It's slick looking. Little bit gory. But I still think it looks like pretty standard issue "video game as movie." But then I never "got" the original game. But maybe that was because I'd spend a lot of my break time at Notre Dame watching the kids play it on a HUGE screen, but they weren't trying to beat the game, they were trying to get all the Easter Eggs (which does make the game look pretty laughable - the paper dolls and the birthday cake and what not). So maybe I'm prejudiced to think the game/movie is a farce.
