The victim's name is Max Payne.


God that movie was awful. I had such high hopes that even if the movie was HALF as good as the game it would be ok. Leave it to Hollywood to make it absolutely horrible.

Not to sound like a prick but it was Max Payne, pg-13, how did you not see it coming?

Did they even do any of the bullet time stuff?

That shit is key!

When I saw the thread title, I thought that perhaps some of your squadron mates had gotten a little frisky with you.

I could have told you that, and I didnt see it.


Would it have been better if Burt Reynolds was in it?

Could you answer these questions/spoliers for me?

Were the demons part of a drug over dose or something?
Did MP have to run around on green lines?
Was there a pancor jack hammer?

yes no and no

ya, the PG13 thing had me worried for sure, but I thought it might just be that they watered down some of the edge of the game while the story remained intact. Not the case. Aside from names, there were very few similarities in the movie to the game. You'd see a familiar name, but the character (if they even appeared in the movie) was completely different from the game, and played a different role. For example, the ONLY mention of Vinnie Gognitti was a sign "Gognitti's Self Storage". Vinnie was nowhere to be found. Lupino was a fucking joke. Wooden, there was no Wooden. There was no inner circle, there was nothing! The word Valkyr wasn't even mentioned until the 3rd act! Ridiculous.

Plenty, I saw "Super Mario Bros.", one of the worst movies ever made.

Wait, I thought the game came out after the movie.

Now Doom. Loved the game, but I was thoroughly unimpressed by the movie. Maybe they'll come out with a Doom II. II was just as good as the first Doom, so that must mean the second movie can't be any worse than the first... right?
Link Posted: 10/17/2008 7:03:05 PM EST
the resident evil movies were... ok...

I'm trying to think of a good video game movie, and am coming up blank. It's sad, because there really are soem decent stories out there in video games (like Max Payne), but it seems that no matter what movie makers just can't seem to stick to the story. Comic book movies are so successful because they stick to the story from the comics.

Doesn't Mark Wahlberg hate guns? I won't pay to see any of his films.

It's not rape is YOU spread YOUR buttcheeks.

My 13 year old son and his best friend went to see it last night and they liked it.

I liked Tomb Raider just fine.

Link Posted: 10/18/2008 12:56:37 AM EST
Wow, I really liked it. My brother and I just watched it yesterday.

I own and really like Super Mario Bros., great movie. I was disappointed in Doom though, no fricken demons, come on!!

The only video game movie that totally sucks is House of the Dead, yeech!!

I wanted to report a rape last Friday after I got back from Vegas. Damned craps table.

Thanks for the heads-up. I was considering seeing it this weekend.

Y'all are forgetting about Street Fighter the movie.

Van Damme will round house kick you in the face.

Doom was a horrible video game based movie, however was a pretty good movie by itself.

The 1st Doom was amazing for its time

Watch the new Indiana Jones movie...now that was rape. Southpark even made an episode about it.
Link Posted: 10/18/2008 9:27:19 AM EST
Two of the most memorable games I've every played. Thanks for the movie review, I'll avoid it like I did the Doom movie and a half dozen other movies based on computer games.

Hitman was actually pretty good, if you can get past all that baldness. Sort of stands out and not in a good way.
