Resident Evil: Retribution Vastly Overestimates the Nation’s Love for the First Resident Evil Movie

Hot on the heels of the mind-blowingly dumb clip from yesterday, here’s a TV spot for Resident Evil: Retribution which heavily implies the film’s main assets are 1) a ton of shit being thrown directly at the screen, BECAUSE 3-D and 2) Michelle Rodriguez is back! The same Michelle Rodriguez who hasn’t been in the series since the first film, four full movies ago. Am I supposed to be impressed? Was Michelle’s “Rain Ocampo” character supposed to be so fantastic that bringing her back for the new movie is supposed to be some kind of treat for me? Do the people who like the Resident Evil movies give a shit that Michelle Rodriguez is reprising her role from a decade ago? I can’t help but suspect the answer is no.
