Story: Michael Douglas plays a wealthy banker who is called Nicholas Van Orton. He has everything you could dream off so what do you give the man who has everything? His brother who has long ago given into all kinds of addiction suddenly returns and gives him a birthday card that contains an entry card to something called Consumer Recreation Services (CRS). As this is a different present and something Nicholas cannot just buy with all his money he goes to check this CRS out. To his shock all kinds of weird and bad things happens to him after that.
Review: A classic David Fincher movie with dark tone and great music. Just like in David Fincher’s previous movie Se7en we are taken through a roller coaster with many twist and turns. A great atmosphere throughout the whole movie. A suspenseful thriller that does not rely on cheap gimmicks and tricks often seen in new movies. This movie goes back to the old stuff that makes a movie good which is a great script and believable character building.
The Game could be described as a satire on real life as how we forget about the things that really are important to us and how a crisis brings out the most basic emotions in people. Just like in Se7en you are guaranteed to be glued to the screen waiting to see the next twist.
The Game is right now number 4 on the my list of the Best Netflix Movies and is a must see if you haven’t already. Also be sure to check out the other 9 movies on the list.
