Video Games that were made into movies - Not a good idea!
January 14, 2008 7:17pm CST
For years that video games have been out - for the nintendo, sega, playstation, xbox and even for the computer - there has been bad movies made that were based from the video game. I have to give credit to Angelina Jolie's two movies of Tomb Raider, Resident Evil and Doom. Now tracing back in history and now - I've watched older movies such as Super Mario Bro., Double Dragon, Final Fantasy Spirits Within, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat and they were just flops, cheesy, poor acting and some of them that were made weren't even base on the video game - especially Super Mario Bro. Hitman was a great PC Game to begin with of course they recently released a movie last year of late 2007 - didn't do so well. Now there will be upcoming movies such as Halo and even Tekken. I just hope they do not mess up the plot of Tekken and to avoid putting cheesy characters and cheesy martial arts moves something that was similar from Street Fighter, Power Rangers, Mortal Kombat or Double Dragon.

I understand where you are coming from, Super Mario Bros. and Mortal Kombat came to my mind when I first started reading this, but look at the time frame when the cheesy bad acting ones were made...not a whole lot in the means of special effects and what not!! I am actually looking forward to Hitman!! I don't pay attention to if it does well in theaters or not or what critics say, I watch what I want because I WANT to see it. Everyone has a difference of opinion, so I really only listen to my own...LoL!!

i also love to watch the three movies of Resident Evil and two in Tomb Raider. it is not entirely true that it is not a good idea to turn video games into movies. the problem is they did not prepare the best storyline. one of the basis of being the best movie or being hit into box office is the story. if the film is a famous video game but putting up cheesy effects and boring storyline then the movie will be just a flop plus the poor acting of the characters for the movie. i want to watch Resident Evil over and over again...that is my most favorite among them. i hope they come up with another sequel. Resident Evil 4....?
