Re: This won't end well....
I find it very appropriate that it will be released in 2012.

Most likely on December 21st.

Y'know. Cause it'll single-handedly end the ****ing world.

I imagine that the voluminous amount of dialogue and story will translate well.

Isn't that going to get a smidgen repetitive for a movie? 'Find big guy, find weak spot, stab weak spot... Rinse and repeat' ?

Re: This won't end well....
Wing Commander and Max Payne are actually movies you can watch and have a good time, both aren't Ben Hur but above average. Keep in mind, MOVIE ONLY.

Compared to the games, well  :lol:

If you haven't seen any of the original Street Fighter movie, you haven't lived.

No, I'm not really a big movie person, and movies based on video games just doesn't make the cut.

Movies made with a bad script, poor actors and by a terrible director will generally suck, video-game based or not.

I actually liked the first Mortal Kombat movie (except for hte ending. I hate Liu Kang)

Also true, but about 90% of all video game movies contain all three of those, so...

Re: This won't end well....
Films based on video games are just as good as films based on books. They generally suck (Eragon, for example) and try to sqeeuze an extra dollar from the fans. There are a few exceptions, thank the gods (For example, the Lord of the Rings).

Has anyone seen the the first part from "Escape from City 17", by the way? The first two parts had a $500 dollar budget.
