Still, it's just one of several game-inspired movies to come out this year, along with Ratchet & Clank, Angry Birds, and Assassin's Creed. By all accounts, it has disappointed at least critically (if not commercially) - much as Super Mario Bros., Doom, Mortal Kombat, Resident Evil, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, and Street Fighter disappointed before it.
Indeed, the list of video game-to-movie abominations is as long as a vestigial fat-tube hanging from a Subtle Simon. And that's a real long thing! Wibble-wobble.
Here are ten further game-o-movies that you possibly didn't even know existed - none of which we've even seen. Consequently, anything we tell you about them is, at best, guesswork.
Despite the lack of iconic blue dress in the above image - she's wearing "a pair of browns" - we're assuming the floater above is indeed Chun-Li. We make the following bonus assumption: she has contracted a real bad cold, which causes her to hover and rotate involuntarily in alleyways. Her boyfriend - let's call him 'John' - spends most of the film attempting to bash her to the ground with his special shovel, 'Johns-son'.
"Get down from there, Chun-Li," he shouts. "I hate all this hovering!"
"I can't stop," sighs Chun-Li. "Incidentally: I love you, John."
"Yes, yes... I love you too."
What's he looking at? A mirror. He's practicing his sweet moves in the woods. Just like you do in the video game, Far Cry.
"I look good today," says John. "Shame about my eyebrow and dirty black shirt. I'm the number one top handsome boy on the continent of Pangea."
"I'm John," says John Candy, apropos nothing.
Judging from the above still, it tells the story of a woman - let's call her 'Joan' - who enters the World Doner Championships. She hopes to win the prize for creating the biggest doner kebab of all time (seen to the right of the above image). Very soon she will begin to slice the kebab leg. Soon, she will have victory over all the kebab artisans on the continent of Pangea.
"Die, oh mocking sky-ball," gargles 'John' as he takes aim with his gun. "Ha ha! I shoot you out of the ether! I shoot you, you bloody moon!"
"Where do crows go to listen to trance music and eat ecstasy? Rave(n)s!"
What are they doing in the image above? Perhaps they are attending a rally for the presumptive Republican nominee for the presidency, Mr Donald Trump.
No... wait. Two of them are black, so that can't be it.
The movie explores the notion put forward by the Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger: "The only possible alternative is simply to keep to the immediate experience that consciousness is a singular of which the plural is unknown; that there is only one thing and that what seems to be a plurality is merely a series of different aspects of this one thing…"
Unbeknownst to Jammy, some kids filmed her on their phones, and uploaded the footage to YouTube! She becomes known as the rudest woman in all creation, and is sentenced to 7 months hard labour in the Marmalade Commissary.
"I have the entire mainline British rail network tattooed on my face," he hisses to the woman in the picture above. "Choo choo!"
