This has the potential to be amazing or a huge let down. Too bad Kurt Russel is too old to play Snake. We need you Plissken!

has there ever been a decent video game film? at best, we'll get something watchable but mediocre; at worst, well, just ask Uwe Boll...

No not really, although a couple have been just about watchable. I personally believe the problem is how the film makers approach these projects and what preconceptions they take into the process. Take Silent Hill for example, arguably the series biggest strength and the thing that should translate easiest into film is the psychological aspect of it's horror. However the horror in the film was anything but psychological, they kept the monsters, the gore, even the music, but they ditched the intelligent, thought provoking bit.

And that's the issue here, film makers think gamers and whoever else might go to see a video game film don't want intelligent or thought provoking, hell they think we don't even need decent plot or dialogue. They think they can give us blood, violence, explosions, etc. and we'll lap it up.

That's why video game films so far have been a let down.

As long as it doesn't go the way of SMB the movie, though I don't see Hideo Kojima letting them butcher the series. Unfortunately your right MissingScore, film makers think all they gotta do is announce *insert popular series here* the movie and we'll come running like a bunch of crazed fanboys/fangirls.

Isn't this the guy who is also working on movie versions of Uncharted and Infamous?

EDIT: Wikipedia confirms. Also, apparently working on a Mass Effect movie.
