It was only a matter of time before the First-Person shooter was translated into film. With Hollywood desperately trying and consistently failing to cash-in on the multi-billion dollar video game industry, it makes sense to try and pursue a different avenue to exploit its popularity. On the surface this seems like a fun premise which, if done right, could at least make for some daft entertainment, and even perhaps allow for some unique story-telling. The result however is far from the mark, and insults the video games which have utilised the format for far more inspired and absorbing material.
