A man's home life starts to suffer when he has recurring nightmares about a destructive and unknown force. He must soon find the strength to save his wife and two daughters when extraterrestrials launch a devastating attack on the planet.

I say Extinction is worth the watch. There are a lot of things you can nitpick about the story but the big twist at the end makes up for it. I haven't been that surprised and unaware of an ending like that in a long time. I can't say much about the movie without possibly tipping you off to the ending. But if you like scifi movies then give this one a watch.

The acting is okay, and the beginning moves slow but don't give up on it. And if you want the little girl to die so she can quit putting everyone else in danger, you are not alone. She was a cliche plot device.

Extinction is a low budget scifi movie with a cool story. But if the ending gets spoiled you probably won't enjoy it as much. And you can't get hung up on the plot holes. Let them go.

  1. I like Michael Pena and this one caught me by surprise. I agree with your rating. Wish there were more like these.

  2. I liked the movie a lot and was shocked on how it evolved. Definitely would want to watch more movies like this one, but I agree. That little girl wasn't my fave either.(lol) Hugs...RO

    1. lol! As a mom I felt bad, but that little girl needed to be cut loose. Thanks for stopping by.
