Video game movies have come a long way. Once cheap and cheerful spin-offs, now movie studios are watching the success of comic book adaptations and realizing there's a whole universe of amazing stories just waiting to be shared with a new audience. The very best video game movies manage to capture the magic of the stories they plunder and shine a new light on the characters we love and hate.

  George Lucas' original plans for the Star Wars soundtrack involved classical music, not John Williams John Williams may not have been the first choice for Star WarsThe legendary composer changed the pop culture landscape with everything from the iconic "Imperial March" to the blast of the trumpets heard during the main theme at the beginning of every instalment in a galaxy far, far away. Creator George Lucas, though, originally had another idea according to a recent interview with Williams.

Here is the Top 10 Best Video Game Movies of All Time Please Like, Share & Subscribe! 10. Ratchet and Clank (2016) 9. Silent Hill (2006) 8. Final Fantasy

Video game movies have been around since Super Mario Bros. in 1993, and they have had very mixed success over the years. It has never been a better time to be a video game movie fan. These are the best video game movies .

This list of the ten best celebrates everything for the comedically adorable Detective Pikachu to the psychologically scarring Silent Hill, and even the 2020 adaptation of Sonic the Hedgehog that seemed to be going so very wrong, before a massive visual overhaul changed everything. Whether you want a dose of nostalgia or a look at what's hot in video game movies, check out the list below.

10. Ratchet and Clank

Despite only being released in 2016, it seems time has forgotten Ratchet and Clank’s movie debut. Yes, it made a loss and, yes, it’s packed with weird casting choices (Sly Stallone appearing in a Ratchet and Clank movie is a sentence I thought I’d never have to type) but it’s actually not that bad once the retooled origin story is let to stand on its own two feet.

Shia LaBeouf's new movie The Tax Collector called "atrocious" and "barely coherent" in brutal reviews

  Shia LaBeouf's new movie The Tax Collector called "About as fun as having your face dragged across asphalt."Starring Shia LaBeouf as a 'tax collector' called Creeper – tattooing his chest for the role – he roams the Los Angeles streets with Bobby Soto's David Cuevas for crime lord Wizard, hoovering up profits from local gangs.

But video games don't seem to be able to make the transition quite as well . In fact, most video game movie adaptations suck. That's just a fact. Even several of the following movies aren’t of the highest caliber, but they’re the best of an average bunch, so us gamers will have to make do.

The best video game movie is Silent Hill. Click to expand Silent hill 2. I love it the adaptation of SH3. My first thought was there isn’t even 10 decent game adaptations much less 10 to make a “ best of list.” When I got to Prince of Persia on the list and the first thing the writer mentioned was

It may lack the charm and humour of the PlayStation platformers and it’s definitely not Pixar-level when it comes to the animation, but it’ll kill 90 minutes. As much of a backhanded compliment that sounds, it’s really not: Ratchet and Clank is an energetic family-friendly movie that delivers on bringing the unique pairing of a Lombax and a robot to the big screen – and makes it fun. Imagine that.

9. Silent Hill

Sure, it’s needlessly clunky in places but it certainly bring the chills. In hindsight, Silent Hill was a perfect fit to cut through the thicket of below-average video game movies that seemed to come out every few months in the mid-‘00s. Packed with a decent cast (including a rare sight: Sean Bean surviving!) and more than its fair share of scares, Silent Hill may not stack up to its horror peers but, for a video game effort, it’s more than good enough. Bonus points for including Pyramid Head; just as terrifying (perhaps more so) than its video game counterpart and a sight that will be sure to have you hiding behind the sofa long after the credits roll.

8. Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within

Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within shouldn’t work. Boasting Hollywood actors that, normally, would just be there to pick up a paycheque, a look that leans too heavily on then-new technology, and focusing a brand-new story in a beloved franchise, Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within takes all of that and somehow squeezes it into one of the best video game movies to date. It may look a little sterile now but, at the time, The Spirits Within was a genuine marvel, with a fittingly bananas Final Fantasy plot for good measure.

In many senses, then, it pays due respect to its source while leaping forward in ways that video game movies of the past (and future, let it be said) were only too keen to remain stagnant in. If nothing else, let this risk-taking serve as a lesson: The Spirits Within should be the definitive template for how to make a very solid video game movie: be different and always be daring.

7. Mortal Kombat

Not all video game movies have to be good to be worthy of a place on this list. Perhaps the best example of this is Mortal Kombat, a cheesy retelling of the events of the original game that is heavy on the action and goes all-in on the groan-inducing lines that are still memes a quarter of a century later.

