Kruger makes Reindeer Games fun and Frankenheimer gives it class, clarity, and energy.
May 31, 2002
Os personagens de Jogo Duro se dividem em dois tipos: os unidimensionais e os incoerentes.
| Original Score: 2/5
March 7, 2002
Winds up a fiery knot of tangled loyalties and betrayals, with no one to root for.

"[The director's cut] is empirically better..."
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
February 27, 2001
seems always to be verging on the edge of camp, as if it were nudged just a little bit to the left it would be an all-out comedy rather than a thriller
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

This represents the worst the Hollywood system has to offer.

January 1, 2000
Narratively, the movie is similar to a casino game: you're not sure where you are and the house has the advantage.

There isn't a scene that's not an insult to the eyes.

I wish I'd had a stopwatch, to clock how many minutes are spent while one character holds a gun to another character's head and gabs.

It just vanishes from between your ears like cotton-candy in a tropical rainstorm, leaving nothing but a slightly sickly aftertaste.
January 1, 2000
Frankenheimer does make Reindeer Games a bigger experience than it might have been in anyone else's hands.
January 1, 2000
Sinks from pulpy crime-drama to silly gamesmanship.
January 1, 2000
Frankenheimer ... treats this trashy, disreputable material with a brute squareness so leaden and dour it's practically Teutonic.

January 1, 2000
A contrived, cliché riddled yawner that's got nothing going for it other than a tasty sex scene and an exploding truck.
January 1, 2000
A ludicrously convoluted, laughably hard-boiled heist movie that inspires incredulity rather than affection.
Full Review | Original Score: F
January 1, 2000
At times Reindeer Games looks as if it was directed by Frankenstein, not Frankenheimer. You want to kill it. You want to run away.
January 1, 2000
A contrived plot that expects you to believe in something far more outrageous than a plump elf who delivers gifts.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
January 1, 2000
This is one of those movies where the twists are more important than the story.
January 1, 2000
Frankeheimer shows he can still make a pretty decent action flick.
January 1, 2000
The chief idiocy of this movie, even allowing for its modest 'B' flick intentions, is its car-wreck of coincidences and contrivances.
