Though in ancient mythos they were referred to in the female form.

Anyway Chris "Ludacris" Bridges as Jim Bravura, an internal affairs agent, what the fuck?!

Yes I know, but that is ancient mythos; this is modern noir. :P

And yeah, that was kinda weird, but meh, we'll see.
Max Payne is based on ancient mythos, welp!

Well, duh, but note: "based on", it's not a literal conversion, and it fits the mood better this way imo. :P

I think this looks rather promising.

Too bad they messed up Hitman. ;\

Wheh, it's been a year now? What can I say... time flies really fast, doesn't it? Should've used "current" instead of "new", but then you could just quickly change your nickname Magicman-style, and the post's content would be outdated and then I would have to update it, which isn't something I like doing since my laziness...
(Also, you've been changing your nickname back and forth a couple of times over the course of the last year, that I am sure of. And I get confused really easily.)

Anyway, the trailer looks marvelous. I will definitely watch this one when it's out in theaters, which is like a great holiday for me, cause I hardly go there more than once a year. But it will be worth it, I hope.

I was considering going to see it but not after reading this: http://kotaku.com/5064205/early-max-payne-review-horrid-dodgy-sub+standard

Sounds like a torrent out of spite and delete movie.

Stolen from comments: http://www.shortpacked.com/d/20080826.html

I never played the games before, so I'll be viewing as a movie and a movie alone, pretty much.

I'll wait to give an opinion until after I see it. ::)

Also:

"I'll assume the dialogue and sound editing are a result of Australia editing the movie anytime drugs were mentioned. "

:P
That's the problem with heroes, really. Their only purpose in life is to thwart others. They make no plans, develop no strategies. They react instead of act. Without villains, heroes would stagnate. Without heroes, villains would be running the world. Heroes have morals. Villains have work ethic.

i tend to agree with the A.V. club:

http://www.avclub.com/content/cinema/max_payne

"While it's asking too much for [Wahlberg] to save a fashionably bleak, derivative, nonsensical film like Max Payne, his tight-lipped, inaccessible performance as a detective-turned-vigilante certainly doesn't help."

Well, neither have I.
Uh... on a second thought, I'd rather (pre)order Wrath of the Lich King than Payne. I've spoiled the plot of the games to myself reading Wikipedia a while ago. Looks like fun and a great scenario for a film.

It wasn't bad, it did hold alot to the movie, the game and movie almost start the same way too...stuck with the conspiracy theory, I don't spend my time criticizing movies rather than watching them because I want to, and that is probably why I did not mind the movie.
