Movies Worth Renting: Max Payne

Never having played the Max Payne games, or knowing anything about them, I went into this movie purely based on the strength of the movie trailer, which I thought looked cool. All those dark angel-type-creatures, and the dialogue (“The devil is building his army…”) gave me the impression that this movie would have a Constantine vibe to it. I don’t want to ruin the movie for anyone, but let’s just say that the trailer gave me a false impression and as a result I was kind of disappointed in the movie. It wasn’t bad by any means, but in my opinion it wasn’t worth seeing in the movie theatre – it’s more of a $5 investment than a $25+ investment.
