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.

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.

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.

This is an awesome movie based on one of my most favorite video games, Far Cry. It has good action, some humor, and it sticks pretty true to the original plot of the game. Overall, it is a fun, lighthearted B-movie.

PLOT: Former German special forces operator turned tour boat contractor Jack Carver is hired by journalist Valerie Cardinal to transport her to an island. Her contact has been feeding her information about a scientist named Dr. Krieger who is supposedly performing genetic experiments on humans. Upon arrival Valerie is captured and Jack's boat blown up. Now stranded, they must find a way to escape while fighting off mercenaries and Krieger's greatest creation: genetically modified superhuman soldiers.

RANT: I had never even heard of Uwe Boll before I was deciding wether or not to buy this movie. I looked around the internet and this guy seems to get a lot of crap from raging fanboys. Apparently he is hated because he takes video games and turns them into crap movies. I haven't seen any of his other video game movies so I can't say if they are truly as bad as people claim. He makes B-movies and you have to adjust your expectations when viewing these as they aren't supposed to be box office hits and are generally low budget.

Far Cry is a great B-movie so I gave it five stars because it is highly entertaining and deserves at least three stars. I'm still pleasantly surprised that a Far Cry movie was even made at all. Fans of the game should appreciate Boll's attempt at turning their game into a movie. Wether you think that attempt was a good one or a bad one is up to you. Watch it and judge for yourself.
