Video Game Movies that defy the curse...

Mine would have to be...

1. Max Payne...
it was bearable and not cheesy whether you think its a good movie or not.

2. Mortal Kombat...
now it was cheesy but in a good way.

3. Silent Hill

4. ???
what do you think?

some would say Resident Evil...but i hate that they aren't horror movies like they should be. they made them into stupid sci-fi, action, pg13 pieces of crap.

I'm hoping Tekken, Metal Gear Solid, or Halo at least will make it to the list.

1. Resident Evil
2. Silent Hill
3. DOA
4. Mortal Kombat
5. Hitman

Those aren't based on how close the movies follow the game, but, how much I enjoyed them.

Cassidy-OhMyGod, It's Megan!(her dead corpse in the shower.)
Jessica-Oh God, she looks terrible.


Resident Evil (not much of a fan but it did well enough for a trilogy)
Mortal Kombat 1 was great

KOF is going to suck because it has the same exact plot as MK and movie goers will see that. i hope the people responsible are brought to trial for plagerism


1.Max Payne
2.Mortal Kombat
3.Silent Hill
4.I dunno... Hitman??


Anyway, the Street fighter II Animated version was exceptionally good (despite being an anime), Street Fighter II V is cool too. And the Virtua Fighter TV series is in my opinion the best video game-based series (but not film).
King of fighters has too many characters to represent, and the more popular characters are horribly miscast. Even worse, Mai's portrayed by a flat chested woman. I think the only good thing this movie will have is the lack of Athena's horribly annoying voice.

A voluptuous Mai could have saved this movie big time.
