Critic Reviews for Game of Death

All Critics (30) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (17) | Rotten (13)

  • A killing spree ensues, though 'spree' makes it sounds a lot more fun than Game of Death ever really gets.

    July 14, 2020 | Rating: .5/4 | Full Review…
  • The film is sure to develop a cult following among viewers in the same general age range as its protagonists. But don't expect their parents to approve.

    July 8, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Game Of Death's playful tone does land some absurdist laughs, but attempts to reconcile the film's ironic distance from its pervasive bloodshed and the serious moral conflict produced by the game's rules land with a splat.

    October 27, 2017 | Full Review…
  • "Imagine if Jumanji and Cabin In The Woods had a blood-thirsty baby. But it's a baby, so it's still pretty stupid."

    July 27, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Seven friends play a mysterious game, and with a name like "Game of Death", what do they expect? I didn't expect much, but it was bright, fun, creative, and splattered with blood.

    February 27, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The overall unlikability of the cast made a majority of the narrative frustrating and unenjoyable, with its frenetic editing compounding the irritating experience.
