  • Critic Reviews of "The Game"

    Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader

    This 1997 thriller is fairly entertaining nonsense if all you're looking for is 128 minutes of diversion. But if you'd like something more from David Fincher, the director of Seven, don't get your hopes up.

    Todd McCarthy Variety
    March 26, 2009

    Regardless of how far one chooses to buy into The Game -- and the ending ambiguously suggests that it could go on and on -- there is no doubt as to Fincher's staggering expertise as a director and his almost clinical sense of precision.

    The film's 'message' about complacency transformed by chaos and uncertainty is hackneyed...

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle
    June 18, 2002

    The picture provides Douglas with one of his best roles. If he doesn't quite reach the bizarre heights he achieved in Falling Down, The Game makes its own demands.

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times
    January 01, 2000

    Douglas is the right actor for the role. He can play smart, he can play cold, and he can play angry. He is also subtle enough that he never arrives at an emotional plateau before the film does, and never overplays the process of his inner change.

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    As it's unspooling on screen, the film is hugely entertaining, but there are several significant plot holes that grow wider the more closely they're investigated.

    Brian Costello Common Sense Media
    February 16, 2016

    Engaging '90s thriller has lots of violence, profanity.

    Matthew Sorrento Film International
    October 18, 2012

    [N]ifty filmic style and crackpot sensibility.

    Chris Sawin
    October 06, 2012

    Well-written, expertly paced, and undeniably riveting, The Game is perhaps most impressive in the way it strips down the Nicholas Van Orton character. The whole process is very layered and each layer breaks down Nicholas even more than the last.

    Matt Brunson
    September 26, 2012

    This is one of those movies that's so tightly written and densely plotted, it leaves no room for error -- or viewer queries. Unfortunately, the questions will start flying even before the picture's over.

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide
    October 04, 2011

    Sure, it strains credulity, but it's clever, well-paced and builds to a spectacular -- if not altogether satisfying -- conclusion.
