One man's haircut and nose ring
19 September 2004 | by (Boston, MA) – See all my reviews

A run of the mill revenge flick. It is basically a movie version of the hit game "Max Payne" but the story is told in a bleak and rather dull manner.

The hero goes around beating people up and teaching a kid that that is actually a bad thing to do. Pretty funny if you think about, but it manages to be half-way entertaining. Kurt Wimmer, in his pre-Equilibrium days, displays some directing talent, but this is nothing when compared to Equilibrium.

The undisputed highlight of the film is a great performance by Bruce Payne as a corrupt FBI agent. Complete with a 80's metal hairstyle and a nose ring, he makes one hell of a funny, though very improbable villain. His constant sarcasm and wit save this movie from being totally generic and uninspired. 5/10

Rated R: violence and profanity
