Never comes close to captivating its audience like the game did before it.

The willfully absurd action sequences help the movie slog along, but slog it does, right through to the obligatory after-credits scene to establish the possibility of a franchise.

Based on a Finnish shoot-em up video game, Max Payne is all style and little story, cheerless detective Max (Mark Wahlberg) drifting through a washed out and snowy New York in search of his wife's killer.

It held my attention, which is more than I can say for some of the so-called "art films" that come out at the end of every year.

Cinema Signals

A detective story, a pharmaceutical miracle drug and winged creatures from some demonic dimension sprouting like weeds in the spring. Too much and too artificial.

Imagine The Constant Gardener after a frontal lobotomy, and that's basically Max Payne in a nutshell.

[A]ll [the] wide-open possibilities about where this story can go get so narrowed down into something banal and bleak and ordinary that you can hardly breathe with it...

This tired, neutered action thriller won't cause you max pain, but you might wince every now and again.

John Moore directs the hell out of the action, while Jonathan Sela's glistening photography captures the snow and rain that fall on these bloody New York streets. But you'd have to be on crack not to guess the 'surprise' finale.

Among the best films adapted from videogames. Say no more.

Times [UK]

Mark Wahlberg's titular hero hasn't cracked a smile in seven years. The surprise is that he makes the lonely cop seem half human with half a dozen words and a staggering amount of violence.

The film combines ferocious self-importance with lashings of really nasty, unreflective violence.

I didn't hate Max Payne, but it's hard to summon up strong feelings of any kind about something so slick, remote and vacuum-packed you barely feel you've seen it.

Max Payne? Maximum Payne in the butt more like.

Total Film

The occasional muzzle-flare of stylish violence, but that's it. Dull, depressing and dragging its knuckles at 100 minutes, Max Payne misfires and Wahlberg's leading-man jinx continues.

Director John Moore is clearly more interested in hot babes, body tattoos and slo-mo shootings than he is in story or characterisation. Max Payne offers Min Pleasure.

Daily Mirror [UK]

No high-octane, fast-paced shoot 'em up this, Max Payne may well be the most tedious trip to a cinema you make all year. Truly, the minutes pass like hours. It's akin to one of those straight-to-DVD titles you only ever find in petrol stations.

It would be far too easy to say that max pain sums up Mark Wahlberg's latest lead role.
