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.
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

The answer is yours to make of course. But if you choose to watch a movie based off a video game abit, then you won't be disappointed in this movie about Max Payne.
The only thing I hate is that after many years after this movie, they still haven't made a sequel.
Here's the deal,
Taste is relative, but I did not enjoy this film much and really can't recommend it. Unless you really have some time you don't mind wasting and want a dark and violent video game brought to life.

This was a great deal. And don't worry about the expiration date on the iTunes Digital Copy+Windows Media Player Digital Copy that comes with this 2-disc Dvd. The Digital Copy code never expires.
I don't know about everyone because I've never played the Max Payne games but I liked this movie and it contains both the PG-13 version and the Unrated version.
You might like it too and you don't even have to buy 2 separate copies in order to watch the Unrated version. It's right there in this combo pack and the Blu-Ray combo pack.
