of security at the Hive, and later learns that her blood bonds to the virus that is killing everyone else, enhancing her strength, reflexes, and senses to absurd levels. What keeps the series from being very good is that the films continually focus on what these powers mean for what she can do to the bad guys, never on how it is affecting her. Contrast this to the way that this would have been done by any of a number of men (and why is it always men -- why haven't women helmed movies or TV shows with female heroes?) like James Cameron, Joss Whedon, Luc Besson, Ridley Scott, or Ron Moore. Under any of these there would have been as much or more about what all of this was doing to Alice. But then, all of these writers/directors/producers are more (or at least as much) concerned with the inner as the outer.
In short, these are extraordinarily superficial films. All surface, no depth, no interesting characters (mainly because of no character development). Having said that, the film does present superior surface. Once you accept that the films have nothing to offer but sheer surface, you can moderate your expectations and just go with that. Once I realized that these films would not/could not be more than a succession of spectacles, I surrendered and moderately enjoyed them. Was I ever truly entertained? Of course not. Was I bored? Not really.
This third film in the series is a genuine change of pace from the first two. The first was restricted to the somewhat claustrophobic locale of the Hive. The second moved out of the Hive into Raccoon City. The third moves into the deserts of Utah and Nevada. Much of the action takes place in a Las Vegas that has been reclaimed by the desert. I haven't played any of the games so I can't comment on how closely they adhere to game play, but the real influence on this third film is the second MAD MAX film, better known in the U.S. as THE ROAD WARRIOR. Though Alice isn't as cynical and certainly isn't amoral like Mel Gibson's Max was, like Max she is an unredeemable loner who can only enable others reach the Promised Land, without going there herself. Unlike Max, there is clearly something that she has to do, namely deal with the hierarchy of the Umbrella Corporation, as well as distribute a cure for the virus that has rendered most of the world's populace zombies. And if the ending of the film is accurate, she'll be engaging an army of her clones to achieve her goal.
There is also one of the best raven attacks since Hitchcock, as a huge flock of ravens, turned flying zombies by eating off infected flesh, attack the convoy of humans led by HEROES's Ali Larter. This and other scenes set in the ruins of Vegas give this film a visual energy somewhat lacking in the first two. All in all, the film sustains what started in the original: providing flashy, entertaining, but ultimately empty entertainment.
I will add one last observation. The three films that make up the RESIDENT EVIL trilogy (soon to be a quartet, with the addition of RESIDENT EVIL: DEGENERATION) easily comprise the most interesting films ever made based on video games. That would be a more impression achievement if there had been some really good movies based on that source, but it is unlikely for some time that another game will produce such a film franchise. ...more info
- Kinda Cool
Although I wasn't a fan of the first two films in the series, I decided to get this because it was recommended to me by a friend. Needless to say I wasn't disappointed. If you're after a popcorn "horror" flick with a difference then this is certainly the film for you.
I placed the word horror in quotation marks for a reason. I use the word horror in the classic context of something that is genuinely menacing, intimidating and is destined to give you nightmares e.g. The first Nightmare on Elm Street. This wasn't one of those movies that really sent the shivers down your spine, but it did have its moments where you would jump out of your skin and this is obviously something that is considered horror by todays standards.
Milla Jovovich returns to the series as Alice who is now on the move through the desert because she has learned the Umbrella Corp can track her location by satellite. After the incident in Raccoon City in the previous installment the Umbrella Corporation was unable to contain the T-Virus. It quickly spread across the world drying up all the lakes and rivers and turning almost every living thing into a Zombie. The Umbrella Corporation seem to be the only organised group of humans not in a Zombified state. In an attempt to try and create a cure for what's left of humanity, Dr. Sam Isaacs is using Alice clones in an attempt to create a cure and help tame the zombies so as to create a viable work force.
All is not so sweet however as a group of roaming Raccoon City survivors lead by Claire Redfield are attacked by a huge flock of ravenous zombified crows. 5 are killed in the incident, but it could have been more if it weren't for Alice incinerating the flock by using her psionic powers which were gained from her bried imprisonment in the Umbrella facility.
