Due to the excellent martial-arts combat and engaging crime drama, The Karachiite feels that 'Sleeping Dogs' makes a good contender for a film adaptation. Would you agree?
Man I am so hooked to the definitive edition on the PS4. The more I play it I wish it could become a film. It clearly has everything for a kickass action thriller.
Yeah you said that in the article, I can read you know Watchdogs sucked, what little I played of it anyway, and a movie would be even worse, Hollywood can't even make a good movie based on a good videogame, what makes you think they can make a bad game into a good movie?
Watch dogs did not suck
i meant Sleeping Dogs..not Watchdogs!
Sleeping Dogs? hmmmm, think I may of made a mistake, I played Sleeping Dogs, it was alright, didn't finish it though, some of it was fun My apologizes, I'd rather play/watch Sleeping Dogs than Watch Dogs
its all good man! I find it better than watchdogs and rate it very closely to GTA V. the combat mechanics are the selling point.
Watch Dogs sucks. Rather see MGS film or something.
its Sleeping Dogs, not Watchdogs. on that note, Watchdogs is not that bad but there were too many expectations. open world games can tend to be repetitive.
Cuz Hollywood makes so many martial arts crime dramas.
Sleeping Dogs was heavily influenced by Hong Kong cinema. It'd feel a bit odd to see a Hollywood movie based on a video game influenced by Hong Kong cinema.
They already made 2 movies that are kinda like Sleeping Dogs. Watch The Raid: Redemption and The Raid: Berandal (sequel, its even more like sleeping dogs) They are Indonesian films but dont let that scare you. Brutal martial arts, intense action, characters you care about and great stories. Movies were very well done. Make sure you watch the subtitled versions. Hated the idiots they hired for the English voiceovers.
many popular asian flicks get a western remake.ex.. inferno affairs to the Departed.. just saying. a hollywood sleepy dog movie would be western theme? that wouldnt be bad either
definitely bot a good idea and its definitely not something easy to pull off. name me 5 chinese actors that has been in hollywood movies. if you were struggling to think of 5, now try to feel the whole cast and then you will understand how hard it is to pull off.
Good luck getting it off the ground, films like Uncharted, God of War, Assassin's Creed have been announced years ago and nothing has come of it. Although World of Warcraft is finished, and we did have Need for Speed and Prince of Persia, so once we finally get a good video game adaptation, thats when the suits in Hollywood will start scrambling to buy up video game licenses, and end up becoming the new Comic Book Movies.
Good point superhero movies werent nearly as popular until Spider Man came out. Yes there were good movies before it but Spider Man kicked it into overdrive. Hopefully WOW or Assassins Creed are well made and we can see more video game movies in the future. Would be nice to see some of our favorite games on the big screen with the care and attention to detail they deserve while not straying too far from the games.
WoW sounds like an epic of LotR proportions, and with Michael Fassbender backing AC, there's hope for those films.
It wont be the same without Wei and his dreamy voice.
Look at the live action trailer or this fan made project https://www.youtube.com/wat... and tell me you wouldn't want to see a movie made like that.
