Max Payne 3 - 8 action movie influences of Rockstars noir shooter

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.
