It’s going to suck.
Not because It’s Mark Wahlberg (which usually does the trick) but because it’s a video game movie. How can one make a Prince Of Persia movie and have it suck? Thats fucking hard to do. Same with Hitman, and both those movies blew chunks. Cardinal Law: Videogame movies suck. Theres also the reversal, movie videogames also suck.
The story of Dude Raider (Drake from Uncharted) is pretty much that of a male Lara Croft. Nothing amazing about it. Itll just be 90 minutes of some temple/forest action, with a girl following him around, him finding something and probably a small plane crash or the explosion of a boat involved.
Not until Zelda or Halo come out will this curse be broken. Until then, the news of this making it to the big screen saddens me.
P.S. Mark Wahlberg? Really? Never seen him play a character with these personality traits, but whatever. What made the character so likable in the game was his charisma and funny quips, good thing Wahlberg has a known surplus of charm and humor.
