During my time of writing reviews I can say that I’ve seen many terrible films. I dislike some and like a very small few. If I’m lucky I hate, and I mean, “Every single copy should be burned,” hate even less. Honestly, I F-ing hate the latest installment of the already overly sequeled series. This is yet another example of how Paul W.S. Anderson really should be banned from making these incredibly bad films.

The entirely lame premise of “Resident Evil: Retribution” is Alice wakes up in some lab… and is recruited by the dregs of upper-Umbrella management to fight Umbrella's A.I. That is it and the recruitment takes place in the last minute. Seriously, there is nothing else in this story. There is some shooting, some running and then some shooting again. NOTHING in the way of a story is told here.

Milla Jovovich is meant as the eye-candy that can tour us through this running/shooting marathon. I wish she would realize that she is much too talented to make this kind of utter crap. Michelle Rodriguez and other cast fit right in. In other words, they all know this is the best work they can get/do and being stuck in this crap is enough for them to pay the bills. Yes, diet Val Kilmer, I’m talking about you, too.

Paul W.S. Anderson should be banned from making films. The man writes dribble, produces fluff and directs incredibly unimpressive action sequences that leave us wanting to poke our eyes out and wishing we never loved film in the first place.

I refuse to waste your time like Anderson does with anything he directs. The final product is exactly what we expect form this man. A terrible film that need to be banned by anyone with good taste. Don’t watch it and don’t justify this guy ruining “Resident Evil” even more with yet another undeserved sequel… though we are sure to be punished with one anyway.

Also, please stop embedding that ridiculous Umbrella logo into everything including irises. UGH!
