For me,I simply chose 2

1. Street Fighter(it's gotta be in the 90's)

2. MORTAL KOMBAT

Ummm TC, I am pretty sure Tron was not based on any existing video game....

As for the question, Silent Hill is hands down the best video-game based movie I have seen, even if it was quite flawed. The whole air-raid siren touch that they put into the movie was just awesome. I still remember being in awe when that siren went off and the screen went black.

The original Mortal Kombat movie was pretty badass, and if you are looking for an awesomely cheesey movie Street Fighter is the way to go! Raul Julia was at least pretty damn awesome as Bison in that movie! Sad he passed away after that movie when he was so young...

Probably Mortal Kombat. Cant really think of any other one that was actually decent..

My vote also goes to Silent Hill. Great movie with a haunting ending.

The finale is pretty damn brutal and EPIC!!!

too bad the sequel was utter crap.

TOPIC: 1st resident evil

Tomb Raider, though the movies sucked.

Only 4 movies based on Videogames are in my opinion Decent/Good, and ironically they are the first ones in the movie series with one exception.

Resident Evil

Silent Hill

Tomb Raider and Tomb Raider 2

Resident Evil: Apocalypse. Loved how they copied RE3's intro.

The Original Silent Hill. Movies based on games we all know, are bad.

Silent Hill (the first one) felt like the game, captured a fair bit of it's atmosphere and did a pretty good job of fleshing out it's premise but I would of preferred it to of kept things as vague as the game, it's part the mystery of Silent Hill and part of the debate and theories that made the franchise work in the past.

I sometimes think that's where the games been going wrong as of late.

I can't think of any other game move I enjoyed. Hate Resident Evils although I can understand the directors approach, silly OTT action is pretty much what Resident Evil is when you look at the games.

Tomb Raider is the only one that was remotely good. MK was ok when i was younger

This is like asking which pile of poop is the least stinky. Tron doesn't count since it wasn't based on any existing game (although there are several games based on the film franchise).

#14 Posted by Smashbrossive50 (2882 posts) -

Never really got myself into RE, only because of that laser scene in the first movie is the worst part of them all,after the first crap,I would definitely enjoy it better

God you suck. > 10,000 posts consisting purely of pedantic garbage.

This is going to be a clique, but Mortal Kombat. I mean the goals of that film were so low, it sort of executed all of them. Mortal Kombat characters? Check! Fight scenes? Check! Plot? No... it should have one? Nop... It's fun, and at this point that's the best thing you can say about a videogame adaption.

None(?)

#21 Posted by Flubbbs (2969 posts) -

Mortal Kombat with the worst being either Super Mario Bros. or House of the Dead.. just terrible

#22 Posted by PrincessGomez92 (3479 posts) -

DOA: Dead or Alive. Absolutely love that movie.

#23 Posted by sukraj (22133 posts) -

None

I have never played Silent Hill, but I thoroughly enjoyed the movie.

I can't think of any other decent examples sadly.

#26 Edited by CleanPlayer (9787 posts) -

I don't care what anyone says Mortal Kombat was epic! That theme song gives me too much adrenaline! I also dig the Resident Evil 1 movie because of the laser beam scene. Honestly, the movie I liked the most that had videogame nostalgia in it was Wreck-It Ralph, totally recommend that one

#27 Edited by ShadowsDemon (10127 posts) -

Silent Hill probably.

this joke will never get old

Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete is the best one. it's more a sequel than an adaptation, though.

I thought Prince of Persia: the Sands of Time was decent, so I'll go with that one as option B

Need for Speed the movie ? I would have liked it more if they had known actors ? But i'll still watch it, might be good !

Resident Evil, Hitman, Silent Hill, Tomb Raider, and Super Mario Bros.

#31 Posted by wolverine4262 (19050 posts) -

Mortal Kombat!

Also, Tron is not even a proper choice, tc.

#32 Posted by destinhpark (4700 posts) -

I love the Silent Hill films.

#33 Edited by tocool340 (20487 posts) -

Resident Evil (First 3 movies at least) and Final Fantasy VII Advent Children Complete were my favorites, with FFVII being the better of the two...

#34 Posted by benleslie5 (7773 posts) -

Final Fantasy VII Advent Children

#35 Posted by XenoLair (4755 posts) -

Far Cry :D Remember that part with the sandwich? HAHA!

But seriously, probably Tomb Raider for me. Never watched any Silent Hill or Resident Evil movies but I think I should...

I guess we're all waiting for that Warcraft movie to be the one.

#36 Posted by thegerg (14859 posts) -

Aren't they making a Halo movie? I vote for that one too.

#37 Edited by one_plum (6347 posts) -

Mortal Kombat is the embodiment of everything I love about the 90s; something that any future Mortal Kombat movie (or video game movie) would not be able to offer.

Loved the setting and atmosphere from Silent Hill. I felt like I was watching more than just a movie.

It was going to be made, but it became District 9 instead. In all honesty I think it turned out for the better, as much as I love Halo...

#39 Posted by Large_Soda (8609 posts) -

Super Mario Bros for sure. That is definitely the best game to then be turned into a movie. The movie however, was terrible.

#40 Posted by -ParaNormaN- (763 posts) -

Resident Evil Damnation was pretty damn good. Beat the live action movies and Degeneration by a lot. Silent Hill and MK are the only live action game movies I liked and FFVII Advent Children.

#41 Posted by caseystryker (5405 posts) -

Anyone remember the old Mortal Kombat TV series from the 90's? I thought they were great when i was a kid. Better than any video game based movie.

Okay, Scorpion jumping out of the way at the :47 mark is HILARIOUS!

#43 Posted by adrianjarca (63 posts) -

Silent Hill. Absolutely fantastic movie, if a bit limited in scope due t the source material.

Dead or Alive was...stimulating and entertaining.

Mortal Kombat was ok, but only because it didn't pretend to be something it isn't. It knew it was corny B-rate flick and it reveled it in that knowledge.

#44 Posted by LittleMac19 (1638 posts) -

Mortal Kombat, saw it as a child back in the 90s and thought it was great, still do as a matter of fact.

#46 Posted by Crunchy_Nuts (2749 posts) -

Have to Agree with the people who say Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children Complete. The only other acceptable game>movie was Prince of Persia.

LOL, I never noticed how bad that was till you pointed it out. Wow, guess it was cancelled for a reason.

Every film made by the great Uwe Boll are magna opera.

Hate me.

Tron doesn't count...really?!

Nobody here ever played the Tron arcade game (coin operated) back in the 80's? I pumped a lot of quarters into that machine. Maybe I'm just too old...

Yep. I remember a couple days after seeing the movie, I was in a rural town that had the exact same siren to announce 12:00. I started losing my shit.
