Good game.

Horrible movie.

Pretty much the way it always is.

Who plays Marcus Fenix? Baird? Cole and Dom?

I say:
Marcus - Dolph Lundgren (is he still alve)
Baird - Val Kilmer
Cole - Tom Lister Jr
Dom - ??

Any movie with Deebo and Dolph cant be good.:lol:

Well if you remember the blood in 300 it was so cool looking just like in Gears. I think it would work better with some CGI. USe real actors but use CGI for scenery, buildings maybe the Locusts and other stuff.

Well first off, this movie would have to be done in CGI. The men and monsters in that game are WAY to big to be played by normal people and it look right. The other good thing about that would be that you could keep the voices. I mean come on you want someone else other than John DiMaggio (sp) playing Fenix?

The second thing, is that Gears was more game play drivin. Not story drivin. When you start that game you get thrown in, which was cool, right into the middle of something that is going on and have no background story. And what they do call a story in that game is reall hard to follow. Ok sure, your fighting the Lotcus. But how exactly did Fenix's father know how to map their caves? Or why are they called Gears? Or why Fenix was locked up? (and if there is an answer to these question I guess I just missed them) They just threw it out there and hoped you didn't question it. If and when this is made into a movie they really need to sit down with the people at Epic and really get them involved, very much like Bungie is doing with the Halo movie (hence the reason it has stalled, Bungie and Microsoft didn't like what the movie studio was trying to pull). Or it will wind up being another Doom. They will cast The Rock as Fenix.

Don't get me wrong, I am sure over the course of a couple of more games that the Gears storyline will get flushed out, but right now with what little they have to work with, it's a bad time to make a movie based on the game.

worst thing is its not that games can't make a good movie its that horrible directors most of the time pick up the game and make the movie horrible. If a good director, script writer and producer got signed on it then yes it could be a awesome movie.

Vin Diesel as Fenix, and Ving Rhames as Cole.

I actually think Vin Diesel would make a good part. Same with Rhames. Though I kinda like Terry Tate :D
