Movies based on video games.
Super Mario Bros
Actually, this is the first movie based on the computer game. For this reason, it has got into the Guinness Book of Records. The film turned out so disgusting that it causes nothing but laughter. The plot is as follows. Brothers, who had been working as plumbers in Brooklyn, found themselves in a parallel world and tried to save the princess from the bloodthirsty monster-dictator. By the way, arcade game “Super Mario Bros.” – unlike eponymous movie – is the most successful in the history.
Lara Croft: Tomb Raider
“Lara Croft: Tomb Raider” is perhaps the most famous film based on video game, due to the famous actress Angelina Jolie. The film is full of adventures and tricks characteristic of computer games. She fights robots, finds secret rooms and fantastic artifacts. The movie was a success, and filmmakers decided to make a sequel – Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life.
“Resident evil” is also quite successful movie, inspired by a game and starring famous actress Milica Jovović. The main character named Alice lost her memory. She got into a secret laboratory where all employees have died because of the computer intelligence and the leak of dangerous virus. After exploring the underground facilities, Alice reveals that all the dead turned to carnivorous zombies. Unfortunately, the next franchise series were less successful then the first one.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
Among the games made into films, a special place is occupied by the action game Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. The game created by Ubisoft, made a great impression on producers John August and Jerome Leon Bruckheimer. Unlike the original Prince of Persia, The Sands of Time is not a platform game but an action game. The main character moves through along intricate multi-stored buildings breathtaking acrobatic stunts and fighting the enemies.
Last but not least in our list of games made into films is Doom. This iconic shooter is deservedly considered one of the most influential game in the whole industry. Thanks to it shooters gained unprecedented popularity as a genre. Screening was not so successful and, in fact, had very little to do with the game.
