Max Payne
Release date: 25-02-2009
Mark Wahlberg is one of those actors that we canít help but like, even when heís in not-so-good films. With its video game pedigree, you might not have high expectations for Max Payne, but this isnít one of those not-so-good films at all. Wahlberg plays Max Payne, a NYC police detective who is obsessed with finding the murderer of his wife and daughter. But he is inadvertently implicated in the death of an assassinís sister, leading to the deadly Mona (Mila Kunis) tracking him down. But once she learns the truth, they realise that their enemy might be the same people, and they embark on a bloody battle of revenge. Stylish (taking its visual cues straight from the video game) and action packed, Max Payne may have a simple plot, but itís an enjoyable one. While the film occasionally relies on Wahlbergís charisma a little too heavily, most viewers will relish watching Wahlberg and Kunis kick seven shades of butt.
