Max Payne Movie Tries To Beat Videogame Curse
Re: Max Payne Movie Tries To Beat Videogame Curse
I don't know about this one. Visually it looks great but the basic story line, a cop who goes dark after his wife & child are brutally killed, just reminds me too much of The Crow. It is hard not to make the connection between the two movies when the trailers for Max Payne prominently feature the large winged creatures.

I still have yet to see it, but a few friends have been saying I should.
Not enough bullet time in the trailers for me though....
First of alll I have to say that there is absolutely no emphasis on watched/unwatched, played/unplayed in this opinion on the movie.
I've played the games, I've watched the film.
I'm not going to draw ties between the two. I'm going to simply review my experience of watching the film, as a standalone.
Everything seemed to be going fine till the politically sensitive war on terror interrupted the filming with the wonder drug. Then it became a drugs den attack and convoluted betrayal of close characters.
But the end? What can we make of this? Max Payne uses the very drug that is contentious to all involved merely to survive, then gets out of control
yet seemingly managing to beat down the bad guys to the point where he wins against all odds. The film ends. Or does it? Max Payne has been shot to hell and back yet seems to recover fully and live in the world of his halucinagenic dreams. Just what is happening? I couldn't figure out the end and I can normally follow most convoluted storylines.
Apparently Payne star Mila Kunis is a WoW player but was not so good at the Payne game.
