Max Payne

Coming from a very successful game line, Max Payne is now available on the big screens director John Moore undertook this challenge, and if you look over all the movies with a game as its base storyline you would know that making such a film is not that easy, at least making it and being a good one. The storyline follows a DEA agent which had his family killed in what appeared to be a common robbery. But recent event with several murders that were made in the same way uncovered some interesting facts and ignited Max Payne interest again in the investigation of his family’s deaths. The whole movie is a web of lies that involve a major pharmaceutics company Aesir Pharmaceuticals and an experimental drug that was meant to make soldier impervious to fear. Of course the drug had a major sideefect and it was banned but always there is someone who can benefit from a mistake. Mark Wahlberg plays Max Payne quite good and the film is well plotted out, with the exception of some few bloopers and when you consider Mila Kunis also as Mona Sax along side Max you got a great combo in action wise.
The negative character is a bit doubtful but I won’t spoil the movie for you and will let you decide if this is a good movie, all what I can say is that will have a sequel 100% since the ending left many open doors for it.
