In a system where remakes and sequels are the usual thing and original ideas are hard to come by, we are given Looper; a film that is all about the same old thing over and over.

How do you bring back all the characters that you tried to love in all the other Resident Evil films and place them in one film that feels just like a video game? You create Resident Evil: Retribution.
Before I get into this review, I will say that I was never a fan of the Resident Evil film franchise. I enjoyed the first because it tried, but then I lowered all expectations for the others. I still go into the theater with a clean slate and try to see why people by tickets for these films and then I found out why. I believe that everyone who buys tickets for these films are teenage boys taking a girl to a scary movie, couples who want to do it in the back of the theater, and film reviewers like me who spend the money and watch the film only to find out later that it was a waste of perfectly good cash that could have been spent going down to Los Angeles and watching The Master instead.
