That idiot. Yeah sure, people wanna see steroid junkies *bleep*ing female locust while the war is going on. SUUUURE! All the "love story" That gears needs is the hinting at something between Anya and Marcus. THAT'S IT. Gears is about blood and guts, death and destruction.

A tender coming of age tale of the blossoming debutante Locust Princess and her trysts with the stoic, but secretly sentimental and sensitive liutenant RAAM. Will love find its way through the catacombs and deserted streets of Sera for these innocent, bloodthirsty hearts?

Oh yeah. What a fantastic ending. The Locust will be friends with everyone, and Phenix will get married to "Julia" the locust female which suddenly popped up at the end of the movie.

@oni_hero or a boot-locust face-curb threesome
@Keefah they're trying to appeal to the widest audience possible, which doesn't make sense since the only people that would be interested are the ones who have played the games. besides where is the sense in making a pg-13 film based on an r-16/18 game?

Nicely written, I lol'd! But I hope we don't see that in the official movie synopsis.

I, for one, would like to see a movie without an unnecessary romance.

I didn't like Les as a director anyways, I was unimpressed with both Underworlds and Live Free or Die Hard was meh. The fact that he flaked out because there's no "romance" only goes to show how poor of a director he is. If he doesn't have enough motivation and creativity to get past that hurdle, he's very narrow minded (as seen with the dullness that was Underworld).

So, I for one will be glad to see a new director for this film, I think it deserves better. I'd love to see Christopher Nolan or Neill Blomkamp direct this.

Blomkamp would be the ideal choice for this considering it'll be heavily CGI driven. Christopher Nolan doesn't enjoy CGI much and his avoidance of the subject would just push up costs. I mean even in Inception he filmed the actual sky view of Paris before bending it with CGI so he was combining real world and effects, Nolan would make the Locust real people in costume when CGI would probably look more convincing these days. If anyone will do this film properly it is Blomkamp especially considering District 9 showed he wasn't afraid of extreme gore with soldiers exploding all over the place.

I'm a chick and I love romance movies but come on Gears of War is an awesome game that could be a great movie with NO romance. It could be just and action movie not a action/romance. Come on Hollywood.
