Resident Evil: Extinction

Movies, Action and adventure
2 out of 5 stars
Tooling around a plague-ridden America, Alice (Jovovich) packs a small arsenal of weapons, some mysterious psionic powers and—curiously—no pants. The first Resident Evil was a guilty pleasure, pitting zombies against Milla’s quiet, confident ass-kicking—more like runway voguing. But this second sequel is more interested in tired Mad Max squabbles and CGI explosions. An occasional wide shot, of half-buried Las Vegas, say, hints at the postapocalyptic doom these movies have never quite achieved. A cloning lab filled with dozens of naked Millas sets up the next installment.
