For the follow-up to his dark crime thriller SEVEN, director David Fincher decided to remain in a film noir vein. The result is THE GAME, a fast-paced cinematic roller-coaster ride that stars Michael Douglas as Nicholas Van Orton, a joyless San Francisco investment banker who receives an unusual birthday present from his estranged younger brother, Conrad (Sean Penn). The gift enrolls Nicholas in CRS (Consumer Recreation Services), a company that designs elaborate real-life games for each specific participant. As the game begins, the reluctant Nicholas becomes the victim of a series of pranks that quickly turn malicious and dangerous. Stripped of his finances and convinced that he can trust no one, Nicholas realises that this game may be an attempt to steal his fortune and leave him for dead. In a desperate bid to regain his life, Nicholas infiltrates CRS in order to uncover the secrets of the mysterious organisation. Douglas is perfect playing the uptight businessman Nicholas, cleverly riffing on his Oscar-winning performance as the cold-blooded Gordon Gekko in WALL STREET. Fincher's Kafkaesque carnival show is an exercise in taut filmmaking that mischievously pulls a seemingly endless supply of rugs out from under both Nicholas and, even more impressive, the viewer.

Fantastic movie, great price.

£2 on HD-DVD in quite a few gamestations too if anyone's looking for it..

Excellent Movie !!

Good price, but as a lover of thrillers I couldn't keep this on - I was bored and fidgety the whole way through. Think it must have been Michael Douglas :P

Much under-rated, one of my all-time favourites. Great deal!

Great price for a great film

I lost

Great film, sadly one of the worst endings ever. Brilliant price though, voted hot.

Good film, but you can only watch it once.

Super film. Didn't realise it was directed by David Fincher!

No, Blu-ray only. One of the many, many drawbacks of owning a PS3...

Just kidding. As an XBOX owner, I'll always take every opportunity to sell the benefits of HD-DVD to PS3 owners... it's all I have. lol. :thumbsup:

Couldn't disagree more

Watched this the other day, cost £2.99 in Sainsburys for the normal edition. Might have to get this too, I love Fincher, try to get the best editions of his films I can.

Have seen the middle-third of this film and liked it alot. About time I watched the whole thing. Thanks, heat added.

Absolutely brilliant film. I'll never understand why this wasn't a big box office hit.

Superb watch.

absolutely brilliant film and very underrated, hot from me.:p
