The Only Movie you Will Never Guess The Ending To,
This review is from: The Game [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Anyone who claims this movie was predictable, or that the ending was a let down obviously didn't get it. I regret that there are those who didn't bother suspending their disbelief for even a second to try and grasp the whole purpose of the film.
I have reapeatedly recommended this movie to friends, telling them always, "This is the only movie I can promise you won't guess the ending to." At first watch, no matter how many times you think you've got it, you still don't. Without saying too much, the second viewing lets the purpose of the plot sink it, and your understand the sort of "suicide intervention" that takes place, as Douglas's character finally understands himself, his true motives, and his emotional health, independant of all the money in the world.
This may not make much sense to someone who has never seen this, but I don't want to ruin "The Game" for you. Buy it, watch it, play along, and you'll love it.

Agree. Also watch Oldboy for a movie with a complex ending.
