Editorial Reviews

Hideaki is kidnapped and when he awakens the next day, finds himself in a recreation of his old schoolroom, along with his recently reunited classmates. Trapped and held captive by mysterious hooded figures, each of them must now play a brutally violent, version of the punishment game...or face death. A twisty, horror/mystery 'mash-up' peppered with dark humor and inventive gore, director Yôhei Fukuda's ('Chanbara Beauty') shows how revenge is a dish best served cold and not very sweet - Japanese style.
Bonus Features include Original Trailer And TLA Releasing Trailers.

X-Game follows Hideaki and three of his 6th grade classmates as they are kidnapped and forced to play the X-Games- the torturous games that this class created long ago to hurt and humiliate a young girl, Mariko. I viewed this on Netflix Streaming (on 12/23/12) where it is titled "Death Tube" and has a different description. This is a brutal game, and basically a blend of Saw and Hostel, which isn't a bad thing in this case.

The story is X-Game is basically a revenge tale; a brutally bullied girl forces her attackers to play much more violent version of the game they created. They have a secret organization that captures these bullies and sets them up for their clients- like Hostel. And the purpose is to teach them a lesson on their previous actions/lifestyles- like Saw. A wheel chooses which bully gets gets tortured, and the torturing is administered by the non-chosen bullies; if they don't complete the task, one is randomly chosen to get branded with a large X. The torture in this film doesn't solely rely on gore, although some does; for example, one game forces one victim to sit on a chair full of spikes and barbed wire, another has a victim chug a ridiculous amount of milk, and a challenge has them burn the hair of another. It does have a lot of violence and has plenty of twists at the end- some are predictable, while others are not. It is, however, very long, starts off slow, and a bit confusing towards the end. The acting was decent, and I enjoyed the music (some of it reminded me of "Dead Silence").

Overall, X-Game is a brutal game of revenge, with a twisted storyline.

X Game (Yôhei Fukuda, 2010)

First off: X Game is not a movie about extreme snowboarding or anything along those lines. Here's a hypothesis for you, and I rush to add I'm pulling this solely from my memory and have done no research on it whatsoever: there's a slasher-film subgenre that arose in southeast Asia a few years back, got extremely popular, and then faded just as quickly into obscurity that seems to center around high schools. (I'm going to step a little farther out on this limb and suggest that it might have been spawned by the enduring popularity of the Ghost School [Yeogo Goedam] trilogy from Korea—Whispering Corridors, Memento Mori, and Wishing Stairs—that has since spawned a number of equally successfully sequels, including the phenomenal Voice.) I can think off the top of my head of a half-dozen or so movies that fit the bill, all Japanese and all released, if memory serves, between 2007 and 2010, I've seen along these lines. X Game is the most recent one to cross my eyes. It's not the best of the lot by any means (the aforementioned Voice pretty much, if you'll pardon the pun, rules that school), but it's not the worst, either.

Plot: A primary school teacher becomes an Internet sensation after his gory suicide is released on Youtube. The next day, the alumni from one of his classes, all of whom must have been drugged in some way, awaken in their old classroom and, after some rather painful prodding, agree to take part in X Game, a series of torture exercises that take the tactics the students used, while they were in this class some years back, to bully a classmate named Mariko. I'm sure you can see where this is going.

X Games was more of a story driven film than a gore fest although there were very brutal scenes of violence and some gore. It's a little uneven in places and very far fetched but still quite entertaining.

We never really know all of the participants in the revenge or exactly who did what to whom until the end of the film.

There are some very tense, uncomfortable moments and lots of blood but nothing that ever takes it to torture porn status. I would definitely recommend it to lovers of Asian extreme films or people that don't mind reading subtitles .
