480

There are dozens of movies based on games, but unfortunately most of them are failed. Nexter analyzed the IMDb ratings and Rotten Tomatoes critics reviews to gather top 5 movies for games fans.

1.  Warcraft (2016)

IMDb: 6,9

The film’s action takes place in the World of Warcraft universe – rather complicated and not very interesting for anybody not familiar with the original game history. But “Warcraft” has been the first picture to gross $400 million.

“Missteps and all, the movie pulses with a true believer’s conviction.”

Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

2. Resident Evil (2002)

IMDb: 6,7.

A series of films Resident Evil took the concept of the living dead and the powerful corporation Umbrella in the game story. By the way, the script for the first part was written by one of the most famous authors of post-apocalyptic stories George Romero, but lately he was replaced by younger Paul Anderson.

From 2002 to 2016 were released six films. According to the rating the first one is still the best. If you like zombie stories and female protagonists in action movies – do not miss it.

“Forgettable horror — more gory than psychological — with a highly satisfying quotient of Friday-night excitement and Milla power.”

Mike Antonucci, San Jose Mercury News

3. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010)

IMDb: 6,6

The adaptation of the 2003 game with Jake Gyllenhaal received mixed reviews from critics. It was disappointing for those who wanted to see a serious drama. It’s more likely a one-night movie with a very small percent of original story plot.

“It’s not a classic, but it’s sturdy enough, thanks to Gyllenhaal and a sly and grousing turn by Alfred Molina as Sheikh Amar, a scoundrel with a heart of gold — or at least, a ticker very interested in riches.”

Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post

4. Silent Hill (2006)

IMDb: 6,6

The screen version of the first part of Silent Hill is not only for fans of the game. This is a good horror with its atmosphere and minimum of computer graphics.

The game scenario was changed: a woman becomes the protagonist, also some plot details and secondary characters differ from the game version.

“The film is overlong, with too many unnecessary scenes (a lot of the movie seems like pointless running around), but it packs in a few scary moments and offers a nicely ambiguous conclusion.”

James Berardinelli, ReelViews

5. Battleship (2012)

IMDb: 5,8

Based on the Hasbro naval war game. Peter Berg produces and directs Battleship, an epic-scaled action-adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force.

“Battleship is dopey, preposterous and unintentionally hilarious in all the wrong places, but as directed by Peter Berg, it is also energetic, fast-moving and bracing.”

Rex Reed, New York Observer
