A Dark, Depressing film which has zero scenes containing light. The characters are stylized, uninteresting and the storyline is decent, but the movie was too over the top and fake. 1 star.
Even though Wahlberg is a bad ass. I am sad to say that this movie was kind of boring. I thought it could have been better
I thought it could have been better..I want to see Mark Walberg in better roles..because he is an incredible actor. I loved him in four brothers
"Max Payne" rules! Man, do I love this movie!!!
You won't be disappointed.
this movie was a waste of money, i think that i would rather go and see H.S.M
I don't really really care what others are saying about the movie. In my personal opinion I thought it was good
this movie absoululty sucked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I actually enjoyed this movie. I have never played the video game but was interested in it from the synopsis and went to it with my sister and her friend. Although some parts of it were boring, I really enjoyed it, especially the ending. I am buying it when it comes on VHS for sure!!!
piece of crap... i think ppl get pay to give good comment about this movie, i doubt anyone would find this movie interesting
garbage...don't waste your money..if you really want to see it..wait till the dvd comes out then you can turn it off when you realize it really is a piece of crap!
Good movie. Not enough action though
Brutal! Absolutely brutal.... I'd even say skip it when it comes to video wait till you have to sit through it on a plane or something..
I could never understand why movie ppl take a movie like max payne and ruin it ???? Like the game it self has the storyline and everything...all you had to do was follow the games outline and you have a hit..even with the bullet time....and the slow mo shoot outs. Like come one man....this was an awesome game.
I liked this movie. If people know what they are going to see, then they might like this movie. Its based off a film noir action video game, the style is very distinct and they kept it. All the action is there and translated very well. While things changed -and were expanded, which is always great- its still Max Payne, but only half of the original story. -watch the end of the credits- i can wait for the second movie.
I want my 12 bucks back.
The best videogame adaption yet.
Absolute garbage!!! Fell asleep!! Should be called just "Payne". Save your money...
I loved the game...but the movie is pretty boring. This is a PG film with no action. Save your money.
It's more of a renter than a sit through the theater. It's better to rent then you can have sex through the boring parts!!!!
a great movie loved it
Lives up to the hype and then some!
It always sucks to see something with high hopes and expectations gets ruined... Max Payne is an awesome game with an actualy really good scenario (the game) however with the movie they totaly derived that and turned it into another cheesy cop/revenge movie that weve all seen over and over again 100x times...
This movie sucks. Who are the morons that think that a bad movie is the greatest movie ever made? This people don't have a clue what a good movie is even if they smacked their face into it.
this is worse than trash, nothing happens for the first hour, you'd expect nice action in the last hour, but its all trash. don't waste your money on this!
THIS MOVIE WAS BAD, i wanted to leave
wasn't as good as i thought it was since the game was way much better
This is the best action movie of the year, but I'm more excited about HSM3 opening tomorrow!!!
Don't waste your time or money to see Mark Wahlberg ruin himself and scream like Godzilla
This is one of the most excruciating movies I've ever had to sit through. The trailers were totally misleading. The movie was super slow and boring. The story line was blah. I was so disappointed because I really wanted to see it and had high hopes.
At first I thought the story was slow...Okay I thought that the whole movie. And then when the plot and story was revealed, I was disappointed at how terribly formulaic it was. I predicted who the villain was, and that always sucks when you're able to do that.
This movie was terrible. Bad acting, horrible plot, only 2 minutes of action scenes. A total disappointment. Don't waste the money
This movie is the most action packed film of this year. Wicked! Very similar the the video game.
It wasn't as good as I thought it would be but damn Mark Wahlberg is hot.
Great adaptation for the big screen. Mark was the right pick for the role. Entertaining storyline/plot was predictable. A good one for the Blu-ray collection.
bad movie.....made for gamers only!!!!
This is the worst movie I have ever seen. A WASTE of MONEY and TIME!!! Please DONT WATCH IT! The articles that it was a great movie is misleading, it is the slowest " ACTION" so- called movie that I have seen.I regret watching it with my boyfriend though.... tsktsk
I cannot say that I liked this movie one bit..
Great, lots of action and cool cinematography!
this movie was terrible. Mark whlberg was good but the movie was a total waste to 12 dollars. slow excpet the action parts.
This film is one of the worst films I have seen this year. The movie is slow, boring and lacks any coherent direction or storyline. As a Mark Wahlberg fan who was looking forward to this movie, especially as it rated 3.57 on Tribute.ca, I forced my boyfriend to go see it with me. What a mistake!!! Save your money and time. Life is too short to waste on garbage movie making like this one.
Bullet time is sooo cool... Go watch it, some of it is filmed in Toronto, one scene in a TTC tunnel... Can't wait for Max Payne 3 on PC.
I thought this movie was great. I have played the game for over 5 years now (its fun) and a lot of the games little details are in here. Not any single adaptation movie ever gets things 100% crossed over (for whatever reason) but the most important parts are here, while changed still in the feel of Max Payne. cant wait for the extended DVD.
not bad movie a lot action
if you played the game...DO NOT SEE THIS PIECE OF CRAP..u will be heartbroken
Slow and trying to stretch out plot to much, starthad great potential but led to nothing.
great movie very stylishly made Marky mark kicks ass
