Max Payne “Matrix lobby shoot-out” mod!

Dig it: Some guy did a Max Payne mod that replicates the lobby shoot-out scene in The Matrix. Which is particularly meta because, of course, the Matrix invented the whole slow-mo bullet thing, which Max Payne subsequently swiped and included as a fight ability: If you get caught in a hellaciously difficult shoot-out, you can jump temporarily into slow-mo to dodge the gunfire. There’s a write-up of the mod at GameSpot, and the downloadable file here.
