Far Cry: The Movie

I know what’s up.  You are just like me.  You are sitting there on your couch flipping channels thinking to yourself, “Man, when are we going to have a nonstop action movie based on a video game that’s so cheesy that it makes Doom look like a work of art?”

Well my friends, your prayers have been answered.  They’ve been answered... by Uwe Boll.  After delivering such gems as Bloodrayne 2 and Alone in the Dark 2 (yes, those movies exist), Uwe Boll found it necessary to destroy another of our video game treasures.  The one in the cross-hairs this go around is Far Cry.  Apparently the story from the game wasn’t good enough for him because it had plot twists and turns, so he decided to write a “dumbed-down” version of the same story for the audience.  It was either that or he couldn’t wrap his head around a photographer that turns out to be a CIA Agent.

All that being said, if you want to see some pretty decent actors getting a paycheck and some explosions, then grab this one off the shelf at your local Wal-Mart next Tuesday the 24th.  Poor Don S. Davis, so good in Stargate SG-1 for so many years and now this has permanently gone down on his filmography.

If you played Modern Warfare 2 recently, you might recognize one of the main baddies in the film as the character Ghost from MW2.  I am basing my opinions off the trailer, which can be seen below.
