Max Payne: I don't believe in Heaven. I believe in Pain. I believe in Fear. I believe in Death.
Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):
1. This is an action movie based on a video game
2. Max Payne (Mark Wahlberg) is a detective whose driving passion is to find the people who murdered his family.
3. While following up on likely leads, he meets a young woman named Natasha, and having no etchings, he takes her home to see her tattoos
4. Things go very wrong, and he chucks her out, only to have things get much worse.
5. Payne follows the ride of the Valkyries, and is soon caught up in a web of drugs, hallucinations, lies and betrayals.
6. To be continued…
If you're in the mood for a dark, violent action movie with a script that reads like a graphic novel, then this one is for you. Look for great performances by Wahlberg, Beau Bridges, Mila Kunis, Ludacris, Chris O'Donnell, Amaury Nolasco, Olga Kurylenko and Nelly Furtado (Yes, THAT Nelly Furtado)
(Rated PG-13, but deserves a PG-17 rating.)
