Peter Jeffrey plays another joker
25 April 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Game" is the second outing for director Robert Fuest, bringing back Peter Jeffrey ("Room Without a View" and "The Joker") as yet another mastermind with a passion for games. The vengeful Monty Bristow is killing off the six members of the military tribunal that successfully prosecuted him for war crimes 20 years before, offering each an opportunity to defeat him in rigged games designed to cater to their strengths. With five unable to beat the odds, the sixth, John Steed, is too clever to play by the rules, and cheats at 'Super Secret Agent' to rescue Tara from an untimely demise inside a huge hourglass. Snakes and ladders and a stock market that really crashes, all done with a high degree of energy, and an especially gripping finale worth waiting for. Tara may not move with the balletic grace of Emma Peel, but she's right in there kicking and leaping! Other returning veterans include Garfield Morgan ("The Fear Merchants" and "Take-Over"), Anthony Newlands ("Dial a Deadly Number"), Alex Scott ("Square Root of Evil" and "Too Many Christmas Trees"), and Aubrey Richards ("The Gravediggers").
