    Let's be honest here, given the LOOOONG history of video game movies, that is highly unlikely.
    This is the main reason, in my opinion. Not everyone played as the default character, nor did everyone play the game the same. This isn't some linear game, with a specific lead character. This game has way too many options, both in character customization, and in character interaction, that the movie has no "definitive" story to base itself on.

    So, taking those things out, you will be left with a hollow shell of a sci-fi/action movie, with some occasional nods to the game world. It's lined right up for mediocrity from the start.

    True but everyone has seen the trailers and comercials so they get what Sheppard looks like and in my opinnion that perfect look is Fox.

    also Seth Green for Joker is a must too :)

    Sure, the default Sheppard. But, I didn't play as default, nor did any of my friends. And we all acted differently in the game, as well. Will the movie have Sheppard as more "Renegade" or "Paragon" in his/her actions? So many different ways that people could have done things, how do you specify which is "correct" for the movie storyline? What type of character will they be? What armor and weapons will they use? This isn't a Gears of War movie, where we have specific characters going through a specific, predetermined story, with premade cutscenes and dialogue.

    Don't get me wrong. I really enjoy the world of Mass Effect. But, the reason I love it is SPECIFICALLY because I can personally interact with it, how ever I want. The minute you take all that away, you end up with just another sci-fi/action movie, loosely based on a game, that fails miserably. I don't want to see that happen to this game. Sadly, it seems it will.
    :rolleyes:

    Seth green is the voice of joker in the games. He is also doctor evils son and his speakers blow the clthes off of women.

    Thinking back on Doom, I see a Mass Effect movie as great potential for a blockbuster or a gi-normous bomb. We'll have to wait and see. :)

    I don't like this. Mass Effect is a story made to be told as a video game, not a movie. It just isn't Mass Effect if you can't make a billion decisions that all have consequences.
