I haven't seen either movie. But given his success, I can only guess that the movie will be legit good. This movie and possibly Ratchet and Clank (which looks legit good) and hopefully Assassin's Creed with Michael Fassbender will usher in a new era of movies based on video games... and I mean an era of good movies.

Are there any examples of good films based off of videogames already out? The only thing that comes to mind is eXistenz, and that's about a fictional videogame, so that doesn't count.

Well, I liked Prince of Persia. But the common thing is that movies based on video games generally tend to suck in the eyes of critics. Highest rated one is Prince of Persia, with 35% on RT, unless you count Final Fantasy the Spirits Within which isn't based on any game but is something a bit different (44% on RT). I hope that changes.

Why do you hope that changes?

I also hope it'll change and we get some good video game movies.
There are some cool game worlds I'd like to see explored in a non-****ty way.

Aren't they already explored in a non-shitty way in their respective video games though? I feel like a movie of a game with a cool world is always going to suffer from the fact that you won't get that experience of exploring the world that you do in the game.

Well people tend to get different things from different types of media, so that's not the fairest way to judge a film (even though you have to compare the two on some level).

I'm not much of a gamer, but I am a huge movie buff, so for me personally a good adaptation would be more interesting than the game it's based on.
