5 Fail Game To Movie Adaptations
Directed by: Uwe Boll
Starring: Kristanna Loken, Ben Kingsley, Michael Madsen
Another Uwe Boll classic makes it into our list. BloodRayne is by far one of the worst game movie adaptations, and possibly one of the worst films ever made. It tops many people’s list as the worst videogame movie in the history of videogame movies, and this is with much merit. All that Uwe Boll took from the game was the basic concept that Rayne is a dhampir (half human-vampire hybrid) and just exploited the concept from there. I’m not going to even mention the story. All you need to know is that the movie is low budget in every sense of the word. It is totally miscast and is directed by a chimpanzee of a movie director. Ben Kingsley (a veteran actor) is glaringly horrible in this film. Far worse than his role in the Thunderbirds movie which is a godsend in comparison to Uwe Boll’s ‘crappolla’ movie.
The movie suffers from an abundance of plotholes, bad acting and horrible costume design which makes the film appear more like a low budget porno than a proper movie. If anyone suggests this movie to you. Stop being their friend, and I’m serious when I say that.

Starring: Jon Foo, Kelly Overton, Ian Anthony Dale
Tekken was a terrible movie. One I wish I will never have to watch again. It wasn’t as bad as Street Fighter. But it still didn’t win any fans. The story was contrived, but bettered Street Fighter with an increased amount of coherency within the plot. Although, I say that likely because there were some gaping plotholes and the acting was wooden as per usual in fighting game adaptations. Just watch Dead Or Alive and you’ll know what I mean.
I just felt again that this was a case of bad direction in the film and incorrect casting. Jon Foo is not in any way or form plausible as Jin Kazama, and lacked the brevity and chops to play the role properly. Ian Anthony Dale was much better as Scorpion in last year’s Mortal Kombat web series and is stale as Kazuya Mishima. Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, who played Heihachi Mishima, fails at playing the villian throughout the whole moive. It’s just all mundane. The fighting is mundane, the costume design gets increasingly raunchy as time progresses and in turn the movie can’t be taken seriously at all. A real waste of time when it comes down to it.
