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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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 .
