This film took me on one psychological thrill ride after another, as I found it loaded with twists and turns from start to finish.

Michael Douglas pulled off one of his best performance as Nicholas Van Orton, a man who is approaching his birthday, upon which he receives an invitation to play a game, given to him by his brother Conrad (Sean Penn). Nicholas reluctantly agrees and soon finds out that the game is more than he was prepared for.

There are a number of appearances of shady characters to add to the blend, and you never knew who was trustworthy or what was going to happen next, this was one film that must be seen by those who enjoy never knowing for certain how a movie will end. The conclusion is certainly not predictable.

The storyline is all centred around Michael Douglas and beautifully portrayed of being the innocent individual who happens to be in the middle of a game he cannot control.

Nonetheless, a really good movie can not be pulled off by one actor, a great deal of credit should go to Sean Penn and Deborah Kara Unger for their influential portrayals in this film along with superb directing from David Fincher.

This is a top notch psychological mind trip.
The story and the lead character played by Michael Douglas start off in a control and calm manner.
But as the story progresses it just twist and turns in some very leftfield ways.
Director David Fincher is on top form her, as is lead actor Michael Douglas who is perfect in role that requires Authority and Respect.
He is very well supported by Sean Penn and Deborah Unger.
Well worth catching this if you enjoyed any of the following.
Panic Room
Fight Club

 Profound and breathtaking

This is a rollercoaster of a flim where you don't know what is real or false.
I was gripped by this film & nearly stood up and applauded when it ended. Amazing acting by all the cast & a must watch film.

It's hard to write a fair review without spoiling the great ending. Very underated film. Douglas is great as the multi millionaire business man who gets a surprise for his birthday from his brother Conrad (Sean Penn) Very cleaver film. All makes sense at the end of the film.

 Hugely under-rated thriller

This is a magnificent bit of fun with all the twists and turns that a psychological thriller should have.
All performances are great and Fincher paces it superbly - this is well worth watching.
