Oh god... please don't EVER mention that atrocity again.

Max Payne movie looks good though. Reminds me of Matrix meets Constantine... without sh*tty Keanu.

The controls? You can bind any keys you want, I don't see how it's different than any other fps with k/b+mouse?

+1 the controls were fine.

Heard about Wahlbergs response to the SNL bit on the radio. His version was MUCH funnier IMO. And he wasn't "p!ssed", just didnt' think it was very funny.

Watching the trailer reminded me "Tell the Devil the Dime sent ya".

Are the Valkryie symbolic of his emotional torment tied to his past and the street drug? If they are actually creatures in the film then that's just stupid. I recognized several parts from the game, although the chick was misplaced.

This steaming pile of crap game was out for PS2 long before it hit the PC. I hope the movie has the part where he's running around in complete darkness on tightropes and has to know when to jump off to land on another tightrope...

speaking of video games made into movies...was doom with the rock any good? never played max payne, but there was a cool fps called rise of the triad. you could eat mushrooms and the screen would go all swirly and psychedelic.

Well, if you want to go there......

As for the console argument, been there done that, console porting ruined my favorite series of all time (UT). I found the game a simple mindless shoot-em-up linear fps. *shrug*. Was I shaken to the core? No. Did I have fun playing it, Yes (aside from the two lame walk-around-in-darkness scenes). Was I screaming for joy, no. There wasn't much to it, as has been oh, %99.999 of FPS's released in the past 10 years. HL and HL2 weren't any less linear. So don't think you have me pegged as a console fanboi.


And you still didn't answer my question about the controls.


Console porting also killed the Thief series, well that and looking glass disbanding.

Anyhow,

Oh, well if you are talking about the console version, I can't comment. I dont' play FPS games on consoles. That's just dumb...

I believe (without seeing the movie) that the Valkyries are merely symbolic and represent what the person might be imagining while high on the drug. Like in the trailer you see a guy being dragged out of a high-rise window by the creature, but in real life he is likely just jumping out as a result of being stoned.

I don't know. I'm just ready for the very dark tone and don't give sh!t attitude from Max while he systematically blows away everyone and everything in his path down total self-destruction. Slo-mo actions scenes galore!

FYI - Don't claim rip-off when Max slo-mo's his way through the lobby. That scene was taken from the game, which unabashedly ripped it from Matrix. They wanted to make the game so that you could experience the lobby scene action in a game.
