Wow.
That's just desperation right there.
I'm not going to see this, so if you could, put the explanation on why he turns out to be the bad guy in Spoiler tags.

Yeah, just spill the whole plot. I only really wanted to see the FPS shots in the film becuase it really hasn't been done before to that extent. Wanted to see if it worked at all from a film makers perspective.

The problem is the marketing departments of the film studios see a popular game series, and decide to ignore the people who made a game popular enough for them to want to make a movie to try to sell it to a more mainstream non-gamer audience because they think they can make more money off of a broader audience than they can off of gaming nerds.


In other words, they change it to cater to their own greed at the expense of ignoring the fans, end up with a movie that appeals to no one, and the movie flops very deservedly.

thats so true



oh and the REASON THE ROCK IS A BAD GUY


near the end he starts talkin about how they must do their mission and not ask questions, one of the soldiers refuses to massacre a bunch of innocent ppl(cuz they could be infected) so the ROCK shoots him in the head and says mutiny is punishable by death, then he gets infected and starts to mutate

so the main good guy gets injected with the stuff, see if your evil you turn into demons but if your a good guy then you become just super strong(yeah pretty damned stupid). so he gets injected with the stuff and theres a final showdown at the end with the rock and the main character...a flippin hand to hand fight...
