For anyone who loved the games or loves the movies, don't bother watching this. The movie sucks. The pacing is weak, the story is laughable and the score is abysmal. The acting, I've seen better in high-school plays. I had high-hopes because of the previews but apparently the entire creativity budget for the movie went into the advertising. Wahlberg is passable as Max but Mona Sax's character is absolutely redundant in the movie. The GEICO gecko could have sleep walked through and no one would have been any the wiser at the end. The only redeeming bits of the movie are the locations (resemble those in the game), the graffiti and some dialogue (resemble those in the game), the ONE scene of "bullet time" and the names. Oh and btw there is a super-secret bit after the credits but it is so pointless and laughable, I have no idea why I wasted my 5 minutes sitting for SOMETHING to redeem this movie. 2.5/5 stars (only for nostalgia). Save your money. Go watch something useful. Btw, the Valkyrie trailer for Tom Cruise's movie looks BRILLIANT.
