Yea, i know I'm shocked too! A story based on an epic adventure about awesomeness could actually be turned into a good movie? SHOCKING! How? Well simple. But first, let’s take a look at the two routes a movie can go: the first route AKA the Hitman: Agent 47 route and the second route aka the Final Fantasy 7: Advent children route.
The first route is the harder one, and it requires making something very different, with only the extremely basic stuff being the same, with the rest being a new story and stuff like that. This can also serve as a new story that could further advance the game's story,and it could serve as a prequel to the original,but we will,well actually I will get to that later!
So,about the Hitman route,you see Hitman grossed fairly well,due to explaining everything to you,and explaining stuff that the fan already knows,and for that reason doesn't want to watch it so he,you know,doesn't. This way it can serve as an advertisement for people who never played Hitman,and might try and get into it. Now,you might say that it has no point,but again,it COULD use as advertisement,and as someone who never played Hitman i enjoyed watching Hitman:Agent 47,and it actually made want to buy Hitman:Blood Money which i enjoyed! Because this is a first and foremost gaming website most of you,if not all of you,will disagree with me!
Then there is the second route which is (much) easier,do to just being MAD EFFING FAN SERVICE! There isn't much needed to explain and you just need to make very little stuff up,but here is the bummer,and the reason these movies don't get made very often: they are rarely successful! For that reason,most movies take the Hitman route and fail,with only a few actually doing it right.
Now here is something i have been thinking about for a couple of years-what if they made a mixed franchise? What i mean by that,what if they make a movie and instead of making a shitty game adaptation,a year or two later,they make a sequel to the movie in the form of a game or vice versa! Then maybe they could make an expansion pack/DLC that would further the story in the form of a 50 to 60 minute movie!
Because video game movies could be good :)
So that was my extremely short blog,and i hope you enjoyed reading :D!
