Resident Evil 3: Extinction

Warning!!! **Contains Spoilers**

I am a fan of the Resident Evil franchise. I loved the video game, and when I heard there would be a movie, I flipped. Now, we are experiencing the 3rd movie in said franchise. I was soooo excited to see it!

To my suprise, there were two characters from RE2 that I missed. The character Angie Ashford (young actress Sophie Vavasseur), Dr. Ashford's daughter, and the character Jill Valentine (actress Sienna Guillory), the kick-a$$ cop who was awesome! There were, however, two characters who remained, L.J. (Mike Epps) and Carlos Olivera (Oded Fehr). As usual, Milla Jovovich stealed the show. She is my favorite, of course!

I was hoping for more backstory on how the infection spread throughout the world. It was kind of boring in parts. I found that I did not like this 3rd installment as much as I thought I would.

I was rather disappointed with the movie overall, especially, the ending. I suppose it left room for a 4th movie. I really hope they don't make another one. It left too many unanswered questions for me. Like, what happened when her friends left on the helicopter? Was Alaska really that safe? Did she meet up with them? Ugh, I was disappointed, which I hated, because I loved the other 2 movies. Ah well, check it out for yourself and see what I mean. They could have done a better job, IMHO!!
