Max Payne

I knew this wouldn't be a tour de force action epic, but I did expect just a little awesome. What I got was a stinking pile of donkey flop. In a multi-million dollar action film, how many times has:

1. The movie started out with a 1st person VO over a black screen.

2. A new guy been transported to a different police department.

3. The grieving cop's wife slaps his ex-partner at the wake.

4. Drugs are designed and implemented to make soldiers into uber-deluxe aggro soldiers (spoiler - oops)

The list goes on and on, but Jesus, this thing also got sold to the public as something completely different as well. From all the trailers, this looks like an awesome monster movie (albeit a cheese dick Marky Mark monster sinny), But it's not, NO! Not at all! Those winged beasties in the trailers are flippin' hallucinations! Oops, another spoiler. Sorry. But really, it's for your own good if you thinking of renting this turd. About a half-hour in I decided to watch the rest at 2X with the subtitles on. T.T.F.N.

Yea I totally agree with on this. I was a big fan of the video game. Such a shame.
