Cliche's or not, this was entertaining and beats out every single game-to-movie made.
Doom was better. Mortal Kombat was better. umm... I got nothing else.
The film itself was incredibly predictable.
"I have to go see my uncle! he'll help me!" = Dude, your uncle is Ben Kingsley, he's not going to help you... (Note, why didn't Kingsley just wear gloves handling the evil poison robe? That way noone works anything out and he wins.)
For some reason the dead dad, kid on the run and evil uncle plot just made me think it was The Lion King.
There were moments watching him run and jump on ledges made me wonder when a spiked pit, or a platform that moves back and forth would appear. We get it, I know he jumps and climbs a lot in the game. No need to turn him into a sodding monkey.
Alfred Molina and the Knife throwing guy were awesome.
It wasn't a horrible film, it was entertainingly bad. They could have done worse and hired Ewe Boll to direct.
