Wouldn't a Need For Speed movie, essentially be the same as the Fast & Furious franchise?

They are completely different media with different standards of storytelling.

If you make a movie and try to make it like the game, it will suck. Period.

This is how our impressions of video game movies are formed.

For instance...

Super Mario Brothers.

GREAT MOVIE. I don't give a **** what kids these days say. The game cannot be made into a movie, so they didn't. They just took elements and ran with them.

Resident Evil.

Decent movie. They didn't make Resident Evil the Game the Movie. They took elements and ran.

Mortal Combat.

One of the worst movies ever made. Lets simulate the game experience in a movie... lol. Just doesn't work.

Edit- I forgot to say that if you expect what a movie can't be, you'll be disappointed.

So, what do you think they need to do to make this movie a critical success?

Ok,i'll give you that. Nice eye-candy,but,those movies made no sense and had absolutely nothing to do with the game-story.
