File under "Yet another dreadful Netflix Original production". Extinction is basically an episode of Amazon's underwhelming PDK Electric Dreams. It's obvious that quality is irrelevant for Netflix: the only thing that matters - in the age of algorithms and streaming - is quantity, metrics, and "related content" (= more of the same). Thus, "If you liked crap like Bright, you will like crap like Extinction."
Bad movie that might have the right look but the script is beyond terrible. With better writing this could have been cool since the twist is not that bad. Everything about this movie feels rushed and severely compromised.
What is Netflix doing? It's in a primary position to redefine feature-length genre entertainment for the streaming age, yet it seems hellbent on propping up the old direct-to-video model. If it's not good enough for theatres, it's not good enough for your customers - and it's certainly not "original content". Films with the Netflix logo are beginning to resemble *that section* of your old VHS rental store.
It is pretty bad, reminded me of Skyline (which is also terrible). The script was just terrible, and even though parts of the plot were handeled well, most of it was poorly thought out. Even the effects were low budget
