Max Payne Movie Review
Yet another sign that people are losing creativity and imagination has come to theatres, Max Payne yes the same Max Payne you might remember as a video game now has Mark Wahlberg staring as the once happy father to a murdered wife and child. The movie has had a good amount of hype before hitting the big screen and after seeing it I was pretty happy with the outcome. I will be honest however and say is Marky Mark wasn’t Max Payne the movie would have never had a chance to be anything except a massive bust.
The movie also star’s “that 70’s show” hottie Mila Kunis and rapper Ludacris, who has made a step up from the fast and the furious. The film is about a man (Max Payne) who lost everything when his wife and new born child were murdered in his own home, and he is now a man on a mission for revenge and salvation from this haunting event that has been done upon him. The movie can sometimes be hard to follow because even when watching the movie trailer you see what look like demons flying around, but this has nothing to do with the movie and I can tell you they play no supernatural part at all, the movie is based on real life and of course there are no demons. But what there is however is Mark Wahlberg walking around town with a shotgun the size of my leg and hell yes he does some damage!
Director John Moore does an awesome job with a lot of the scenes doing his part to make this movie as original as he possibly can so people don’t think wow this reminds me a lot of that movie “Punisher”. Overall the dialogue is a bit weak, and a few times you wonder if anyone is going to talk again during the movie ( which they do ) so I rate this movie a solid 7 out of 10. It is going to be a lot more fun if you go see it in the theatres because seeing a man get blown away by a shotgun on a 30 foot screen is just great.
