Big Brother just got nasty!
5 June 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Imagine the game show 'Big Brother'. Now in this version the contestants are kidnapped off the street, and not only are they playing for $5mill, they are playing for their lives!

If you liked the TV show you'll probably like this. It's not a great film but I enjoyed it. I thought generally the characters were fairly well rounded and believable, except for Dennis Hopper. :( His accent was awful and his acting just as bad. I'm actually a fan of his, but recently every time I see a film he is in I'm disappointed. (Lets hope 'Land of the Dead' is an exception)

The first act started well although I thought some of the camera work was overly arty. Some silly camera angles and close ups. By the third act the pace seemed to change and it felt rushed. In my opinion the Big Brother character should have had more of a role. There should have been tasks given out without them knowing, maybe thinking it was a way out, rather than just leaving the people to their own demise.

In conclusion, I think it's worth a look but I would wait for it on TV or rent the video.
