5 video game adaptations that are not ashamed of

There are computer games that have found a new life, becoming the basis for a big movie. Let's remember other similar film adaptations that not only managed to convey the spirit of the original source, but also turned out to be interesting films in themselves.
If our sick and crazy world has reached the screening of the primitive Angry Birds game, which has spoiled a lot of our nerves, then why not make a movie based on a cult toy?
Assassin's Creed was not played for the sake of mochilov or to tickle your nerves — there are contra, dota and a number of time-tested horror games for this. Assassin's Creed gave the opportunity to plunge headlong into exploring the whole world, in which there are warring orders of Templars and Assassins, traveling through the memory of the main character and much more that can knock out this boring reality. A movie based on the game, if you turn off the grumbling snob in yourself, also copes with this task perfectly.
This is a powerful spectacular movie that does not repeat the plots of the original Assassin's Creed series of games, but builds a new one, but with similar principles. It won't be difficult to figure out, and it's a real pleasure to watch Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard and Jeremy Irons in one clip.
Do you remember the times when you launched your decrepit Celeron and watched the slow progress bar with a sinking heart while installing a new toy? And how did you play for Leon in Resident Evil 2, shuddering with horror every now and then when another evil appeared on the screen? These golden moments of childhood, it would seem impossible to convey on the big screen. But Paul W. S. Anderson succeeded.
The first part of "Resident Evil", in which a young Milla Jovovich jumps around a gloomy laboratory, struck by a deadly virus, and fights off scientists who have turned into zombies — this is also a classic. The most meaty movie, which still gives you goosebumps.
Luc Besson in the producer's chair. Olga Kurylenko undressing every now and then. Scenes in which men knock each other down with firearms (there are many such scenes). What else is needed for happiness?
Such a movie, of course, suffocates in us intellectuals with a fine mental organization who know the meaning of the word "mise en scene". But instead, it awakens furious and passionate animals in us, whose life postulates are easily formulated in a couple of lines. Like a Hitman who is always in a great suit, with a bald head like a billiard ball and a couple of faithful trunks in his bosom - what is not the standard?
And the plot of the film, like the game of the same name, is simple: Hitman is ordered to kill the president of Russia, he practically performs the task, but at the last moment something goes wrong…
"Mortal Kombat" was not just a game that shook the last pocket money out of us into the abyss of slot machines, but a whole symbol of the era of the 90s. Each of us had our own favorite in the game — and then we could spend hours discussing the advantages of a particular character in battle, secret keystrokes, and so on.
Surprisingly, the film has become no less iconic and popular. Sub-zero, Scorpio, Sonya Blade — the heroes we played for (or supported in this movie) somehow they reflected our personality. And of course, a great soundtrack that we will all remember until old age. In general, an impeccable movie, no matter how you look at it.
Computer Lara Croft for many of us at a young age opened a wide field for fantasies of varying degrees of immodesty. But when the movie with Angelina Jolie came out, the task was completely simplified.
This movie could basically be watched without sound and just watch how Jolie, in short shorts and with prominent breasts, runs back and forth and gets out of various dangerous scrapes with a distorted face. They don't do that anymore.
