Video game-to-movie enthusiast Uwe Boll had already acquired the film rights to Far Cry the video game from Crytek before the game was even released (and subsequently became a smash hit, spawning several sequels), which explains how such an unsuccessful director had been given permission by Crytek to handle such a anticipated project. The film was budgeted at £30 million but took in less than $1 million at the box-office. See more »

Forget the game it is based on and you might find it watchable
This may be Uwe Boll's best movie ever. No,I'm not a fan. How could I be. Uwe Boll is a director who shows no respect for his audience and doesn't deserve respect when it comes to making movies. He even admitted himself that he does it solely for the money. He is not skilled at all and has got the creativity of an amoeba. But is that a reason for not liking or watching his movies. Well,yes and no. It all comes down to expectation. If you have none than "Far Cry" will surprise you. Til Schweiger is well aware of Boll's reputation and doesn't take it seriously which shows and is one of the strong points of the movie. The second strong element are the action scenes which are actually pretty decent and fun to watch. Does this movie has anything to do with the game? Of course not(OK,maybe 1 or 2 elements are taken from the game). Does it have a good story? Guess again. What about the acting? At least it wasn't completely annoying and Til's Jack Carver was very likable. "Far Cry" is movie that can be fun if you are able to put your brain off.
