    What about Tekken the 2009 movie? That adaptation made Nina Williams (the Queen of Tekken) look like a pornstar. The Legend of Chun-li was much more redeeming than Tekken the movie.

    Well, Resident Evil movies are enjoyable if it's not source material. But Tomb Raider 2018 is by far the worst game adaption from that year. And the German director cannot direct the video game movies correctly. Great vid.

    Is it a title error or something cause I feel like these are instead the best adaptations of video games in movies for me. Talking about Mortal Kombat in particular. I greatly liked the movie

      It's not Mortal Kombat on the list. It's Mortal Kombat: Annihilation

    I loved all the Resident Evil films....and the first Mortal Kombat....

  • SavagePhantoms 9000

    *shows Resident Evil Apocalypse, Resident Evil After Life, and Resident Evil extinction but doesn’t show Resident Evil The Final Chapter*
    Resident Evil the Final Chapter: I see this is an absolute win.

  • SavagePhantoms 9000

    10. Doom [2.3/10] not awesome enough
    9. Street Fighter Legend of Chungli [1.2/10] wrong cast
    8. Double Dragon [2/10] Has no Dragons
    7. Resident Evil Apocalypse [6/10]
    6. Max Payne [9/10] Great
    5. Super Mario Bros. [3.2/10] inccorrect story
    FOWA. BloodRayne [1/10]
    3. House of the dead [1.2/10] terrible plot
    2. Mortal Kombat Inhalation [-1/10] this movie did not try
    1. Alone in the dark [-0/10] terrible just terrible
    Max Payne and Resident Evil are the only video game adaptations that are the best.

    Angelina Jolie as Lara Croft was the ultimate sin. I refused to watch any of those movies for years and when I did finally watch one, it was even worse than I imagined it could be.

      Too bad they didn't cast Elizabeth Hurley as 2001 Lara Croft instead of Jolie.
      And Gemma Atkinson as 2018 Lara Croft instead of Vikander.

    The first Mortal Kombat movie was legendary and if you didn't like it we were not a boy and you were not born in the 90s and you never got to play the game on Nintendo 64 or sega genesis

    I liked Hitman. Btw there was an easter egg in this film when 47 jumped through the window the two guys looked at 47 but when they looked at the tv screen it showed that they're playing one of the Hitman Video games.

    Basically every movie based on fighting game is shit. DOA, Tekken, Street Fighter, sequels of Mortal Kombat movie, King of Fighters, etc. They were all shit and abominations. Who the hell wanted to make a movie based on a fighting game.

    I’d rank MK Annihilation as 1. It’s known as one of the worse movies of all and it literally has a 3% rating on rotten tomatoes and IMDB. And there’s so much laughable and stupid ass stuff. Also why is Tomb Raider one of them?? I thought they were really good honestly

    Who the hell is this Uwe Bohl, and why did they keep using him as director??
    BTW, DOA sucks, but Holly Valance was surprisingly good in it....

      Uwe Bill is a German movie director who has never made a good movie. He once challenged critics who criticized his movies to a boxing match. That didn’t make him a better director.

    Max Payne has much more potential but I don't think it's so bad...there are much much worse "attempts" to bring game on silver screen.

    The Résident Evil movies arent bad as movies in general, so much as they are disrepectfull to the source meteral. If they weren't based of the Resident Evil games and had there own title like say Zombie Slayer we wouldnt hate them so much.
