Max Payne - Nostalgia Critic

  • Published on Jan 2, 2019
  • It made an awesome game, but the film version brought on a different kind of pain. Nostalgia Critic checks out Max Payne.

    Max Payne is a 2008 neo-noir action thriller film based on the video game series of the same name developed by Remedy Entertainment and published by Rockstar Games. It was written by Beau Thorne and directed by John Moore. The film stars Mark Wahlberg in the title role as Max Payne, Mila Kunis as Mona Sax, Ludacris as Jim Bravura, and Beau Bridges as BB Hensley.

    Mel Gibson would have been a perfect Max Payne (see "Payback").
    The movie unfortunately focused on the wrong aspects of the Payne story plus it was miscast in all departments. "Max Payne" is a perfect example how casting can kill a movie.

    I heard this movie was supposed to be bad, but i actually liked it. But than it was the unrated version that i saw and I don't know how different it is in comparison to the PG-13 version.

    Was so disappointed when I watched this movie. What was so wrong they couldn't do the story line like the game. Changed people around and the whole concept. This is why game movies don't do well.

    No Max Heat joke? Porn parody of Max Payne within the original game. Seriously.

  • Frederixus Grand Maximus

    It is very sad to know that some independent film maker (I think from Poland) was already making a film that was much more like video games, but it was forbidden to make this film and use the name Max Payne . So that Hollywood came up with its own version. With Mark Wahlberg. And it is insane to think that they have managed to put it that way, even with the creator and writer Sam Lake involved.

    14:50 - Ugh! Mark, could you at least try to look happy and not look weird?

    In the movie, Jack Lupino has a lot of screen time but he is boring as hell, in the game he appears less than 30 minutes but damn he has so much personality, he is over-the-top and crazy as a goat.
