We gave it a C+

There’s nothing technically wrong with Max Payne, a Mark Wahlberg revenge thriller about a cop hunting for his wife’s killer. It’s one of the better based-on-a-videogame flicks — faint praise — but Max suffers from being kind of meh. EXTRAS The “unrated” cut doesn’t feel unrated and the making-of ?doc looks like it was shot on a camera phone. C+
