One Last Look at Mark Wahlberg's Max Payne!

Max Payne finally hits theaters in about a week, which means we'll finally get to see whether or not this is one of the first video game movies to break out of the mold. Fox has released a final batch of photos from the film to boost some last minute interest and I've decided to feature a few of them. Instead of posting them all below like we've seen so many times before, I put together a bit of a montage that shows us just how good this movie could be. I'm not going to say it's a solid hit (I haven't even seen it yet), but at the very least, the visual style in it is brilliant. With that said, let's take one last look at Max Payne.
It was only July when we saw the first trailer for this. Since then we've been treated to a few more great trailers and some truly stunning posters, but will all this be enough to turn this into a huge hit? Or is it just some great imagery for a bad video game movie? How many still think this looks good?
Max Payne is directed by Irish filmmaker John Moore, of Behind Enemy Lines, Flight of the Phoenix, and The Omen previously, with a screenplay written by first-time writer Beau Thorne. The film is based on the popular Max Payne series of third-person-shooter video games that first arrived in 2001. Fox is debuting Max Payne in theaters on October 17th. Will you be in theaters watching this?
