The Game is a very interesting thriller. The film has so many twists and turns it will leave your head spining! There really is no logic to what happens next. Michael Douglas plays a role of a wealthy, bitter man that does not recognize a bizarre birthday present from his brother played by Sean Penn. I really enjoyed the suspense during the entire film and bought the movie because it is worth watching more than once.
If you've ever just happened to find a diamond or a hunk of gold or found out something you thought was junk was actually a priceless treasure, you'll understand how I felt when I got this movie included in a lot purchase of video tapes. As I unpacked my new tapes, I cast this one aside, never intending to watch it. Not "my kind of movie", I thought. Well, I was bored one day and wanted to watch something I hadn't seen a million times, so into the VCR it went.
WOOF! This movie was gripping and surprising from beginning to end. Just when you're sure it is about to be predictable, it twists deliciously. Fiendishly. Michael Douglas is in top form in this thriller, which is the story of a birthday "gift" gone horribly wrong.
... so why does everyone keep saying they remember their "first time" with The Game? You'll have to watch what happens to understand ... and you'll have to watch closely until the very last minute of this excellent flick. Male or female; whether or not you think action/thrillers are "your kind of movie", I highly recommend The Game. A "sleeper" masterpiece of treachery and hope and having the guts to keep going when everything in your world is lost.
An above average thriller with top tier actors this movie is well worth watching. Michael Douglas and Sean Penn deliver as expected playing off one another throughout the film. For those who enjoy twists and turns this movie is highly recommended.
Pure, twisting, curl- your- brain fun!! I bought this, because I saw it when it was first released. The plot is creative & tricky. I'm not a big fan of Sean Penn, but he's perfect for this role. You'll arrive at the end of this film, scratching your head, and feeling very satisfied, as if you got your money's worth from a new Carni ride.
This film is one of the best ever made, in my opinion. The 'Mind' Game that goes on - continually - is an incredible feat of screenplay writing, and the exciting progressive changes that occur during the entire film (definitely including the Ending!)rates it right up there with 'U-Turn'. I've wanted my Husband to watch this movie for a long time as the quality of the entire Production is 'genius'. Michael Douglas is a Great actor, producer and man who has the where-with-all and Talent and Intuition and Creative Genius, the Fantastic Crew of all production involved, and the Financial Backing to bring this fabulous story-screenplay adventure to many, many viewers who, like myself, must have thrilled to sit on the edge of my seat while viewing.
My assessment of this Movie is 10 out of 10!
