Surprisingly Good
20 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Like the other reviewer mentioned, don't get "X Game" confused with "Death Tube" because they are completely different movies. Also, "Death Tube" sucked while "X Game" was good.

Four young people are kidnapped and forced to torture one another. This is definitely a step above the typical torture film because it has properly developed characters, an engaging storyline that incorporates the theme of bullying, and also some good suspense. Even the torture game itself is interesting to watch because it's unpredictable and uses a variety of exaggerated bullying tactics. The script is fairly ambitious with a lot of ground to cover in its three-part structure. The final section is very twisty, but the twists make sense and maintain one's interest despite dragging the film out a bit. There are also a few creepy moments to enjoy.
