|I've seen quite a few video-game-to-movie translations... Doom, Tomb Raider 1&2, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, Super Mario Brothers, and Wing Commander to name a few. |
I can honestly say the only one that I honestly really liked was the original Mortal Kombat. Plot-wise, I thought it followed the game pretty well. The characters were well represented and the costume design was very good. I also loved the soundtrack.
The Tomb Raiders weren't bad. Doom and Street Fighter were awful. I agree with the other poster, how can you not have Hell represented? I mean, they showed Zombies, Imps, 1 (!) pinky demon, and a Hell Knight. Where are all the cool monsters from Doom? Not to mention the original weak (but lovable) plot? Bah.
Unless you have a concept for a grand game (a la Halo), stay away!
Oh yeah, speaking of sequels, don't be suprised if another Doom movie comes around. I heard Karl Urban was signed to a two-movie deal.
