EXTINCT (Theatrical Release Canada 2021)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì 

Extinct—weird film without appeal—plays more for teen/adult audiences than children.  This full length film has an interesting concept, and the donut-like characters are fresh, but the overall presentation works on the average.
