Buy it... in the context of the movie if you're deaf; that way, you can appreciate Milla Jovovich's conveniently displayed thighs without being subjected to Charlie Clouser's awful music.

Avoid it... if you are an evolved creature of at least marginal intellectual development and have thus transcended beyond the usual kind of brainless, industrial video-game music aimed at horny teenage boys.

Resident Evil: Extinction: (Charlie Clouser) Amazingly, in the 2000's, the Resident Evil franchise managed to become the most fiscally successful video game-derived topic ever to be adapted to screen. That didn't stop the screenplays of the four films from 2002 to 2010 to require less intelligence with each entry, of course, but who cares about intellectual or logical coherence when every sequel is good for $50 million in domestic returns and maybe even $150 million worldwide? The third entry in the franchise is Resident Evil: Extinction, yet another pitch towards bored, horny teenagers in search of cheap, gruesome mayhem and a little more flesh from concept icon Milla Jovovich. The virus that wiped out Racoon City in previous films has now been spread by the shady Umbrella corporation over the entire planet, infecting nearly all people and animals. They've also managed to destroy the environment better than American Vice President Dick Cheney (like Alice, capable of shooting people in the face) could have ever dreamed, too, with no plant life or water to be found. The setting of Resident Evil: Extinction is quite a contrast, however, taking the slogan of Las Vegas literally and burying it in sand; our slinky, super-human heroine meets up with some recurring characters (and character stereotypes) in this vicinity and shockingly does battle with the mutants and zombies in broad daylight. That last part is alone such a violation of the zombie genre that it cannot be excused; special effects technology, however, must be inexpensive enough to allow for fully rendered monsters without the money-saving convenience of a shadowy set. The problem with the film, as usual for the brainless franchise, is that it doesn't attempt to convince us of character motivations and assumes that everyone on screen will make about the dumbest goddamn choice possible in order to put them into a situation of peril from which good old Alice can rescue them. Of special note is an obvious rip-off of Alfred Hitchcock in a bird attack sequence. It's not surprising that these films receive nothing more than glorified video game music; even the most basic looped, industrial trash will suffice to help sustain the erection of an average teenage boy who toils five grade levels below his expected scholastic levels in math and language skills because his parents allow him to marvel at Jovovich's thighs and killing prowess without hesitation.

The Sad thing? Most video game music nowadays is far better than this. *NM*
