Isn't the game basically an interactive movie. I guess I don't see the point in making the movie. I mean, I will watch it. And probably enjoy it. I just don't see the point other than money.

Not at all. It's... cinematic sure, but when someone calls a game an ''interactive movie'' I think of stuff like the modern Telltale adventure games or Quantic Dream's stuff. The Last of Us has a lot of gameplay in there.

That said, its highly cinematic nature and its, what I consider to be, perfect weaving of story and gameplay make such a direct movie adaptation about as pointless as a Max Payne movie. But money and all that, so. Its intended audience likely isn't for people who played the game in any case.

When I think "interactive movie" I think of David Cage games or Telltale's stuff, not the kind of cinematic, stealth, survival, third person action game that The Last of Us is. Though while I don't agree with your terminology, I do agree that the movie doesn't seem like a great idea.

It reminds of Avatar: The Last Airbender. The show was phenomenally brilliant and there was absolutely no need for an adaptation. I feel like the best case scenario for The Last of Us is a good film that isn't as good as the game and the worst case is what happened with The Last Airbender film (ruined by needless changes, trying to fit the story in a running time 1/10 of the source material, bad casting, and horrible acting).

I love this,

You guys posted 6 minutes apart but had exactly the same points, referencing completely different properties to support your claims and presenting it in the same two paragraph structure........
