I generally cite this film as the cause of my dislike for the zombie genre, and looking back upon it, I can definitely see why. While there are a few improvements in this film over previous installments, there are a lot of things that are far worse in this film.
The production quality of the films increased again over the previous film. The cinematography is good and far less nauseating, and the set design is very good to create the post-apocalyptic setting. The CGI had its highs and lows in this film, much like that of the previous. The editing is also much less erratic, and there is far less use of unnecessary slow motion.
This film also has a much more film-like plot. Instead of feeling like a survival horror game, the plot feels like an actual action film. The writing gets even more ridiculous in this film, though. For example, the psychic elements and the cloning parts are absolutely stupid. There lies my biggest issue with the film: it attempts to create a serious tone, but elements of the plot drag it down and make it feel extremely silly. Other parts just feel like a rip-off of other films, like the zombie bird scene.
Overall, I thought that "Resident Evil: Extinction" had some good elements, but some extremely cheesy writing in parts. While I may have been a bit overly harsh on it when I first saw it, I can definitely understand why I didn't like it.
