Top 10 Worst Video Game Movies

The Top Ten

1 Super Mario Bros.

This movie is inexplicable. They destroyed the whole essence of Mario universe and put stupid things in place. I think for a movie about games to work, people working in the project should understand about games first. - Palmeiras

I hate movies based on video games! Thumbs up if you do too.

My older brother claims they explain what happen to the mushroom kingdom I believe he's lying - shfydgi

2 Alone in the Dark

This movie was a huge let down for me as a fan of the game.

Wow This Movie Was Terrible enough Said...

All I have to say about is Uwe Boll. Worst director in history and worst film in his filmography to exist.

3 Mortal Kombat: Annihilation

While the first Mortal Kombat was at least watchable, the sequel was just terrible at best. Any redeeming qualities? No, none. Don't bother searching the web for any.

The first film was very entertaining, so how did they mess up so bad?

An extremely awful sequel to an entertaining video game movie. - RyuKang1995

4 Street Fighter

The plot was terrible and stupid, and Jean Claude van Damm was terrible, I could not understand a word he said. But Raul Julia was great.

If Raul Julia is in it, it can't be THAT bad. - BeatlesFan1964

5 House of the Dead

More like Zombie Island, Its obvious the people who made this movie never played the game and why is this movie set on an island instead of a giant mansion. - egnomac

That "Game on" is so bad, I put that song in the worst songs of all time list, but I loved We will rock you, it's one of my favourite rock song. But everything about this movie is bad. The story, the actions, the effects, nothing is good about this movie. If you wanna enjoy watching a movie released in July, the perfect movie to watch is Ant-Man.

This is the worst movie that I've ever seen in my life. The 2010 short film was way better than this movie. The movie is bad, but the song, Game On featuring Good Charlotte, is good. That's it. That's the only good thing about the movie. I hate this movie, but I love that song.

I hate this movie but there are movies based on video games worse than this (Angry Birds and Hitman Agent 47).

This movie is really good. Why does everyone hate it?

9 Resident Evil

This movie had a lot of potential sadly director Paul Anderson decided to come up with his own version of Resident Evil one with out anyone's favorite characters or anything remotely interesting. - egnomac

Premise-let's take one of the most popular horror games In the and make a movie that does not keep the plot or any of the characters, oh and also because I'm bored let's throw in a unexplained robot to piss fans off

Better is games than movies because in movies are protagonists also antagonists good but this isn't too much funny if I feel somebody is coming to kill Redfield

Very cringy

10 Final Fantasy - The Spirits Within

The Contenders

11 Pokemon The First Movie

This movie was awesome what the hell?!

12 Max Payne
13 D.O.A.: Dead or Alive
14 Need for Speed

Spoilers ahead!

Not a bad movie but no Fast and Furious. The acting seems to be impressive, and so are the cars, but the plot has holes and errors and doesn’t make sense sometimes, especially how the man who set up the De Leon race said how the winner takes all the cars. Liar! All the cars but a red Koenigsegg get totaled during the race and Toby Marshall only going to jail after winning the race. Also how can Dino be convicted of killing Pete when we didn’t see any evidence? Also another character said Pete died during the night; he actually died during the day. Overall not an excellent film but not bad. 7/10

15 Assassin's Creed

This movie was actually kinda decent, I enjoyed it

Worst movie

16 Doom

This movie sucked. I'm a huge fan of Doom, but this sucked because it was about mutants and not hell creatures. - doodie

Super underrated! This is one of the best movies based on a game. Do you like sci fi horror action, then this is it.

If this is just the story about Dr. Doom from Fantastic Four, then it's definitely bad.

17 Hitman
18 Wing Commandor
19 Tekken
20 Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li
21 Ratchet & Clank
22 Resident Evil: Afterlife

The fourth movie in the series and they decided to ruin two of my favorite characters: Chris Redfield and Albert Wesker. Damn you Paul W.S. Anderson.

23 Pokemon the Movie Kyurem vs the Sword of Justice
24 Pokemon Black Victini & Reshiram

I wish the whole Pokemon franchise dies soon!

25 Hitman: Agent 47

An attempted reboot for a film franchise and it's just as bad as the first try, if not worse.

Worst video game movie ever! This should be #1, followed by Pixels and Mario bros.

First, Mario, then Hitman? - Fullwalking2

26 The Angry Birds Movie

Lets face it there was no way a game with not much of a story could do well as a motion picture

Horrible game, horrible movie!


27 Lara Croft - Tomb Raider
28 Resident Evil: Apocalypse
29 Resident Evil: Extinction
30 Resident Evil: Retribution
31 Tekken 2: Rise of the Tournament

37 Pokemon 2000
38 Pokemon 4Ever: Movie
39 Pokemon White Victini & Zekrom
40 Pokemon the Movie: Diancie & the Cocoon of Destruction
41 Tron: Legacy

This is the worst Disney movie ever, Planes was potentially better than this plus same with Alice Through the Looking Glass and Planes: Fire and rescue.

I know I love this movie but I think Wreck-It ralph is way better.

42 Wreck-It Ralph

WHAT THE HELL! Best video game movie ever, and I'm serious really

Are you serious, this is awesome! Best video game movie ever!

Let it go
