While there are (arguably) worse than good movie adaptations of games, there are some out there that are fun despite the pitfalls of the genre. When the trailers emerge for the Dynasty Warriors movie before his theatrical output in China and Hong Kong it has certainly shown some potential; it was produced by HMV Digital China and had several delays before finally arriving this year.
Earlier this month Netflix confirmed that it would be adding the film to its services in Asia, and last week word got out that it will also be coming to territories such as the United States and the United Kingdom on July 1st; It’s a sold out weekend, isn’t it?
It looks like a fun movie, with certainly low-budget effects, while still tackling the crazy scale of combat in the Musou games. At least watching the movie you can save your Y button from damage by putting together combos in a game like Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity.
Thinking of checking this out on Netflix?
