    The game has an awful story with horrifically bad characters, I don't see why this will be any better than Doom or Tomb Raider to be honest.

    If/when there is a movie i agree it will be rubbish, there is no way they can replicate the violence on screen that is in game - chain saws and curb stomps - yeh right.

    In all honesty the games story line is not the strongest either, once you take away the fancy graphics and gameplay which has had a lot of effort put in it seems the story side was neglected somewhat.

    I read the whole thing, it seems like it is going to be your standard no-brainer action film which in no means is a bad thing. It does also seem to vary quite a bit from the game story.

    I will still go and see it, I just hope they cast Dominic Purcell as Marcus as he looks exactly like the game character. :D

    I think it would have to be an animated film to give it a chance, most 'actors' that could pull off looking like Marcus or Dom, wouldn't have the acting talent to make the film even half decent. The Rock and Vin Diesel are 2 actors that are of half decent build, but neither are class actors though they have had some good films. And i wouldn't say they were big enough to pull off the role's really. Then again, stick a ton of COG armour on someone and they will look prety tough!!

    Personally i quite like no brainer action films. Just switch off watch the film and enjoy the effects and the sound. Thats what i want.

    Doom wasn't brilliant because the game had no plot anyway, run around killing monsters. What more could the film be? But GOW has a plot, and the above shows a back story too. It's a film of revenge and fight for survival. Excepted it could end up proper junk, but then so could many films, it just needs to be done well.

    I'd see it. Some people expect to much from action films. Seriously, did any schwarzenegger (or however it's spelt) films make you think? No, but Predator still rocked, and thats a similar idea. Lets face it don't expect to much from the plot and it could be a cool film.

    Actually....i really liked DOOM.....it was interesting, had decent characters and an OK plot. But then, i've always been a Doom-Head......

    I looked forward to GOW for ages and thought it was a pile of poo when i played it. It was more like a graphics demo (hence the 3rd person view in what should have been a FPS) with a chronically cliched story tacked on......

    .....i love loads of crap movies.....but, as i didn't like the game, i don't see the point in a flick.....

    well the Cole will have to be that dude from the green mile no 2 ways abount it man (Michael Clark Duncan) - HE IS ONE BIG ASS DUDE!!


    Marcus would be .. The Rock

    Dom would be .. no idea!


    also for a movie like this you would expect nothing else than a no brainer popcorn flick (i.e doom), its not gotta win oscars people
