  • Apperantly there is a Just Cause movie in the making so how much do you think its gonna suck ?

    Atleast if the plot sucks it will be justified though.

    • I'm kind of obligated to insist that it won't "suck" at all and that it will instead probably be the most awesomest movie ever.

      The most recent mention of it is from a half a year ago. Hitman 47 didn't earn too much money, so they may have cancelled it.

    • Wrong director. Should have been Bay.  (Joking)

      When will this take place though? In between JC2 and JC3? After JC3?

        Loading editor

    • According to one of the sources (all sources are listed at the bottom of the page), the plot is still secret (probably still not complete), but it's very unconfirmedly rumored to be about Rico having some conscience issues during a mission for the Agency. That means that it can only fit the timeline some time before JC3. ...Unless he's still working for them after JC3? But why would that be? Surely he'd have a well paying job as the new Medici commander of armed forces and top secret agent, right? ...Unless he would consider a partnership at Frigo and Etcetera to be more lucrative.

      But seriously, do not take any plot rumors seriously this early. Many movies have had their plots remade at the last moment. The Star Wars R1 was said to actually be finishes when it was sent back to be partly refilmed and stuff.

    • Now seems to be a good time to finish a JC movie, as all a video game movie is is an hour or more long ad

    • This is a bad idea for many reasons. 

      1. Creative differences. Many video game movies have directors with different visions such as Street Fighter: The Movie directed by Steven D. de Souza who didn't play nor know the lore of Street Fighter at all, yet was chosen and made one of the worst movies in existence. Video Game movies rarely or never resemble the source material at all.

      2. May not convert well to film. It's generally known that Films follow a time-tested three act system whereas Video Games don't, they're interactive, you move Rico in a video game but you can't move Rico in a film because he's sentient and played by an actor. More information will be at this GameSpot article: http://www.gamespot.com/articles/one-professor-attempts-to-explain-why-video-game-movies-are-always-bad/1100-6418987/

      3. All game movies suck like literally. 

      The Just Cause Movie (if it's ever made) will suck and will just a cash grab by Hollywood it's time for people to stop watching them and eventually Hollywood will go bankrupt.

      Ever heard of Halo: The Flood? It was a book adaptation of the first Halo game, and they got it right, because I could recognize where in the actual game Master Chief was at all times. For example the book would say "He turns the corner and encounters a Zealot with an energy sword," and I would think of the exact same Zealot they're talking about in the Silent Cartographer.

      They pulled it off with a book, they can certainly try with a movie.

      Also, remember Hardcore Henry? I watched it and it was pretty nuts and didn't take itself seriously. I liked it for that, so I suppose they did manage to get simply "A movie in first-person" right.

      In my opinion, if could choose the genre of the film it would be a parody. We shouldn't forget one of the objectives of JC1: make a joke of action films. So, in my opinion, the film should have a lot of explosions and high levels of humour, but especially it should be a parody of action films.

    • Game movies are not necessarily all bad. ...In the sense that they don't have to be bad.

      I would attempt to identify some of the fundamental problems faced by young people today and suggest possible solutions to these problems:

      • If the movie is made by incompetent people who've never played the games themselves, then it's obviously impossible for it to turn out well.
        • Game developers can't make a movie themselves (normally), because they lack the high-end equipment and cinematography (or whatever) education to do it in a way that would result in a good movie. This is why they need to hire professional movie makers. And that's where the problems start. People who make movies are not gamers, so of course they're at best gonna watch a couple of game cut-scenes and get a 10 minute briefing about the general gist of the games theme. And on top of that, the movie people are normally allowed to take all sorts of creative liberties that can only result in further alienation of game fans.
        • Example: The Agent 47 movie was terrible. According to critics (and I have to agree), the movie did not at all make the audience care about the mr 47 and his cause. Like, I get that in the games he never talks and never shows emotions, but this sort of thing is terrible in a movie. There are probably ways for them to have made even that work, but they missed every opportunity to make it a good movie. Examples: The movie featured other numbered agents of the same origin. Problem: They all looked the same and behaved the same. It would have made an infinitely better story if they all would have been different and with different personalities. Or if they had to be clones, then the audience would need something to distinguish him by, something that makes nr. 47 special and memorable. Like what if he, unlike the others, is more effective at his job because unlike usual clones, the cloning process had a glitch with him that gave him a unique ability to actually think (something that normal people have and which was purposely removed from the clones). Like what if even by the end of the movie he would have expressed an emotion. Even a little, just to distinguish him at all. There was no such thing so the audience was obviously left not caring about the story of the random clone.
      • What works well in a game does not necessarily work well in a movie. Games have movie-like cut-scenes, but the majority of an open-world game is under the players control. The players are left with either a good or bad memory of the game because of what they do while playing. Do you really think back on games because of the fun you had while watching cut-scenes? Maybe so, if there was a few funny ones, but mostly no. The story arc of a game is a fundamentally different thing from that of a movie. A game plot can not be turned into a movie with out any changes, unless it's some "corridor"/"rail" game where the player has no real control at all. A movie needs to differ from a game in order to function as a movie.
      • A movie, in order to be successful, needs to be seen as great by not just hardcore game fans (us), but also by people who've never heard of the game series before. The plot should therefore not rely on info that the audience would only understand by having played the games. And this causes a major fundamental conflict: If fans of the games are repeatedly told information that we already know and consider obvious, then it will feel insulting to their (our) intelligence. But if the movie relies too heavily on inside jokes and game references, then it will be confusing and boring to anyone else. The best game references do not need to be spoken of. They don't need to have an effect on the plot, because the plot, whatever that ends up being, needs to be strong enough to carry the movie as its own thing for the wider audience. They just need to be there to tie the movie into the games fictional universe. Example: Fictional vehicles that we'd recognize from the games. If they're too expensive for the move, make few of them. Even 1 would be good enough, if it's adequately well made. Like imagine Rico using the grappler in the movie to parasail behind a car. This would seem like a must-have situation for the movie, but why not go the extra step and make it a Rossi 866 Corral? If he needs to get a heavy drop vehicle in the movie, make it something we already know from the games. It would be a fictional weaponized vehicle no matter what, so make it something we recognize, like a Garret Traver-Z.

