    I hope this will be done well. We never had a good video game movie that was not cg.

    Prince of Persia, Silent Hill, Street Fighter (purely for laughs). There's been a couple...

    TBF, I don't think Kojima would have ever agreed to this unless he felt it was worthy. Definitely going to be following this.

    This will be really good or really, really bad. I did like Iron Man and Amazing Spider Man, so hopefully this falls in the former category. They just better not try to redesign REX, though, the MGS4 version looked perfect and just needs the railgun put back on.

    I do wonder if they'll include Psycho Mantis, though, and in the case that they do if they'll try to incorporate the whole 4th wall breaking thing he does in the first game where he screws with the controler's rumble feature.

    Well, it isn't out yet, and it's not exactly based on an actual video game, but Wreck It Ralph is looking pretty good and is based on the idea of video games...

    :lol  Okay, fair enough. But only because it falls into the category of "so bad it's good".

    I know THAT will be good. :D  Definitely seeing that movie on opening day.

    To make this movie good, it's gotta be like three hours long.

    Also Jean Claude Van Damme as M. Bison and his infamous "OF COURSE", and the fact the film is somehow still better than the god awful cartoon.

    With a more exciting battle with REX, since the audience is going to want to see the thing wrecking everything in sight and not do the equivalent of trying to kill a fly (Snake) with an Elephant Gun (all the weapons sans railgun)

    Mortal Kombat...BOOM!
    these are also good game-based movies

    um...Jean Claude Van Damme wasn't M. Bison...Raul Julia was.
    Street Fighter - Colonel Guile vs General Bison - YouTube
    Van Damme was Guile

    Hugh Jackman as Naked/Solid Snake. I've never thought about that before...seems like it could work.

    There is no mgs 5. Do you mean peace walker?

    Also the only way to make a good movie is to do metal gear not metal gear solid. Why because mg was an 8 bit game with no major cut scenes. You don't need movies for the solid series because they are already like movies.
