Full synopsis »
Mark Wahlberg, an actor most audiences tend to like, had the honor of starring in the horrible M. Night Shyalaman film The Happening
and the horribly reviewed video game adaptation Max Payne
in 2008. His agent should be fired after this year. Max Payne
isn't nearly as bad as reviews initially indicated, but it doesn't exactly avoid the video game adaptation curse, either.
