“Just Cause” is the latest video game getting the movie treatment. The film will follow Rico Rodriguez (aka “The Scorpion”) on a race-against-time mission to stop the lethal mercenary group the Black Hand.
No doubt that this will be terrible, like almost every video game movie ever made.
As long as it's super campy and they nail the casting on Rico and how suave he is then it could be good but saying the writer of John Wick doesn't give me much faith.
loool....I don't think we need the writer, the director is the one we need.
Considering how horrible the plot of the Just Cause games are, this is probably one of the worst game franchises to do a movie on.
'John Wick' movie getting video game adaption from Just Cause developers would be a far more interesting proposition. This however sounds horrible.
Movies based on video games sort of get a bad rap That's only because most movies adapted from a game is not granted the huge funding that comic book companies are enjoying right now..... Just Cause movie could suffer from comparisons of movies that had big actions sequences with a main character that has charm could be difficult to make (Feel like a John Wick film with the main character personality change and more destruction). Most notable movies that could also be compared to is Die Hard if the setting is limited to location in the film or if a broader more travel like experience is used could be compared to Mission Impossible movies or perhaps the last couple Bond Movies........ Hey the director/producer has been successful in the past it may be great....... However, if they want it to succeed in the big screen CGI better be top notch and movie needs to film like they spent as much as any Big Budget film. Oh and it doesn't need to feel like a video game just make it feel completely believable even if what is happening is virtually impossible........ Go Big or go Home!!!! No exceptions in a Just Cause Movie adaptation
