The Internet seems mostly pleased with Netflix's adaptation of Marvel's Daredevil, effectively erasing the 2003 Ben Affleck film from everyone's memory. Are any video game movies capable of the same reboot?

The first video game film that comes to mind is Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within. Conceptually, it seemed like a good idea. Take Final Fantasy, a series known for (among other things) having a good story and impressive pre-rendered cinematics, and isolate those elements into an experience that lasts just under two hours. Unfortunately, it didn't come together, but maybe it could if its creators were able to explore a Final Fantasy universe over the course of a television show.

What do you think? What terrible video game movies deserve a TV show second chance?
