Max Payne film appears to be coming after all. The teaser is here.

My first impression of this something along the lines of "it doesn't seem to have a shred of the famous Finnish melancholy". One of the reasons I liked MP1 and MP2 was that they were depressing in a positive way - this place is f'ing dark, life sucks, but if you look at the stuff around you you'll also see funny things (starting, of course, from the very concept that the whole games are so angsty in the over-the-top way).

And, uh, the music is wrong.

Oh well, I guess I'll end up watching it anyway. And I hope Payne and Redemption, if it eventually comes, will do a Maxpaynesque film a bit better. =)
