Review Scores for Extinction
Let’s start off with how the critics have taken to Extinction. Quite simply, they haven’t. On RottenTomatoes, the series doesn’t even register a score making it officially rotten. Metacritic isn’t much better currently scoring at an average of 29 out of 100. Most criticise the plot and the fact it left its twist for the end.
User reviews have been far more kind, as often the case with Netflix Originals with user scores on IMDb hitting 6.0 out of 10.
What to Watch Next on Netflix
Netflix has already released some fantastic sci-fi movies throughout 2018 already. Earlier in the year, Netflix acquired Paramount’s other big sci-fi movie of the year, The Cloverfield Paradox. The movie shares some of the same twists and turns but is set in an expanded universe which is a must watch for any sci-fi fan. More recently, Netflix released an AI movie called TAU which should also now be on your list.
