4. Man on Fire
Another film by Mr. Scott with familiar visuals and thematic touches would be Man on Fire. Denzel Washington plays an alcoholic ex-military man turned bodyguard for a wealthy family in Mexico City. He finds a new reason to live (and kill) when his young charge is abducted. Not only do Max Payne 3 and Man on Fire has similar story threads, both use on-screen text for emphasis and style.
