if you didn't get to see what you wanted to in the movie, i.e. details, backgrounds, tidbits of random knowledge - read this book, most likely it will fill you in on what you dont know or missed.

This is the third and final book in the DeCandido novelization tie-in to the Resident Evil series, and I have to say I'm glad to see the back of him as an author for this franchise; I hope whoever they got for Resident Evil: Retribution does a little better on characterization.

The plot aspects of this novel, like the two before it, are done well in my opinion. Extinction was probably the weakest of the first three movies in this respect; the plot was goo
Just like the movie, the book was very interesting. Alice has always had a unknown past due to the Umbrella Corporation and every book we find out more about what happened to her. That is why it is important to read and see all the parts of the story so that you can piece together her mysterious past life and experiences. The action is nonstop and although reading the book is not as great as watching the action in a flick, the author certainly makes up for it with plot integrity. There are alway ...more

This is an excellent novelization of the 3rd Resident Evil movie. If you remember from the end of the 2nd movie, Jill, Carlos, LJ, and Angie rescue Alice from an Umbrella facility. In the 3rd movie, Jill and Angie are nowhere to be found. This book goes beyond the movie and explains what happens to them. It's worth the read for that alone, never mind that it's also very well written. Go get it and see for yourself :-)
It's a sad day when you have to read the novelization of a movie to find out what happens to major charactes from the previous movies. Adds some slight depth to the events of the film. (Emphasis on slight.) But then, I didn't read this hoping for Dostoevsky. Light, fluffy, and gross in enjoyable proportions.

This was definitely better than the movie. It had so much more detail, including information of the people in the convoy, what Jill was up to, and what else was going on during the movie that wasn't shown. It also tells about the secondary characters - such as Otto Walenski(My favorite character, by the way), K-Mart, etc.

This book is a solid companion piece to the film. I'm not a big fan of books that are adapted from films, but this one goes much farther than that. It fills in what happens between Apocalypse and Extinction. It even fills in what happens to Jill Valentine. A pretty solid read if you like the Resident Evil films.

In my opinion this book is good. It combines action and terror. You always whant to read more because it's a mistery. I realy liked it because I always liked resident evil. But, the book could be better because it dosnt explain very good. I do recommend this book.

I found this book to be a really good read. It also filled in any gaps of understanding I had from watching the movie. The Resident Evil novelizations are great reads if you enjoy the movie franchise.

Grabbed me in and was 10x better than the B movie. If you are a fan of the sieres at all, this is worth a read. Characters actually have minds and souls, AND Jill Valentine isn't just lost into nothing as was the little girl from Apoc.
A good novelization, I enjoyed the added parts with Jill and the explanation for Angie as she was just mysteriously missing in the movie. But why did the author cut out the Alice/Carlos kiss?!? I mean come on it was my favorite part of the whole freakin movie!

I always like to read the movie novelizations, it's kind of nerdy but you get so much out of the novels! All of the character background and development you don't get to see on screen. I love it!

This book I enjoyed more then the others to be honest. This is my favorite.

Well written movie novelizations, perhaps better than the actual movie. Fills in a lot of holes in the movie such as the eventual fates of Angela and Jill Valentine.

Recommends it for: zombie fans
Go ahead and laugh at me for reading something so mind-numbing and pop-culturish, but honestly I couldn't wait for the movie. And from what I read the movie is going to be unbelievable.
