Movie Info

Just released from prison, all Rudy Duncan (Ben Affleck) wants is to start a new life with Ashley (Charlize Theron), the girl of his dreams, whom he met through pen pal letters in prison. But between them and happiness stands her crazy brother, Gabriel (Gary Sinise), and his motley crue of deadly criminals who think Rudy has some inside information about a casino where he once had a job -- a casino Gabriel and his short-fused posse plan to take down.

    Very underrated in my eyes, Ok the acting wasn't great but even though the story did get a little silly I enjoyed the twists and the whole idea of the story, The ending was good and the touch of humour worked well too, I can see why it didn't get as much praise as I thought but it's worth watching and is pretty entertaining.

    Really dumb...the acting is terrible, the plot is dumb, and the writing is awful. On top of that, this film drags like it's pulling a 2000 lb weight. Don't see this.

    "And sometimes you do Reindeer Games." Affleck may be the bomb in Phantoms, but he totally phones it in in the holiday thriller Reindeer Games. When Rudy Duncan's cellmate, Nick Cassidy, is killed two days before his release Rudy assumes his identity and hooks up with Nick's girlfriend, but he's soon kidnapped by her brother and forced to help him pull off a casino robbery. The film has a pretty solid cast (besides Ben Affleck) that includes Gary Sinise, Charlize Theron, Danny Trejo, and Dennis Farina. But the script is replete with problems; the dialog in particular is pretty bad. However, if you can get past the script issues and the weak acting, there's a fairly interesting heist story with some good twists and surprises. While Reindeer Games has its issues, it's entertaining and delivers some fun thrills.
