The worst action movie yet!!!
15 December 1998 | by emmSee all my reviews

Boy, have I been seeing some real action turkeys lately! Last week, I saw KICK OR DIE. A few days later, I saw LIGHTBLAST. And now, nothing could've prepared me for SURVIVAL GAME after pressing "PLAY" on my VCR. That was when I started to choke on my sandwich real bad. It's probable that Media, distributor of this film, wanted to cash in on the Chuck Norris movies with heavy publicity. The same goes for this one, with Mike taking over his father's place. I guess the Norris family tree wouldn't have been the same without him. He may seem painful with only a single blow to the abdomen, but I say "Nice try, kid!". High-impact action thrills are not what's in store, sorry to say. It's another duplicated rip-off of tough and buff "strong dude" flicks from the 80s, and does worse by the minute. An embarrassing moment comes to mind the scene with Mike and his girlfriend getting chased by criminals in a department store while the song "Louie, Louie" is playing! What's with the father getting drugged up by memories of LSD? It's best that you forget this one entirely, even if you're a Norris fan. Quite awful! Another way to drain out some precious time!
