There are no rules in The Game - and that will make life very difficult for Nicholas Van Orton (Michael Douglas), a successful businessman who is always in control. Van Orton lives a well-ordered life, until an unexpected birthday gift from his brother (Sean Penn) destroys it all.
Van Orton has been enrolled in a game -"a profound life experience"- that begins quietly enough but soon erupts into a chain of devastating events. Like it or not, he must either win, or lose control of everything in his life.
David Fincher might be remembered for the likes of Seven (1995), Fight Club (1999) and recent Social Network (2010), but The Game is a great thriller that has been forgotten by many. £6.99 has to be a bargain.
