6 great Payne pics

Aug. 11, 2008by: Omar Aviles

If the first trailer for MAX PAYNE, the feature adaptation of the video game franchise of the same name starring Mark Wahlberg as the titular melancholic, brooding DEA agent out for revenge on the people who killed his family, didn't sell you on the film's badass-ness then these bad ass posters and new pics below might just do the trick. If nothing else, this is one slick looking flick. And Mila Kunis as assassin Mona Sax is one hot momma. Feel the Payne (yep, I totally said it) October 17th.

Extra Tidbit: It's been a while since I've played either "Max Payne" game so can someone explain the "Angel of Death" looking thing in the trailer and the pics above?

Third poster down: Is his handhun fully automatic or something, or is he just pulling the trigger really fast?

Lame.

Movie looks cool though.

YAHOOOOOOOOOO

There is not explanitation for the angel "of death" I would guess from the games I played them both and no sign of any angels. Mark looks really short in that shotgun picture which is annoying and I'd be annoyed if I were him not intimidating at all.

the pics look great, but they're not the movie. I'll see it since the Max Payne games are two of my favorites of all time. But so far it looks promising.

And to answer your question about the "Angel of Death", no it isnt in either of the video games. I'm guessing it has to do with the bizzare dream sequences the games had.

Looks like it could be decent.

There might have been off-handed noir-ish references to an angel of death in the game. I'm not too keen on that.

I do know that in the in-game television show "Address Unknown," they constantly referred to "the flesh of fallen angels!" So the angels might be some kind of Valkir hallucination mixing the deaths of those people with some of the parallel themes in "Address Unknown," like the game.

Angels = Valkyrie

There are a lot of references to Norse mythology in the first game. I think those crazy angels are actually hallucinations from the point when (possible SPOILER) Nicole Horne doses Max with her drug called " Valkyr". Perhaps the angels are actually really messed up visions of Valkyrie (messengers from Valhalla).

just an idea

Good and bad

I think Mark Wahlberg fits perfectly. I'm not expecting this to be great, but hopefully they'll keep it in the same vein as the game (please don't make those death angels part of reality!)

However, I can't take Mila seriously either. I'll wait and see the film first, but she just doesn't seem to fit the part. Of course, when I first heard Heath Ledger was gonna be the Joker I said "WTF are they thinking"... and we all know how that turned out :)

I agree with the 2 posts below, mila seems mis-cast in this movie. Heath became completely unrecognizable in his role, where in this movie she looks exactly like mila.

I like wahlberg, but video game movies are often a disappointment. Heres hoping this one will be good.

NIIIICE

I'm looking forward to an all out action flick so I hope they don't disapoint and try to inject a huge story into it. As for the 4th picture, is it just me or does that picture look like a TERRIBLE photoshop attempt??

roro0: why were the bourne movies good and hitman sucked? one word, STORY. even if this has a good story, mark wahlberg and mila kunis? please. recipe for disaster. unless stupid teenagers get a hard on for marky mark and mila. which they will.

video game movies usually suck, like anomaly7 already pointed out. why should this be any different? just remember Hitman. the trailer looked awesome, then it was just a pile of INCREDIBLE DUMB AND STUPID. As this will be. RANT OVER!

pYjamas: Hey dude don't get me wrong I totally agree. But i think if you're gonna have a story, either have a great one or don't have one at all. Hitman tried to have a story and we all knew how shitty that was. If they had focused on keeping it a pure adrenaline ride then I think it would have succeeded a little better. Take SHOOT THEM UP as another example. Why in the hell did they try to throw in such a horrible story into the mix of action. We all went in expecting a great actiony flick but

We all went in expecting a great actiony flick but out of nowhere, this POS story rears its ugly head at us and wrecked the whole movie.

As for this movie, I doubt they will have a good story let alone a story at all. So why even bother. The max payne games had a decent story but it was al about the bullet time and the bucket loads of bullets and bloddshed. And again, I agree, Kunis was a horrible decision. I like Wahlberg and I think he is a decent fit for the movie. Decent, nothing more. I still got my fingers crossed that they do something different with this and make it worth our time.

roro0: well, expect it to be bad and hopefully you'll be positively surprised. i can't say for sure that this is going to suck until the trailer pops out but i tried the first max payne game and it was kinda fun but my interest dropped pretty fast. and also, i prefer movies that are as real as possible so the whole bullet time seems a bit impossible but i don't know, it could work. time will tell.

Hey dude... don't worry I am expecting a turd of a movie. I hate to say this but I personally think you're right and u'll be the one saying "i told you so". I sure hope they make a decent action flick out of this. I love watching a movie with a great story but sometimes you gotta let go and check something out thats just mindless fun. Let's hope this ends up fitting that category. But hell, if there's a decent story behind this madness then why not right. We'll both enjoy it then (highly
