Fast Paced, but I'm Conflicted...
on July 7, 2013
Suicide Game is professional and fast-paced but it lacks heart and fully realized characters. It feels like a treatment for a Quentin Tarantino movie. I kept reading to find out how it would all play out, but it was curiosity, not investment, that drove me to read on. I'm not one of those readers who need to love the characters, but these were all loathsome. Each and every one was awful. The men were two dimensional, at best, and the women were mere outlines of people -- the kind of sketches that need actors to fill in the rest of the persona. That being said, I kept reading and wanted to know what Rausch would do with this motley crew of unhappy, unlikeable, violent paper dolls. I'm conflicted about this one.
