    ...I think it's time to break out my ****-o-meter.

    Game = Good. Movie? Probably bad.

    I was almost expecting to see Uwe Boll's name attached to this, as well.

    oh HELL no.

    If Sony wants to make a movie out of one of their games, why don't they do it with a Metal Gear or Xenosaga installation? They're practically movies as it is, anyway.

    Ah! A Xenosaga movie would be the s**t, loved that game. Wasn't it made by Monolith though (what a fail, can't even remember for one of my most favorite games)? I think I might replay the whole series again. :p

    saw the xmen origins movie couple days ago.. now that was a good flick! they still had the harnasses on and you got to see hugh jackman acting pretending he had claws on.. gonna go see it on the big screen for sure (as long as they don't add in 5 minute ding-a-ling shots like they did in the watchmen movie) I had to keep my eyes on the upper part of the movie screen for like half that movie- ridiculous

    this might be good who knows though- sony has alot of money and all it takes is one nipplehead to ruin it.. hope it's like dune- I liked that movie

    oh man what the fu.....The game was a masterpiece, a silent master piece.

    A movie would be good in the right hands....these guys are destined to screw it up....

    I'll prolly see it but I wonder if its going to be an adaptation of the game or what? I really can't see them producing a whole movie with no dialogue from the main char though, that alone would ruin it for me, I loved how the game was set up.

    It is nice that you admitted that you pirated a movie that is not even released yet, way to go chief.

    hehe it's actually something worth seeing.. not something you'd see outside the editors room.. like even the boss at the end had stickers on his body for the cgi guys to finish up

    if you have a problem with piracy.. that's your issues.. I been around since the 8 bit days, to me it's nothing new or exciting, just is what it is.. the cams are usually total crap- better to see it in the theater.. this one is in 720p =] dunno who leaked it but they probably got fired by now.. any x-men fan should definitely watch this

    Absolutely loved the game, enjoyed every minute of it... why can't they get a decent crew/cast for this? :sigh:
