Resident Evil: Extinction DVD Review

By Prairie Miller

Female Chauvinist As Dressed To Kill Biker Babe

Zombies may be eating the human race alive in Resident Evil: Extinction, but no movie reviewer, however cutting their criticism, could ever take a bite out of this baby sailing right on through box office heaven. And the same surely goes for the DVD release.

This third game-to-screen bloody fleshfest is under new management, with Aussie Russell Mulcahy (The Shadow, Ricochet) directing. Penned by Paul W.S. Anderson, Resident Evil: Extinction finds good Samaritan, shapely female chauvinist virus-resistant, dressed to kill biker babe Milla Jovovich and gutsy nomadic survivors stalking legions of eating disorder zombies in the Nevada Desert, while taking a gamble on a stopover in an obliterated Vegas.

Banding together to surmount a whole host of messy new challenges like birds of a feather cannibalistic crows, while stressed out scientists huddle underground mulling solutions, are ready-to-rumble thesps Oded Fehr, Mike Epps, Ali Larter, Spencer Locke, and Ashanti as Nurse Betty. Rarely has mass murder been so dull. Pass the smelling salts.
