Third entry in the series is a weaker one with a less inspired plot and delivers far less on the action as well. The crow sequence is quite impressive but the film never rises to that level again for the rest of its runtime. This is a series that always delivers a cliffhanger ending and this one is no exception on that front. Even Jovovich looks a little bored this time around.
This franchise, by its third installment, has yet to create a favorable movie. While "Extinction" sacrifices the somewhat eerie scenery of its preceders it manages to expand the universe, bringing some interesting ideas along the way. Nevertheless, it's as inconsistent and ugly as expected.
Maginally better than the first two entries, if only for the crow + Vegas fight scenes, but still a muddled mess with paper-thin characters and a plot that feels like it could have been better handled in a 22-minute television episode.
