Max Payne Movie Actually Looks…Good?

by Ed Lau on September 27, 2008

Right, when I first read that they were going to make a Max Payne movie, I felt that it was almost absolutely certain that it would be retarded. I mean, how many video game movies do you know of that are actually any good? The Mario movie was a travesty against humanity. The Resident Evil trilogy is forgettable at best and if you thought Hitman was good, then you deserve to be punched in the face

However, Max Payne doesn’t look half bad. For once, the producers are getting on board with the concept of the original game and the movie looks to be in the same film noir spirit, right down to the graphic novel-esque storyboards in the trailer. I think casting Mark Wahlberg is a good choice as he does sort of look like Max Payne 1.0…even though he doesn’t walk around like he’s perpetually wondering who farted.
