I didn't even know they made a Max Payne film...

Looking at the message discussion (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0467197/) over at IMDB, it doesn't seem to be anything special. One guy said:

I'm a huge fan of the games and the first one is probably the most entertaining game I've ever played. Anyway, I watched it and I have to say it's nothing like the game at all, except for the cinematography, which was probably the closest thing to the game. That being said, as a standalone film it's just DECENT, nothing more. I really wish we would get a true adaption of the first game though, because this is not it really. Also for the action, it is in fact actionpacked. The last 35 mins is basically just action. It probably would've felt more exciting if they spread the action across the whole movie. Just don't expect Max Payne. Overall, I was disappointed like most people, but if you look at it as a standalone film that has nothing to do with Max Payne, I guess you'll have a decent time. 5/10

I, for one, won't be watching it...
