Has no game studio learned from Squaresoft`s epic blunder that was Final Fantasy The Spirits Within. That movie went $50 million over budget and so ended up costing $125 million to make, thats more than it cost to make Star Wars EP1. Squaresoft didnt even manage to make a 5th back on that film & thus this spelt the end of Squaresoft :(

These kind of movies are expensive to make and considered by the mainstream movie goer to be too cartoony to be interested in. Movies like Shrek & Finding Nemo are accepted but game>movie are not, there just to much like the Saturday morning cartoons.

Squeenix also made Final Fantasy VII Advent Children which again IMO was a waste of time and money, you watch it once for 90 minutes and thats it. I can only imagine wat kind of great game we could have had for that time & money spend. I would have rather seen a game sequel to VII than a 90 min movie.

As for the quality of this movie, we will have to wait and see.
But I have a feeling this will be a good entertainment movie. It might not be 5 stars but I reckon 3 and a half should be achievable.

If anything, it might end up like Beowulf. Great CGI, emotionless characters but still fun for a night nevertheless.

capcom didn't spend that kind of cash on this movie not to mention this is a straight to dvd movie its not coming out in theaters they are gonna end up getting back what they spent on this movie and then some

Where does it say that i said this movie did cost much as FFTSW.

The point i am making is i would rather see the money spend on a game that we can enjoy for weeks even months than on a 90 min movie.

STFU guys he was talking about these types of movies in general... nob heads

anyway FF7 advent children sucked... I hope this does better... FF7 advent children basically pissed on the FF7 franchise

It's probably not going to be good but I'm sure it will be far better than any of the live action films. With an animated installment they can stay as close to the original storyline as they want, creep mansion and all.

Blu-ray version here I come. I'll be sure to catch it for the new release sale. Leon Kennedy ftw.

I'll be getting this. Even though it will be $40. OUCH!! And Right after Xmas, when I'm all broke. I love Resident Evil.

In lots of cases (in the US anyway, don't know about other areas), DVDs/BRs are sold at a sale price for the first week of release. Might be about 5-10 bucks cheaper if you get it then. There always Amazon too.

I'll rent it before playing Resident evil 5.
