The 10 Most Horrible Movies Based on Video Games

The Last of Usthe HBO series which adapts the Naughty Dog video game, has broken all records on Rotten Tomatoes as the best adaptation of a video game to the audiovisual medium. However, this has not been like that. If the adaptations of video games to the big (or small) screen are famous for something, it is for its poor qualityespecially in its early days, because of terrible CGI.

There are some, in fact, that have a bad public opinion but I did like them, as is the case of silent hill or the main saga of resident Evil. But perhaps they speak ill of them because they don’t remember how horrible many others were. So, to refresh your memory, I have prepared a Top 10 of the worst movies based on video games.

I was 14 when this movie came out. I had played Double Dragon at my neighborhood arcade, so I was very excited to see the movie. Unfortunately, the story and action were bland , and it did not sit well on the charts or with critics. It’s one of my least favorite Mark Dacascos movies.

Although Mark Wahlberg seems to me a spectacular actor, it is clear that he could not save this film. He mimicked the action and effects of the Matrix, but the story just didn’t quite work. In addition, they decided to add some supernatural elements They had nothing to do with the plot of the game. They were probably trying to cash in on the popular fantasy movies of the time, like Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings. But it was a bad idea.

hit man: Agent 47 (2015)

I’ve seen a lot of people say that Timothy Olifant’s first Hitman is one of the worst movies based on video games, and I don’t agree. In any case, it would be on my favorites list. As for the sequel, I tried to watch it several times with the same enthusiasm and couldn’t. Simply could not live up to expectations .

It was one of the first adaptations of video game movies, and the result did not convince anyone. was missing Colour everywhere, and I’m not sure if it’s due to its low budget. The film was not only not well received, but suffered a financial loss due to a general lack of interest.

There are several ingredients that make this movie a lousy adaptation. For one thing, the actors weren’t up to the task, lending a bland delivery to the screen. Also, the story didn’t quite match the game’s plot, something that seems to happen quite often with adaptations. The enemies look terrible, but I guess we can skip that part. The antagonists shouldn’t look pretty, right?

I am a Mortal Kombat POSTER fan. I played the first game when it was brought to my neighborhood arcade, and then every title that has come out of MK since. I live and breathe his story in my soul. Unfortunately, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation sucked my soul like Shang Tsung feasting on the spirit of Lui Kang while watching Goro defeat any of Earth’s champions. He was just terrible and didn’t do the games justice. Of course, Christopher Lambert is the best Raidan of all time.

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li (2009)

I was also a fan of the Street Fighter games, but not as much as MK. I loved the first movie, but I couldn’t finish Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li. The only reason I really tried it was because of my famous crush on Smallville actress Kristin Kreuk. As much as I enjoyed watching her on the screen, the history leaked everywhere.

Another actress that drives me crazy and is often in video game adaptations is Kristanna Loken. She appeared in the Mortal Kombat Conquest series, of which I still have the original game on DVD. While there is one really sexy scene in BloodRayne, that’s all she’s got. Although there were sequels, none lived up to the game.

House of the Dead was a hit at my neighborhood arcade. Everyone loved having a chance (pun intended) to kill enemies. As for the movie, the director did a great job killing him with horrible actors and a poor script that made me snore through most of the footage.

Although the first Alone in the Dark game came out before Silent Hill, I always thought it was the other way around. It’s mainly because I discovered the latter before the former. Be that as it may, the movie was anything but stellar, and the game developer wanted nothing to do with it. If only it had as much suspense as the games…
