| Why such bad ratings?
Maybe it led people to believe it had something to do with the game franchise, saw it and felt helpless after. But that's not the movie's fault. Even thought the title was poorly chosen it would be wrong to misjudge it for the gaming franchise. Any good action-lover would mark it as a decent watch. It had Til Schweiger and Emmanuelle Vaugier. Also to be mentioned, Craig Fairbass. Udo Kier playing a part in the movie. Follow up his previous films. The movie runs very fast, it doesn't lag. Keeps you engaged and entertained. Why I rated this in its mediocrity is when I saw this had a budget of $30,00,000. It left me shocked with the feeling that it could have done so much better. Where did all that money go? It leaves you wondering and disappointing.

Trivia

Video game-to-movie enthusiast Uwe Boll had already acquired the film rights to Far Cry the video game from Crytek before the game was even released (and subsequently became a smash hit, spawning several sequels), which explains how such an unsuccessful director had been given permission by Crytek to handle such a anticipated project. The film was budgeted at £30 million but took in less than $1 million at the box-office.


Quotes

Dr. Krieger: You're just a simple boat man.
Jack Carver: I didn't say anything about being simple.


Goofs

While mercenaries chase down Valerie and Jack with boats, Parker's pistol is shown to be empty in close shot (slide is locked to back-position). In the next cut the weapon is reloaded again (slide is where it is supposed to), but in the next shot immediately after it the gun is empty again.


Alternate Versions

German theatrical version was precut by the distributor before submission to the FSK. The submitted version with reduced violence was rated "Not under 16". This was done because they anticipated the film would be rated "Not under 18". However, when the film was submitted to the FSK in its uncut form for home video, the film was rated "Not under 16", too, meaning the precut version was completely unnecessary (because the guidelines for home video are more severe than for theatrical releases).
