Cleared: Max Payne
Well, I've swung from one end of the spectrum to the other. Max Payne was awful. The pacing was bad, the Norse symbolism didn't work, and the action scenes were unexciting. Also, apparently body armor does nothing, but if you're the protagonist, it's okay, because a dozen gunshot wounds and severe hypothermia have no effect on you besides making you limp. I actually wish I had just thrown in the towel partway in instead of watching the whole thing. Ugh. Bad, bad, bad.
