  The KOF Movie Will... SUCK!

Right from the moment a live action KOF movie was announced, the only thing I could really think of to say was "Why God why???". Video game movies are almost always horrendous (with a few noteable exceptions), so there was no real reason to think this would be any different. After hearing a few details though, I did start get at least some hope for it. It is being directed by Gordon Chan, and considering he was at the helm of one of my all time favourite movies, Fist of Legend (Jet Li), it did add a small hint of respectabilty to the proceedings.




However, now for the bad part. Here's a snippet of the supposed storyline:


"It also looks like the King of Fighters movie will introduce a new science fiction spin into the setting established in the games’ universe by following the surviving members of three legendary fighting clans who are continually whisked away to other dimensions by an evil power. As the fighters enter each new world they battle that universe’s native defenders, while the force that brought them seeks to find a way to invade and infect our world."


What the...? I wouldn't expect the film to be perfect, but that just sounds crazy. Anyways, according to Movieset.com, the movie has begun filming in Vancouver, Cannada on the 27th of November. It's set for a 2010 release, so we've over a year to wait to see if it turns out as bad as it sounds... I will, as always, try to keep an open mind... but to be blunt, until I see otherwise I am going to call bulls**t on this one! :)

Is it me or does the storyline sound like a re-hash of the Mortal Kombat movies?

...oh dear

the hunt for the first truely decent videogame-to-film adaptation continues...

Well I'd best add a bit of happy to get over all this sad - at least Uwe Boll's not involved - yuss!

Oh god yea... if Uwe Boll was involved I'd be packing my bags to hop on the nearest flight to go kidnap him or something for a few months just to stop him having any involvement in it... lol! LOL
