ALIEN EX­TINC­TION

re­leased Out Now! 2014 | 15 | DVD

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Reviews -

The Asy­lum is fa­mous for its mock­busters – unashamed cash-in Z-movies riff­ing off cur­rent hits, so the ti­tle of this one is mys­ti­fy­ing un­til you know it’s been re­named from Age Of Tomorrow.

Oddly, though, this isn’t an Edge Of Tomorrow rip-off. It’s a ter­ri­ble Ar­maged­don rip-off that turns into a ter­ri­ble Bat­tle: Los An­ge­les rip-off. Dire on ev­ery level, it’s not even so bad it’s funny. It’s as crappy and cyn­i­cal as fake made-in-the-Philip­pines ac­tion fig­ures.

Ex­tras Gag reel, be­hind-thescenes (six min­utes). Dave Golder
