Good video game adaption
Probably the best game to film adaptation so far. Really keeps the feel of the game with flashy graphic scenes just like playing the game. The charaters are true to the game and the fights very impressive. Complete with the sexy female charaters and it couldn't be any more like the game.

First Person Video Game
People forgot that hardcore henry was not the first, first person movie. It seems like people were like oh my god hardcore henry was this first person film, and its the first one and its shot like a video game and your in the charcters shoes.

Crank came out many years before hardcore henry and was a first person film, your in cranks shoes and it is shot like a video game, it is basically a video game. The plot even sounds like a video game.

The plot: Chev Chelios (Jason Statham), a hit man wanting to go straight, lets his latest target slip away, then he awakes the next morning to a phone call that informs him he has been poisoned and has only an hour to live unless he keeps adrenaline coursing through his body while he searches for an antidote.

This film and its sequel i would highly reccordmend, not alot of people talk about these films.

It has action, drama, susepense, comedy, adventure. Hardcore henry is a copy and paste movie minus the everything that crank had.

Dont watch hardcore henry, watch this movie instead.

Brilliant SFX
Live action GTA
A real blast of a film with so much going on. I saw a trailer a long way back and thought it could be fun, but didn't expect such a blockbuster film.
It's a real mix of Ready Player One meets the The Truman Show. A non playable Character in a game suddenly becomes alive and decides to make his own decisions after encountering a player in the game.
The film is funny and will be especially fun for those who do play video games. Feeling like a real life version of a GTA game. The SFX to recreate so much crazy video game action in real life is great.
Definitely an enjoyable film worth seeing at the cinema and one I can imagine watching multiple times in future.

Great Pop culture Sci-fi film
I had no idea this was based on a book so can't compare it. The trailer hooked me as I've been a gamer for a long while and obvious a big film fan. Part of the fun of this film is spotting all the characters from games and film included in it, many blink and you'll miss it moments. Surprised at the amount of horror film references as well but a bonus for someone like me.
The action and visuals are great, although at times for long periods it feels like watching a video game. The story is actually fairly basic and similar in plot to many films. Overall a very enjoyable film especially if you grew up in the 80's, if not actually ground breaking.

A decent entertaining action film based on the 2nd Prince of Persia video game. Not played the game but it seems the main elements and plot to the game made it into the film alright. This has a good cast, pretty good CGI and produced by Walt Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer! So not too bad, pity didn't get a cinema release. If you liked films along the lines of The Mummy, Scorpion King you will enjoy this.

I had high hopes for a more serious Independence day type alien invasion film. This is more like an urban war film that had more in common with a call of duty type video game. The effects are ok, not wowed by the alien design to be honest. It has a good cast who do their best to fight aliens that aren't there, and working with green screens etc. An ok war film, a disappointing alien film.

Poke-tastic!
The only good film based on a game, ever! Both fun and a little crazy, if is good because it does not take itself too seriously. Ryan Reynolds once again stealing the show, a perfect casting and brings is own wit tho the picture.
Making a live action Pokemon film was going to be a challenge, but they have done a great job, from showing the world of life with Pokemon, to the more realistic looking pokemon, all in a gritty mondern film noir style setting.
It is just nerdy enough to keep fans happy, and has enough Reynolds and jokes to keep everyone else on their seats.
A great film, and lovely to see something that is not a sequel or a remake. It certainly is working hard to be the very best, like no video game film ever was.

All style and no substance
Another film that is struck down by the video game to big screen curse. Despite the budget, great cast and good special effects I just found the story uninteresting. I've not played the games, so can't comment how true to them it is. Shame as it had great potential. A nice looking film but without any depth to it.
