Max Payne is a 2008 action film, adapted from the popular video game franchise of the same name.
The plot will be based on the plot of the first Max Payne game, but with certain differences and some new characters.
Three years prior to the movie's beginning, tragedy struck NYPD detective Max Payne (Wahlberg) when his wife and daughter were murdered; the killers were never found.
In the present, a series of murders arises that bear resemblance to the method in which Payne's wife was killed. Investigating the matter further and realizing that the two cases are connected, Payne comes into conflict with the police department, a sister of one of the victims (Kunis), the local mafia, and a prospering drug manufacturing corporation.
