Yea, I assume it's based on a video game, but I had no idea it had a supernatural element. Looks kind of like a Constantine wannabe though.

I'm not a fan of Wahlberg, but it looks intriguing.

Looks like it might be good... But the supernatural element is new to me, don't remember any demons or whatever they are.

Nothing like Constantine.

It's a cop thats been framed and his wife killed. Out for revenge. The supernatual aspects refer to his own personal demons.

Ahh... I was wondering if it was that. Interesting.

I LOVED the games. I have some great memories of playing that first one, walking that red line forever and the hallway that never ended... some very cool visuals in those games. :rock

They could have picked a better lead then Wahlberg, Payne was a bit bigger and bulkier then that.

I think Wahlberg is a fine choice, and the guy is of decent size.

Is the supernatural aspect related to the visions people see when the take the Valkyrie drug in the game, leading them them to freak out and become extremely violent

This looks like it could turn out to be a damn good (maybe not perfect) adaptation of the game (one of the very few).

I wanna go play the games again.

They are Valkyries.

From what I've been reading, (not really a spoiler, especially if you played the game)

they're hallucinations. Brought on by the drug. Which is called Valkyrie.

They were not exactly in the game, but I think there was a bit of dialogue about Valkyries.

There will be a "Gamer Dedicated" Cut DVD release.

Nice comic trailer, gives me more faith in this film. And at least the Director cares enough about the game to want to NOT cut it up for theaters or bow to the MPAA. Good on him.

I'm looking forward to it, as long as it is half as good as the game story was... I'll be happy.

Does anybody know the name of the band/song in the latest trailer now airing on TV? Not Marilyn Manson. He's does the song in Trailer #1. There's a second trailer with a different band and song.

saw this yesterday in a matinee and loved it. not sure why there is so much hate going around on the net, but IMO it was a great rendition of the game.
~~one of the most notable complaints about the film was how cheesy it was...if you played any of the games you'd understand where it was coming from.

Aside from Bond, a bloodless gun fight...is well....boring. Plus I wouldnt see it anyway. I'll never give 20th Century Fox any more of my money ever again.

KitFisto
10-18-2008, 11:38 AM
Well, IMO too many directors try to use too much blood and that's supposed to make it "good". Gore does not = a good movie, but many people seem to think it does.

CelticPredator
10-18-2008, 11:58 AM
No, it doesnt...but it sure makes it 10 times more fun. Its not like Max Payne would've been a "good" movie anyway. Who's honestly going to see it for the story? If im going to see an action movie, and its full of shooting and gunplay, they better have some bloody squibs. Without it, it looks restricted, boring, and not interesting.

Alice, we may disagree(ed) a lot about the PG-13 Vs. R thing...but that kinda proved my point. Gun fighting just isnt that fun when its restricted.

Alice
10-18-2008, 01:49 PM
I wasn't talking about just the gunfights. I meant the whole movie. Could have been rated R, but I don't see where it would have helped that much.

Hmmm....then I guess it is bad.

I'll wait for the pirated.

More blood or violence wouldn't have helped. I know nothing about the story of the video game, but the movie was pretty boring and very predictable.

I guess it could have been more boring if Shyamalan had directed, but that's about the only way.

I saw it and liked it. Didn't love it, but I liked it. It really felt watered down. Like they shot it R, but the studio made them go PG-13. Some of the people getting shot, are cut rather quickly and you mostly just see them flying instead of them actually getting shot. I honestly felt this was going to be an R movie from the previews, and then all of a sudden "Rated PG-13." I was surprised.

I have no doubt there will be an unrated DVD though. :rolleyes:

yeah i agree. this movie needed to be rated R. the games were rooted in violence,gore, and profanity. having to tailor it around PG13 just neutered it IMO. i still liked it, but i remember the games being so much more "gruesome"

Saw this today---not too bad, some of it was kind of boring, but it wasn't all that bad. I think more violence would have been nice---like how Hitman was, that wasn't the best movie but it was pretty fun to watch.

10-20-2008, 09:47 AM
I went and saw it on Friday and I agree that it needed some more action but overall it wasnt a bad movie. Going R and having some more bullet time would have improved it IMO. Not as good as Hitman in the action game moives genre.

I didn't think it was a bad movie but I was dissapointed in it. For some reason it just didn't do it for me, it's definately a renter in my opinion.

CelticPredator
10-23-2008, 07:48 PM
Saw it. It sucked. Boring from start to finish. If the gun fights were bloody, and long, it may have saved the film for me....hey, if the last act has an amazing action scene, it can make the film awesome, even just for that moment....but it didnt. The action wasnt even cool.

I saw it today... a decent enough flick to catch at a matinee. Some parts were cool, but overall not must-see kind of movie.

However, I did have a fun annoyance; about 5 minutes after the movie starts some woman comes in with her friend carrying a sleeping baby! I was instantly pegging her for "mom of the year" and she did not disappoint. After about 10 minutes the kid starts crying and does so off and on for like 1/2 hour. She never takes the kid outside or leaves. So eventually I say "hey, take your kid outside already" and she replies "Mind your own business" :lol So I reply something to the effect that if I can't enjoy the movie its my business and she left mid-movie :rock

I don't care if people take a risk and bring their baby to a movie, but some movies (like this one) are not appropriate. And even if you do bring them as soon as they are a nuisance its time for your dumbass to leave :lecture

I mostly agree... but if its like a matinee of a kids movie then I'm not as bothered, but something like this was extra messed-up. Same thing happened the 2nd time I saw TDK, although that mom at least made some effort and would take the kid out. Still though, not the kind of thing youngsters should be exposed too, that movie had some f'd up stuff :lol

CelticPredator
10-25-2008, 10:24 PM
No....kids need to shut up during a kids movie as well. Kung Fu Panda was hell to watch. I dont care who its for, shut that kid up.

This one kid, had a nice bright blinking necklace on the whole movie. That was annoying.

CelticPredator

Also, kids, if you teach them well, can handle a lot. I saw Alien Resurrection in theaters when it came out....I was about 7 or so...(yes I'm young)the only thing that bothered me, was not the violence, or the Aliens (which I already adored, hence why my dad took me) it was this mother here....scared me to death until I was 12....
