Max Payne is a maverick cop - a mythic anti-hero - determined to track down those responsible for the brutal murders of his family and partner. Hell-bent on revenge, his obsessive investigation takes him on a nightmare journey into a dark underworld. As the mystery deepens, Max is forced to battle enemies beyond the natural world and face an unthinkable betrayal.
Action Adventure - Although it is based on a action-heavy video game, this effects-heavy
film is very slow and oddly action-light. The young male action
crowd is the target audience though they may not be so pleased.
Although PG-13, there is a bit of violent content and some images may
be too intense and disturbing for young children.
