Call of Duty Video Game Could Be Adapted Into a Feature Film

Buzz In: What Do You Think of Movies Based on Video Games?

War play video game Call of Duty could join the ranks of Max Payne and Prince of Persia by going from gaming console to big screen: an adaptation of the game may be in the works (admittedly, all I know about Call of Duty is that it's the video game Jim, Karen, and Andy played in the Stamford branch on The Office).

Video games have been mined for years for movie potential, but only a few have proved successful. Sometimes the movies are entertaining, but other times the plot lines come second to special effects. I have mixed feelings; I think Tomb Raider is great but Super Mario Bros. majorly missed the mark. Where do you stand? Do you hold a particular video game movie close to your heart?

I'm not a huge video game fan, but I have loved the Halo franchise since it came out (as well as the oldies but goodies - Mario Kart, Strett Fighter, Mortal Kombat, etc). most of the adaptations haven't been all that great but I still think a Halo movie (which had supposedly been in the works for a while) has the potential to be amazing. I do like Max Payne (haven't seen the movie though), Prince of Persia, and Call of Duty (though I'm not sure how different an adaptation will be from every other WWII movie); and it would be interesting to see how they look on the big screen...

I liked Silent Hill, but I think most video games are better as games.
