Could 'Assassin's Creed' Be The First Good Video Game Movie?

Some suggestions to prevent 'Assassin's Creed' going the same way as all video game movies. (Assassin's Creed, Dev, Industry, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Resident Evil probably, but Wreck It Ralph is not really based on a computer game and rather an original story in a computergame based setting .. but it was a good movie .. :)

Dear god, you consider Mortal Kombat and Silent Hill good movies? Were you also a fan of the Street Fighter movie?
Venox2008  +   784d ago
no, other movies based on games were bad, I liked only those I wrote

Um, there have been a few good ones already. Silent Hill, Postal, Resident Evil one was decent although really had nothing to do with the game, and also Forward unto Dawn was excellent but I'm not sure if that truly counts.

Add Prince of Persia. I think it was very good and remained true to the franchise!

The Uncharted movie could be excellent.

I doubt that will even happen, it's been talked about for years and nothing has happened.

I still think Sony were wrong to drop David O'Russell, just to please fanboys.

He's a top directer (despite his unconventional take on the Uncharted franchise), hell he even had Robert De Niro attached. But instead he went on to direct the Oscar winning Silver Lining Playbook. Oh well, another missed opportunity due to internet whinging...and now the film is stuck in-development hell.

Street Fighter: The Animated Movie was superb. You can tell this is written by a 16 year old too young to remember.

I doubt it'll be any good. Unless the situation has changed, Ubisoft are producing it themselves and although I know they're doing it to keep it close to the games and to maintain creative control, they're not movie producers and I doubt they'll be able to translate Assassin's Creed that well into this medium.

Would Forward into dawn count? I just watched that today and I thought it was really freakin good.

1. As said above, it wouldn't be the first.
2. The series' aim is too casual/blockbuster. Expect a non-sense half-finished story (as the game's), a typical hollywood teenager movie.
3. The game itself is not even that good anymore. Another downhill ultra repetitive dumbed franchise, heavily reliant on marketing.

It wouldn't be anything special. Just another flashy blockbuster with roughly the same quality as the Prince of Persia movie.

Ya see the only reason the games seems special is BECAUSE they're games. The moment they become a film = mediocrity. None of the games we play are actually well written, they're just helped a lot by the gameplay aspect.

I'm sure it'd be loaded with that 300 style slo-mo killing too, because killing people is really cool and everything /sarcasm.
