Borderland's story is the most uninteresting thing about it.

This - I bet I could think of 20 other games that'd make better movies off the top of my head.  Still, best of luck to them - they do have lots of great (if not particularly deep) characters in Borderlands, if they leveraged them and then wrote a good story around them maybe?

Alot of people are referring to Mad max being the "Borderlands movie", and i kinda see why haha..

It could be half decent depending on the direction they take but ultimately it WILL be a let down. Honestly dont think there's been a real successful "Game to movie" scenario apart from Prince of Persia and maybe Resident evil (Still going lol).
Unless its an anime movie, that would be the best thing they could do imo.

Im just twiddling my thumbs waiting for the 2 weeks on Sevastapol before Ripley showed up haha. Would make an awesome movie/mini series.

I have a soft spot for Silent Hill. Was an abnormally good production for a game film.

The only promising adaption I can see on the horizon is The Last of Us because there's real creative control being held by Neil Druckmann who made the original what it was and seems an easy move to the cinema in general. Most projects like Borderlands seem setup to fail right from being green lit lol.

I really feel at this point though the whole "game film" is kinda irrelevant as games do so much on their own. The technical level where at, etc. Uncharted is fantastic because you control that action film Indiana Jones moment, not because you watch it. If there ever was a window for Hollywood to get in on a piece of the action with games I think it's already gone, too many failures.
I used to dig the idea when I was younger though.

Yeah - so do I actually, it's a great flick! The second one was okay but didn't quite grab me like the first.
