The 10 worst and least worst video games movies

RB writes: Ultimately, games are not films and films are not games. One is not better or more important that the other. They're just different forms of entertainment, and what we love about the interactive thrill of a story-driven game is worlds apart from the passive joy of a great movie.

But still the crossover casualties pile up. And, if for nothing else but the law of averages, there has to be a good one eventually, right? Which is why the news that man of the moment, the brilliant Michael Fassbender, is to star in - and co-produce - the forthcoming adaptation of assassin's creed offers a glimmer of a smidgen of hope of something that might actually be genuinely, gloriously, unapologetically 'not bad'. Dare to dream.

And in the meantime, let's remind ourselves of what we've had to put up with 'til now. (Culture, Doom, Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil, Tomb Raider)

What about hitman?It was okay but not to great.

I'm not gonna lie, I really love the Mortal Kombat movie...in a cheesy 90s sort of way.

It's a shame the sequel sucked so badly though. :(

It was a good film! lol I used to love the scorpion battle scene when I was a kid! was so cool.

I remember how ridiculously excited I was when I first watched the movie and Scorpion said "GET OVER HERE!" in his actual voice from the game! :D

Haha I know what you mean! and when he warped Johnny Cage into his hell stage and was like GET DOWN HERE! used to think it was so awesome lol.
Even as a kid though I thought the sequel sucked big time :(

mk was really good and they were faithful on the video game,, everything was really good, the fighting, plot, actors, etc. they really made mk fans happy but yes, the sequel was so terrible and the poster had a warning because the posters catch phrase was "destroy all expectations" lol and it really did destroy!

Tomb Raider and Silent Hill are my favourites. However, I do like the Resi films even though they aren't really based on the games.

they should have included silent hill, it was one of the good videogame-movie adaptation.

The first Mortal Kombat movie was really good cause it followed the storyline as close as possible & remained true to the source material.

I enjoyed the Silent Hill film for it also was pretty close to the source material, rather than having the father looking for the daughter i liked that it showed a strong female lead character. I would have liked that they did not show Pyramid Head cause it is a personafication of Jame's jealousy & sexual frustrations rather than just some evil being.
