Good Games, Paint By Numbers Story
14 May 2021 | by darthmorbyvaSee all my reviews

Lets face it, the only reason you're going to see this movie is for the elaborate deaths and games. For that, I could recommend this movie, but only that. I mean the acting is bad and there are some very enjoyable moments between mostly forgettable characters but where this movie really falls apart is the story and execution of it.

If you watch enough movies of any genre you can start to see patterns when not so talented writers or filmmakers are behind the scenes because they use "tropes". I won't spoil it here but the way a particular character is introduced screams of predictability. And then about half way through the movie another moment happens for the same character and it also screams of predictability and the movie just flops it down by the end like it's supposed to be from out of nowhere.
