5.0 out of 5 stars left my friends and i awake thinking, March 16, 2000
This review is from: The Game [VHS] (VHS Tape)
The Game was directed by Fight Club director David Fincher and in many ways it prepares the viewer for the twists and turns of Fight Club. Michael Douglas as control junky investment banker Nicholas Van Orton is given an invitation to "the game" by his younger brother Conrad (Sean Penn). Before Van Orton knows it the game has started and it takes him on journey where he is in the dark so to speak and he never really gets out of it until it is over. Other reviews have said that it has no sense of humor, this movie doesn't need one. it's mysterious and intellectual strength is more than enough to keep most people fixed to it. Others have said that the ending is anticlimactic. If one cannot appreciate the ending of this movie, they haven't been paying attention. If you want a movie that makes you think, this movie is for you. my friends and i started it sometime after midnight a couple years ago and we didn't sleep for an hour after it was done because it made us think that much. the movie buff will not be disappointed.

Duster you're tooo hard on the non-
committed! This is one of my most-liked M.Douglas films. Fincher definitely got my attention after his "Alien" film with this flick. Sean Penn reaffirmed my admiration for him with "The Game" as well. Overall a decent 'I didn't see it coming' flick.
