Trivia

This is the first official remake of the psychological thriller Death Game (1977), but there is also a remake of that film - the Spanish erotic thriller Vicious and Nude (1980) (aka "Vicious and Nude") with Jack Taylor, Eva Lyberten, and Adriana Vega. See more »

Goofs

Through the pictures on the walls and the one scene in which she appears, we see that the architect's daughter is small, about 8-10 years of age. However when an adult actress appears in a "schoolgirl" outfit that obviously fit her well, the architect exclaims "those clothes are my daughter's!" See more »

Poor Neo...
23 December 2015 | by Dr_SaganSee all my reviews

There are already ...261 (!) reviews for this B (or maybe C?) movie that came out only 2 months ago and that means something, i think.

First of all this is a remake of the movie "Death Game (1977)" starring Sondra Locke and Colleen Camp. The 2 women are serving as producers in the 2015 version while Colleen Camp also stars in a minor role.

This is Camp-y movie (pun intended!) with a lot of torture horror and a couple (mild in my opinion) erotic scenes. The 2 main actresses Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas look crazy enough but Keanu Reeves's performance leave a lot to be desired. Maybe we have used to see him as a hero (from the Matrix to John Wick) and we cannot accept to watch him being lame and weak.

There is obviously a moral here, but the question "who could resist" is also strongly present.

As a movie it's OK and you might have some fun watching it, but if you can't stand movies where the "hero" does all the wrong moves maybe you should avoid it. The direction of photography is bright and that's a plus, but if you are a careful viewer you will find a lot of goofs including numerous continuity errors which could ruin some of the fun.

In the end you might want for the movie to last a couple of minutes more to see the outcome or even the true motives of what just happened...

Overall: Not as bad as most of the other 261 reviews might want you to believe. (Some of them compare Keanu Reeves's recent choices to those of Nicolas Cage, so they might be driven by some hate). See it if you want a light campy thriller for the evening.
