Max Payne

Max Payne

If you haven't played the game don't watch this movie. having played May Payne 1 and Max Payne 2 and having loved it, I enjoyed watching the movie unfold.

The tale sticks to the storyline of the game. Max Payne (Mark Wahlberg) comes home one night and finds his wife and baby girl killed. Killed by a gang high on a new drug in the market which raises aggression to a new level. Why was Payne's family killed ? Was it a random act of a drug induced gang or is there a more sinister conspiracy behind it ?

Chased by the gangsters, hunted by his own former colleagues, Max Payne turns the city into a battlefield and with a multitude of weapons from the 9 MM to the pump action shotgun, unleashes a unique style of revenge while trying to get to the truth.

The movie is no match for the game. Featuring a host of actors from Olga Kurylenko (the latest Bond girl), Chris O'Donnell, Ludacris and others, there isn't much acting to do. While Mark Wahlberg puts in a good performance as max Payne, the movie lacks the edge of the seat action we get in the game and it does not give you a storybook like unique experience like 'Sin City' did. Director John Moore does not have to do frankly, so all in all the movie is one you will forget too soon. The game though, stays on in your head !