Overall this is a really good film and one of those popcorn flicks that you can enjoy with your friends. Although this isn't entirely based around the game storylines it's still a good stand alone movie and if the rumours are true, I can't wait for the fourth....more info
- More Zombies than you can shake an Umbrella At.
The Umbrella Corporation, a veritable Wal-Mart mixed-bagging it with Boeing, has unleashed something that will eventually murder the world. Unfortunately for the human race, it was not the cross-species horror that demolished hope or the bony fingers of the undead that picked away the last shreds of civilization. It was the fact that the Earth was a victim, too, and this process of victimization left the world a desert with humanity flickering in the breeze.
As far as a continuation, I found the movie likeable and hope people understand that this is a sequel work off information passed down from a prior sequel. Accordingly, it is not Resident Evil and it does not have Raccoon City to work with anymore. Raccoon City is actually a tomb now, nuked for those who omitted it from their mental radar, and the spread of the T-virus follows what any layman would register as a "catastrophe and then some." This means that the world went from the happy tinge of forests and foothills and turned a shade of red, infected and to the point that humanity had lost. This means that people survive by not following conventions: Instead of stopping they avoid planting roots and have developed a convey system. Instead of raiding big depots of their former lives they always avoid large cities, hoping to stay away from concentrations of the dead because even a forest of bullets could not keep that many teeth at bay. Fortunately for them, this has worked in some ways and the little towns they scavenge have kept the tired convey rolling. Unfortunately for them, they also face another threat --- Umbrella is far from dead and needs Alice.
On the plus side of the movie, everyone is here. Our comedian, our shout-out to the videogame, our Alice; every loose end is here and in play. Everyone save Alice has built a convoy and is practicing the "stay on the move" philosophy. I missed some of them, too, and was glad to see that they were all seen as important. The main players are here as well --- the dead are out and in force because food is probably harder to get a hold of and they really mean something. They look purty as well and that was equally important --- without some sexy undead, where would the world be?. On the downside, the story is somewhat weak, the dress of the people does not make me think "one bite means I'm dead!," and the bird portion of the movie is - well, if you watch it you'll know what I mean. I also saw a piece of the movie that was taken from Day of the Dead and wondered if this was incidental, but also had to ask myself if Umbrella might think this way.
Following all the games and the movies, I would have to answers with a resounding "yes."
If you liked the other movies, then you might like this one. Just remember that the focus is Alice, that the quality is lower in some ways, that you will lose some people you like, and that this is a videogame franchise. If you can deal with all of that and still say, "it sounds good," then you have plaything. I liked the movie BUT I like a lot of stuff so this isn't the focus. The focus is zombies, sexy little zombies and the T-virus that made them, and that makes me feel HaPPY inside. If it makes you feel, too, then perhaps we could get together and sing Imagine with an undead John Lennon.
- Lots of flash, little sense.
For a series of movies built off of a horror video game, Resident Evil has been an enjoyable ride.
Too bad this version has so many people who have supposedly survived for literally years in a world gone to hell making so many horribly bad life & death decisions.
Biggest gripe was with how the movie seemed to dumb down the returning characters to fit the "plot" they developed for this flick rather than raising the stakes to meet up with the characters they chose to revisit.
Poor L.J., not my favorite character, has my sympathy in this outing as yet another abused stereotype when he should have gotten the "heroic sacrifice" role that was given to Carlos....more info

- If you can get past Paul Anderson's lousy writing it's actually a fun flick
The Resident Evil franchise sparks a lot of debates; some love it and others simply hate it and see it as far inferior to the games they were inspired by. Make no mistake the Resident Evil films will never be mistaken for a George Romero movie and quite honestly the films will remain known only thanks to the video games. The day the games fade away I'm willing to bet so will the movies.
