FULL REVIEW: CONTAINS SPOILERS


VERDICT

Extinction is a bland, safe sci-fi that is void of any serious drama or thrills. While the concept looks good on paper, the execution fails to bring anything worthwhile to the table as the messy script, passable CGI and bored performances make for a slow story that easily surrenders and succumbs to its own shortcomings.

★★★½☆☆☆☆☆☆ 3.5/10 – Pass
