Done by some German Director who also did Blood Rayne and Postal and I think Farcry as well. From what I have seen I guess that the special effects will be good but the rest of the movie will be shit from previous experience.

Uwe Boll (these are the movies he has done since starting to convert games to movies).

Uwe Boll is something of a legend, for all the wrong reasons.

Uwe Boll is a ****tard. (worse than a smacktard)

Not sure why studios continue to throw money at this crap director. All he does is completely destroy gaming IP's.

Some show on the Reels network had videocam reviews by "the mob". Almost every one of those people said this was the worst movie they'd ever seen. Several just walked out of the theater and another fell asleep.

BTW...the teaser trailer for this movie was out over a year ago.

Just found this interesting little article today:


Has Uwe Boll Directed His Final Big-Budget Flop?


There may actually BE a god!

I suspect Uwe is sincere (read = deliberate) when he creates his garbage. Exploiting the German lax laws for Germany owned/produced film makers allowing a 100% write off on their investment, providing Uwe doesn't make any profit.

Surely he's lining his own pockets through all this some how.

Games should not be made into movies. The other way around, maybe, if it's a genre defining movie or something really special and you have a studio with a vested interest in staying true to the franchise involved (like lucasarts).
