[1stshowing] Max Payne Movie Trailer - Page 3

post #21 of 72
Marky Mark is a good actor, but he doesn't fit the role imo.

Wahlberg isn't dark and brooding enough. >.<

Clive Owen would have made a good Max Payne.


Watching the trailer, it looks really good, hopefully it stays true to form. Max Payne (one and two) are both excellently crafted, and the stories are great. Hopefully John Moore can pull off a decent movie.

Cool, I had forgot about this movie. I didn't know it was coming out this year (is that right??). Im excited about it but probably because I just watched The Boondock Saints last night...

anyone who doesnt know about the game would just think thats a corny name for a movie

the trailer shows aspects that resemble the movie. what looks like mona in one shot making an appearance. the vaguely noticeable storyline connections. But whats with the science fiction elements? a guy with eagle wings flying out of a window? I dont think it'll be a blockbuster. It would be if they turned the game into a direct movie. But thats never the case. Movie directors always think they can 'improve' the game storyline but it just takes it further away from what it's supposed to be. And he doesnt even look like max payne for starters. He looks too soft. Max payne is supposed to be a hardened and tormented cop. He just looks like hes in a mood.

I never expected it to live up to its name but i think this will rank alongside hitman in the movie industry. Close but yet so far. Just an excuse to use the name maybe? Max payne is a film-noir novel based story. It would do exceptionally well as an art-style movie in the way that sin city worked. It would benefit so much from that adaptation on screen. but this looks to just be a load of unecessary characters and mis-chosen cast members. Why must the main character always be chosen from the top 50 actors in the inudstry? I for one am bored of Mark Wahlberg. I think his acting diversity is very limited and doesnt suit this role atall. Just in the way that Timothy Olyphant did NOT suit the role of Agent 47 in Hitman. Angelina Jolie does not look or move like Lara Croft. I think James McCaffrey (the voice actor for max payne in the game) actually looks and sounds exactly as max payne should look. Early 40's. Mature. Dark. Not boring old Mark Wahlberg. So many people said it. But Thomas Jane would have been good for this role. Not perfect. But a damn lot better than Wahlberg. Max Payne 1 & 2 are both some of my favourite games of all time..

Darnit.. They should ban game movies..

Well this just became a must see. Anything with Marky Mark is an amazing movie and I loved the games. I wonder if they are going to put both Max Paynes in this 1 movie.

Did the max payne games have a religious undertone to them? It's been so long I can't remember.

The trailer looked to show a bit of religion.

Uwe Boll is not involved, so it may not be a total flop, LOL

Frank Miller is involved or not?
