Il film from Bioshock Sara faithful to video games, because the mythology of the franchise is well done and does not require major interventions. To say it was the director Francis Lawrence, who is working on the making of the film, as announced in February during the presentation of the project of the film.
When it comes to movies or TV series based on video games, the general fear is that unworthy works will always come out, as has almost always happened in the past (but also in the present). One of the problems is that video games revolve more around the gameplay than to narration, so much so that often screenwriters and directors tend to move away from the original material, which is not very usable in a different medium.
The issue is not even so much in the fact that the fans are unhappy with the results, as that often mediocre and personalityless works come out. With Bioshock it will go differently, at least as regards the adhesion to the original mythology, as explained by Lawrence in an interview with the Collider newspaper: “No, I know what you mean. When I think about it, what we talked about earlier comes to mind, namely that I think there are some great video games out there, but they are not supported gives some weighty ideas. Sometimes they look great or something like that, but I think they often end up looking empty because they’re not backed up by real ideas. The thing is, Bioshock is. The whole mythology and that world and ideas from which it was born, there is really a lot. “
We hope that a lot of consideration translates into a great movie.
