Max Payne (2008)
You are in a motion picture Max ...
"The truth split my skull open, A potentially great film. All of my past was just fragmented scenes for the world to see, people whispering and muttering in the theater. I was in a motion picture but the script writer and the Hollywood actor never even played the video game. Funny as Hell, it was the most horrible thing I could think of ..." Just got home from this just now, as a die hard fan i have to unfortunately say i am very disappointed yet filled with a completeness that this character was honored on film. Marky Mark in my opinion was the wrong choice, his attitude and tone lacked the black humor of the games, i couldn't hold back this thought for at least the first 20 minutes that casting should have gone to the writer Sam Lake and spent half the budget training him to act, hell give the main role to Chris O'Donnell to resurrect his flat lining career. Chris Bridges was strong in the support role and Nicole Horne's casting was spot on. Special Effects were pretty cool, even though the game was one of the first to do the bullet time thing, in this day and age the Matrix made sure all films to follow with slow mo will be 2nd class, so no new ground was really broken.
The movie did pick up in the last half, but it was a little like flogging a dead horse ... i had already seen 1 person leave the cinema and everyone mirrored my own overbearing sense B grade-itis as the scenes kept rolling. I'll save the last gripe to last and its the most important ...
NO ORIGINAL THEME SONG ????? i was hoping they would revamp this with some Hollywood class but it was no where to be seen, for me it was what made the game and captured every inch of Max's struggle into the night, huge let down.
