Extinction (2018) – A Quick Capsule Review
Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Extinction is a somewhat odd beast. It’s frustrating, a little dull and yet at it’s core has a pretty clever central idea that’s never quite realised. The cast are fine and the direction solid but at every corner you can’t help but notice that the films imagination often quickly hits the limit of it’s budget, often leaving it feeling cheap and unfinished. It’s worth noting that Extinction was dumped onto Netflix by Universal who bailed on the films cinematic release. So not the worst Netflix ‘original’ but also not the best.
Best Bit: The central idea
