Well to me Paul W.S. Anderson is something of a dubious genius at Video Game adaptations.
The RESIDENT EVIL films were each low budget action movies but have combined for over 1 billion dollars in gross receipts. I watched only RESIDENT EVIL: THE FINAL CHAPTER and it was… “easy viewing”. It had nothing to do with the game, but at the same time I didn’t find it offensive at all.
Anderson is also famous for having done the film adaptation of MORTAL KOMBAT, whose influence is so sublime, you can trace a lot of the modern design cues in the game MORTAL KOMBAT X to Anderson’s film.
I think I can kind of guess, based on what he said, what kind of Monster Hunter movie we’re getting and I think it’s going to work, but will definitely have nothing to do with the games except key gags like the battle with humongous monsters, the outrageous armor and weapons, and maybe even a comedy scene about cooking meat. But I think we can expect the little cat people will not be showing up for this one.
And… yes… Milla Jovovich will be in it. lol.
