Well, Sammo Hung gave up on trying a Soul Calibur movie, so it looks like Hollywood is stepping in.

Quoth IGN:

The Hollywood Reporter tips that Zide has just acquired the movie rights to the game which will be the first at his new Sony-based production company, Anthem Pictures.

The story revolves around two warriors who are chosen by Shaolin monks to recover and destroy a powerful sword, Soul Edge, that has fallen into the hands of an evil prince who plans to use it to open the gates of hell and destroy the world.


Two warriors chosen by Shaolin monks? Evil prince? Hoo boy...

Vincent Price's corpse. Nah, he'll be CG, if he's even in the movie... Apparently there's this theory in Hollywood, "If the movie has anything to do with Asia, we have to stick Shaolin monks in it!"

Dude - Resident Evil rocked! (I'm serious!) It was the perfect B-movie that did NOT take itself serious. The HIVE was cool and the hallway that slices & dices people was excellent. I mean, it's perfect - first there is one lazer beam, then two, then "oh my God you can not escape the HIVE!!!" HAAHAH!!! That was classic - can't wait for the second film!!

Well it depends on what you define "good". You are never going to get a "good" video game movie with drama and good acting etc. because there is just really no games that one could base a "good" film off of. Now there is "entertaining" video game movies. Mortal Kombat was cheesy but it was entertaining. The Street Fighter movie, now it was just plain out horrible, but its crappiness still entertained me, if not to laugh at it. And see Raul Julia trying to pimp Chun-Li in a Hefner robe.

I felt the same way until I recently watched MK1 again... that movie has NOT aged well.

Yes... I agree. I was watching those martial art scenes that I thought were 'so cool' as a kid. Wow that stuff was slow and choppy =) Even that fight scene in the dining hall was slow as hell! I was like... in awe of how much my perspective has changed.

You must see "Future Cops", a Chinese film starring some well known actors, such as Andy Lau, Jacky Cheung, Aaron Kwok or Ekin Cheng.

The story is something like this: General Vega is sentenced to death in the year 20XX (I don't remember the exact year, but it's set in the future), so he sends his soldiers Ken, Sagat and Toyota (Honda, LOL!) to the year 1993 to kill the boy that will sentence Vega in the future. They go to the past just when they scaped from the Future Cops Ryu, Balrog, Guile and Dhalsim. These Future Cops will go to 1993 too, to protect the mentioned boy.

Man, this films is hilaryous! Just in the first minutes of the film, you'll see most of the special attacks of each character, in a really funny way. As you can see, the plot has nothing to do with Street Fighter, but it doesn't matter! Later more Street Fighter characters will appear, and also the main character of a famous anime... The scene were they enter a Mario Bros arcade is priceless!!

Get it, bring your friends and watch it, you won't regret it!! If you can't find it on the net, tell me and I'll share it through emule.

ARGH! What the hell??

Please tell me this is an early April Fool's joke... Ugh. I mean, Soul Calibur's not one of my FAVORITE games, but I do like it... and I hate to hear them destroying the story like that. Maybe... they'll... pretend... that two characters were special good guys or something? Then they'll put others in with other agendas? Here's an idea- when these people make these game movies... why not make the director immerse themselves in the games a little first? That way, maybe the movie will be like the games? I mean, the directors that are making movies from books actually read the books first, right?

Blech. This movie sounds really really bad already... "Okay, now in this scene, Mitsubishi or whatever that samer-eye guy's name is will GLUE HIS PENIS TO HIS LEG! HA! And then he'll try to bone a pie! I'm a genius."

You are wrong. It is possible to make a good video game movie because there are plenty of games a good film could be made from. However, no one is making good films from them. Eventually I think they will. I mean, there are good comic book movies out now. This Soul Calibur movie deal really bothers me because it could be good if done properly, but it sounds like they've already botched it. They could make it a trilogy, ending the first movie of course, with Siegfried getting the Soul Edge and transforming into Nightmare, then make the others based on the second and third games. But they will ruin it. As for video game movies I liked, I liked the first Tomb Raider movie. I'm not a fan of the Tomb Raider games, but I liked the movie.
