When it was declared that God of War would be slaughtering its way to the big screen, I balked at the idea. Don't get me wrong, I love the games. How can you not loving flaying man and beast with the Blades of Chaos, arguably the most extravagant and dynamic weapon system of the current generation of games? The problem is, I think it would be incredibly hard to bring all the ridiculous excess of the games to the big screen convincingly. It could be done, sure, it just would require an incredibly talented director and a mountain of cash.
Or, if you're Gamervision, you just adapt God of War like it's a quirky indie comedy. Check out the trailer for just such a film below.
