Max Payne (2008)
Wednesday 21st January 2009
It's time to lock and load your Home Entertainment system. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and Mark Wahlberg are bringing carnage and retribution to the small screen on the 13th April 2009 as the grizzled, trigger-happy cop, Max Payne, in the highly stylised movie adaption of the cult video-game. Hell-bent on revenge, the film follows Payne as he tears up the streets of an eerily quiet New York in a bid to find those responsible for the brutal murder of his family.
Brought to life by Director John Moore (Behind Enemy lines, The Omen) Max Payne is a rogue cop, hot on the trail of a killer and desperate for vengeance. Armed with his gun and a 'nothing to lose' mentality his investigations take him deep into a conspiracy-addled underworld, riddled with experimental drugs and unimaginable betrayals. When his inquiries bring him head-to-head with sexy Russian mobster Mona Sax (Mila Kunis; Family Guy) his mission takes a violent twist as they join forces to take down the those responsible for the deaths of his family and her sister.
John Moore's atmospheric and noir-esque take on the classic computer game unfolds in the murky back alleys and dingy night clubs of a dark and rain-lashed New York. Bathed in shadows and with supernatural enemies lurking around every corner, Max Payne is a twist-riddled, conspiracy-soaked thriller, guaranteed to keep viewers on the edge of their seats. Also starring Chris O'Donnell (Batman Forever, Scent of a Woman), Olga Kurylenko, (Quantum of Solace, Hitman) and Beau Bridges (Jerry Maguire, My Name is Earl), this Harder Cut of the original film seen in cinemas also features a cool Animated Graphic Novel.
And for all Blu-ray owners experience the full package with Picture in Picture video guides taking you into the scenes, a Director commentary, D-Box capabilities and Digital Copy of the film to download.
