"Hoosiers" meets "Death Wish"
21 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Now I am not saying this is a good movie, but it definitely teeters on the edge of so bad it's good territory. When you have basketballs changing color on their way to the basket, cops shot at point blank range without even noticing a gun in their face, coach stealing not one but two cops guns which never run out of ammo, miraculous next day recovery from brain damage, ballistic matches that are disregarded as evidence, and it goes on and on. Bad acting, worse editing, and even worse continuity, confirm "Death Game" might have entertainment value as a lovable bomb. The presence of slimy Billy Drago and Richard Lynch only adds to the fun. - MERK
