There is a chance the movie will be passable. Hell, I might even enjoy it for what it is if it doesn't wind up utter garbage. FF: Spirits Within = nice spiritual/scifi feel, but not an FF. Resident Evil: Extinction? Freakin' hilarious, but not worthy of being associated with RE. DMC movie? Best chance, I think, is if they CGI that sucker.
Sadly, in order to appeal to the masses, the fans are likely to get shafted regardless. Video game movies rarely work. Fact. The nuances of the subject matter'll fly over Average Joe's head if the screen writer caters to fans, and fans will rage if the movie is dumbed down for the masses.
Like everything else, I'll just wait and see was happens.
You know what? I don't think it will be a good movie, I'm expecting it will be a shade lower than an Underworld production (mind you I like those movies, even though I think they are crappy). --- Official Vergil of the DmC boards. -PSN: mdelrio344 XBL: Stinkk Nassty34
