Why does the synopsis to Max Payne 3......

sound exactly like the synopsis to the movie Man on Fire.

I know, I know, I posted this exact same topic over on AWA. I just find it funny as hell that they couldn't come up with a better synopsis to write for the game.
Never was a huge fan of Max Payne. Don't shoot me! Just couldn't get into it. Stories sometimes come close to others, I mean.. How many possible stories can be out there?
