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.
