Most game movies sound like a dumb idea -- but this one could totally work out well.

Funny how Ken Levine was like a not-as-successful scriptwriter / playwright guy before getting into games, and now that his game is a big hit, Hollywood is all over doing a movie about Bioshock. Maybe 'funny' isn't the right word..but its neat how things worked out.

Maybe 'Ironic', kev?

But to my knowledge, Bioshock was a movie in game form anyways.

Ya ironic will do nicely, thanks joe.

Bioshock was a really good plot. More intelligent that the plot of most Hollywood movies, so it should work out pretty well.

I'm not sure if it'll be better than Uwe Boll's Postal or Blood Rayne or any of those classics.. but maybe.

I hesitated to post but then I decided to...

We've seen the amazing twists, there are no supporting characters. The finale was underwhelming, what's left? A great city and back story.

Translating this game into a movie won't work.

And again you're being to Negative, Bruce, you seem to have a negative outlook on almost everything. Show some Optimism.

I think ti would work as a movie. It basically was a movie. I hope the plot is enhanced though because after awhile, bioshock felt kinda lacking. The middle didn't add anything to the plot and I just stopped playing. If they are recreating Bioshock as a movie, I hope the middle isn't as dry.

Well I hope it turns out good I know Silent hills movie turned out great I loved that movie . It will be interesting though to see how they work out the story line considering the game had two endings.

Bioshock is a masterpiece. I truly hope this turns out well and doesn't put the game to shame.

Bioshock is a brilliant game, and is probably only a few games that could work as a film. I hope it doesn't just kill the game sort of, like the resident evil films IMO

yeah the next RE movie they make I think will be based on RE 4 not sure though, so maybe this one will actually use the storyline of the game( yay!).
