Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Max just drags on as it drags you down. If you stay and watch the endless end credits, there's a short scene that hints a sequel is coming. That's what I call real pain.
Rotten: The moviegoers are passive hostages on a long ride they've taken so many times before. So gameboys are advised to man their PlayStations this weekend; action-movie fans in search of red meat can wait for the inevitably more graphic DVD version.
Rotten: You can't help but wonder where the fine actor in The Departed and even Invincible has gone. It's not been a good year for Wahlberg: First The Happening, and now this.
Rotten: The filmmakers aim their cynicism more at us than at any government or drug company.
Good,but Not what I was thinking.
Well This movie is pretty good.With action, flows well together,and a weird story line.If you seen the trailer you think a movie with deamons....well sorta.Its more of a drug that was made for the military to make soliders like Gods,But 99% of people who take it would see deamons and go insane! So when you see the valikers flying arouned its really people.So still a good moive Mark Walkburg played in(better then the happening).So and 4 1/2 stars out of 5 for me.
The Title: Say No More
Max Pain is what I felt while I watched this movie. It could have been so much more, as either a drama or action movie, but hairs were split and the idea was lost. They sold it in the trailer as an action flick, but there was little to be seen. It was an ok movie, better than many, but to say it was anything more than average is lying. Visually, very well done. But if you care for a storyline of any sort, I suggest going elsewhere. It's worth a rent for the action, but no more.
Destroyed the Video Game
The First PS2 game I owned was Max Payne, so I was more then excited when I heard they were making this into a film. That was until I actually saw it in the theaters. Luckily I had a free ticket, because this was a horrible movie. They spent more on the actors, then the script and production. Surprisingly the only actor I liked was LudaChris. They tried to stick to the story-line from the video game (because it was a wicked story) but they just butchered it badly. They destroyed Mila Kunis's character from the game, and basically made Mark's impression of Max Payne almost identical to the sniper he played in Shooter. We talk all the time about how our actors are losing the touch, but maybe we should start looking at the directors too, because lately it has been a string of crappy movies, and this is in the top of that list.
