  • By any fair standard, this lushly produced film is a long, bumpy ride to a major letdown. show more

  • The movie's thriller elements are given an additional gloss by the skill of the technical credits, and the wicked wit of the dialogue. show more

  • On the surface, The Game is an unusually imaginative thriller that bends its offbeat plot into so many twists that you actually have to pay attention - something few Hollywood movies demand nowadays - to understand its evolution and enjoy the multiple payoffs at the end. show more
