Video games may be one of the most dominant art forms on the planet, but for whatever reason that level of popularity has never quite translated to film. The sad, and almost universally shared belief is that most – if not all – video game movies suck. One need only look at the films often considered to be “the best video game movies ever made” to realize we have a problem: if merely decent genre flicks like Silent Hill and Mortal Kombat are among the best of the genre, we have a long way to go.
On the other hand, it’s best not to take these properties at face value. The secret to enjoying these films, no matter their quality, is to take them for what they are, pure dumb-fun entertainment. If you do that, you may surprise yourself and find your enjoyment meters rising considerably. With that being said, the folks over at Cineplex Movies have put together this supercut highlighting the “best” films that the genre has to offer.
