With Max Payne 3 hitting soon, Rockstar usually do Film Recommendations to get people geared up for the game (as they did with L.A.Noire), so the first film up that Rockstar Recommends is John Woo's 1989 Action-Crime film "The Killer". Now even if you;re not looking forward to Max Payne 3, I'm sure we all remember how Remedy (Developers for Max Payne 1 and Max Payne 2) took huge influence from John Woo films and often made at least one joke somewhere in the games relating to John Woo or his films, so if you're a fan of the original Max Payne games, be sure to check this out to!
“The Killer” tells the tale of professional assassin, Ah Jong – with no super powers, no sixth senses – but just an almost preternatural ability to sense, react and respond to impending danger in a split-second with razor sharp reflexes and deadly accuracy with a gun of any kind. Just as quick to dispatch a hit with cold-blooded precision as he is to risk his own life and limb to protect an innocent caught in a crossfire - the brooding and conflicted Ah Jong struggles with his own conscience and with issues of guilt and loyalty in his relationships with the detective who hunts him, the longtime friend and business associate who contracts him, and the sweet lounge singer he cares for. All that said, action film aficionados will probably delight most in those insane slo-mo bullet-riddled shootouts from start to finish.