But with that said I will admit I have so far enjoyed this franchise for the most part. The movies aren't classics by any means, but they do make for some mindless fun and quite honestly sometimes that is all that is needed. But the Resident Evil films aren't without their flaws and the major flaw with the series is one person in particular. Paul WS Anderson. He's despised by legions of people, but he's really not that bad of a filmmaker. He's not very good, but he can produce and direct an enjoyable even if lackluster movie. But his writing is just simply horrendous.
Resident Evil: Extinction was once again written by Paul Anderson who wrote the previous 2 and directed the original. This is a Paul Anderson screenplay you should know what to expect by now. I've never thought he was very good with the character development, but with the Resident Evil films he's at his worst. While neither this one nor the previous 2 were poorly written per se, they did feature very weak characters and if not for the actors brining more to the characters than maybe they deserved they would be a total waste. I can't help, but feel it's more of Anderson being lazy and knowing he has an audience thanks to the games.
Resident Evil: Extinction might be the weakest written of the three, but also the best written as well. The characters all lack depth and nothing is really explained. Ali Larter was excellent as Claire Redfield, but my question who is the hell is she? I don't care if it's explained in the game. This is a feature film and not a video game. Her character could be developed in the game, but she also has to be developed in the movie. It almost seems like when Anderson writes his first draft it ends up being the final shooting script.
I think plot wise this has a little bit more going for it, but with that said the story itself isn't very good and knocks off other movies, but the dialogue was overall far better than Resident Evil 2, which at times was cringe worthy. If not for Alexander Witt's decent directing, Resident Evil 2 could have been terrible, which is does borderline at times.
Oded Fehr returns as Carlos Olivera and Mike Epps returns as L.J. and both of them are very much wasted. Since both survived the previous part and since both were free it seems they were brought back for the hell of it. While their characters weren't very much developed in the 2nd, here even less is done with them. While both actors make a little more of their characters they are simply there just for the hell of it. Carlos is given a little more to do than just to be there, but L.J. serves no real purpose. But at the end of the day neither character was very crucial to the movie.
I would love to see this franchise continue without Paul Anderson; I think there is some potential for this series and while I have enjoyed all 3 for what they are just mindless fun, but Paul Anderson's weak writing hurt what would have been a much better series of films. As I stated before as a director he's not bad, he's not very good, but he can craft a movie that is enjoyable, but at the end of the day forgettable. The original Resident Evil really wasn't so bad, the script was very weak, but it did have some fairly good action scenes and was enjoyable, but again we go back to the script you'll be hard pressed to remember anyone's name. Faceless characters and that's what Anderson does best.
As a writer Anderson, well let's just say he needs to take a few classes on how to write a screenplay. One of the clear influences on RE3 was George Romero's Day of the Dead; note to Anderson; pay attention to what Romero did with the screenplay and break it down and maybe one day you'll fully understand how to write a movie. I hate to totally trash someone and I've pretty much bashed Anderson non-stop in this review, but he deserves it. He isn't the worst writer and I'll admit I do enjoy some of his work again he can deliver a decent flick, but very forgettable, but I don't hate Paul Anderson like many people seem to do.
Director Russell Mulcahy does a fairly good job at keeping the pace going forward, which isn't an easy task when you're directing a movie based off of a Paul Anderson script. But he mostly keeps things interesting and does deliver some solid action scenes. The poor CGI does hurt a little bit, but they're still good enough scenes so they may not annoy you too much. Of all 3 Resident Evil films this is probably the best directed, but also has possibly the weakest and better script of the 3. So therefore I won't place all the blame on Mulcahy for the flaws.
The biggest problem with Resident Evil 3 is almost the whole movie was shot in the daylight. Movies like this barley work when shot during the day. Would all night scenes made this scary? No of course not, but that isn't really the point, but if anything it might have added a little bit of suspense and tension. I don't think night scenes would make this movie much better, but I think it would have helped a little bit.
