(2015) Extinction

Extinction is a very solid entry in the survival-zombie-bullshit. I’m not backhanding this movie with that genre tag but let’s just face it, this concept has been done a plethora of times with often very successful results.

Nevertheless I can’t help but feel like this movie stands on its feet among some greats like 28 Days Later. Matthew Fox from Lost is an incredibly underrated actor, natural on screen but able to intimately emotionally engage audiences with very little words. I like him the more I get to talk about liking him.

As for the story line, it’s fairly generic to these types with its originality coming from its drama portion and really the quality of its acting. Quinn McColgan is very natural on screen and shows a ton of promise, reminds me a lot of Dakota Fanning.

It’s good, check it out.
