Film: Resident Evil: Extinction Click for more info

More of the same never seem to be enough for most of the 111 minutes this film runs for. But it's not the lack of originality that brings RE:E down; no, it's more the lack of the spirit the previous two had (the same spirit found in the games) that makes this a merely passable film.

The acting and direction is fine, and there are some great set pieces, but just when you feel something big is about to be turned over, the Extinction lets you down and takes the easy way out. The first two weren't epics by any means, but they had a lot more ambition and scope than this did.

One for the fans looking for completion then? For the rest of you, there's always DVD.
