Last night I watched two different Mark Wahlberg movies, Max Payne and The Happening. I’m usually a big fan of his movies, but these were not two of his better efforts in my opinion. The storylines were okay, but they just didn’t connect like some of his other movies I’ve enjoyed.
Max Payne was a movie that came from a video game. It kind of reminded me of the darkness and revenge of original The Crow with Brandon Lee.
The Happening carried on with M. Night Shyamalan freakiness in storyline, but the acting was just okay. In my opinion the premise of the movie was a bit far-fetched, but the visual impact of the story line was quite disturbing.
Mark has had quite a productive career in Hollywood since dropping his pants and singing in his Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch musical career. I prefer his work in movies far higher over his musical endeavors.
From my perspective some of Mark Wahlberg’s best movies were the following:
- The Italian Job
- The Departed
- The Perfect Storm
What did you think about Max Payne and The Happening? Which one of Mark’s movies was your favorite? Let us know in the comments.
