Cast / crew
After the murder of his wife and child cop Max Payne uses his time in the cold case department to help him uncover clues as to the identity of the murderer. Finally, a chance meeting with the beautiful Natasha Sax causes events to be set in motion that, unfortunately, start with Max being suspected of murder.
Remarkably dull crime thriller that makes the typical mistake of not making it’s protagonists recognisably human. And that’s before our lead character takes the drug (that always causes psychosis and / or death) for a finalé which he strides forward looking like Frankenstein’s monster. Occasionally, the movie is good-looking and the sound designers had a field day (your subwoofer will get a neighbour-hassling workout). Appropriately, Mark Wahlberg uses a single facial expression throughout the film.
This movie contains sexual swear words and fictional substance abuse and strong violence, graphic gun violence, unpleasant and gory scenes and nudity.
