Becky and I went to see the new Mark Wahlberg film Max Payne
at the Kerasotes theaters in Castle Rock, CO last week. I’m a bit behind in writing movie reviews, but I wanted to get this one up tonight. The MSN movie website at Max Payne describes the movie as follows:
“Rockstar Games’ double-gunned action franchise comes to the big screen thanks to director John Moore (The Omen) and Mark Wahlberg, who embodies the title character of Max Payne, a widowed cop hell-bent on delivering justice no matter what the cost as he investigates a string of killings in his city. Mila Kunis and Chris O’Donnell head up the supporting cast, with Beau Thorne adapting the screenplay for the 20th Century Fox production. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, All Movie Guide”
The Review Practical Magic dvd
Max Payne was not rated very well by the critics. They didn’t like it for the most part, but most people who I know that saw the film really liked it. Becky thought it was kind of wild and didn’t like it as much as I did. It’s very graphic and action packed. After all, it is an action flick based on a video game, but I really liked the storyline because it was so different and over the top.
If you’re a Mark Wahlberg fan you should like Max Payne since it allows him to be one of his off-the-wall characters for maximizing his personality. The story is really wild. It’s about a drug company that develops an experimental drug for the military that allows a person to see into the spiritual realm and calls force an ancient demonic force for making men in the military the ultimate fighting machines.
Wahlberg’s character is a cop who discovers that his wife who worked for this drug company is killed, along with their child because she knew too much. He’s trying to find out who was responsible for their death when he discovers this crazy drug conspiracy. It’s a creative story and I thought it was pretty cool, even though it was graphic and really wild.
I liked it more than Becky did, but we both liked it more than some of the other films we’ve seen this year.
