Wow, I can't believe they went through with this. Just check out the trailer. Worse yet, they use the subtitle of a RESIDENT EVIL game (Dead Aim).

Apparently it is going to be on the Sci-Fi channel on Feb 11.

That day will be the darkest of video game based movie history.

The acting in the House of the Dead 2 video game was among the worst that I have ever seen, so at least they have the chance of exceeding the game in that department.. Although I guess I wouldn't count on it, considering its a Sci-Fi Pictures Original, AKA the worst garbage on TV.

Is Uwe Bolle directing it? If not, this might be better than his movie.

After playing HotD 3 and 4, you realize that the superlatively bad acting in 2 must've been intentional. Why? Because in 3 and 4, they've gone from shockingly awful to reekingly mediocre... and it's a change for the worse.

Not done by Uwe.

All of the initial reviews for it say that while it's a generic, bad direct-to-video horror movie, it's not nearly as awful as Dr. Boll's debut. That's not saying much, but it does provide hope that these game franchises can be saved after Boll has his way with them.

Ooh... plus Sid Haig's in it for about 5 minutes. That automatically makes it better than the first one.
