Films based on video games


13. Max Payne

As a video game Max Payne was an amazing package. Remedy’s shooter took the best of Hong-Kong action flicks and hard-boiled action cliches and wrapped them in a story that recycled them all to hilarious effect. It was the perfect mix of stylish shooter action and knowing satire and at the time of its release, its bullet-time gunplay made it a groundbreaking piece of entertainment. By the time the film came out, bullet-time had been used by every second film coming out of Hollywood so on screen it just looked derivative.
