As a self-proclaimed video game junkie, it came as no surprise that director Paul W.S. Anderson's biggest success came from adapting a popular game for the big screen with "Mortal Kombat" (1995). Based on the controversial, violent and popular arcade and console series, "Mortal Kombat" raked in over $70 million at the box office and further opened the door for Anderson to adapt games into movies. But more importantly, the film allowed Anderson to perfect his hallmark style of interesting visual settings and rapid-fire editing, which he put to good use in "Resident Evil" (2002) and "Alien vs. Predator" (2004), which helped cement his reputation as a director of action-packed eye-candy.
