    "What makes this particular movie great is how much it sticks to the original game and its characters. This wouldn't be a proper Mortal Kombat movie adaptation if it didn't have great martial arts action sequences and gladly, it does. Definitely one of the best video game movies ever."

    "No one perfectly personifies Lara Croft better than Angelina Jolie and this alone is enough reason why this movie should be on this list. It's not a perfect adaptation but the way it was presented was even better."

    "For the most part, fans and players of the Final Fantasy games will appreciate this movie the most. However, that doesn't mean that it not a good movie for anyone else. Everything from the action sequences, the art direction, and the musical score is done in such an artful way. "

    "This movie has laid so much groundwork that will eventually lead to an entire movie franchise that would develop soon after it. Things like the Nemesis program is one good example. I would far as to say that this is one of the best video game movies that go beyond the actual game that it is based off."

    "Agent 47 has always been portrayed as a cold, calculating, and methodical killer. This movie showcases those traits quite well but we also see a more humanistic side of the assassin as he gets entangled with a woman in a political plot."

    "You could call this movie a reboot but it's also an origin story that the franchise never got around to the first time around. In the end, this movie hinted at what is to come if future installments come and that is enticing news."

    "This movie is full of great action sequences and it takes advantage of its parkour elements to great effect along with nice swordplay. The chemistry between the lead roles is great as well with a mix of playful banter and love/hate relationship."
