The style of this film, Retribution, in script and design, is based on the Closure idea mentioned in Gestalt Psychology. This is where our mind quickly fills in gaps for things we don't see.

eg If you see a bunch of beer cans in a bath full of ice you can read the brands on most of them because you've seen them before. You don't think "that says V on it from this angle but I can't see the B so maybe it's not there ."

Another example may be seeing a girl sitting at a table. You don't tend to look under it before you conclude that her bottom half is actually there.

Here are some less stupid examples.
