Bear in mind, that i've never played the Sands of Time, only the first 2 on PC, but i enjoyed the movie, it was just what it proposed to be, a action blockbuster, with a cheesy and forced romance and some cool fight scenes, nothing more, nothing less.
But anyway, i enjoyed, it was entertaining, which is more than i can say about 99,99% of the video-game based movies.

So, 5/10 tibs.

Though I'm partial to the first MK movie since it came out when I was 14 and I was hooked on fighters. It's campy and TNT just drove it into the ground, but I still like it.

PoP kept enough of the core elements that made the game fun (free-running, Sands, hot, yet loud-mouthed woman) with the "mandatory" hollywood formulaic predictable shit.
All in all, a good action/adventure movie and a decent fan service.
And I gotta agree with you about the first MK. To this day i look fondly towards that movie as one of the few game-to-movie conversions done well and fun.

It's nice that we've seemed to get past the Uwe Bowl era of VG to movies, and the plots in VG are getting some attetion, but some of the adaptations that I've heard are on the way (Mass Effect, Gears of War) IMO are destined for epic failure. How do you adapt a 40+ hour game, with so much backstory, into a decent 2h flick? I smell shit floating.

All work and no play makes me..., well, you know the rest.

I totally back this post short of agreeing w/knowing with PoP as I have not seen it, but understand it's fantastic for a game movie. Perhaps the fact is that when looking all the way back you get one excellent game movie a decade, then a decent one maybe two aside from that, and then the rest are all pure turds that should never have seen the light of day.

DOOM while odd was not terrible, just not fantastic. Super Mario Bros was goofy but it wasn't a pure pos either. PoP and MK1 movie were fantastic and raked it in, hell MK was for I think 6wk the #1 boxoffice movie amazingly enough. But getting beyond that stuff, I can't think of one game movie worth a crap at all, especially the need to smoke a (uwe) Boll to get anything of interest of it crap from that idiot.

Yes I am aware I left out the Resident Evil series as I'm uncertain how people gauge it. I do know the first one was pretty damn popular as was the second, but I think the next were hated as I can't remember a thing about them.

Avoid, unless you want to send people you hate to it. There are so many things wrong with the movie that I lost count while sitting in that theater. The fact that there were only three other people in the theater with me should have warned me.

One thing was right. Wife went w/friends to it the other night. After the dude fucks the monster, he goes home and to his wife he says to her after she says something to him 'yeah I fucked up.' The friend of her's yelled out loud 'yeah you fucked up, you fucked the monster' and supposedly everyone in the audience lost and just started rolling. High point of the movie was IMPROV! :D
