Not that I necessarily like these movies (except for Silent Hill ^.^), I just thought it be interesting to see the similarities between the original characters and their portrayals, regardless of how good or bad the rest may be.

So, who do you think did the best?
...Or the worst?

Most of these pics were put together by moi, but some others where made by another person online. Sometimes pics take a bit to load, so please let them finish.

I do know I'm missing some characters, so I'll keep updating once I find better, more accurate pics.

Please feel free to comment or make suggestions. Enjoy!

Good list concept. It's pretty cool to see the videogame characters side by side with the actors that played them.

I didn't know there was a live-action Street Fighter and Tekken.

Great idea! Already the Chibi Pyramid Head in the description let me vote for this list. ♥ And it's really interesting to see the two versions of the character in contrast.
I think I'll always be a person who's very picky about screen adaptions of games and tend to prefer the original in every way. But the film makers at least try (sometimes)...
But especially Alessa's portrayel in the film frustrates me so much... =[

Angelina Jolie and Jake Gyllenhaal are perfect casting decisions for these roles.

Bob Hoskins as Mario (Super Mario Bros.)
John Leguizamo as Luigi (Super Mario Bros.)

Jake Gyllenhaal...because it would've been impossible to find one Farsi guy in the entire country who could play that part, or even an Arab guy. Fuck, a Mexican even. Not like your average dumbshit american would know the difference...
