EXTINCTION (Theatrical Release USA 2018)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.4|5.0 Starsììì

—does not showcase Michael Pen͂a well—needs a different lead actor such as Antonio Banderas, Javier Bardem, or perhaps Oscar Isaacs to strengthen its storyline. The movie makes a mistake by focusing too much time on the dream before getting to the unfolding of the dream which makes the expected event a ‘Finally! We’re getting somewhere!” This takes away from thrill factor and literally forces the movie into ‘bomb’ status. It’s a sci-fi flick without excitement.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. ‘Sorta,’ ‘kinda’ interesting, but not enough interesting to invest time and money.
