Resident Evil: Retribution Manages to be loud with action and zombie killing that has ZERO point

Let’s get this out the way right now, Resident Evil: Retribution is a horrible movie; Paul WS Anderson manages to achieve everything that a bad filmmaker possesses, horrible acting, a plot that goes nowhere, no consistency, poor action scenes, you name it and he has almost all of it. I’ve considered the resident evil movies to be a guilty pleasure due to the director’s previous works such as 1995’s cult movie “Mortal Kombat” which till this day it is still regarded as a good video game adaption film and 2007’s “DoA: Dead or Alive” which he managed to show off what the franchise likes to show off also has a plot in which none of the game does even possess.
But for the Resident Evil movie franchise, he manages to move further away from the game and introduce some insane story changes as for Alice being the main character and leaving the characters from the game themselves as side characters, making some bad guys from the game into good guys, steering away from the games like introducing post-apocalyptic earth run by zombies and so much more. It’s a shame that this is what we get, even though the franchise has drifted away from its horror elements in recent years, the latest game “Resident Evil 6” brings the franchise back to it roots so why won’t the film do the same thing. The first two films had its horror elements, but Extinction, Afterlife, and Retribution strip all that away in favor of a zombie action flick.
Let’s get to the plot here, this movie picks off exactly where Afterlife left off where Alice (Mila Jovovich) and the allies are attacked by Umbrella’s strike force led by former friend Jill Valentine (Sienna Guillory) whom she is controlled by the anti-humanity supercomputer, The Red Queen from the first film.  Alice gets kidnapped by the Red Queen and it up to her and her allies, Leon S. Kennedy (Johann Urb), Ada Wong(Bingbing Li), Barry Burton(Kevin Durand), and Luther West (Boris Kodjoe) to stop the Red Queen. So this so far has little done to with the actual game itself and whatever Paul WS Anderson wants it to be. Never mind that Rain (Michelle Rodriguez) returns somehow and Albert Wesker (Shawn Roberts) also returns somehow with little to no explanation at all even when these characters both clearly died in the previous films.   Also lets never forget the random boss battles in this movie and just like the last one, they are just pointless add-ons just the left the fans to know that they are in the games.
This movie is worth passing up, it not worth it in 3D, not even in 2D; they are other films out there in theaters right now that are way better than Resident Evil: Retribution
