Director David Fincher followed the success of his dark and atmospheric crime thriller Seven (1995) with another exercise in stylish film noir, this time lifting the pallid atmosphere a notch to indulge in a fast-paced trip through the cinematic funhouse. Michael Douglas plays Nicholas Van Orton, a Scrooge-like San Francisco investment banker following in his father's Scrooge-like footsteps. On Nicholas's 48th birthday (the age at which his father committed suicide), his younger, free-spirited brother Conrad (Sean Penn) blows into town and gives Nicholas a special gift for "the man who has everything" -- a ticket to CRS (Consumer Recreation Services), a company that constructs games custom-fit for each participant to provide, as CRS salesman Jim Feingold (James Rebhorn) cryptically puts it, "whatever is lacking." Nicholas's secure life begins a downhill slide as CRS masterminds a series of elaborate pranks, harmless at first, that quickly become malicious and life-threatening. Stripped of financial resources and convinced that he can trust no one, Nicholas begins to wonder if CRS is a front for a more covert operation, and if the game is in fact an attempt to steal his fortune and leave him for dead. Determined to fight back alone, Nicholas infiltrates CRS in order to "pull back the curtain and meet the wizard."

This has been my fav movie since the first time I saw it. The surprise ending makes such a great twist on the plot that it will make your head spin. Also, majorly mysterious and head turning. This is easily one of the greatest movies of all time. Definately worth seeing.

The Game features a great cast lead by Michael Douglas in which movie watchers are led through a mind-twisting, suspenseful, incredibly fun movie ride.

When you add a successful, smart, Handsome, educated man A.K.A Michael Douglas in one of his TM roles, a game given to him by a sibling, infuriating events, and one helluva hot chick, you get The Game. David Fincher's amazing suspense thriller that keeps you guessing from the first end of the movie to the end. Which begs the question: Are we all in a game? ---Joe.

This is the best movie I have ever seen... It will keep you awake for the whole time and you can't guess what's gonna happen next. Highly recommended!!!!

Simply one of the worst films I have ever seen, I'm sad to say. I really wanted to like it because I LOVE Fincher's 90s films, but this just aggravated me to no end. I'm shocked, to be honest, that it got a Criterion release.
