The video game to movie curse. The plotline was turtle slow and they should have sped it up since it bored the heck out of you most of the movie requiring 120X FF. Mark Wahlberg and Beau Bridges' acting was good but the slow plotline killed the movie. Mila Kunis did not impress one bit but Prison Break's Sucre - Amaury Nolasco played his part well! If you are a fan of the Max Payne video game series, then you probably should see this but I warn you that you will likely be very bored during the majority of the movie vs. the suspenseful action and puzzle driven video game like I was!

Suspend disbelief and enjoy!

"The Blu-ray Disc includes the Theatrical Version and the Unrated, Extended Cut. We watched the 'Extended Cut' and were not disappointed. They spared no change in producing this film. If you want to see the best your Blu-ray system can deliver, then look no further. It was extraordinarily beautiful---almost 3D like. I'm left to think of some of the snow scenes and how I felt I could reach out and capture the giant snowflakes---how I reached for a throw, suddenly feeling a chill.

I thought Mark Wahlberg did a splendid job portraying Payne. I was immediately drawn into the storyline with him seeking those responsible for the brutal murders of his wife and baby and how he was willing to die to avenge their deaths. His grief and anger were palpable and justifiable.

I've enjoyed Max Payne video games and I don't feel that they did an injustice to the gaming fans, with this production. I could easily translate Mark Wahlberg's character and the setting, into that of the games.

I did have to suspend disbelief regarding the pharmaceutical company and, 'the drug.' This is why I took off one star. For example, every person who takes a hallucinogenic drug will not have the same hallucinations, so I was a little baffled by the big winged creatures that appeared to be everyone's' side-effect, but they looked really cool, so I almost forgive them.

Several have said they felt there were slow moments, but I have to say I was on the edge of my seat for the entire 103 minutes. Perhaps I would not have felt so positive about the movie, itself, if it had not been such a spectacular AV experience. But considering the complete package, I do recommend you give it a try. You might want to rent it first, before buying, since this one seems rather polarizing with folks either liking it a lot, or hating it."
Max Payne (The first out of at least a sequel, I hope)

"Did you play the Max Payne computer games? Did you like the films "Sin City" and/or "300"? Are you male? Are you fond of dark brooding film noir? Are you European or influenced by European mythology? Religious? No? Then forget about this and stop reading this review, you won't like it and you'll waste a couple of hours in your, I have to say, strange life. If you did and/or are any (hopefully all) of the previous mentioned things and attributes, then reviewing this film is rather meaningless, since I can promise you that you'll love it! I've watched it several times now, and I love it. I never really understood why this film got such a relatively low rating in various media. Then again, having some 50 year old movie reviewer who's never played the games and abhors violence in movies judge whether this is a good film or not, seems pretty absurd to me.

Make sure you get the unrated extended edition, though, and preferably watch it in blu-ray on your HD television, so you get to enjoy this visually stunning film at its best. The bonus material is also very interesting, containing both a graphic novel reminiscent of the games about Michelle Payne and two rather extensive documentaries on the making of the film. The transition from game to film of course makes this something different from the games, but all in all I think they manage to capture that dark wintery feeling of one man's struggle against corporate evil steeped in references to north-Germanic mythology. Both the two Bridges and Wahlberg bring some great acting to the film, and Miss Kurylenko isn't exactly uneasy on the eyes.

Don't expect to watch the game before your eyes, but just let loose to this excellent action movie and enjoy it to the max. My girlfriend surprisingly enjoyed it as well, so I guess my male-flick theory isn't written in stone. Enjoy! 5 stars."

"Three years ago, NYPD detective Max Payne's wife and baby were murdered. Max gets himself transferred to the cold case office where he can continue searching for the killer who got away. He's a loner, but two people reach out to him during a fateful week: Alex, his ex-partner who may have found a clue, and BB, the security chief at the pharmaceutical company where Max's wife worked. Meanwhile, bodies are piling up, some as a result of a drug on the street that is highly addictive and, for many who take it, brings hideous hallucinations. When one of the bodies is a woman Payne was the last to see alive, her sister comes looking for him armed to the teeth; Max must move fast.
I thought this movie was pretty good. If you ever played the games and liked it, then you will like the movie. Great action and great visuals."
