    Kinda glad, but it would've been interesting to see how a movie would've turned out. Movies that are based off of games always have the high risk of butchering whatever franchise it may be. >.>

    Christian Bale would have ruined Snake forever. I'm glad this isn't happening.

    i dont know why no one would want this movie but the fact tht MGS is more a gamer type category... to extend it to the movies may have been difficult for them (to advertise and such)

    I thought Metal Gear Solid 4 was often criticised as being a movie, so why would they need to make one anyway?

    Games are more entertaining, and some actually rake in more profit than movies these days.

    I wouldn't mind an MGS movie. If it was bad, I just wouldn't watch it. But I'd rather see new games. I haven't played MGS4 yet (shipping from the UK takes really long this time) but I think it'll become awesome!

    Every fucking game already has like 2 hours of cutscenes, why do we need a movie?

    Not to mention isn't there like "The Document Of" ones where it's just cutscenes strung together?

    Was going to say, people had a movie of MGS last time they played one of the games.

    Have they learned from Doom? Have they learned from Super Mario Bros.? Have they learned from Double Dragon?

    Well its better to be postponed then for it to go on the big screen and turn into stinker like Super Mario Bros movie.

    Well that's one Konami movie that won't get published, looking forward to Castlevania.

    It's not like the game is only 6 hours long like MW2. The game is pretty lengthy. Unless you're really good, this game should at least take up 10 hours of play time on Really Easy (longer if it's your first time). My first completion took me a little under 20 hours. That's the length of a Pokemon game, and maybe Uncharted 2 (U2 was a bit longer I think). My second completion was 9 hours long. But huge time gaps can be said about any game you're completing more than once.

    yeah, those were bad i hope they don't make another one, there is a metal gear fan movie called ''metal gear philantrophy'' (or somenthing like that), i think we don't need a metal gear movie, the game it self is one.
