    I see people not getting this movie in the comments. The point isn't to view this as a regular movie. It is truly an experience. The goal is to put you in the main character's head. Question his sanity and therefore you start to question everything and everybody just like he does and at the end you feel just like Douglas does. It's a movie that makes you apart of it in a way that I have never felt before. You can criticize how unrealistic a lot of it is but you're missing the point entirely... 8 years 2 months ago

    I don't mind it when films are unrealistic, as long as the unrealism "fits." The preposterous ending of The Game, as entertaining as it was, did not fit. 12 years 3 months ago

    The reason this movie didnt work for me is that its never *not* the game. Literally every tiny thing that happens is under their control so youre never surprised. Hell at one point he goes to flush the toilet I guessed correctly it would clog and overflow and it happens. So what starts off as legitimately good thrilling suspense ends up being bad infomercial-level cheesy. By the time the final surprise is revealed, it felt like an I Think You Should Leave sketch. Might as well have been Tim Robinson instead of Sean Penn. 2 years 11 months ago
