The Game 1997

Original Title:  The Game
Duration:  128 minutes
Genre:  Thriller
Director:  David Fincher (The Social Network, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Fight Club, among others).
Cast:  Michael Douglas, Sean Penn, James Rebhorn, Deborah Kara Unger.

Personally I think a thriller is good when it keeps you in suspense all the time and you don't know what's coming up next. That's why i belive this movie is brilliant: It has all the necessary ingredients for a good movie including unexpected twists in the story.  It will keep your ass on the chair from the minute 1 until the end.


Everything begins when a lonely and embittered millionaire named Nicholas Van Orton (Michael Douglas) receives as a birthday gift from his younger brother (Sean Penn) an invitation to a sort of an exclusive club where it is promised that will change your life. Giving up to curiosity, Nicholas visits CRS (Consumer Recreation Services). Rapidly after that he discovers that he has been enrolled in a game - "a profound life experience" that begins quietly but soon erupts in a rush of devastating events.

The slow motion sequence at the end is also well done and this has got to be one of the best endings of all time.

I've seen it... I like the plot and everything... but the acting isn't the best.

Its worth viewing if you can get it for cheap/free.

Thanks for sharing. I agree, a lot of movies are predictable now even though they are of the Suspense/Thriller genre. I'm taking your word for this and watching it =).
