Mark Wahlberg & Mila Kunis work great together, plus you have actors like Amaury Nolasco, Chris O'Donnell, Beau Bridges and Ludacris that make this movie great from start to finish.

Great Movie!! Three years ago, NYPD detective Max Payne's wife and baby were murdered. Max gets himself transferred to the cold case office where he can continue searching for the killer who got away. He's a loner, but two people reach out to him during a fateful week: Alex, his ex-partner who may have found a clue, and BB, the security chief at the pharmaceutical company where Max's wife worked. Meanwhile, bodies are piling up, some as a result of a drug on the street that is highly addictive and, for many who take it, brings hideous hallucinations. When one of the bodies is a woman Payne was the last to see alive, her sister comes looking for him armed to the teeth; Max must move fast. Exciting and Loaded with action!!!

Based on the video game from Rockstar, MAX PAYNE stars Mark Wahlberg as a New York City cop out to avenge his slain wife and child, and heaven help anyone who gets in his blood-strewn way. The trail leads him into a network of shady characters mixed up with an experimental drug that causes super strength and fearlessness, as well as wild hallucinations of winged angels and demons. As Max gets closer and closer to the truth, he finds himself the target of a massive police manhunt, and in the crosshairs of the powerful kingpin behind the racket; soon enough, the angels and demons become downright deadly. Olga Kurylenko (QUANTUM OF SOLACE) is a beautiful Russian party girl who winds up dead after a late-night visit to Max's pad; her assassin sister (Mila Kunis) first goes after Max, then tries to help him get some answers. Rap star Ludacris (here credited as Chris Bridges) is a tough internal affairs cop investigating Payne's behavior. Shot in an impressively grungy palette of high-contrast grays and blacks, with snow and sheets of rain soaking the grim atmosphere, New York City is brilliantly morphed into something like Gotham City by way of Detroit, with a touch of X-FILES-style supernatural dread looming over everything. Director John Moore knows how to stage his action scenes: offices blow up, big chunks of rubble crush police cars, bodies and shattered glass suspend in mid-air for some of the slowest slow-mo moments in action film history. Fans of the video game and/or action movies in general should get a kick out of all the mega-loud insanity, stylish design, and Wahlberg, who never changes his mean expression, but still commands the screen.Read full review

Max Payne- A Payne Worth Having
I like the title. Max payne reflects to me the phrase, "maximum pain." A person looking to complete his life by taking a position to look into unsolved cases.
I came to buy this because I saw in advertisements a man going through an upper floor office window seemingly grabbed by a dark winged being. There was mention of Valkryie in the movie. Understanding they were winged North women warriors would take fallen soldiers' (souls) to Norse Heaven--only the most valient, brave...warrior. I was under the impression the Valkries were aiding Max Payne in the story.
There is a video game which features a slow motion aspect. The movie had at least two instances incorporating this slow motion of a couple of high action sequences.
It was not what I thought it would be but I did like the use of Valkrie incorporating the mythology with the typical down-to-Earth understanding of modern days.
