i'd like to note the trailer is for an actual big budget film that looks good.

The link in the first post is for a short that will never apparently come out. :P

All the people moaning about the angels of death and whatnot on youtube and wherever need a bit of a slap. Have they never played the game?

Personally i think it looks great so far and has real potential, i hope that potential is realised.
Not dead, just the worlds worst lurker.

Its all fun and games until somebody gets a FAIL!

I think it mostly looks good.
But, he does not look like Max Payne. Aint there real actors in the comic style cut scenes of Max Payne 2?
They could have used them instead :).

Oh bummer... I didn't remember the first post because my head was just filled with joy over trailer of Max Payne so I just thought that it was the same project and thus posted link in this thread. Well, I'm sure world would have endured another Max Payne film as well and I'm pretty sure that I would have watched original topic's film as well and enjoyed it at some degree anyways but never mind if it doesn't come out I can live without it as well.

Anyway, when it comes to this trailer I really liked it. I don't mind Mark Wahlberg as Max Payne, I think that he will make it just fine. Surely there might have been people that would look more like Max Payne on games but I have always thought Max Payne as "average guy" cop that goes through hell so more important thing than visual look-a-like is his personality and I think that Mark Wahlberg can potrait the Max Payne's fell to the darkness pretty well.

That looks awesome! I hope those flying creature things are nightmares etc, the supernatural features of the games was always more.. subltle.

I see Aesir Corp., Mona in an elevator.. didn't spot any Valkyr, but I'm sure that'll be in it. Maybe those birds are meant to represent Valkyr? We'll see! No Vlad? :/

IIRC the first max payne was modeled after someone on the staff, not an actual actor.

I believe I caught a glimpse of Valkyr being injected into the guy without a shirt that screams and opens his arms out that you see throughout the trailer.

The angels appear to me as a metaphore/hallucination from those on valkyr as the angel of death coming to take them away. It looks like a cool way of doing it and avoiding a gorefest that would be a typical max payne style movie. If you notice at the end of the trailer we see a guy get pulled out a window, as the camera pans back in you can see clearly that max payne just gave him a shotgun to the chest. If you watch the guy and cut out the angel and added a blood spray, you wouldn't need to change it all - he got shotgunned out the window. I think showing the angel pull him out is just a clever way of replacing blood spray with a darker metaphore. Looks good to me!

Mark Wahlberg is a great actor (do not watch the Happening, however, trees want to kill us? fo.) and Max Payne being a great game and story goes without saying, so i am crapping my pants in anticipation for this movie, i know it's going to be good. Just how good, is the question. :)

I'm with y'all. I'm really excited about it. =)

This is the type of character Wahlberg is good at playing. Hes a good actor when hes put in the right shoes. And Max Payne has such a gritty and dark atmosphere that makes it fun to watch. I think, based on the trailer, they understand that and are rolling with it. :)
