What is it with Netflix lately? They're taking over, everything I watch seems to be a Netflix original movie. And in some cases such as this one that's not entirely a bad thing. Extinction is an oddly enjoyable little scifi tale starring Michael Pena, Lizzy Caplan and Mike "Luke Cage" Colter. I went in knowing nothing and expecting very little and walked away pleasantly surprised. I'm not a big sci-fi guy and the cover certainly makes this look like a generic alien invasion film. I can assure you that it isn't, in fact it's a well constructed highly original clever little movie. Arguably it's a big "Twist" style movie so I can say very little. What I will say however is that it's well worth a watch regardless of your stance with the sci-fi genre. I found myself genuinely shocked by what I was watching and that doesn't happen very often. Netflix gets another thumbs up for one of their originals, good going. The Good: Some excellent ideas Looks great The Bad: Mike Colter is underused I still struggle to like Michael Pena Yet another Netflix movie that feels like it should be a tv show Things I Learnt From This Movie: Lizzy Caplan is immortal and refuses to age
