10. Mortal Kombat

It banked its appeal on being extremely bloody, visceral and just plain nasty. The movie, however, truned out to be a sanguine, made-for-children affair with a terrible techno title track and a long-haired Christopher Lambert well beyond his sell-by-date. The best thing you can feel about Mortal Kombat is that it’s not as bad as was the Jean Claude Van Damme movie based on Street Fighter. Or the one based on Dead Or Alive. Or also Tekken. But it happens to be one of the Top 10 best video games based movies ever made.

Even for the low expectations we held for the Resident Evil: Apocalypse film, it barely managed to be even a disappointment. The set-up is much more evocative of the game itself, but Apocalypse simply uses the Resident Evil brand advantage to recycle a fairly pedestrian zombie (read: infected) storyline and the second film shows a franchise already beginning to run out of steam. Bad as it was though, it’s still way better than Mortal Kombat, and makes the list of the Top 10 best video games based movies ever made.

The second Lara Croft film, Lara Croft: The Cradle of Life, defied all sorts of expectations, logic and reality itself by expertly managing to be even sillier than the first installment before, while being only half as entertaining too. However, Jolie is still brilliant and also the supporting cast which includes Gerard Butler and Djimoun Hounsoun is always worth a watch. Lara Croft films aren’t really good as a rule; but it looks like there might be even more coming.
