Storyline

Elliot Brindle is a bright, meek salesman, drowning in debt - and desperate as he's about to marry the love of his life. Upon receiving a phone call informing him that he's on a hidden camera game show where he must execute 13 tasks to receive a sum total cash prize of $6.2M, Elliot dismissively follows through with his first two instructions: swat the fly that is currently bothering him, then eat the fly. With thousands of dollars suddenly appearing in his bank account, Elliot remains skeptical, though comforted by the knowledge that he can stop playing at anytime if only to lose every penny that he's won. Trapped into the horrors manipulated by unseen spectators, Elliot's need to complete the game escalates as the tasks grow more extreme, to a devastating point of no return. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Prof. Edgar Solomon: A bear taking a dump asked a rabbit, "Does shit stick to your fur as a habit?" "Of course not," said the hare, "It's really quite rare," so the bear wiped his ass with the rabbit. There once was a lady named Dot who lived off of pig shit and snot. When she ran out of these, she ate the green cheese... that she grew on the sides... of her twat.

Flawed Sick Game
8 April 2016 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In New Orleans, the salesman Elliot Brindle (Mark Webber) is full of debts and expecting a promotion to get married with his girlfriend Shelby (Rutina Wesley) that is pregnant. However his unethical chief fires him and Elliot is desperate since he supports his intellectually disabled brother Michael Brindle (Devon Graye) with his health insurance. He reaches the rock bottom when his estranged racist father (Tom Bower) tells that he is going to live with him. Out of the blue, Elliot receives a phone call and a stranger invites him to participate in a game where he may win a large amount and become a millionaire provided he accomplishes thirteen tasks. Initially the skeptical Elliot needs to kill a fly and then eat it. After each task, Elliot finds the promised deposit in his bank account. He decides to accept the invitation, and the tasks become aggressive, gruesome, brutal and offensive. When Elliot decides to quit the game, he realizes that there is no return for him.

"13 Sins" is a film that uses the storyline fairly inspired in the 1997 "The Game". The film holds the attention of the viewer and entertains, but the omnipresence of the instructor of the game is impossible to believe. In addition, how could the system drop all the accusations against Elliot if he played havoc with the precinct, inclusive shooting the foot of the police captain among others atrocities? My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "13 Pecados" ("13 Sins")
