Storyline

Lisa, a gambler who lives for the cards. Robert, a millionaire philanthropist, Mark (Elias Koteas), a cop reaching the end of a gruesome career. Zach, a brilliant psychiatrist. Melody, a teenager battling drug addictions. Diane, a caring nurse whose patients are the only life surrounding her. What do these six people have in common? Something connects them all - each of them is on the road to self-destruction, each is truly lost. And then, something happens: they all wake up in cells in a surreal facility, without knowing how they got there or why. Are they in denial? Are they crazy? What happened? They soon discover they are not alone, when the mysterious Jacob (Pyper-Ferguson) forces them into a disturbing experiment, during which the unwilling participants come to face disturbing truths about themselves and decide each others fate in a nerve racking game of dice.

Goofs

In the beginning of the film, a child rolls a 3 on a die, so it's on top. In the next shot, the 3 is on the side of the die, facing the camera, although the old man in the scene could have moved it (his hand nears the die). However, in the next shot, same camera angle but tighter, the die now has 2 and 4 facing the camera (so the 6 is on top). In the following shot, the 3 is back on top while a 5 is now where the 4 was in the previous shot, all while the old man is loading a gun. See more »

Promising Beginning, Beautiful Cinematography, Intriguing Atmosphere and Awful Storyline with a Rip-off of "Cube" and "Saw" and Overrated Reviews
25 May 2013 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Six strangers awake in a cell in an underground facility. In flashbacks, their lives are exposed and in common, they are destroyed by their acts. Mark Murdock (Elias Koteas) is a nihilist detective that does not have any hope in his career. Lisa Meridian (Emily Hampshire) is an addicted gambler that has destroyed her marriage. Robert Moretti (Fabio Fulco) is a self-destructive millionaire that tried to commit suicide. Melody Chambers (Katie Boland) is a young prostitute addicted in drugs. Zach Emmett (Karl Pruner) is a psychiatrist that has been suffering for two years for a fatal wrong prescription to a patient. Diane Robinson (Patricia McKenzie) is a nurse that lost her two year-old child and tried to commit suicide.

Soon they learn that they have been abducted by the disturbed Jacob Odessa (John Pyper-Ferguson), who saw his father committing suicide when he was a boy. Jacob forces each prisoner to toss a dice in a deadly game of Russian roulette against another participant in a sort of trial. The survivors would have a chance to reborn in a new existence.

"Die" is a movie with a promising beginning, beautiful cinematography, intriguing atmosphere and awful storyline with a rip-off of "Cube" and "Saw" and overrated reviews. Despite the good performances, the explanation for the sick game of the deranged Jacob Odessa is brainless and ridiculous. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "Jogos Suicidas" ("Suicide Games")
