Most helpful review
come on John, you are supposed to make movie hereBy Picktokyo (54 reviews) from London, England , 20 Oct 2008
[Highly rated reviewer]If you have played Max Payne game, you will agree with me that Mark Wahlberg doesn't really suits the image of a Max Payne, but that is just one of a series of a whole poor misdirection in the movie. The story is mainly based on the original video game which is popular around 4 to 5 years ago. I have to admit the setting is a whole wonderful art direction set of New York City in a middle of harsh winter and rain. It is noir and I love it. It is just about the whole action that doesnt make sense. It is like a dark rambo, with many direction flaw. For instance, many of the movie scene you will see Wahlberg shooting at the bad guys and in return the bad guys will shoot EVERYTHING with rifles which is like 3 meters away from Wahlberg (in slow motion so you can notice how far they missed), and sometimes you will see Max shooting 4 bad guys at the same time with a machine gun effect - and how weird to see Max actually holding a shotgun NOT a machine gun. And limitless ammo also applies in the movie. And moreover you will see Max being shot again and again, and he doesn't even bleed - just like the video game. Should we actually remind John Moore that actually he is making a movie not a video-game-movie? and if it is a video game it is in an 'Easy Mode'. I am totally disappointed. The best part of the movie is Olga Kurylenko.

very enjoyableBy cheesekake (1283 reviews) from uk , 18 Dec 2012personally I've never played the game so have nothing to go on except what I see on this film, and to be honest I really enjoyed it, lots of action and good stuff therein.
No real plot & weak acting!By Littlepinkie83 (10 reviews) , 10 Dec 2012The plot here was seriously weak and it didnt really make sense so seemed a bit desperate. I havent played the game myself so was simply judging it as a movie. Generally weak acting but then as the plot was dull and pointless you couldnt really expect much. Im a massive action/fantasy/adventure fan but this fell seriously short. All in all 2/10 purely for a few good CGI moments but all in all I wouldnt watch it again.
Watchable filmBy a customer , 24 Aug 2012Watchable film. The story line was along the lines of a 'who done it' style which maintained the interest. The CGI was okay, but made the story slightly unclear.
Max Payne Good Or No?By a customer , 14 Aug 2012Was an alright film, kinda got a bit confused in the middle but i suppose i enjoyed it :) :)
Wahlberg fantasyBy a customer , 19 Jul 2012Watched this because of Mark Wahlberg - not my usual choice of genre and a bit way out there but then it is a fantasy film so enjoyed it for that. It was entertainment - good v. evil and that's what most films are! Didn't know the game so no spoiler for me.
