There was a short discussion about MP3 in the *****-Thread and I am really unsure whether I like Max Payne as a fat, bald dude. They better tell a great story how he got there. If you take the MP-movie into consideration, it's a big leap too. The movie wasn't really great, but not too bad, imo. The "monsters" actually made some sense and fit into the strange, film noir setting of the game surprisingly well, imo.
The game makers hated the movie, are totally ignoring it, and not considering it canon.
