Extinction – Review

Netflix’s Extinction is one of the better alien invasion thrillers that’s come down the pike in quite awhile, mainly because the ‘invasion’ is actually the least important aspect of the story.

It’s more a commentary on what it means to be human, and what we’ll do to protect what we believe to be ours.

Michael Peña plays Peter, our proxy in this strange, new world (that looks a lot like our own).

He acquits himself well, which is important because if we don’t buy his performance the whole movie may not fall apart, but it would certainly be less stable.

Extinction continues a trend began in Tau–though on a significantly larger scale–about the effect of AI (artificial intelligence) on humanity.
