1.) It's not based on an NES game. The NES game was just a port of the arcade game.
2.) The movie has it all wrong. The monsters aren't supposed to be mutated animals. They were humans that turned into huge beasts. When you died in the game, you turned back into a human: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Au7UYaqpJw8#t=2m31s
3.) I love Dwayne Johnson as much as the next guy, but can this mother****er NOT be in every goddamn movie, please? Sheesh. I'm on Rock burnout over here already.

The game was fun for about 6 minutes before it became repetitive and boring...

so if course it makes sense to turn it into a movie

From the director of San Andreas... Didn't that movie flop horribly? Only redeeming quality was Alexandra Daddrio's awesome cleavage.

It was entertaining but it certainly wasn't a masterpiece.

Digging all the giant monster genre making a come back. Loved Godzilla as a kid. The recent Godzilla, King Kong, Pacific Rim, Cloverfield etc movies have been good.

Kinda where I'm at. I enjoyed the monster remakes mostly. The new Kong was a bit overdone. I just saw this trailer and thought...well there's another 2hrs on Netflix I'll never get back.

I'm a pretty lenient moviegoer. San Andreas was pretty horrible, which means this one is also likely to be ....equally horrible.

The game also had no save or password feature, so to beat it you had to do it all in one session.

One Christmas break when I was a kid, my brother in law and I decided we were just gonna beat the MFer. After an hour or two we were somewhere near level 100 (I think there are 118 levels in the game) - anyway, my dog goes walking by the TV and her wagging tail HIT THE RESET button on the NES!!!! FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU

So we locked the dog upstairs and started over. We ended up beating it, and the ending f*cking sucked. Something along the lines of - "CONGRATULATION - DO IT AGAIN!"

EDIT: 128 levels in the game

I remember getting to the end of Ikari Warriors and we couldn't beat the last boss/stage. I took the game outside and smashed it with a hammer.

We did this with Maximum Carnage. Such a BS game. Threw it in the pool, stomped it into some rocks, wacked it with a hammer.

Then proceeded to put it back in the rental cart and dropped it off at Wegmans grocery store when they used to rent games/movies.

True story: my mom's cousin was a designer/artist on the original arcade game. He also worked on Arch Rivals and General Chaos.

Yup. Brian Colin is his name.
He's also in the White Castle Hall of Fame for some reason.

Heh. Well, thank him for me if/when you see him. I spent many hours playing his games back in the day. They're also in my mame library though he might not care about or like that. It's a real shame about how game devs rarely ever see royalties.

I think my friend and I used Ikari Warriors for .22 target practice. It's probably the most frustrating video game I've ever played.

This movie looks terrible.

Silly bacdoc, everyone knows there aren't any guns in Chicago. They're illegal.
