Seattle Post-Intelligencer - Sean Axmaker
A dumb film with a great conceptual hook from a director who visualizes better than he dramatizes.

ReelViews - James Berardinelli
The film provides ample opportunity to attack the MPAA's hypocrisy. Max Payne is a bloodbath, yet it manages a PG-13 rating by keeping the explicitness of the killings just a whisker shy of what would be necessary for an R.

The A.V. Club - Scott Tobias
In a post-Matrix, post-John Woo world, a handful of slow-motion shootouts shouldn't be all that's on offer.

USA Today - Claudia Puig
Max Payne couldn't be more appropriately named. Sitting through this stylish-looking but derivative, vacuous and bullet-riddled movie inflicts maximum pain.

The Hollywood Reporter - Kirk Honeycutt
A banal revenge melodrama-cum-detective story, but fans of the video game on which it is based should not be alarmed.
