The thing is that video games have become so much more a part of a culture than when we were young and they were just being developed. Now that we can have a game where a majority of the population is going to know the basic premise behind, we're just going to keep seeing more and more because they're an easy payday. While they've yet to make a decent video game-to-movie, think of the even worse movie-to-video game transition. I know we're all itchin to play the new Up game, right? They apparently must make a buck or two somewhere, because almost every semi-action related or animated movie gets a game these days.

Some video games based on movies are okay, depending on who the developers and publishers are. The Warriors game was published by Rockstar (same people who made the Grand Theft Auto series) and it was generally reviewed pretty well.

A lot of games these days make their money off licensing, making a game out of a movie that's being currently released. Like ded Grimley mentioned, they'll only make games based on movies that are box office hits. Since Hollywood is too afraid to take risks on original ideas. Just like all these stupid remakes they make.

"Woody Allen, whatever his failings, does not make movies for morons. Most directors do. Of course, most directors are morons."

There IS a desperate need for a C Me Dance game. It would be like DDR, but you need to solve a series of puzzles while dancing in order to defeat that tricky Satan fellow.

No bad movie is worth sitting through just to look at a pretty face. There are other oulets for that sort of thing ... it's called porn.

That's true.After all,I doubt they appear naked in the movie,right?

Still,it seems like an O.K. action flick.

Nah, it's not. Stick with the "Die Hard" or "Bourne" movies instead ... GOOD action flicks. That's the problem with movie goers nowadays, they settle for "okay" movies.

I'm not settling with anything.

If I go to see a movie,and I have to choose only one in the list,I'll choose the most appealing.

This isn't that appealin'for me,so I'm pre-callin'it "O.K.".But I'll watch it with an open mind.Therefor,it can be good,bad or average.Because of reviews and audiences's comments,it will most likely be bad.I'll take my chances.

Anyway,can anyone(not just B.H.B.,who seems to be the only one replyin'my posts)tell me what's wrong with the movie,without spoilers?

Well, I'll tell you anyway. It's not loyal to the video game. There's winged demons and stuff, which are not in the game. The movie also tries too hard to be like the "Bourne" movies. In the end, the movies comes across as a mix of undercover cop, action, and slight fantasy, and it doesn't mix well. That and it's your usual Marky Mark going around looking all angry, and cute little Mila trying to pass as a hitwoman, which she doesn't because she's too cute looking.

This was the worst action movie I've ever seen.
 
I've never played the video game.And I don't need to.Even if it was 100% similar,the movie would still be bad.
 
It was THE PUNISHER with a better crafted evil plan,but less entertaining action sequences.
 
Mark Wahlberg deserves the nomination.Nelly Furtado appeared for 30 seconds,and she delivers the best performance of the movie.I'm not joking.She has potential.
 
There was no conflict with MAX's moral issues.Actually,MAX had no inner conflicts at all.
 
The slow-motion is an amateur technique and it's presented like we're supposed to be dazzled by it.

And it's really sad when Nelly Furtado appearing for 30 seconds is the best performance in the movie!
