Nicholas reluctantly agrees and soon finds out that the game is more than he bargained for. I thoroughly enjoyed this film because I never knew who was trustworthy or what was going to happen next, this truly was one film that must be seen by those who enjoy never knowing for sure how a movie will turn out.

However, a really good movie can not be pulled off by one actor, a whole lot of credit should go to Sean Penn and Deborah Kara Unger for their convincing portrayals in this film.

Murphy of Variety opined that "with the outdated polemics of director Michael Winner, the banalities of Erich Segal's adaptation of a Hugh Atkinson novel, and a rather lifeless and cardboard cast, the 20th-Fox release amounts to a dull Frank Merriwell yarn, hyped a bit to the level of high-school mentality.

The more we invest in Nicholas' bank of experiences, the more we display our willing complicity with, even subservience to, a system that lets cocooned elites merely play games on an urban, even international scale.

Anton Bitel. The rational side of my brain can pick this movie apart until all that's left is incoherent threads. The movie-mad side, happy to lose control, had a hell of a good time.

David Ansen. This thriller is fairly entertaining nonsense if all you're looking for is minutes of diversion. But if you'd like something more from David Fincher, the director of Seven, don't get your hopes up.

Jonathan Rosenbaum. Regardless of how far one chooses to buy into The Game -- and the ending ambiguously suggests that it could go on and on -- there is no doubt as to Fincher's staggering expertise as a director and his almost clinical sense of precision.

He realizes she has drugged him. As he loses consciousness, she admits she is part of the scam and he made a fatal mistake saying his verification code.

Nicholas wakes entombed alive in a cemetery in Mexico. He sells his gold watch to return to the US, where he finds his mansion foreclosed and most of his possessions removed.

He is told Conrad has been committed to a mental institution due to a nervous breakdown. He retrieves a hidden gun and seeks the aid of his ex-wife.

While talking with her and apologizing for his neglect, he discovers Jim Feingold, the CRS employee who conducted his tests, is an actor working in television advertisements.

He locates Feingold and forces him to find the real CRS office. He takes Christine hostage and demands to be taken to the head of CRS. The guards begin cutting through the door.

Christine realizes Nicholas's gun is not a prop and is terrified. She frantically tells him it is a part of the game, his finances are intact, and his family and friends are waiting on the other side of the door.

He refuses to believe her. The door bursts open, and Nicholas shoots the first person to emerge—Conrad, bearing an open bottle of champagne.

Devastated over accidentally killing Conrad, Nicholas leaps off the roof but lands on a giant air cushion.

He is greeted by Conrad, who is alive, and the rest of the people from the game; everything had been staged. Conrad tells him this is his birthday present and that he arranged it to help Nicholas become a better person and embrace life.

After a birthday party with friends, Christine declines Nicholas's offer for a date as she has another job in Australia. She offers instead to have coffee with him at the airport.

Principal photography was to start in February but in early , the project was moved to PolyGram Filmed Entertainment. Mostow was no longer the director of the film but instead became an executive producer.

Fincher and Walker spent six weeks changing the tone and trying to make the story work. Michael Douglas' character was a "fashionable, good-looking Scrooge , lured into a Mission: Impossible situation with a steroid shot in the thigh from The Sting ".

What we show you is going to add up. But we don't do that. In that respect, it's about movies and how movies dole out information".

The purpose of The Game is to take your greatest fear, put it this close to your face and say 'There, you're still alive.

It's all right. Fincher intended to make The Game before Seven , but when Brad Pitt became available for Seven , that project became top priority.

Then, they approached Michael Douglas to star in the film. He was hesitant at first because of concerns that PolyGram was not a big enough company to distribute the film.

However, once on board, Douglas' presence helped get the film into production. After talking to her, he considered rewriting the character of Conrad as Nicholas' daughter so that Foster could play that role.

However, Douglas didn't like the idea and requested it to change the character to his sister, which Foster found peculiar as Douglas is almost 20 years her senior and also appeared with her in Napoleon and Samantha , when Foster was 9 years old while Douglas was Due to differences in opinions and also scheduling conflicts with Robert Zemeckis ' Contact , Foster could not appear in the film.

Once she left, the role of Conrad was offered to Jeff Bridges but he declined and Sean Penn was cast instead. Douglas thought it was a joke but when he and Fincher met her in person, they were impressed by her acting.

Principal photography began on location in San Francisco , despite studio pressure to shoot in Los Angeles which was cheaper.

The script had been written with San Francisco in mind and he liked the financial district's "old money, Wall Street vibe".

The production shot on weekends in order to have more control. Fincher utilized old stone buildings, small streets and the city's hills to represent the class system pictorially.

To convey the old money world, he set many scenes in restaurants with hardwood paneling and red leather. For the visual look of Nicholas' wealthy lifestyle, Fincher and the film's cinematographer Harris Savides wanted a "rich and supple" feel and took references from films like The Godfather which featured visually appealing locations with ominous intentions lurking under the surface.

The challenge for him was how much deception could the audience take and "will they go for 45 minutes of red herrings? The scene where Nicholas' taxi drives into the San Francisco Bay was shot near the Embarcadero , with the close-up of Douglas trapped in the back seat filmed on a soundstage at Sony Pictures Studios in a large tank of water.

The website's consensus reads: "The ending could use a little work but this is otherwise another sterling example of David Fincher's iron grip on atmosphere and storytelling.

Roger Ebert gave the film 3. He can play smart, he can play cold, and he can play angry. He is also subtle enough that he never arrives at an emotional plateau before the film does, and never overplays the process of his inner change".

Fincher, like Michael Douglas in the film's leading role, does show real finesse in playing to the paranoia of these times".

Time magazine's Richard Corliss wrote, "Fincher's style is so handsomely oppressive, and Douglas' befuddlement is so cagey, that for a while the film recalls smarter excursions into heroic paranoia The Parallax View , Total Recall ".

It's predictable, yet full of surprises. How far you get through this tall tale of a thriller before you give up and howl is a matter of personal taste.

But there's much pleasure in Fincher's intricate color schemes, his rich sense of decor, his ability to sustain suspense over long periods of time and his sense of humor".

The movie has the wit to be playful about its own manipulations, even as it exploits them for maximum pulp impact".

In his review for the San Francisco Chronicle , Mick LaSalle wrote, "At times The Game is frustrating to watch, but that's just a measure of how well Fincher succeeds in putting us in his hero's shoes".

The Game has a sunny, redemptive side that ill suits Fincher and ill serves audiences that share his former affinity for loose ends hauntingly left untied".

Most movies you get halfway through and you can kind of guess the ending. The Game you could never figure out what the ending was gonna be.

David Fincher is a very talented filmmaker. It was an extremely tough shoot, it was very long, a lot of nights.

In the Criterion edition film notes, the director was referred to as incorporating elements of the writings taken from Franz Kafka stating:.

Fincher himself has described The Game as a postmodern version of A Christmas Carol , with Nicholas as a Scrooge -like emotional miser who regains his soul after passing through a whirlwind of life-changing encounters.

If you are willing to suspend your reason, and simply enjoy the atmosphere and acting, this is a top-flight mystery with some fantastic scenes.

Fincher is a great director, and this is one of my favorite Fincher movies. I enjoy this movie much more than Seven.

I don't like the ending of either movie, but this movie has originality and some of the best atmosphere and imagery in movies.

If you don't judge it, or raise any of the MANY questions about how this "game" could have gone wrong in 10, ways, you can appreciate where they were going with this movie.

I wish there were more like it.
