Max Payne

Synopsis: Three years ago, NYPD detective Max Payne's wife and baby were murdered. Max gets himself transferred to the cold case office where he can continue searching for the killer who got away. He's a loner, but two people reach out to him during a fateful week: Alex, his ex-partner who may have found a clue, and BB, the security chief at the pharmaceutical company where Max's wife worked. Meanwhile, bodies are piling up, some as a result of a drug on the street that is highly addictive and, for many who take it, brings hideous hallucinations. When one of the bodies is a woman Payne was the last to see alive, her sister comes looking for him armed to the teeth; Max must move fast.

Hey, o'Brian.

- Why did you show me this?

- We found this here.

Do you know her, Max?


Let's take a ride.

- What are we doing here?

- We're getting a beer, right?

You'd rather do this in the streets?


You were with the victim last night. Your wallet was found in the alley.

If you don't wanna talk to me, they're gonna send somebody who doesn't know you

and won't care about your side of the story.

I didn't kill her, so I don't need a side.

What's going on, Max? What are you mixed up in, man? You can talk to me.

You know what they think about you at the force already, right?

Cause you hear all the questions I get about my old partner.

Good thing you got my back then, huh?

What's that supposed to mean?

It means that when you follow up on an unsolved murder,

I don't have much hope for that girl in the alley.

Is that what you think?

That I am working Michelle's case?

I did everything! Everything!

He's still out there somewhere. One of them is still out there.

That's everything, alright?

We're done here.

Come on! Max!

- Detective Max Payne.

- Shit.

Leave a message.

Max, it's me, Alex.

Miss Sax?

Sorry for your loss.


I pulled her cellphone log.

Last call was to an Owen Green.

Called him twice.

Max, it's me, Alex.

You're not gonna believe this but I think there's a connection

between that girl in the alley and Michelle's murder.

I'm heading over to your apartment right now.

Alex? You in here?




The E.R. doctors old man was a patrolman in the 45th.

Got you on a quiet floor.


- Where am I?

- Saint Mary's.

Came in looking pretty bad, Max.

What happened?

I don't... Alex...

When dispatch couldn't raise him,

they found out from Christa where he'd gone.

First unit got to you in time.
