A list of the ten worst movies based on video games.
Mortal Kombat doesn't really belong here. I actually liked that movie.
but others says otherwise.
I also enjoyed the first Mortal Kombat, along with the first Tomb Raider and Resident Evil movies. They were no masterpieces... I wouldn't even say they were good, just good enough to be entertaining. And sometimes that's all I expect from a movie: to be entertained and not having to think or give a meaning to what I just watched. Doom was also interesting in a "so bad that it's good" kind of way. Most of all, this list needs more Uwe Boll. Alone in the Dark anyone?
BOTH mortal kombat movies were watchable at the least...i've seen both of them multiple times. they should not be on this list. there has to be worse. MAX PAYNE!!! BLOODRAYNE!!!
Was far worse than any on this list except for Mario Brothers.
Funny list. "Though I agree John Leguizamo sort of looks likes Luigi, I don’t think many people would agree he knocked anything out of the park on this one" LOL
Butthole lips as Lara Croft. Ya, that was awful
Ha. Awful movie. Actually didn't mind the Mario Bros. one though
This article was TOOOOOOOOO SWEET! I especially liked the part about Wing Commander when he says "I know what you’re thinking, how can you go wrong with Freddie Prince Jr.? "
LMFAO! haha. Yeah.
Another list...oh boy...
Lists are fun, dude. Especially when they make fun of Street Fighter the movie. Van Damme sucks. Also, did you hear how he turned down a spot on the Expendables because of his artistic integrity?
Artistic integrity LMAO. Steven Segal and Chuck Norris also turned down the offer.
van dam-"my name is guile, and i'm an american" and he's got a french accent lol.
Bison: For you, the day Bison graced your village was the most important day of your life. But for me... it was Tuesday. Bison: But why? Why do they still call me a warlord? And mad? All I want to do is to create the perfect genetic soldier. Not for power, not for evil... but for 'good'! Bison: I hoped to face Guile face-to-face on the battlefield, where we could engage each other in respectful combat. Then... I would snap his spine. lol poor Raul Julia. This was his last film right? What a way to be remembered.
what a crap list just look @ uwe bolls imdb Bloodrayne: The Third Reich (2010) (post-production) Far Cry (2008) BloodRayne: Deliverance (2007) (V) Postal (2007) In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale (2007) BloodRayne (2005) Alone in the Dark (2005) House of the Dead (2003)
I can't believe there was a movie for Alone in the Dark. I can imagine it being bad.
Bad is an understatement, Christian Slater and Tara Reid are the stars and share a love interest..that alone is more than enough to make you sick.
In the name of the king IS the worst film ever made.
Alone In The Dark as a series isn't bad. Why put it down just because of one flaky little game? I can understand you criticizing the movie, I hate it too. But you seriously can't believe the games are bad. First game had a better story all around. Rest of the sequels had stories on par with RE games.
Far Cry is so bad it's funny. Had me and my buddies howling for how shit it was.
This list was HILARIOUS. Gotta read it to appreciate it.
MK and tomb raider are not bad movies, liked both
yeah both were entertaining enought for me.And the Resident Evil ones are pretty much in the same league.
am i the only one who loves the first RE movie?
I enjoyed the first. Not so much on the others.
Awesome movie, IMO. :)
Cool article. I've never seen the Mario Brothers movie but want to see it after reading the blurb. LOL
Alyssa Malano in any movie is good. I don't care how bad Double Dragon was
Hm, intersting. I actually liked Tomb Raider, Double Dragon and MK (The first movie).
The first Resident Evil was pretty decent and Mortal Kombat was good who put that in there?
Mortal Kombat was an awful movie
the first mortal kombat movie was decent for what it was, the 2nd one is complete shit though.
Tomb Raider was one of the few good ones. I really enjoyed that movie.
Without Jolie, what would Tomb Raider be?
i love tekken...but the movie belongs here RE wasnt bad at all,i enjoyed every one of the trilogy and cant wait for afterlife :D
Not awesome movies, but still enjoyable to watch. There is one thing that bugs me about them, the lack of important characters from the games appearing in the films.
This list fails. I would put Max Payne there. its plain awfull and not entertaining at all.
nothing like street fighter at all and dooom was also terriable
While the Wing Commander movie sucked, I do not agree with the author saying the game sucked, too. Well for him, maybe, but Wing Commander, more particularly Wing Commander 2, made Sound Blaster a household name for PC's.
not the first one anyway. You can substitute it with Alone In The Dark by Uwe Boll, thanks you dummy for ruining my one chance to see my favorite game series on big screen. The game series is fine, well first few titles, anyone who disagrees really needs to get their head out of the water. Alone In The Dark paved the way for future 3D survival horror genre, such as Resident Evil. The first game had such a good storyline, even Boll couldn't have messed that up if he followed it. Or wait, maybe he could have. O and first RE is a good movie, I don't know what happened with the sequels. I honestly can't imagine how anyone could have penciled those awful scripts for the rest.
The original Tomb Raider was more than just a game made by horny guys. It's one of the first third person action adventure/puzzle solving games ever! Prince of Persia Sands of Time, God of War. All owe a lot to the original Tomb Raider. It showed them the blueprint on how to make a third person style game with exploration, moving blocks and pulling levers to solves puzzles. It never gets any credit. Either it's overshadowed by Mario64 or the fact the lead character had T&A. It really deserves more credit. It's sad how people in industry treat it's legacy.
he wasnt saying the game was bad...but the movie based on it sucked
As bad as Super Mario Brothers was, I think Doom was worse.
Alone in the Dark and The Legend of Chun Li are two of the worst movies I've seen in my life. I loved Mortal Kombat and All three Resident Evil movies.
a list of the ten worst video game movies and only two of them are uwe boll movies? who wrote that list? where's bloodrayne? where's alone in the dark? where's far cry? where's postal? although, that one is apparently funny so maybe they didn't choose that one deliberately. and mortal kombat, resident evil and tomb raider were all successful enough to get a sequel, the fourth resident evil is on the verge of being released, and there is already talk of a fifth.
You just don't get it ;)
