Resident Evil: Extinction

Punk-ass movie reviewers panned this film calling it “videogame-inspired nonsense” and the like. Meanwhile, it debuted at #1 at the box-office and continues to pull in crazy bucks. Why? Well…let’s see…could it be because…IT’S A FUCKING AWESOME ZOMBIE MOVIE?

I guess their idea of a good zombie movie is 28 Days Later. Yeah, it was good. But not as dark, subversive and “fantastical” as R/E. Maybe they don’t like the fact that a corporation is the villain. Maybe they don’t like the fact that Mila Jovovitch reprises her role as a zombie-killing hottie with super-powers. Maybe they burned out the last iota of their “Suspension Of Disbelief” on the Lord Of The Rings trilogy. C’mon! You get what you pay for!

Director Paul W.S. Anderson rocks the third installment of this series (yeah, based on the hit videogame–BFD!) balls out with over-the-top special effects as our heroine Alice finally realizes her true psyonic potential and helps a band of “T-Virus” survivors through a desert wasteland that used to be Las Vegas.

Have no idea what I’m talking about? Good. Get out of the way and let the rest of us marvel at the imaginative blood work, badass fight sequences & zombie makeup. Don’t fret. The “Sex In The City” movie will be out soon.
