There are always truly terrible films and dreadful video games in their own right, but breeding the two has led to some horrific results. Whether it's films that didn't manage to capture the spirit of its video game inspiration or a film so bad it should never have entered production, there have been some awful attempts at film and video game crossovers.
Despite the success of the Sonic The Hedgehog and Detective Pikachu films, it is important to remember that a lot of these crossovers are uniquely terrible.
While on the surface it may look like a way to bolster a franchise, often the cinematic adventures of video game characters are at best, quickly forgotten, and at worst removed from the canonical world that fans love after leaking money across the production process.
Yet despite the errors that have plagued so many video game films, it seems that studios have been determined to churn out crossover marketing campaigns with the hope of one day getting it right.
With that in mind, let's look at films that lack almost any redeemable qualities and at times manage to make fans lose respect for the characters they once loved.