Milla Jovovich returns as Alice and is the brightest spot of the movie; honestly I really like her a lot. She's a fairly decent actress, but does make for a very cool heroine. Milla Jovovich is the franchise and brings a lot to a very poorly developed character. Quite honestly she's the main reason I keep coming back to the series.
Overall Resident Evil: Extinction is a very flawed, but fun movie; by no means is this movie a classic at all. It's quite forgettable, but again it's a fun movie and a fun way to kill 90 or so minutes. My review may be a lot more negative than positive, but I do enjoy Resident Evil: Extinction, while this doesn't come highly recommended it does serve its purpose as a good popcorn flick....more info

- A Great Return to Form!
After the disappointing second movie outing for this console game, I was expecting the third instalment to be a disaster of epic proportions and signal the franchise's demise. Wow, was I surprised! This is a really great action movie. The set pieces are all cool. The way they further develop the character of the lead is interesting. The special effects and story both bring something new to the franchise.
There were a few minor niggles: the Vegas location could have been exploited for more; the super zombies were a little easy to kill with a knife to the throat(?); the climax battle was a little short. But all in all, I'll enjoy watching this again - always the sign of a good movie experience.
- Resident Evil: Extinction
The 3rd installment in one of the movies that brought back the Dead films. This is true if you go back many years ago to the George Romero days no one has made a Zombie film for many years. Then The Resident evil Trilogy started it back again. In this 3rd installment Alice seems all grown up and ready to kick some Zombie butt. The Resident Evil movies have all broken many zombie rules. Alot of older zombie movies were always in the dark or so but now Resident Evil Extinction changes zombie rules again by fighting zombie's in the day light and in the dessert of all place's and in which the earth is covered in. Awesome times and Milla at her best. A 4th Resident Evil is in the mind of Paul W. Anderson director of all Resident Evil movies and Husband of Milla Jovovich who also wants to finish the series in a big bang but not sure if Sony wants that also, So will see. I myself cant get enough of it and would love another installment. Seeing it in Blu Ray just shows great detail and the time it took to make these zombie's look the best on the big screen in years that I have ever seen. JRod

It's worth watching if you are a fan of the series or Milla Jovovich.
Lots of action too and keeps your interest but it's a bit weaker in
plot and big budget effects than the first two movies.
Zombies in the desert..lots of it seems similar to a Romero film..
maybe Day of the Dead?
It's still fun but has all been seen before..

The action in this movie very intense. Zombies taking over the world because of one corporation that couldn't keep anything under wraps. The only girl that can save the world is also discovering her own new powers, while at the same time keeping what's left if the worlds non-zombie population alive.
The reason I gave this movie a five star review is because it's so much more different then all the other zombie movies. They actually tell you how zombies came into play. While also adding a twist in the story plot. It is the best one so far in the three movie series....more info

- There is a Problem with the Blu Ray Version!
I've watched all three Resident Evil films and they're not bad. Resident Evil- Extinction in my opinion was probably the best of the three. No, I can't compare them to the videogames because I never played the videogames, so I can only compare them to other films in the "zombie" genre. They are all three decent films and each builds on the previous film. The first movie is concentrated on a particular location: the mysterious underground research facility under "Raccoon City", sometime in the future, where a research virus breaks out and turns both people and animals into undead zombies. In the second film, the virus has spread above ground and all of Raccoon City, if not the US, is affected. In this last movie, the virus has gone worldwide. I'm a big fan of "bonus features" on DVD. Sometimes you watch a movie and think umph--second-rate, if that. Then you watch some of the "bonus features" in which the director, the actors and actresses, the photographers and others involved talk about all the work they went through to produce the film--down to incredible little details, little minutiae that flash through in an instant of the final movie--you think about the hundreds of person-years that went into the making of the movie, the blood, sweat and tears, how hard they worked, and you end up thinking, "yeah, that WAS pretty cool actually how they did that--I never really thought how hard that was--actually that was a decent film..." [Other times I've watched special features and concluded the film was still terrible..] In this case, some of the special features on DVD were quite interesting and added value. In addition, some of the visuals in this movie were stunning. That's why I ended up getting the Blu-Ray version, after already owning the regular DVD version. Not once, but twice getting the Blu-Ray version. Neither time would the Blu-Ray version play properly. Not in just one player, either. I have two (different, and rather new) Blu-Ray players for TVs, and two Blu-Ray players built into computers, and the discs would not play in any of the 4 Blu-Ray players. First I got the 3-movie trilogy (plus a bonus disc). The first 2 movies play just fine, but "Extinction" did really bizarre things, but DOES NOT PLAY A MOVIE. I figured maybe that was just one defective disc. I went out and bought a stand-alone Blu-Ray version of RE-Extinction on Blu-Ray, brought it home, and it did EXACTLY THE SAME THING. I have not had this problem with any other Blu Ray product and am surprised that no other reviewer seems to have complained. WARNING: you may have a problem with this product in Blu-Ray version! It's possible not all discs are affected, but some seem to not play properly AT ALL! The movie itself is definitely worth watching if you like the genre.

