# Avoid Watch a "Let's Play" of the games instead, or something. The original Max Payne 1-3 are great games, not only ground-breaking in technical perspective at their time, but also with a gripping story, and a good amount of fourth wall reflections. Movies based on video games rarely work out; but some deserve recognition. This however is a complete failure. It gives the strong impression they didn't know the source material beyond a one-page summary. So, I end my review by closing the loop to its title: Don't waste your time on this flick. Avoid it.
