The Suckers: If The Most Dangerous Game was a porno.....
30 April 2019 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Yet another adaptation of The Most Dangerous Game (1932), but this time they decided to truly stand out from the rest.

The general gist of it is a psychotic hunter lures people into a hunt where they themselves are the prey. Here is no different, only every other scene is a sex scene.

With very graphic sex and nudity The Suckers could have an altogether different meaning. This type of film was common place in the 70's, however I'm very surprised they did this with an adaptation of a much loved classic.

Because of this there really isn't much in the way of content. The story is heavily condensed and when it's time for action it all looks terrible. It's like they cast porn actors who didn't know what to do when their clothes were on.

It's a great tale, but this is a near porn adaptation and won't appeal to people seeking the original story.

The Good:

It's at least based on a decent story

The Bad:

Awful fight scenes

T&A detracts badly from the plot

I simply cannot root for a hunter
