MAX PAYNE (The Movie): From Video Game to the Big Screen, Mark Wahlberg as Max Payne

I have played the PC game 'Max Payne' and its sequel 'Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne'. A remarkable 'art' game that features graphical arts with elements of a film noir movie along with John Woo moves or some 'Matrix' style of gameplay. I was so engrossed with the PC game which made me create a photo of my self with Max Payne and Mona Sax (snapshot below)

Max Payne video game, just like a film noir love story, involving a fugitive undercover cop framed for murder in New York City, borrows heavily from film noir mood and techniques, from stylistic cinematography to graphic novel style cutscenes and narration.

It's only fitting that Max Payne the video game has evolved into a film noir movie.

Max Payne stars Mark Wahlberg as Max Payne and soon to hit theaters on October 17, 2008

Mark Wahlberg doesn't look anything like Max Payne in the video game but I am sure he'll do Max Payne justice with the right charisma and movie intensity.

Here's the official movie trailer of MAX PAYNE