      The only way to balance this is to have people of exceptional skill making the movie and make them closely co-operate with the game developers when it comes to any character details.

      Another example of how people of exceptional skill can tell a lot with few to no words: Remember the opening sequence of Star Wars 7? There's like no talking at all and it gives so much info about the main character and environment and the history of the fictional universe. The crashed large and small space ships; the way the character earns a living by selling parts from the ships; the way her sandstorm mask had the blue eye glasses from an old storm-trooper helmet; the way she knew enough about the ships to get the most valuable parts and how she was well payed for that. It even established that she has the money to leave, but she refused to leave that desert planet, because she was waiting for something.

      This is not a bad idea for many reasons

      Response to 1. - Even if creative differences exist, some of the material still gets in there and is all the more a reference to the stuff in-game

      Response to 2. - Have you not seen Assassins Creed or World of Warcraft? They are still quite good in my opinion

      Response to 3. - All game movies DO NOT suck literally

      The Just Cause movie will not suck

      If you think Hollywood will go bankrupt in the future, then why don't you use these to bankrupt the global economy?

      Also

      Depending upon one's opinion, it may be good or bad

      I'm still sticking to my view that even when it has not been released yet, or even if it is bad, it is still good in my opinion

      None of them winch interests me.

      They will go bankrupt eventually for backstabbing people with their old business model (thank god we have the internet)

      Except for the nuclear missiles part maybe that could happen since the United States' nuclear arsenal is run by outdated computers that still run on floppy disks, I will do a  Criswell impression.

There's no sane reason to buy all new PCs every other year just because Microsoft wants to get payed again. Or do you buy a new 1000 dollar iphone every 6 months? The missile control PCs are NEVER connected to the internet and even if they were, their incompatibility with modern software would make them safe from all viruses. The only danger would be qualified specialists from the enemy side trying to hack them. That's why they stay away from the internet. As far as reliability is concerned, I myself have an old laptop with XP on it. My mom uses it each and every day and guess what? It's fine! I've had to fight off a couple of viruses over the years, but as is to be expected when your mom uses it.

      Chill out, man. In the 1950s it was all about science fiction and/or horror movies. In the 1980s it was all about action movies. Then buddy-cop comedies. Only a few years ago it was all about vampire movies. Now it just happens to be all about comic-book superhero movies. That's a very short list of examples, but you get the idea. The point is that trends in movie types are not everlasting. In a few years it will be something else and everybody will want to cash-in on whatever that will be.

      And remakes have been around since the beginning. Remakes started in the 1920s when they started remaking the earliest 1910s horror movies with better special effect technology.

    • I just noticed something: They can't call it just "Just Cause", because some punks already made a movie with that name in 1995: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Just_Cause_(film) I've actually seen that movie. It's some bad movie that argues against executions as a type of punishment.

    • If the movie really is set just before JC3 (as speculated above) then I have an idea that I'd totally add into it: It would show that Bolo Santosi hijacked the Mile High Club. That would establish that she used that to get to Medici. How she got from north of the wall to Lacos would still be unknown.

      But in any case, some life altering event must have happend to her to change her from the head of a communist paramilitary faction to a DJ.

