Surprisingly good

I'm surprised that I went to the trouble of registering and then writing a review for THIS movie. First time movie review for me. I saw a preview of Extinction on another movie I watched at home and it looked intriguing. Despite all the free streaming I get, I even paid $3 to watch this. Happy to say I was not disappointed, in fact, I was impressed. This is a solid piece of movie making. Cinematography was evocative and effective, creating a powerful framework for the story...and even played with some of the themes of the movie; there were a few scenes when the blues of winter almost looked like greens and I questioned what I was looking at...is that grass? Or snow? Hope or no hope?

Acting was solid. I like both of these actors. I was introduced to Jeffrey Donovan recently on the 2nd season of Fargo and I get it now, he is good. Mathew Fox is convincing. The girl also is a fresh new face.

Zombies, and I'm a bit of an expert here, are sufficiently terrifying because they are fast enough and slow enough to scare you (World War Z...too fast and as a result not much of a connection. Walking Dead, too damn slow). Don't want to expound on this too much as it would spoil it.

But the real treat for me was the story and ensuing questions that inevitably accompany such a plot. It's one of the reasons I loved Walking Dead 1st season so much. In the face of such adversity, what would I do? Again, no spoilers, but I found myself wondering what I would have done and any time a movie can get me to talk to myself, I know it's doing something right.

Lastly, the more important plot within a plot, the relationship, was cleverly peeled back a little at a time. Not too little to annoy me, but enough to intrigue me. This is what sets this apart from other 'zombie' movies. It's really less about them and more about the 'remains of the day' that make this a winner in my book.

I believe this movie was never released in theaters, too bad, but glad I found it.

Zombie Movie Having An Identity Crisis

Extinction feels like a movie that can't decide what it wants to be. Zombie flick or a PG drama about a single Dad bringing up a child. Maybe the writer handed over some scribbled notes and then disappeared.

The sets were all well done, with high level production values, but where's the damn story. NOTHING of any interest occurred for long sections at a time. Mostly centring around feeding the kid and listening to her whine. The first hour should have been compressed into 30 minutes.

The tension between the men was confusing. Stringing out the audience can be effective if information is fed in appropriate chunks. But we actually need the clues before the end of the film if we're to draw conclusions early enough to care. The 'cliffhanger' wasn't pivotal to the story.

On the plus side, I thought the Zombie was excellent. As a hybrid, evolving species it was a formidable hunter despite it's lack of sight. There are no explanations why it might be evolving in this way though. And something that bleeds before it has been injured will probably be weakened, not made stronger.

Extinction is a slow film. The only reason a person of my tastes would watch it is for the unique Zombie footage.
