25. Re: Deus Ex: Human Defiance Likely a Film Title Mar 2, 2013, 17:04 NKD

Don't be so down, guys. It could be every bit as good as the first Mortal Kombat.

Mortal Kombat is easy to do right though. (Which is why the latter movies sucking was such a shocker.) Deus Ex isn't the pinnacle of writing, it's a bit hamfisted, especially the first one with the polisci copypasta, but it's nuanced and makes an interesting whole. It'd be hard to take Deus Ex and distill it to feature film length while keeping "the magic".

A lot of what makes Deus Ex is the details. The newspapers/datapads laying around, the random comments from the random passers-by. This is stuff that doesn't translate into a screenplay well, or even at all.
