@rshack Resident Evil was never a graphic novel. This movie was terrible. It was boring throughout the entire movie. Who decided that Jackie Gephardt from That 70's Show would be perfect as Mona Sax? There was some good cinematography, but that's the only good thing I have to say about this movie. Just another example of a bad movie based on a video game.

had the potential to be so much better, could have followed the game plot closer

good point dank. except you made one mistake. this movie was not based on a game first. it was a graphic novel. just like resident evil.

how can anybody say this movie was good? i couldn't even finish it because it was so bad. this should teach us a lesson... never turn games into movies. name five good movies that were once games... exactly

A #2 would be awesome! and ofcourse this one ruled, full of emotion with that action it promises. Mark was the best choice they could have made - he's the best actor :D

A number two is possible and I deffinately wouldn't mind! MARK WAHLBERG IS THE BEST! :D

This movie was so damn damn awesome! It was really beautifully shot and very well done in all other aspects, like acting, casting, action, drama.. It held itself I think further than expected (to me) because I wasn't too sure what to expect other than a great movie, but it let it self really shine. The movie was deffinately emotionally driven and it's beyond comparison with other movies because it's not like "other" action movies/ if you could call it that because it's more of a crime thriller really- with it's well-placed action sequences. Wonderful movie! Can't wait for the DVD :)

agree to the music bit..that was indeed rather cool guys. I liked the look of the movie as well, nice cinematography etc.. but story structure was flawed here and there. still enjoyable in my opinion.

film = shite music = AWESOME! and thats that kids.

Mark Wahlberg is agreat artist but he should't have done this move.

This movie is so Beautiful and dark I think its well done and the main actor is so gorgeous.

The movie is outta this world. Anyone who is a Maxc Payne video game freak will love the movie. I suggest you see it and soon

Don't get me wrong I loved the movie the graphics and music played a big part, but there was something missing I can't put my finger on it. I think maybe it needed to go into more depth than it did.

I would give it 3.5 stars if there was the option. The music was great...couldn't have been too much better. good twists too! I expected a shotgun and I got one lol

pretty good movie... liked the scene when the guy is being dragged out of the building.

This was a great movie, it had alot of relations to the video game and even better when it wasnt related to the video game. We all want to see something new, right? We dont want to see the same thing as we have read/played before.

the song in the preview is Save Me by Stereo Black its a really awesome song!!! Just found it.

posted by Blondie on Oct 15, 2008 08:57:17

hey Rob, have looked up Metsuo online and on their myspace page are some of their tracks to listen to and they sound incredible!! definately perfect for the movie. thanks for sharing!!

posted by Lourdes on Oct 14, 2008 12:51:41

Metsuo are a band from the UK. They are known for their dark and dramatic music and have composed a few tracks for the movie, including music for the ending credits. they are pretty amazing. check them out on myspace!!

posted by Rob on Oct 07, 2008 03:50:27

I keep hearing about Metsuo...who is that??

posted by Lourdes on Oct 07, 2008 03:44:53

well...a lot of the geeks are already criticizing the movie for not being a better adaptation of the computer game.. but if it was a 1:1 adaptation, all we’d see would be a guy with a gun running around in circles for 180mins, no? ;) Only joking, but I think people who haven’t played the game will love the movie more than those that compare it to the computer game. The movie itself is amazing!! its got all a dark action movie needs: cool storyline, great cast and Metsuo are involved in the music!!!

posted by Rob on Oct 07, 2008 03:42:28

I am awaiting the movie as well as the next game, no vlad and vinni in this one because this one seems more closely based on the plot of the first game. still the vlad was in the first game although it wasnt till the second that he became a principal player.

posted by DefconFx on Sep 30, 2008 11:40:23

where the hells is vlad and vinne gognitti? and why is such a young chick from that 70s show playing Mona Sax?

posted by SmallieBigs on Sep 29, 2008 08:28:08

Sounds like a band called "orgy"

posted by Ittcehwiz on Sep 27, 2008 11:35:30

the song is "if i was your vampire" - marilyn manson

posted by fuckshit on Sep 27, 2008 11:35:29

does anyone know what the song is that plays during the preview? It is so sick. I am like obsessed with it but i can't find it anywhere.

posted by kberry on Sep 27, 2008 06:19:01

5 stars cause it's max payne but bravura black and no vlad... shock to the system.

posted by KATZATA on Sep 20, 2008 08:29:43

The plot is interesting, even if it may be a little over-the-edge, but I'm still gunna watch it for sure!

Max Payne is SICK! so is Marky Mark.

posted by skaggatron on Sep 03, 2008 00:00:00

I CANT WAIT for the trailer to come to the UK. I hear Metsuo are being involved in the music.. if thats the case, its going to be AMAZING!
