Trivia / Far Cry

The video game:

  • Banned in Germany: A major objection was that corpses are still physics-enabled objects, offending Germany's many zombies. This explains why Crysis has enemy ragdoll physics disable themselves almost immediately on death and why Far Cry 2's animals behave like they're filled with helium.
    • Kinda ironic, considering that it was made by a German developer. However, a censored (but still quite bloody) version is sold freely in Germany.

The film adaptation:

  • Box Office Bomb: Budget, $30 million. Box office, $700,000.
  • Creator Killer: After this movie, the only video game movies Uwe Boll has directed are small-budget sequels to his earlier films; the video game industry had gotten smart on the effect Boll has had on their franchises, which ended his attempts to become the director of Warcraft and a Metal Gear Solid film before he could make said attempts (Blizzard outright told him a movie from him had the potential of being a Franchise Killer to Warcraft).
  • Deleted Scene: The scene featuring Stuttering Craig and Handsome Tom of ScrewAttack was deleted.
  • Direct-to-Video: Though the film did go to theaters in some countries.
  • Genre-Killer: This is one of the last major R-rated films Disney distributed on their own before Dick Cook was shown the door. Disney changed their strategy after purchasing Marvel and all R-rated films made past 2010 were all DreamWorks films.
