Three years ago, NYPD detective Max Payne's wife and baby were murdered. Max gets himself transferred to the cold case office where he can continue searching for the killer who got away. He's a loner, but two people reach out to him during a fateful week: Alex, his ex-partner who may have found a clue, and BB, the security chief at the pharmaceutical company where Max's wife worked. Meanwhile, bodies are piling up, some as a result of a drug on the street that is highly addictive and, for many who take it, brings hideous hallucinations. When one of the bodies is a woman Payne was the last to see alive, her sister comes looking for him armed to the teeth; Max must move fast.Written by

the movie is not bad at all if you haven't played the game, the mayor part of the criticism points to important characters to the game being left out or being of little importance in the movie, and, well, is nothing that can worry a person who has never played max Payne, so... whatever. the movie is entertaining, even though it makes no sense in a lot of moments, the characters was completely flat and undeveloped, and you can guess who are the bad guys since the first shot in that they appear. but, despite the fact that this is not an smart movie, all that lacks in the smartness department is compensated in the coolness area. nice effects, cool action scenes, great photography... cool movie... dumb, but cool. fun to watch, unlikely to be re-watched.
