Exceptional!! Max Payne is by far the best video game to screen adaption yet. After last years train wreck Hit man, Max Payne makes going to the movies cool again after all the dumb and stupid action thrillers that have come out this year, I found Max Payne among my favorites, It had a story and a depth of character we all can relate to in some way, Mark Whalberg play maverick cop Max Payne a cop

This movie was something of a bomb. It had no script and no story, and Wahlberg is unconvincing in the part, even he did not want to do a movie based on a mindless video game. Who cam blame him, because movies based on Video games generally do poorly in theaters. They are the B-Movies of the 21rst Century.

Maidad84 You have the worst vocabulary that I have ever seen. You spelt "scene," "most," and you used the incorrect form of their. "Their" refers to a person. I believe you meant to use the word "there." And yeah it was a good movie. One of the best video game screen adaptions I have ever seen. Oh look I spelled everything right...

slow, boring, nothing like the game which i could not for the life of me put down. Mila Kunis as a russian mob boss? WTF??! Common people, watching marky mark blast crackheads is expected, but seeing jacky from that 70's show rockin a russian accent and shooting up security guards with a gun thats as big as she is gets you nothing but a lame movie. wait for dvd if your a fan of the game,

Washington Post
This highly stylized adaptation of the popular Max Payne video game is 70 percent dark, snowy atmospherics and 30 percent loud, violent action. Full Review

The New York Times
Max's righteous anger finds various allies and targets, though it is not always clear who is which. They are played by Mila Kunis, Beau Bridges and Ludacris with just enough panache and expressiveness to uphold the (increasingly irrelevant) distinction between a movie and a video game. Full Review

USA Today
Max Payne couldn't be more appropriately named. Sitting through this stylish-looking but derivative, vacuous and bullet-riddled movie inflicts maximum pain. Full Review
James Berardinelli
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. Full Review
Justin Chang
Stylishly made, armed to the teeth and ludicrous in the extreme. Full Review
