Have you ever wondered Movies you can currently stream on Disney Plus? Then today is your lucky day, because we include all the movies in our public view.
Compared to its streaming competitors like Netflix or Amazon Prime, Disney Plus currently offers only a small selection of movies with video game templates. Of course, we keep the list updated in case new movies or series are added.
In our GameStar podcast, we discuss why it’s hard to adapt the game to game lovers:
Tomb Raider, Hitman and Vin Diesel
Why game movie mods fail so often
Why do we report on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Disney Plus & Co.?
In addition to video games, the majority of our GameStar community is also interested in streaming. We’ve also noticed that the recommendations made by our editorial team – even beyond games – are always appreciated by you. In the future, we want to give you personalized advice on movies and series and search streaming providers for content that might also be interesting from a player’s perspective.
That’s why, for example, we give you an overview of all the new movies and series on Amazon Prime, tell you which movies you can stream on Disney Plus, or give you expert tips on the best documentaries on Netflix.
Of course, this does not mean that GameStar lose its focus on games. We are a gaming site and we always will be – but thinking outside the box from time to time we hope it’s enriching for you, but of course for us too.
Game Mods for Disney Plus
Hitman – Everyone dies alone
Year of Publication: 2007 | Director: Xavier Jeans | works: Timothy Olyphant, Dougray Scott, Olga Kurylenko | Type: Thriller, Action | Period: 1 hour 33 d
After 20th Century Fox managed to secure the rights to the film, director Xavier Gens attempted to adapt a stealth action series movie about Agent 47, a cold-blooded contract killer. Vin Diesel was originally supposed to play this role. But because he was already committed elsewhere, the main role went to Timothy Olyphant.
What is the matter? In Hitman, Agent 47 (Timothy Oliphant) becomes embroiled in a political assassination attempt and becomes a target of Interpol and the Russian military. Now is the time to find out who wants to get rid of him and why. Attractive Russian prostitute Nika (Olga Kurylenko) does not necessarily make his life easier.
How good is the movie?
- rotten tomatoes: 16%
- Metacritic: 35
For the most part, the first Hitman movie adaptation did not do well with critics. The New York Daily News awards 50 points and writes:
As a standalone movie, it’s just plain monotonous. Olivant […] He’s as menacing as the Master Proper and the action scenes […] Pass without any tension and drama. Hitman is miss.
Todd McCarthy of Variety gave the film just 10 points and took a tougher tone in his assessment:
The Eurotrashy video game is missing its mark by miles. […] Unsuspecting players who have been lured to cinemas will soon wish they could come home […].
However, there were also some positive votes. The Washington Post awards a total of 70 points:
Best movie based on a violent video game we’ve ever seen. […] For us it was an entertaining experience in all respects.
Hitman: Everyone Dies Alone – Trailer for the first 47th action movie adaptation
Hitman: Agent 47
Year of Publication: 2015 | Director: Alexander Bach | works: Robert’s friend, Hana Weir, Zachary Quinto | Type: Thriller, Action | Period: 1 hour 37 minutes
After the 2007 film adaptation of Hitman left audiences with mixed feelings, 20th Century Fox attempted again in 2015 with a reboot of Hitman: Agent 47 starring Robert Friend.
fun facts: Deadly actors Timothy Olyphant and Robert Friend have found their way into Star Wars series like Cobb Fant and the Grand Inquisitor.
What is the matter? In Hitman: Agent 47, a genetically modified man (Robert Friend) stalks a young woman named Katja van Dis (Hana Weir). But there is more to this than initially anticipated. Agent 47 encounters his past with which the girl is directly related.
How good is the movie?
- rotten tomatoes: 8%
- Metacritic: 28
Hitman: Agent 47 got worse results than its predecessor in 2007 from film critics. The Chicago Sun-Times gave it only 38, primarily criticizing the story:
The plot is high-tech Swiss cheese, full of holes and smelling of the contents of last week’s fridge.
James Berardinelli of Reel Views gives 50 points, but he doesn’t have a lot of nice words for the movie either:
Hitman: Agent 47 may provide an acceptable diversion for movement addicts. But everyone should better avoid the movie.
The Globe and Mail gave the revised film 75 points, but the verdict is also a bit sober:
It’s tempting to think that a Hitman would undermine any beauty he gains by his habit of being silly.
You can read in our review of Hitman: Agent 47 whether the movie was one of the worst adaptations of the game ever made.
Hitman: Agent 47 – Trailer for the second movie with a lot of action
Year of Publication: 2007 | Director: John Moore | works: Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Beau Bridges | Type: Action, suspense, movie noir | Period: 1 hour 41 minutes
This action thriller is based on director John Moore from the 2001 classic Max Payne from Remedy Entertainment, but the movie didn’t capture the essence of the popular video game, and it received mixed reviews. Logical loopholes in the plot are especially criticized.
What is the matter? Three years after his family’s murder, New York detective Max Payne (Mark Wahlberg) is still searching for the killer. A trail leads him to a woman who was brutally murdered a short time later. Her sister, Mona (Mila Kunis), suspects Max of being responsible for the death. But soon both realize that they are on the same side and fall into a major drug conspiracy.
How good is the movie?
- rotten tomatoes: 15th%
- Metacritic: 31
Even Max Payne hasn’t broken the curse of feature films and their often poor ratings. Michael Serago of the Baltimore Sun gives him 38 points and writes:
What kills Max Payne is that the characters think and feel in slow motion. Half the time you work mentally at your place.
AV Club awards 42 points:
In a post-Matrix and post-John Woo world, the show shouldn’t be just a bunch of slow motion shooters.
The Seattle Post-Intelligencer gave the highest score of 67 points. The rating shows at least praise for the concept:
A silly movie with a great conceptual impact from a director who imagines better than dramatic acting.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
Year of Publication: 2010 | Director: Mike Newell | works: Jake Gyllenhaal, Ben Kingsley, Gemma Arterton | Type: fantasy, action | Period: 1 hour 58 minutes
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is based on the computer game series of the same name. For the first time, the unknown hero is called Dastan (Persian means “story, fairy tale”). Jake Gyllenhaal has been set to star, after Zac Efron and Orlando Bloom were rumored to be under consideration as well. The production budget is estimated at about 200 million US dollars.
What is the matter? Dastan lives on the streets of Persia in the sixth century until a mysterious dagger falls into his hands. This allows the wearer to reverse time. Shady characters like Sheikh Ammar (Alfred Molina) and King Nizam’s brother (Ben Kingsley) want to use the power of the dagger for their greedy and power-hungry schemes. Dastan is appointed heir to the throne by the Persian king, so the Prince of Persia embarks on an adventurous journey with Princess Tamina (Gemma Arterton) to bring the dagger to safety.
How good is the movie?
- rotten tomatoes: 37%
- Metacritic: 50
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is the highest rated Disney Plus game. Highest rating 80 points from Movieline:
The movie is worth seeing in a crowded (preferably air-conditioned) theater on a hot Saturday afternoon. Just like a lot of us watch movies when we were kids.
Most critics give 50 points. So did the New York Times:
For the most part, this is a completely painless mush. The movie is indomitably absurd – what did you expect? But the few hours in which Mr. Gyllenhaal leapt at the skin and fluttered his long eyelashes have their absurd charm.
With 20 points, Daily News gives it the worst rating on Metacritic and it doesn’t have a lot of good things to say about the movie:
An epic example of complex storytelling, cheesy thrills, and sparse execution.
