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

Terrible. Absolutely awful. - iliekpiez

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...

Never seen it but the 1% on Rotten Tomatoes explains enough. - B1ueNew

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

One of the worst movies I have ever seen. - iliekpiez

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

This movie looks so dumb. - B1ueNew

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

Crappy cheap zombie movie. - B1ueNew

Uwe Boll. Need I say more?

6 Bloodrayne
7 Double Dragon
8 Pixels

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).

Not really a video game movie. - B1ueNew

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

Just play the games instead of these cliche crap. - B1ueNew

10 Final Fantasy - The Spirits Within

The Contenders

11 Pokemon The First Movie

This movie was awesome what the hell?!

Grow up, this movie sucks.

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

Why? Just why. - B1ueNew

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.

Doom guy is white not black, not to be raceist

17 Hitman
18 Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li

How bad is it? It's even worse than the Van Damme film. Yeah, let that sink in... - truckturner

19 Wing Commandor
20 Tekken

This actually exists? - B1ueNew

21 Tekken 2: Rise of the Tournament


22 Ratchet & Clank

This movie was a disappointment. At least the game was good. - B1ueNew

23 Sonic: Lost World

That's a game. - B1ueNew

This is not a movie, it’s a game.

Not suprised that the picture is a Wii U Cover of the game.

24 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.

25 The King of Fighters

Nothing about KOF

26 Pokemon the Movie Kyurem vs the Sword of Justice

Its not a game its just a movie

27 Pokemon Black Victini & Reshiram

I wish the whole Pokemon franchise dies soon!

28 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

29 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

I liked this movie. - B1ueNew

Horrible game, horrible movie!


30 Warcraft

This actually exists?

31 Lara Croft - Tomb Raider

Good Acting But A Big Disapointed

32 Resident Evil: Apocalypse
33 Resident Evil: Extinction
34 Resident Evil: Retribution
35 House of the Dead II
36 The Wizard
37 Silent Hill: Revelation
38 Far Cry

This exists too? Oh please no. - B1ueNew

39 Pokemon 2000
40 Pokemon 4Ever: Movie
41 Pokemon White Victini & Zekrom
42 Pokemon the Movie: Diancie & the Cocoon of Destruction
43 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.

If this counts, it is one of the best. - iliekpiez

How is this a video game movie? - MrCoolC

44 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!

Sure if it makes you feel immature to play video games.

Let it go

45 In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale
46 Wing Commander
47 Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life
48 Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
49 Mortal Kombat

The one movie that is based off a specific video game that I like. This movie is a guilty pleasure - iliekpiez

50 Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2
