Super Mario Bros, The Prince Of Persia, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, Warcraft, Hitman, Tomb Raider, Tekken; I mean I could list flops all day! Lucky for you we don’t have all day. The point I’m trying to make is when will they learn? There has never been a good video game film! Movies based on video games always range from mediocre to flat out terrible.
Square Enix is the latest publisher to throw their hat into the ring. According to informant the Just Cause series will be getting its own live-action adaptation. The film is said to star Game Of Thrones/Justice League actor Jason Momoa. That’s a red flag in itself.He’s a solid actor, but Just Cause stars Rico Rodriguez. Jason isn’t Hispanic, so there’s already an authenticity issue going on here.
Y’all saw what happened when Jake Gyllenhaal played the Prince Of Persia & when Magneto played a Spanish Assassin in Assassin’s Creed. Another reason this movie is destined to flop is the fact that NOBODY PLAYS JUST CAUSE FOR THE STORY! Movies are carried by the story. This game getting a movie makes no sense. I just don’t get it *throws hands up*
