I don’t know why I keep going out to see these movies. They’re so bad. I got over the fact that these films are not going to be accurate representations of the storyline or the atmosphere from the video games, but I always hope that there is going to be more to the story of each film than seeing the director’s wife hyper-stylized into being an action star.
The fight scenes are okay, but it just annoys me how the plot of every single movie has been “we have to get from point A to point B” and then the end of every single film has been “now that we’re at point B we are going to end the movie with a cliffhanger that shows that this is not our final destination and the past ninety minutes that you just spent in the theatre were entirely pointless because nothing was accomplished and there is so much more to the story, but you have to wait until the next film to see that.”
And then the next film rolls around, and there is no story, and nothing ever gets accomplished, ugh. I don’t know why I watched five of these movies. I need to stop.
Paul W.S. Anderson is trying to kill my favorite video game series.
Fuck you and your wife (Milla Jovovich).
