Favorite video game turned into a movie

Inspired by @connerf select your favorite video game that was turned into movie.

I know there were a lot of cheesey aspects, but feel like this was really well done overall, I enjoyed it even more than the recent Halo adaptations.
Sonic! First movie my son saw in the theater. I also love the Mortal Kombat movies and the Tomb Raider movies.
Wreck-it Ralph! I embarrassingly didn't know that Fix-it Felix Jr. was a real game. I loved Wreck-it Ralph probably more than my kids even did. The nostalgia and the arcade theme of this movie made this a win for me.
14 year old me was obviously a big fan of Jolie’s Tomb Raider, but… Detective Pikachu is objectively better.
I think it’s officially safe to choose next years The Super Mario Bros. Movie. I feel like they picked the best voice actors already and a good studio to make it. One thing; Illumination much think Mario skips leg day. How else does he jump like that? Give Mario his booty back.
Detective Pikachu has to be one of the coolest renditions of animation going CGI. All of the Pokemon are beautifully done, story is fun to follow and doesn't take itself too seriously throughout.
Silent Hill. Yes, it was terrible but it was also fun.
Man this is a tough one cause... they're kind of all bad lol. I'm just gonna say Mortal Kombat Annihilation since I was too young to realize how bad it was at the time and thought it was the greatest thing ever
Knowing me, you’d think I’d say Halo…

I’ll never get a Paramount+ subscription solely because of that dumpster fire. The obvious answer here is either Sonic the Hedgehog or Mortal Kombat.
Mortal Kombat. I think they did a really good job with this new one. Yes, its a little different from the games with the addition of Cole but it worked.
Street Fighter. Seriously, Raul Julia as M. Bison is one of the greatest on screen performances in cinema history. Plus you get Van Damme.
I was going to say none but I guess the original Mortal Kombat would be the closest. Game to movie usually doesn't pan out well.
Probably Tomb Raider or Sonic, those are the only two that I would watch if they were on.
I’m hoping Metal Gear Solid is the one!
Sonic the hedgehog & Sonic the hedgehog 2. Currently my oldest kid favorite movies.
No...not that Paul WS Anderson trash fire that was Monster "Milla" Hunter. They made a CGI animated Monster Hunter Legends of the Guild on Netflix. It actually honors the franchise. Yeah it's a little kiddie but they did a decent job respecting the source material.
1995's Mortal Kombat. The movie stayed true to the video game and the action sequences were on par. It definitely had it's cheesy moments, but overall a great action movie.
Mortal Kombat. Great game, and the movies are cult classics for sure.
So I never played the hitman series, but I felt like this game nails the character a mysterious assassin raised in a organization. The storyline is great and actions scenes are awesome
Movie hasn’t come out yet but it’s confirmed, so I’ll count it.
Have only played the game, but have heard good things about the movie
Haven't rewatched it as an adult but i loved this movie as a kid. It probably won't hold up now so I won't be rewatching to keep its memory intact 😅. The ones after were definitely a step down. Haven't seen the newest one though.

The Rock and Karl Urban in a testosterone filled action movie, full of giant guns, mutations, and what I thought was a pretty creative first-person shooter sequence. I don't care what the ratings said, this movie was badass.
I've never played the game but Pokémon Detective Pikachu really felt like one of the first times that a movie executive let a full blown video game go HAM. No more 80s execs thinking games were for nerds and making stupid changes.
Tomb Raider (2013), movie in 2018. Alicia Vikander played that role amazingly, the script followed the game nicely, while adding a bit to it. If y'all haven't seen it, y'all need to.
