For a movie of its type, Max Payne is a little short on excitement and heavy on pathos. Read full review
The attempts to out-Matrix "The Matrix," with bullet-time super-slo mo, are staged with such theatrics that they're unintentionally funny. This movie also has "Blade Runner" on its mind, and Raymond Chandler, but mostly it's a weak little sister to "Sin City." Read full review
The film provides ample opportunity to attack the MPAA's hypocrisy. Max Payne is a bloodbath, yet it manages a PG-13 rating by keeping the explicitness of the killings just a whisker shy of what would be necessary for an R. Read full review
Max Payne couldn't be more appropriately named. Sitting through this stylish-looking but derivative, vacuous and bullet-riddled movie inflicts maximum pain. Read full review
A banal revenge melodrama-cum-detective story, but fans of the video game on which it is based should not be alarmed. Read full review
If you stay and watch the endless end credits, there's a short scene that hints a sequel is coming. That's what I call real pain. Read full review
With its flat story, numbed-out protagonist, and faux artistic lighting and set design - everything is dark or moody or darkishly moody or moodily dark - Max Payne seems a good half hour longer than its running time. Read full review