      Maybe she accidentally drank / was poisoned with some of her own mind control chemicals and Rico advised her to "relax and become a DJ, or something"?

    • @GMRE yeah, that would be pretty fun, but I don't really think that the movie could be about secondary characters and small facts (considered easter eggs by some players) only known to very small auditory... Bad for marketing, I guess. 

      Still, the idea's great. Even though I really upset that this makes reapers victory in JC2 non-canonical. Always choosed them over any other faction. 

        Loading editor
    • I kinda think the Reapers are made to be the best faction. They have the best vehicles, the Fengdings, and the big base, they have two vehicle variants and have the best stronghold vehicles.

        Loading editor
    • They also have the second base - Reapers Hideout. And we don't really know how big their bunker is. It could have tens of rooms for all we know.

      But I would imagine that it's probably more comfortable to live at the Roaches HQ.

        Loading editor
    • I would imagine the safest place to be at the Ular Boys HQ

      They have a Flak Cannon and multiple Miniguns which makes air and sea attack useless

        Loading editor
    • That would be the case if all their enemies know the base locations. With the Ulars, how could anyone not know? They often have shoot outs with the Panau Military patrols, so the panauan navy must be very incompetent not to report it. If we assume those shootings to be random and non-canon then their visibly parked ships would still give it away. It's strange that their temple is so small. As a game developer, I would have added lots more ruins on dry land and in the sea there. That way the 1 temple building wouldn't stand out as much and it would be in the middle of a whole town of ruins.

      I consider their base to be the lamest, because it's the smallest building. We see in one mission that a large part of the building is taken up by a boat garage and they have that big useless gap through the building.

      If we assume that the Roaches are trying to look like legitimate businessmen, then the Roaches HQ is mainly protected by nobody knowing that it's their base there.

      The Reapers HQ is hidden and their bunker is protected from all sorts of weapons. The problem just is that unless the bunker has a second hidden way out, it's kind of a trap.

        Loading editor
    • Well

      The Ular Boys HQ is an island that's practically defensible against both air and sea (because no land route)

      The Roaches HQ looks like something out of a cover for a underground mafia base

      The Reapers HQ well

      They've got a Minigun emplacement on a hill overlooking the "front door"

      I doubt any enemy force could fight its way in unless it was a tank, in which case the Panau Military don't even know how to operate their own Vehicle mounted weapons, so those just turn into battering rams

      And then the SV-1003 Raider just needs a dead gunner to be useless

        Loading editor
    • The Ular Boys HQ is certainly the best armed, but it's just too small. Or is it all a concrete building designed to look like an ancient temple? In that case it still looks like a faction base. Even the Lengkok Sungai Gambler's Den would make a much better faction base.

      • Lots more rooms for people, equipment, random supplies.
      • Is actually very well hidden, even from aerial observation, thanks to its color.
      • Has a well hidden road entrance for a total of 2 entrances.

      It's like the Ulars are fighting an open war in complete defiance of the Panau Military, who they know is too incompetent to attack them there. Well in a way all factions have the open war, but at least the others have hidden bases. The Ulars might as well put a big sign on their base that says "Attack here ->".

    • I had this idea for a plot of the Just Cause movie. It's similar to Just Cause 4: Sakaku in which Rico doesn't overthrow a dictator, rather, he prevents a dictator from coming to power.

      It takes place in the Philippines, in a political crisis. In this movie, Marcos didn't rise to power and Duterte didn't become president either.

      In this Philippines, there's a conflict between Democrats and Conservatives in the parliament and a civil war (A different war, not the Battle of Marawi. That didn't happen either) between M-20 and The Armed Forces.

      The M-20 is secretly led by a Filipino general who not only manufactured the political crisis but also the civil war.

      Yep, the civil war and the crisis were part of a plot for a coup d'etat. Tom Sheldon, Rico, and Maria are sent to shut down the civil war. However, Rico discovers the plot and seeks the general so he can foil his plan.

      Or, they could just have a movie where Rico goes to a nation with his friends and intend to overthrow the dictator.

    • I like your idea. Or something like a spy movie, finding out information about a possible war our coup. I don't want it to turn into James Bond like: Hey!

      They already said that it's about Rico, who's a secret agent and who has doubts about his mission. To me that seems like saying that it takes place before the events of JC3 when he was still working for the Agency. For some reason he decided not to anymore, which is why he's on his own in JC3. Also, he seemed to have a distrust of Tom right away. Something he did not in JC2.

      To me, I always thought that the Agency and Tom were involved some secret conspiracy and then Rico discovered it. I don't know what happened afterwards but it did make Rico more distrustful of Tom and the Agency. That's at least my theory.

      There should be a way through which Rico fires the grappling hook. Like a...I don't know but there should be something.