- Liked it alot
I really liked the movie especially at the end. I'm a big fan of the other 'Resident Evil' movies and games. If you like a good sci-fi thriller, rent or by any of the movies....more info
- Good Movie Series & good set
This is a great set of movies with many good blu-ray features. A very good buy....more info
- Actually felt somewhat like the real Resident Evil
I was introduced to Resident Evil by the original games...later they decided to make films BASED on the games, but they were not ever all that great.
I saw the first one, and though it had some interesting scenes of how people met their doom. I didnt really like it. It paled in comparison to the games. And the games are far superior in story and in horror and still are to this day (resident evil 4 and 5 as the latest and greatest prime examples of this)
Anyways, i even tried watching the second RE film, but that was just so embarrassingly lame, i couldnt watch it all the way through...it might of turned out to be an okay movie, but at the time, i really wasnt impressed at all, i was NOT entertained. but i might go back and check that one out, just to give it another chance.
But ya, so far, i never really cared much for the hollywood film adaptations. Until now, because RE-Extinction was actually done in way that does the games some justice, and honors the tradition of the game series way better.
Of course the story and things are still just BASED on the games, you dont get a plot by plot similarity at all. But its done well this time around. And i think the monster at the end was impressive. They did a good job representing that thing.
Its not really the best acted movie. But it kept me entertained and interested. The part with how they fight off the hundreds of zombie crows was awesome.
And the story kind of touches on stuff that was kind of a mystery in the first film and uncovers some 'secrets' in ways.
So im actually interested in seeing whats next for this film 'franchise'.
I think its worth buying a used copy on amazon for cheap.
not a bad movie....more info
- A gamers struggle
I am torn between liking this series of movies and rejecting them for many a few reasons. Mainly its the fact that niether movie follow the game. Resident Evil Apocolypse was close only because it was in Raccoon City and it featured Jill Valentine. But overall there isnt much there. Only a few key elements of these movies tie in with the game..Umbrella Corp and the un-dead. Thats it....more info
- Zombies doing what they do best!
I'm not sure what all the griping is about this film. Do critics not understand the concept of science fiction? Science fiction: a broad genre of fiction that often involves speculations based on current or future science or technology. Get that Entertainment Weekly? It's not supposed to be realistic. I've had it about up to my a** with these paint-chip eating movie critics who grouse to the edge of galactic hell space about bad scripts and lack of originality. Three zombies are about to jump you and eat you alive, what are you supposed to say?
"O that this too too sullied flesh would melt, Thaw, and resolve itself into a dew!"
