Max Payne (2008)

Max Payne is the perfect example that not every video game, good or not, deserves a big screen adaptation. I vaguely remember this movie from 2008, so watched it again the other day. By the 20 minute mark I was totally disinterested and struggled to the end. I felt there was an interesting concept here, but it was so unrealistic I didn’t care about the outcome. Mark Wahlberg may be a huge box office draw today, but everyone is allowed a crappy movie every now and then, Max Payne would fall under that category.

    1. I saw it way back in 2008, could have swore someone said it was based on a graphic novel. I should have looked it up before hand. Thankfully I can edit posts 🙂

      1. Now that I know this information, I can totally group this film with all the other terrible video game to movie adaptations! Ha ha

      2. Yeah. Bit of a shame really. The game had stuff that could work very well in an adaptation. However, the writers fucked up and the director sucked, so it just flopped.
