First final fantasy: the spirits within, a movie so terrible it sank the whole production company, probably because it was the worlds biggest bait and switch and had nothing to do with the series, which is what everyone really wanted. Then resident evil, which despite the relative simplicity of the game plot, the producers decide to make it about some chick with superhuman powers, I mean, where was Chris and Claire? Leon and Wesker? The only person who appeared in the movie that was in the games was Carlos Olivera, and he wasn't even a main character in the game! Hitman got it right but wasn't that good. Final Fantasy: Advent children was on the money but wasn't THAT good of a movie (great fight scenes though). The mortal kombat series was ok, the first one was good but the second not great. Wing Commander was terrible but somewhat related to the game (same characters, same basic principle). And now we have Max Payne, a game about drugs and the mafia with only text based allusions to norse mythology. The game features a drug called Valkyr... a drug. Guess what the movie is about? ACTUAL VALKYRES! That's right, the norse creatures who carried the souls of fallen heroes into Valhalla. The whole thing is this Constantine-esqe plot. What the hell is so hard about making movies out of games, the skeletons of the plots are already written for heavens sake! I know I know, nobody wants the movie to be exactly the same as the game but come on, theres a difference between artistic license and just putting a well known name to a completely unrelated movie! It's infuriating! I swear to god, if the ruin Devil May Cry, Tekken or Metal Gear Solid (all of which have been anounced) I'm going to snap and kill some hollywood producer anus. P.S. Anyone ever play broken sword: shadow of the templar? I heard they're making a movie of that, that'd be great!
