A Mass Effect 1 movie is easy to make.  Simple structure with plenty of drama/dilemmas.  Any good writer would be able to mix Shepard as both a Renegade+Paragon.  Liara would have to be the secondary protagonist aka the guide who introduces us to the galaxy with her historical knowledge as a Doctor.  Unfortunately, Tali gets shoved to the side.  Garrus+Wrex=Legolas and Gimli.  Ashley would die, imo but it could go either way.

The only reason we've seen shitty video game adaptations is because....well, video games actually have pretty shit and unmarketable stories in the first place.  ME is one of the very few exceptions.  It has a good chance of success.

In fact, the only hope for IT is a successful movie trilogy (successful film version of ME3) because BW has already failed IT with the Trilogy.  The only hope for great merchandise, future ME games, ME spinoffs, TV shows is a successful ME movie trilogy.

That being said (because I'm tired of people disregarding a potential ME movie), a bad ME film would probably be the 2nd or 3rd ones....just because of how disorganized the plots in those games were.

Kadien needs to die in the movie. It seems right for all the reasons because he seems so useless. Ash on the other had you can love and hate. Tali is probably going to be the one Shepard is going to find the information against Saren. While that happens Garrus will be investigating a similar lead with a Quarian girl, and Wrex will appear and be looking for Tali.

But what they need is Keith Davis to play Anderson.

But most likely we are going to see writers/director who haven't played the game, and will make ME movie into a fucking PG movie and have synthesis good killing is bad at the end. its raining carrots! its raining carrots! its raining carrots! its raining carrots! its raining carrots!
