Okay, people. This movie is based on a video game that, to many people, had a ground breaking, engrossing, story. Not just in the myriad details, but in the way that they were revealed to you in the sequence of the game.

Now I understand that many fans of the movie could care less about the game, but if you were a real fan of the game, and enjoyed every plot twist and subterfuge as i did, then you would have to pan this movie. It is the difference between reading Romeo and Juliet and seeing the movie.

I just can't believe that the writers of the original story can sleep at night after seeing their masterpiece abused in such a fashion. I hope they made a lot of money.

As for the rest of the non-gaming public; If you liked this movie, fine by me. I am not too big on action-based shooters. But don't you crave just the slightest bit of storyline, maybe even one that makes sense? You can have that and action, too.
