This review is from: The Game (DVD)
"The Game" is Michael Douglas at his finest in his portrayal as a Type A workaholic at the top of his game.
His somewhat underachieving brother, portrayed by Sean Penn, gives Douglas a birthday gift in the form of a "game" where reality takes a dive and Douglas' life goes into a spin. Although there were a few areas that were a little hard to follow - the premise of this reality game is so imaginative and real. It is only when Douglas hits rock bottom that he realizes how isolated from the real world he has become and what is truly important in life.
I thought this movie was insightful and masterful. I watch it frequently and it always delivers a powerful message.
