After viewing this flick I had this sense that there was more to it than meets the eye or cerebral cortex...Nope. Is it entertaining and mind boggling? To a certain degree. Just don't get your hopes up. The only thing the quick and abrupt ending accomplishes is leaving the viewer cheated; Not because there should be a neat tidy happy ending but because literally the ending will have you saying "what the..."
A college girl pals around with a comic/video/music/book store owner played by Higlander's (tv series) Adrian Paul. Vern and Sara keep each other company by playing and solving riddles. However, they soon become involved in a series of deadly riddles left and led by a mysterious source. If the riddles or series of them are solved then the winner hits the jackpot by seeing what the enigmatic "design" or meaning is behind them---"see the big picture" routine (meaning of life? our universal existence? the murders? who really cares). Unfortunately, people get killed as part of the "design" and for some odd reason those who have played the game end up going nutso (or are nutso to begin with) and confessing to the murders.Unfortunately, once the viewer finds out or doesn't really find out why the killings take place (other than to continue what was started by an ancient Buddhist monk,a.k.a Nemesis) there really is nothing deep or shocking...
Also, why is it then whenever some people see an indie film they always have to read too deep into it or rave about it's greatness. When a film is bad or lacks something, it's because it is bad and lacks something...I too enjoy indie films. But, just like your mainstream Hollywood stuff some indie films cannot always escape from the fact that it was bad or lacking.

It beat my expectations I can say that much. Actually I thought it was really good while I was watching it, I was very interested in the story line and how it would end. BUT unfortunately they go ahead and ruin it with basically no ending. You are left with too many questions. It just leaves you hanging, which would be fine if they were planning on making a sequel, but we know thats not happening. So I have it at 3 stars, I took a star off because of the ending.

What has a dopey girl, a dorky guy, a desperate cop/father, a dense shop owner, two demented loons, and a dreary plot? Write your answer in blue on any available wall, because it's all part of the design. What design? THE DESIGN!

At first, I was hoping for a nice tatted tea cozy or a cross stitch sampler, but no, the design in question tends to lean towards vague implications on a grand scale that only a few disillusioned nincompoops could comprehend. The answer to THE design inevitably led to death, madness, and incarceration. Not many options there, but you can also add boredom on a level few strive for, managing to make a 92 minute faux-thriller-flick feel like an endurance race uphill and in the dark. It didn't help that most of the burden of this sparse plot landed on Carly Pope, whose blank expression didn't amount to much in the way of a performance. She posed like a mannequin throughout, moving like a top model on a runway in Paris every time she was called on to walk any great distance. It was amusing for the first few minutes, tedious by the end. This was no damsel in distress; this was a girl on a rampage of disinterest. Apathy is what sunk this project.

I barely made it through one viewing, definitely not a keeper.

A good premise, ruined by poor acting and a worse ending. Nothing is answered.

I sat through the whole thing, hence 2 stars. I kept waiting for it to take off,
but it never did. Sara ( Carly Pope ) is wooden almost beyond belief, if you
accept what is happening to her.

Good idea ruined by bad writing and direction.

Nemesis Game is a smart "indie" thriller, with more-than"indie" qualities. It is the story of a young woman, Sara Novak, who is a college student. Sara (Carly Pope) spends her time at a shop with Vern (Adrian Paul). At this shop Vern and Sara play games and solve riddles. That is the basic premise of Nemesis Game.
The acting in Nemesis Game is amazing. Carly Pope is great in this film. Her facial expressions add a lot to the character. Adrian Paul, who I have never seen in anything before, is also a fine actor. He plays the character of Vern very well. Rena Owen plays the insane murderer, Emily Gray. Rena takes this film to a whole new level. Her character is so in depth that I can't picture anyone else playing it. Brendan Fehr is also great, playing the mysterious "skateboarder," but his character has much more to do with the film. Ian McShane is also great as Sara's dad. The supporting cast (including: Jay Baruchel and Vanessa Guy) are also great. I do not think this film could have been better cast. The people in charge of casting this film did a wonderful job.
Jesse Warn, first time film director, directed Nemesis Game. He did a wonderful job. He also wrote the screenplay, which is so amazing. I think a director cares more about a film, and how it turns out when they write the script. The producers of this film also do an amazing job.
The plot of Nemesis Game plays out very well. So many things that you see in the beginning of the film do not seem important, but later in the film they will play a key role. The plot also has its share of twists, and that is always great in a film. You can never guess what will happen next, and you will probably even have a hard time guessing the answers to the many riddles used in the movie.
