Lame because: For some reason Hitmanchose to focus on the non-killing scenes instead of the scenes where the hitman, you know, hits people. And for some reason Resident Evil: Extinctionkind of did the same thing.

How to turn it around: This is a tough one because so far, not a single movie based on a video game has been any good. (The first Resident Evil is a possible exception, depending on who you ask. Not if you ask me, though.) The best of them are chock-full of action -- but it often feels like watching someone else play a video game, i.e., not nearly as fun as playing it yourself. Maybe the answer is to give up and make movies based on other things.

Next up: Please make better choices!
