Far Cry (2008) is based on a video game of the same name, and is a low on logic, high on action type adventure. Til Schweiger (Inglourious Basterds) is Jack Carver, an ex-special operations soldier, who now runs a charter boat, somewhere in the northern pacific area. Seattle based journalist Valerie Cardinal (Emmanuelle Vaugier) hires Jack to take her to an island where she plans to meet with her uncle Max Cardinal (Ralf Moeller). Max, an old friend of Carver, is working at a secret facility on the island, run by Dr. Lucas Krieger (Udo Kier), who is trying to develop some kind of super soldier. Carver takes Valerie to the island, but armed mercenaries commanded by Katja Chernov (Natalia Avelon), capture Valerie and destroy his boat. Carver strikes back boldly, rescuing Valerie, and then escaping in a wild chase that ends with a helicopter crashing into the water with Carver's vehicle attached.

A fantasy not meant to be taken seriously, the strength of the film is definitely the action and fighting scenes. The tightly executed initial chase is probably the action highlight of the film, and features good interaction between Schweiger and Vaugier. To add a few laughs, Carver is later teamed up with Emilo (Chris Coppola), "the food guy", for a nicely done boat chase sequence. The big finish is an extended fight in the facility, that has some good moments. Til Schweiger is quite good as the tough, brooding, silent type, but the attempts at humor fall a little flat most times.

Creation of an ultimate fighting machine has been done before (Universal Soldier comes to mind), and featuring white skinned ubersoldiers, Far Cry is just not that interesting.

Having played Far Cry and enjoyed the game's story, I had high expectations of this movie. Unfortunately, the writers didn't stay true to the original story, and the directing was below average at best.

This is the first film that I've seen by Director Uwe Boll, who apparently is a magnetic for criticism. So while I know virtually nothing about his past work, I do know that Far Cry came off as something shot for cable TV.

As far as the story, I was incredibly disappointed with the changes made to the original. Changing the setting from a South Pacific Island chain to the coast of Canada was the first mistake. It's bizarre that they make a point to keep Jack Carver in the same tropical shirt as the game, but in chilly Canada instead of the tropics. While Carver is portrayed by the experienced Til Schweiger, it makes absolutely no sense that the character was rewritten as a German soldier.

Emmanuelle Vaugier is exceptionally hot as Valerie Cardinal, but that does little to redeem the character being rewritten as a journalist instead of a secret agent. The biggest shame is that there are no Trigens in the film, only bulletproof mutant soldiers that look like seasick versions of the Incredible Hulk.

I'd hardly consider this film even worth a rental. If you're like me, and you enjoyed playing the original Far Cry game, you will more than likely dislike this movie. Which is a real shame, because the original story had so much potential.

That's right everybody, Uwe Boll has struck again. The director known for adapting video games into horrible films such as House of the Dead, Alone in the Dark, and Blood Rayne is here again this time around with a take on Far Cry, and while the end result is nothing as bad as the previously mentioned films, it doesn't amount to a whole lot either. Til Schweiger (Inglorious Basterds) stars as Jack Carver, an ex-soldier turned boat tour guide who, along with a reporter (Emmanuelle Vaugier) searching for her uncle (Ralf Moeller), are captured and taken prisoner on a remote, mysterious island where a mad scientist (Udo Kier) is conducting genetic experiments. The action sequences are stale up until the end of the film, and while there also manages to be some surprisingly nicely done chase sequences (for a film by Boll that is), Far Cry still barely manages to be a step or two above ScyFy Channel quality for the most part. The comedic moments that come about aren't funny one bit, but thankfully Schweiger plays it straight enough, and is probably the best leading man that has ever starred in one of Boll's films (please don't mention Jason Statham). All in all, Far Cry is certainly not Boll's worst, but considering the fact that his recent flicks like Postal and Seed have shown us a better director is in there somewhere, this film is simply a disappointment, which more than likely isn't a surprise to anyone at all.

Not the game, not a huge Hollywood blockbuster. Now that's out of the way. This film I enjoyed as a film inspired by a game but not fully based on it. You can see things they took from the game, while you can see the changes as well. Uwe is not the best director but if you pay attention you can tell he tries to incorporate some similar things from the games in his films. This is probably one of the few films by Uwe I watched and enjoyed a bit. Of course if your a fan of the games you won't probably like that. Because many gamers stay locked up playing games with no life other than that. So when its not the same they complain.
