From 1998....
15 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I sneaked out of my room to watch this on TV - i was 12...

What a great show.

4 series drama on a game based on real life killing. Enough to make anyone sit upright in their seats.

I think it portrays the world to which we are now in - it seems dated on the film now, but that was nearly 10 years ago - technophobes.

Great acting from some young stars (and old!), great plot, bad ending - what happened next?! I had the video bought for me a few years back - i still watch it frequently as well.

Some of it was filmed very basic, but with intent - and it seemed to work perfectly, perfect shots/angles, everything portrayed fantastically, in my opinion.

A must see for anyone, and Paul Bettany does a fantastic performance.
