  • 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." show more

  • A banal revenge melodrama-cum-detective story, but fans of the video game on which it is based should not be alarmed. show more

  • For a movie of its type, Max Payne is a little short on excitement and heavy on pathos. show more
