Excerpt: I was and still am a huge fan of the Max Payne series of Video Games. They are amazing achievements in the interactive gaming medium. Thank the heavens that the big-screen adaptation is a solid action film. Critics panned the film, obviously not sharing my opinion.
Summary: No spoiler here - it doesn't need one, its already spoiled! OK so I am biased, having played both games to completion several times over I loved them both - dark, gritty, twisted, film noir greatness.
Excerpt: I know nothing about the video game MAX PAYNE so I had no expectations going into the film. I must admit that I found the film entertaining and very worthwhile. No, it's not a classic film but it is an enjoyable evening's entertainment. Picture quality is very good if a bit stylized.
Summary: Mark Wahlberg plays popular game hero Max Payne, a cop who sets out to find the man who killed his wife and child, while doing so he uncovers a potential conspiracy that could lead him to the killer.
Summary: A movie shouldn't really be rated on its quality as an adaptation. Rather it should be rated on character development, storytelling, suspense, etc. Honestly, this story had potential. I was decently intrigued for about the first 15 minutes. But that just makes it worse because it got my hopes up.
Summary: I never thought it was possible to turn a story that great into such a terrible movie... First let me say I loved the games, I love action movies, crime movies, film noir and thrillers, film noir and thrillers, but I hate this film, I really hate it.
Excerpt: I played this game when it first came out, and the movie was a hard hit from the original. This movie was the second i bought from recomendation and not upset but not getting what i wanted. I like mark and all but his homerun acting didnt give me the sawed off shotgun way i would of done it.
Excerpt: Hated this movie in theaters, was let down greatly for being fan of the game. Hated it on home video just as much. One of the things I could tolerate and give the movie props for was it's cinematography, which stands out well in the video transfer.

Excerpt: That's Max Payne! well the It start off really slow. Hollywood Had the story from the Video game for the first 5 to 10 minutes. Then of course Hollywood has to add there spin on things. A little after then middle of the Movie It picked up and never looked back.
