Based on the Xbox One exclusive Ryse: Son of Rome, The Fall is a four part live action film that proves one thing – not all game-based films have to suck.
I’ll admit that when Microsoft mentioned a live action Halo series back at E3 2013, I groaned a bit, but after watching The Fall I’m actually excited to see how they run with it.
What did you guys/gals think? Marius is a bit scrawnier than his in-game counterpart, but I thought the acting was convincing and it stayed true to the game itself. It reminds me a lot of the Spartacus series, with the contrasting colors and its method of storytelling.
