Erin Meister, Boston Globe: It's all so much more fun when you're the one with the controller, telling the heroes what to do: Watching this stuff unfold onscreen is like sitting by while someone plays your video games without you. Read more

Kevin Crust, Los Angeles Times: The story and characters are surprisingly engaging, with fight scenes and scares effectively placed between plot turns. Read more

Scott Brown, Entertainment Weekly: Resident Evil: Extinction plays like a flabby middle chapter, full of nerdy details but fraudulently short on the ruined Vegas-scape that ads have been promising. Read more

John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press: More of the same game. Read more

Matt Weitz, Dallas Morning News: The palette is post-apocalyptic America, with generous squeezes of every cinematic pigment from The Omega Man to Mad Max to Night of the Living Dead. Really, the lack of flying saucers ultimately becomes quite amazing. Read more

Jim Ridley, L.A. Weekly: It's the first of the agonizing Resident Evil movies that could remotely be considered fun. Read more

Jack Mathews, New York Daily News: The action is not so much bloody as bloody monotonous. Read more

Kyle Smith, New York Post: Resident Evil: Extinction is no more interesting than watching someone else play with his Xbox. Read more

Jason Anderson, Globe and Mail: The third in the modestly successful franchise spawned by the ultraviolent video-game, Resident Evil: Extinction provides little in the way of satisfying explanations or, for that matter, satisfying anything. Read more

Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star: If ever a movie was made for a quick in-and-out engagement at the multiplex, this is it. Read more

Nigel Floyd, Time Out: The scariest visage is that of Alice, whose flawless, airbrushed complexion is either a throwback to Mulcahy's New Romantic pop promos or something dictated by Jovovich's L'Oreal contract. Read more

Joe Leydon, Variety: Pic never really achieves maximum velocity as a full-throttle action-adventure opus, despite game efforts by returning star Milla Jovovich. Read more
