Please for the love of all that is good and just in the world...STOP IT WITH THESE VIDEO GAME MOVIES!! They just don't work!! Heck even the beloved story of "Max Payne" couldn't save the movie from mediocrity...

Are you guys really fresh out of ideas that you have to grab games with almost non-existent story lines and turning them into horrible movies whose only draw was that is derived from a rather average shooting game??

But now this is making me curious on how they'll handle the rather "gay" undertones that were in the game... ::points at Yahtzee's Zero Punctuation review::
