I watched the trailer for “Max Payne” yesterday. As far as video game to movie conversions go, it looks pretty good. It’s got Mark Wahlberg in it, too, and he looks like the perfect choice for Max.
Movies made from video games have a spotty record. Really big black spots. They rarely turn out good and, if they do, they usually don’t have much in common with the game other than the name.
“Tomb Raider” wasn’t horribly awful. It had some pretty major plot holes but many people didn’t seem to notice. They were too busy being blinded by Angelina Jolie’s enhanced boobs.
I hear there’s rumors of a Pac-Man movie. Only God knows how they plan on doing that.
