View Full Version : Max Payne

Just got done seeing it. It's probably the best game-to-movie film I've ever seen, but it's still not perfect. Some thoughts:

1. Mark Wahlberg actually does a pretty good Max Payne, but there are some moments when he overacts a bit. Not too bad though.

2. Leaves out a couple plot moments from the game, but it actually does an okay job of sticking to the story of the game.

3. Mila Kunis/Mona are completely forgettable. I haven't played the first Max Payne in so long so I can't really remember how big of a role she had in it.

4. Not as much of a body count as I'd have liked to see.


Go see it if you're a fan of the game. If you haven't played it but like action movies in general, consider it.

WOO I just noticed I accidently posted this in video games and not movies. My bad!

Max Payne is my favorite video game of all time (well, tied for first with GTA3 and World of Warcraft), so I have been pumped ever since I first heard about the movie in like June. I'm seeing it tomorrow, I cannot wait :D
