Product Description

Mark Wahlberg delivers an explosive performance in this action-packed thriller based on the legendary, hard-hitting video game. Max Payne (Wahlberg) is a maverick cop with little regard for rules and nothing left to lose. Hell-bent on revenge, he's determined to track down those responsible for the brutal murder of his family, but his obsessive investigation takes him on a nightmarish journey where dark fantasy collides with stark reality. As the mystery deepens, Max is forced to battle enemies beyond the natural world...and face an unthinkable betrayal that will drive him to the edge of his own sanity.

Amazon.com


Any film based on a first-person shooter video game should, as a rule of thumb, be full of epic shootouts on a level equal to Sergio Leone or the Wachowski Brothers, and in that regard, Max Payne is an unqualified success. Mark Wahlberg also lives up to the game's pedigree by brooding mightily as the title hero, a big city detective mourning the murder of his wife and child. Revenge is, of course, Payne's ultimate goal, and with the assistance of slinky Russian hitwoman Mila Kunis, he dishes it out in elaborate set pieces overflowing with gymnastic gun play. Viewers seeking just that and nothing more will get their money's worth from John Moore's film adaptation, and most likely be impressed by its fashionably gloomy art direction and cinematography. Those seeking a bit more than gunpowder and gristle will find Max Payne utterly derivative of a half-dozen better films (Christopher Nolan's Batman films, most notably) and violent to the point of cartoon absurdity. They may find some refuge in appealing supporting turns by Donal Logue and Chris "Ludacris" Bridges as diametrically opposed cops and Beau Bridges, who offers his usual roguish charm as Payne's former superior. --Paul Gaita

Format: Blu-ray
The Blu-ray Disc includes the Theatrical Version and the Unrated, Extended Cut. We watched the 'Extended Cut' and were not disappointed. They spared no change in producing this film. If you want to see the best your Blu-ray system can deliver, then look no further. It was extraordinarily beautiful---almost 3D like. I'm left to think of some of the snow scenes and how I felt I could reach out and capture the giant snowflakes---how I reached for a throw, suddenly feeling a chill.

I thought Mark Wahlberg did a splendid job portraying Payne. I was immediately drawn into the storyline with him seeking those responsible for the brutal murders of his wife and baby and how he was willing to die to avenge their deaths. His grief and anger were palpable and justifiable.

I've enjoyed Max Payne video games and I don't feel that they did an injustice to the gaming fans, with this production. I could easily translate Mark Wahlberg's character and the setting, into that of the games.

I did have to suspend disbelief regarding the pharmaceutical company and, 'the drug.' This is why I took off one star. For example, every person who takes a hallucinogenic drug will not have the same hallucinations, so I was a little baffled by the big winged creatures that appeared to be everyone's' side-effect, but they looked really cool, so I almost forgive them.

Several have said they felt there were slow moments, but I have to say I was on the edge of my seat for the entire 103 minutes. Perhaps I would not have felt so positive about the movie, itself, if it had not been such a spectacular AV experience. But considering the complete package, I do recommend you give it a try. You might want to rent it first, before buying, since this one seems rather polarizing with folks either liking it a lot, or hating it.

Format: DVD
I enjoyed this movie for the action and cinematography but that was about it. The gun play is fantastic, and it reminded me of the movie "Desperado," starring Antonio Banderas and Joachim Almeida (it even featured Cheech Marin as the bartender) from 10 or 15 years ago in its emphasis on fancy gun play. That much was entertaining at least.

I didn't mind that the plot was full of holes (after all, the movie is based on a video game so I wasn't expecting anything profound there),but unfortunately, the worst thing about the movie is that Wahlberg, who is certainly a talented actor and who I like, just doesn't seem that involved in the role. His whole performance is somewhat wooden, and from his past roles he's certainly capable of better. He's also a quite competent martial artist and quite athletic, reminding me of Lawrence Olivier when he was young, who used to do all his own stunts, when he broke a lot of bones. My generation only remembers Olivier from his senior years' roles as an old man such as in "The Jazz Singer," and most don't know how physical he was when he was younger.

Anyway, I ramble on. I give this movie three stars for all the great action sequences, and also the cinematography is actually excellent, and in many ways quite beautiful and aesthetic in many scenes, so I want to give whoever was in charge of the camera his due. He did a great job with what was otherwise a less than stellar vehicle for Walhberg, who I hope will get some better roles in the future since he is certainly capable of more.

Format: DVD
I've never played this game but the previews for this movie tied with Mark Wahlberg interested me. I purchased this movie without first watching. From the start I was a bit lost but the action is heavy in this movie. I choose the unrated director's cut version and it did seem like a long movie. There were several characters I had no idea who they were or what exactly they had to do with anything. I spent most of this movie wondering if there was a supernatural side to it or was it just the drug. I like Mark Wahlberg but his last couple movies have just not been what I'd call great. This movie ends on a bit of a cliffhanger (lack of better words). It leaves it open for a sequel, which I might add, I will not see. Overall, this is a movie to see, but don't own it as you won't want to watch it again.

The Unrated cut of Max Payne appears to be the same as regular Max Payne, except with all the computer graphic blood effects added back in, as well as plentiful swearing. There were a few extra miscellaneous scenes added back in, but no major additional plot points or action scenes.

"Max Payne" is great! This is how the story goes: Max Payne is a maverick cop--a mythic anti-hero--determined to track down those responsible for the brutal murders of his family and partner. Hell-bent on revenge, his obsessive investigation takes him on a nightmare journey into a dark underworld. As the mystery deepens, Max is forced to battle enemies beyond the natural world and face an unthinkable betrayal.

The cast led by Mark Wahlberg (as Max Payne) is great! The directing by John Moore (also produced) (who also directed "Behind Enemy Lines" (2001), "Flight Of The Phoenix" (2004), "The Omen" (2006, also produced) & the upcoming "Virulents" (2009) is great! The screenplay (which is based on the video game created by Sam Lake) by Beau Thorne is great!

The music by Marco Beltrami (who also did the music to "Flight Of The Phoenix" & "The Omen", also did the music to "The Eye" (2008) & "3:10 To Yuma" (2007, for which he was nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Score) & Buck Sanders (was an composer of additional music on "Flight Of The Phoenix", also was an electronic score producer, and score co-producer on "The Omen", also score co-producer on "The Eye" & "3:10 To Yuma") is excellent! The cinematography by Jonathan Sela (who also did the cinematography to "The Omen" & the upcoming "Powder Blue" (2009) is great! The film editing by Dan Zimmerman (who also did the film editing to "The Omen" & "AVPR - Aliens Vs. Predator - Requiem" (2007), he also was an first assistant editor on "Flight Of The Phoenix") is great! The casting by Mindy Marin (who also did the casting to "Juno" (2007), "Alvin And The Chipmunks" (2007), "Wanted" (2008), "The X-Files: I Want To Believe" (2008), & the upcoming "The Day The Earth Stood Still" (2008) & "Jennifer's Body" (2009) is great!

Actually, no you're not entitled to have a copy. Legally, the only person who is "entitled" to a digital copy is someone who PURCHASES the Blu Ray / DVD WITH the Digital Copy DISC. It's a separate disc that rental stores DONT get. So yes, legally, you'd be and you are out of luck- you... Read More
