There's a Spy-Hunter movie coming

Cast: Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (Alec Sects)

Director: John Woo (in talks)

Premise: Former F-15 pilot Alec Sects (The Rock) is recruited to become a member of a government agency called International Espionage Services (IES), specifically joining an elite group called the Spy Hunters. Piloting an experimental battle-car, the G-6155 Interceptor, with all varieties of weapons and gimmicks (including the ability to transform into a speed boat or a super-fast motorcycle), Sects and his fellow Spy Hunters are given the assignment of defeating Daemon Curry, the evil president of a cartel called NOSTRA International, which has plans of world domination. Of course, the bad guys have their own souped-up weapon-packed vehicles, and they don't like being "hunted".

Yeah, I saw an interview with the Spyhunter movie's producer on G4.

They should make a Metal Slug movie. Or did they already make an anime of that? I'm not sure.

After some deliberation I decided that this would be the best palce to post the review (hopefully it will become apparent after the review)

Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children

The reason i have posted this here is beacuse I would not recomend this film to the movie going public but jsut to those who have played the game through. Sure you could watch the film and marvel at the visual specticle but the film draws very heavily on teh knowlge of the game.

The film is set 2 years after teh end of the game. The world is now plauged by an afliction called geo-stigma. Cloud and the rest of the team return when a new group led by the man called Kadaj atempt the regain Jenova's head for what tehy call Reunion.

One of the main problems I had with the previous Square atempt at a movie was the lack of good action sceens. This film certainly has tackled that. Some of the action sceens are breath taking.


The film is basically a visual show case with a story tagged on. Not that I am saying the story was bad it I just don't think that is was the film will be remebered for.

The voices all seemed fine to me and hopefully they will get some good voice actors for the English dub.

All in all this film was a Final Fantasy VII fanboys wet dream. Whether it will hold up over time I am not sure but it was fun.

9/10

Goddammit.  I was hoping Spehiroth would be flashback only.

Other than that, nice review...I'm guessing it's not out in the states yet?  Where'd you import from?

Alright I got it through a torrent (pretty good quality as well) and in all fairness Amazon.com was advatising the American release as 31th December 2025 (add to that the fact I am English).

This is absurd, Video games only work because they're fun and interactive.  No one actor can ever completely capture these extremely animated characters...What next, Kirstey Alley as Donkey Kong ?

If there was a movie about Luigi's Mansion, he would act all wimpy and cowardly.  Anyway, anyone seen the direct to video Sonic the Hedgehog anime movie?  That was lame.

That Final Fantasy: Advent children is one of the better Game to movies that i have seem,  I think the reason it actually work because the makers of the game actually made the movie rather then some half assed hollywood movie director did it

like in:
a) I have erased this movie from my memory.
or
b) I haven't noticed that Chris Roberts quit game-making to fulfill his dream of becoming a director...?

I think it would be interesting if they tried to make an animated or claymation movie on Ghosts n Goblins, it could be cool and creepy at the same time, not to mention them using the music from the game since it kicks ass

Uwe Boll? The same director who did "Alone in the Dark," "House of the Dead," and "Bloodrayne"? That film is so totally going to suck.

The one thing you should now is. Evil Dead was a movie along looooong time before they made it a game!

yeah but that was an original, a classic, now with all the modern films where the zombies kick asses and have super natural powers they aint so go, the originals are always the best.
