Resident Evil: Retribution(2012)

Resident Evil: Retribution is beyond bad, it's an awful movie experience. I wasn't expecting much from the fifth installment of this endless series other than being at least an improvement over Resident Evil: Afterlife, which was terrible too. I have to admit i thought the first one was entertaining and mindless fun, considering it a guilty pleasure of mine. That's the reason i continued seeing the others. However, i can safely say that Resident Evil: Retribution is one of the worst movies i've seen of all time.

The plot here is just way too illogical and ludicrous. Mr. Anderson simply ignores a major event that happens in the former movie and expects us to be fine with it, giving no explanations whatsoever about the return of a certain character. The action scenes are not exciting at all because almost all of them are in slow motion. This just got on my nerves and bored me to death. Also, the choreography is so over the top that i found it laughable. Finally, the movie has a lot of plot holes and practically no character development at all. Maybe i'm being too harsh, but i really feel like there was no passion involved on this project.