No, more likely it will be "Son of a B." or "F me, these zombies are really hungry." Apologies to all you haughty gas-inhaling elitists who deride every sci-fi film if it is not a Brothers Karamazov parable set in the future. Sometimes a biotechnology corporation, let's say a company called Umbrella Corp., takes things just a little bit too far and unfortunately we end up with a zombie apocalypse. These things happen. Then a group of people - not necessarily thespians of Shakespearean cogency, mind you - get some guns together and form a little brigade that marauders about killing zombies in a search of an antigen that will save the rest of humanity. And sometimes they will come upon a big box in the middle of the desert, that for no apparent reason happens to be filled with zombies. Oh the humanity. Let us all now go bathe, lest our sullied flesh melt after bearing witness to this squalid spectacle, meant so unmistakenly only for the coarse, unwashed masses, who cannot discern TRUE art from a grimy simulacrum of it. Such is the onerous existence of a film critic.
- Resident Evil in HD glory
This review is for the HD content, not the movie actor's quality.
RE 1 transfer to HD is excellent! The sound quality is outstanding!
RE 2 & 3 suffer a bit of the over darkening and slightly lower quality. Sound is above par, but below the quality of the first....more info
- Best picture and sound on Blu-ray
I could not believe the audio content I was missing until I bought this set....more info
- Now she can burn birds...with a thought, it cant get anyworse.
First she could make your nose bleed with a thought(apocalypse), now she uses her powers to burn birds. And apparently she can be turned on and off with a switch. This one is longer and more boring, and the clones at the end, that was even worse. This is not resident evil, this is a bad mix between mad max and whatever they could think of. Milla is a good actress, but this Alice character is more robot than human. 28 weeks later and Warning sign are better than this one....more info
- Great Deal
Great deal for the money. As for the movies I think extinction was the best one....more info
- Great deal!
Rather than buying the three movies separate, why not save some money & buy all three (even though the last one isn't really worth watching). The picture is superb & the sound is awesome...worth the purchase if you liked the 1st & 2nd installments of this "video game gone movie"....more info
- what a beautiful image and she looks so hot on blue-ray :P
have mor action than the video game, but is for good, and this babe is a gift of good...more info
- Better Than The First, Worse Than The Second
The second Resident Evil movie was a lot better than the first. Seeing as this is the third movie in the film, you'd either expect it to be a complete flop or keep with the momentum of the second movie and be even better... well, it was neither. It wasn't close to being as good as the second, but it was still better than the first.
This movie is a bit thin on story line. It is the first time that a plot from the actual games wasn't used, and I thought that was pretty interesting, but they certainly could have done a lot more with it. The premise is that the virus has leaked and the world has pretty much ended, becoming a vast desert land. Meanwhile, some of the cast from the second movie (plus some newbies) are out there, constantly moving, trying to survive. Same with Alice. The Umbrella Corporation, persistent as they are, are underground working on some pretty bad things. As it happens, the good guys and Umbrella will clash once again, though the conflict and the ensuing battle in the climax of this movie isn't nearly as exciting or tense as the second one...
...but I think that's because this movie was almost all action. In fact, there is so much action that the story suffered a bit for it. Don't get me wrong, what story there is is actually pretty good, and the films makes a nice little bookend to the series with the way it ends, but what we get here is a lot more punch than plot. This movie makes for a lot of interesting ideas, but those ideas could have been elaborated on if the fight scenes were cut down a tad.
Overall, this movie is definitely worth seeing. If you liked the first one, you'll like this one better, as long as you don't expect it to surpass the level of the second.
- Resident Evil Blu-Ray Trilogy
Resident Evil - The High-Definition Trilogy (Resident Evil/ Resident Evil: Apocalypse/ Resident Evil: Extinction) [Blu-ray] I LOVE THIS SERIES AND I LOVE MILLA. WHAT MORE CAN I SAY. KEEP THEM COMING. I AM THERE....more info
- A couple of decent action sequences don't save this terrible film...
This movie is bad - so bad, in fact, that I would rather it hadn't been made.
In lue of this travesty of film-making, watch Resident Evil: Apocalypse on TV... Every time Mike Epps' "L.J." is supposed to say M*** F***, they dub him saying "Motivator." It makes the movie_at least_57 times better. (Which is 946 times better than 'Resident Evil: Extinction.') ^_^...more info
