Critic Reviews of "Max Payne"Time OutNovember 14, 2008
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.Philadelphia InquirerOctober 23, 2008
Max Payne is a junkyard dog of a film that is true to its video-game roots even as it transcends them.Boston GlobeOctober 18, 2008
The filmmakers aim their cynicism more at us than at any government or drug company.Washington PostOctober 17, 2008
Sexy girls and lots of automatic weapons are involved in an occasionally coherent plot.USA TodayOctober 17, 2008
You can't help but wonder where the fine actor in The Departed and even Invincible has gone. It's not been a good year for Wahlberg: First The Happening, and now this.Toronto StarOctober 17, 2008
Maybe somebody decided the movie was already so convoluted and leaden that throwing in a few swooping, screeching valkyries could only help. They do not.QuickflixOctober 21, 2014
The rain in Payne falls on dialogue inane.Georgia StraightJuly 07, 2010
Some of these slow-mo-shooter moments, however, veer toward parody.3BlackChicks ReviewAugust 03, 2009

Never comes close to captivating its audience like the game did before it.Paste MagazineApril 07, 2009
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.ScreenwizeMarch 24, 2009
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.
