"...The idea that games makers can control the process and create great movies... I don't know if that's true or not."
The thing is though when film makers, who aren't familiar with or care about the IP, are given 100% creative control, they lose any connection to the fans of the original. I'm not saying you have to follow the games one-to-one but when it doesn't even slightly match the spirit of what the series/game is, you kinda messed up already. You are able to make a movie that appeals to both fans and "the general audience" alike.