  Netflix announces a second series of Criminal is coming soon A second series of the gripping detective drama is on the way.What might have initially draw UK viewers in at first was Criminal’s seriously impressive cast, which included David Tennant, Hayley Atwell and Katherine Kelly, but in fact there’s so much more to the series, which approaches police drama in a unique way.

Making a good video game film should be easy. There's normally great source material so all you have to do is find a way to make that work on the big screen.

For better or worse, though, it sticks to the source material throughout. That means larger-than-life characters, overblown rivalries, and some sickening fatalities. You haven’t lived until you’ve seen a man’s skin melted away and their skull chopped in two, let me tell you. If you’ve got friends over and have had a few drinks, you won’t find a much better way to kill 90 minutes than with the 1995 Mortal Kombat movie.

6. Warcraft

World of Warcraft was just ripe for being picked up by Hollywood. Being brushed aside as Lord of the Rings-lite, Blizzard’s jewel in the crown is packed with lore in abundance and it’s all guided under the steady hand of indie darling Duncan Jones. It’s not only the best-performing video game adaptation of all-time (as of writing) grossing $433m, it chooses to give the world of Warcraft (heh) a pedestal to stand on – and it is beautiful.

The film does fall down by over-egging the pudding under the creaking weight of its ensemble but it’s still an outlier in the video game movie world: a movie that isn’t scared to take a chance, chuck a massive budget at an acclaimed director and just letting him run riot with the world. More of that, please.

5. Sonic the Hedgehog

The early signs for the Sonic the Hedgehog movie didn't look good. Fans reacted badly to initial designs for the blue blur, so much so that the filmmakers went back to the digital drawing board. When the movie was finally released this year, it won over audiences with Ben Schwartz's enthusiastic voice-over work and Jim Carrey hamming it up as Dr. Robotnik. The movie follows Sonic and a Montana sheriff as they try to evade Robotnik and track down Sonic's iconic rings. Sequels are already planned.

4. Resident Evil

Resident Evil has so many movies (six by our count) that it’s hard to pin a single one down to present a dead cert for this list. They range from the shambling effort that is Afterlife to, this, the original and (probably) the best. It’s streamlined and only pokes around at the edges of Resi’s sprawling lore, and with good reason: the emphasis is on the action. That may grate with some but, back in 2002, a slow-burn experience through a mansion just wouldn’t have turned out as kinetic and overly entertaining as this first effort – and it still holds up well today.

Milla Jovovich is exceptional in her role as Alice (and, honestly, doesn’t get enough credit) and the set-pieces come thick and fast. It’s also notable in that it looks to set-up sequels and sprawling universes long because Iron Man heard about the Avengers Initiative. Well worth a re-watch.

3. Assassin's Creed

Assassin’s Creed felt like the moment video game movies stepped into the spotlight for the very first time. Where others were dismissed as oddities or only for a certain audience, Assassin’s Creed attempted to put that all to bed with a compelling take on the eternal struggle between the Creed and the Templar Order.

Starring Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, and Michael K. Williams, Assassin’s Creed is a movie that doesn’t lack for stars. It gives the movie a real legitimacy and it is flanked by an impressive-looking Animus adventure in 15th Century Spain and a parkour-heavy style that pays homage to the series without – as some movies do – going too far on the fan-service. It may have disappointed some fans and filmgoers but give it another go. It soars higher than you might think.

2. Tomb Raider (2018)

Following in the footsteps (and ice pick) of the 2013 rebooted game, Tomb Raider returns to the big-screen by giving us a newly-vulnerable Lara and a movie that – while it doesn’t quite break out into an all-time great action flick – is a welcome homage to one of the finer games of its generation.

While the movie riffs on rather than directly pulls from the games, Alicia Vikander gives us a Lara that is bursting with life and, interestingly, a character who appears more at home in London than raiding the tombs of a lost kingdom. Tomb Raider certainly marks a watershed moment for video game movies: no longer content with being kept to the shadows, this is a forceful entry filled with star talent that might open up the door for even more video game treasures down the line, particularly in the forthcoming Ben Wheatley-directed sequel.

1. Detective Pikachu

Here it is: the best video game movie: The minute we found out Ryan Reynolds – Deadpool himself – would be voicing the fuzzy little yellow guy, we knew Detective Pikachu would do justice to the Pokemon brand. The movie focuses on 21-year-old Tim Goodman, who just wants to find his missing private investigator dad Henry and teams up with Pikachu in the process. Cue lots of CGI, lots of sentimental stuff about family, and – most importantly – enough jokes to tickle a Snorlax.

Goosebumps director Rob Letterman is in charge of an eclectic cast that includes pop singer Rita Ora, Bill Nighy, Ken Watanabe, and the DJ Diplo, but it's the love and care given to the Pokemon world-at-large that stands out most.
