Max Payne is a junkyard dog of a film that is true to its video-game roots even as it transcends them.
Wow, you clearly have never played the game if you claim this trash transcends it. Not to mention all the cast members you praise gave truly terrible performances. And what action scene do you claim exceeds "The Matrix"? There was only three over the course of the entire film, none of them good. In short, I disagree.

true to the game in a sense of visual direction but takes a diarrhea dump all over the story.

Wow, to have written such tripe this reviewer must have consumed something worse than that ridiculous looking blue drug that completed that horrible storyline.

The game was not a max pain in the hind part, in fact its quite unique and entertaining.. So please comment only about the movie if you have not played the game!

I agree with the comment. What version of max payne did you play exactly? This movie failed on every level 2 capture what the game did.

The movie is only true to the game in a visual sense, but as far as amount of action and plot, it falls terribly short making this a train wreck of a film. Your an idiot in otherwords.And Decimus, your an idiot. This is a movie based on a game, it should have more in common than the name.

People that go around calling people idiots on the internet when they can't even figure out the appropriate time to use "you're" is every bit as sad as it is ironic. That being said, I played Max Payne 1 and 2 when they first came out and I agree this movie did it no justice. For once a game came along with an actual great story and of course the movie version is terrible.

I don't see what in this utter failure the "true to its video-game roots" part. Surrealism? Nope. Charming Norse-mythology allusions? Nope. Inspiring Noir-style? Nope.
So tell me, WHERE is that "true" you are talking about?
