Of the ones I've seen, I've enjoyed MK and RE/RE2 the most.

Laugh. Then cry. Then laugh some more.

Olga Kurylenko in Hitman is enough to have me vote it best.

Best? Silent Hill, even though it could've been just a hair better in the acting department.

Worst? Yeah, I'm going to have to go with the second Mortal Kombat flick -- an experience I still want my money back for.

Best would be the Resident Evil movies, although they have branched away from the video games and seem to be their own thing. I enjoyed the first Mortal Kombat as well.

Worst would be Super Mario Bros or the 2nd Mortal Kombat. TallGuyMe is also a pretty shitty movie, but it was also a terrible game too so it was expected.

Man, it's a sad state of affairs when Resident Evil is considered the best of the bunch.

Worst: Hitman. This could have been a great movie about loyalty and redemption, instead we got a pile of crap that I could barely comprehend...

No hate for Dungeon Siege? I can get some enjoyment from watching things like Super Mario Bros and Street Fighter, but Dungeon Siege was tough to sit through.
