Max Payne: Retri­bu­tion – Fan Film bit.ly/payne­film An homage to Rem­edy and Rock­star’s third­per­son shooter tril­ogy, and made on just £1,500 of Indiegogo bud­get, this is a sur­pris­ingly adept film-noir thriller from Noc­tur­nal Pic­tures. It’s just 44 min­utes long, but packs plenty in: chore­ographed ac­tion scenes, bar-based brood­ing and devil wor­ship fea­ture – all acted, shot and edited in some style. Noc­tur­nal has taken cre­ative li­cence with the Payne games’ plot, and the pace isn’t as rol­lick­ing as a Hol­ly­wood flick, but it re­mains true to the Payne spirit – there are even whis­pers of it po­ten­tially be­com­ing a Net­flix se­ries.
