    As long as it contains 2 hours of total carnage, devestation, very big explosion and other stuff that makes you go wtf ownage. (something like the last hour from starship troopers on triple steroids)

    It could be a potential cool movie to watch. You see, most game conversion movies are more talk lesser action. Its a action game so i expect a action movie. I dont need character building, just shoot and blow everything up.

    But then again thats my personal opinion about how a GOW movie should look

    This could end up being pretty cool but will probably be like the Halo Movie and collapse. Although I think they're still making the Halo Movie, just not for a year or 2.

    Uh-oh.

    This doesn't bode well.

    That said, I would like to see something dealing with the very limited back story around Fenix that some light is cast on in the collectors edition art book.

    I can't imagine this being good, especially not with the costumes that're going to have to be fabricated, and the weapons. I mean, who wants the job of manufacturing the lancer assault rifles chainsaw, which looks to be stupendously difficult to make work?

    If you guys want some more inside info on how gears really is doing, go here http://gearsofwar.moviechronicles.com/
    I've been fallowing it for awhile, along with Batman the Dark Knight and Indiana Jones 4. It looks like it could be an amazing film, with a great writer and director but the newest news is that its either been canceled or put on hold.

    It's going to turn out to be a joke, why don't they hire some decent writers or actually get ideas from the fans themselves?

    Stuart Beattie is a great writer and has produced several scripts that have been major box office successes such as Collateral or Pirates of the Caribbean. So I believe they already have a good writer, the hard part if finding a decent director. Len Wiseman, as the rumor has it, is a pretty good director but the only movie he really has to show for it is the films Live Free or Die Hard or the Underworld series. Also since its being produced by newline cinema, creators of Lord of the Rings, I'm sure they wouldn't back a movie that could become another video game flop of a movie.

    (Edit: Ok, maybe Stuart Beattie might not be the best because he also wrote Derailed which was a crap movie, even though clive owen is the man.)

    anyway.... as long as it is not made by Uwe Boll it has a chance of being adequate.

    I know it's coming, but it's not out yet. And I bet II and III will take ages to get ported.
