Very little of the movie was actually shot on greenscreen. Instead, Director John Moore opted to shoot in Toronto during the night, in order to add extra reality to his actors' reactions.
I don't believe in heaven. I believe in pain. I believe in fear. I believe in death.
When Max Payne shoots out a couple of fire sprinklers, all the sprinklers in the floor go off. Each sprinkler is designed to be activated only if the temperature under that sprinkler melts its fusible link or if the sprinkler head is physically damaged. All the other sprinklers would not be activated unless a very large fire set them off by melting their fusible links.
After the credits is an extra scene, in which Max is reunited with Mona at a bar to be shown further developments involving Aesir, implying both have more to do (setting the scene for a possible sequel).
