Max Payne The Motion Picture


Recommended Posts

Eh.  I absolutely love the game but a movie is just plain unnecesary.  The whole point of the game is that it already emulates a bunch of movies.  If they wanted to make a john woo style action movie, they could go ahead and do that without it being based on Max Payne.  Strong characters my ass, the game had a better story than your average action game, but a tough cop that wants revenge after gangsters take out his family is not the strongest, most original concept in the world.  There is no reason for them to call the movie "Max Payne" other than to rake in extra money.  The exact same movie could be made without the license.  Plus they hired some random guy who produced a couple of TV shows?  Looks like a winner...  It'll probably be decent simply because it's just not that hard to make a good mindless action movie, especially with the billion dollars they'll thorw at it.

Problem is as well. In the game "bullet time" is a highly original new feature but in movies its been done,(see: The Matrix).

 

Plus I agree with Junk. The story is not exactly original but in the game it works because of the cool graphic art images for the cut-scenes. Can't see it working.

Love that game, its actually the last game ive finished.  No wait a min, ive beaten Diablo 2 as well.  Oh well its still up there among my favourite games.  Currently working on Freedom Force and Lemmings Revolution.

 

Movie eh?  It's gonna suck unless they use a really good actor and blow a ton of money on it.  Serioiusly tho, in order for the movie to have any kind of success, it needs to revolve around something.  The action, the story has all been done before.... Im thinking along hte lines of Gone in 60 seconds and centering on changing weapons every ten minutes.  Big scenes for every weapon change, make the public fall in love with the guns much like Gone in Sixty Seconds made people drool over cars....

 

why  am i htinking about this shit, the movie isnt gonna do this and its going to suck nuts :(

Envious you've finished it. I'm having a bit of trouble.

 

Bit embarassing but the last game I finished was 'Prince of Persia' on the Amiga 500. Not much of a gamer as you can probably guess.

 

It will inevitably suck many nuts, but I'm gonna pray.

 

Is the ending cool by the way. Don't wanna know but I'm expecting a nice twist. Maybe like him killing his own wife or something while wasted on Valkyr.

Yeah, i don't think video game movies have a good chance at being decent, but they should go ahead and make them. If we get 1 Final Fantasy for every 50 Double Dragons (shutter) then it would be worth it. I'd like to see a Zelda movie done with the kind of care and attention to detail and overall good film making of LOTR. That would rule. I think Nintendo got nervous after Mario.
