3.0 out of 5 stars Jack Carver's island escapade . . . September 5, 2010
Format:DVD
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Awful Adaptation of a Story with Potential March 22, 2010
By Compay
Format:DVD
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars I Far Cried April 16, 2013
Format:DVD
You know what's even worse than an Uwe Boll movie? An Uwe Boll movie where he tries to do COMEDY.

And unfortunately that is what Boll did in "Far Cry," yet another loose adaptation of a video game. When he isn't boring his audience with awkward insta-romance and truly abysmal action scenes, Boll attempts to make us shoot ourselves with the least funny comedy I have ever seen. This is comedy that makes you cry instead of laughing.

Journalist Valerie Constantine (Emmanuelle Vaugier) has heard rumors of the evil scientist Dr. Krieger (Udo Kier) being holed up on a small island guarded by soldiers, and suspects something is amiss. Since she's an idiot, she has planted her uncle Max (Ralf Möller) on the island as a spy. Yes, he does get caught.

So Valerie hires Jack Carver (Til Schweiger), an ex-Special Forces soldier who now gives boat tours, to take her to the island. But soldiers immediately attack them, blowing up the boat. And when they try to infiltrate Krieger's stronghold, they quickly discover that he has something worse than just genetic experiments: he's creating unstoppable supersoldiers.

As an action movie, "Far Cry" is actually somewhat better than most of Boll's wretched filmography, but that doesn't keep it from being brain-meltingly bad. There are giant chunks of the plot that are never explained (Carver refusing to admit he was ever a soldier), and massive continuity errors that sometimes occur within the SAME SCENE. Consider when we see a supersoldier's skin deflect a bullet... only to be pierced by a needle two minutes later. Oops.

But what sets this apart from dreck like "Bloodrayne" and "Alone in the Dark" is the comedy. Yes, Uwe Boll is trying to be funny. Intentionally funny. And it is DIRE.

Format:DVD
It says a lot about director Uwe Boll's infamy that his adaptation of a video game as popular as Far Cry remains as obscure as it does, to the point that three years after its release, the DVD only has nine reviews on this website - ten, if you count mine. Having been burned just a few times too many, most viewers just don't seem to bother with his output anymore. It's a bit of a shame, since this is technically one of his better movies. It's still a flawed translation - turning the "Far Cry" franchise into Universal Soldier on an island - but it's predominantly just a fairly inoffensive action movie. It's boring, sure, but even that's an improvement for Dr. Boll.

The story: ex-special forces soldier Jack Carver (Til Schweiger, Inglourious Basterds) ferries journalist Valerie Cardinal (Emmanuelle Vaugier, CSI: NY) to a Canadian island in pursuit of a story that will lead them to discover the genetic experiments of a nefarious scientist (Udo Kier, Blade).

I won't go on too much about the film's unfaithfulness to its source material, since the basic premise is surprisingly similar for a Boll flick, but just don't expect any mutated monsters -just pale soldiers with black eyes and super strength.

3.0 out of 5 stars More of a B movie, but not that bad of a movie.
Yes, this wasn't the greatest movie ever made, but it was different, and while it did not look the same as the video game, they did a good job with making it what became of it. Read more
