Critic Reviews for Extinction
The big twist is a good one, there are some decent action sequences and Lizzy Caplan is always good to watch, but there isn't enough here to keep things from dragging.
Less of a sci-fi thriller than a mass-market simulation of one.
A B-movie with a blockbuster attitude, and not in a fun way.
It's a simple, efficient sci-fi thriller with big Blockbuster aspirations but without much charisma or soul.
(Written by James Perkins) A largely by the numbers sci-fi film that takes an interesting turn for its final act
Audience Reviews for Extinction
This film is severely disappointing and another poor choice by Netflix films. The filmmaker lacked any true storytelling capabilities, the beats are poorly staged and suddenly, the twist is dumped on the ground. If the filmmakers were planning on further adventures, it might have payed to invest a little more focus on the characters, this plays out like any other tired mid ranged sci fi film. There is a reason no one watches these budgeted films at the cinema anymore, poor storytelling and uneventful filmmaking. Why would I recommend this to anyone? Michael Pena is wasted in the family guy role, a shame considering the depth he has, it is a miscast that shatters this film. I enjoy a good twist on a tired narrative and this is where I'll throw a couple of points to writer, there is some fresh ideas here, but the film is a narrative nightmare, why is it so slow? Extinction is another thud in the Netflix canon that includes Bright and Spectre, both promised interesting concepts, just poor execution. Films like this hurt mid budgeted films and its a shame, I would like more concept adult focused films. 20/11/2018.
A maintenance man is haunted by dreams of an alien invasion - which nobody, especially his wife, believes. Boy, is there some agonizing reappraisal when ... guess what happens?! It's kind of fun, slow at the top, picking up steam as it goes. Summer movie.
