(mbc.net) Mark Wahlberg depicts Max Payne, an NYPD homicide detective whose wife and infant child were mysteriously murdered.  His investigation leads him to a community of drug abusers addicted to a new substance named 'Valkyr.'  The drug was synthesized by Aesir pharmaceuticals for the U.S. military, in an attempt to create super strong, fearless soldiers.

Valkyr was tested on a number of men and women, but rarely had its desired effect; instead, it drove many subjects to insanity and induced severe hallucinations.  Payne's wife was an employee at Aesir, who intended to expose the scandal and was assassinated as a result.

Max Payne was nominated for a Teen Choice Award.  The picture grossed $85 million at theaters -- more than double its $35 million budget.
