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

Frankenheimer does make Reindeer Games a bigger experience than it might have been in anyone else's hands.

The film's action sequences explode with excitement as well as a clarity that's often missing from contemporary action vignettes.

Frankenheimer has been providing vivid lowlifes and yanking our chains in the double- and triple-cross departments, and the great action stylist does it here again with renewed energy and what appears to be redoubled glee.

You can almost feel yourself being drawn in, tricked and tossed out of every plot device. It's flawed, but gosh it's fun.

A high-octane performance from Sinise, and an even better one from Theron, who is magnetic and credible in every scene.

Reindeer Games is the sort of movie in which nothing is quite what it seems.

Houston Chronicle

The movie is often amusing, thanks to Affleck's excellent deadpan delivery of flippant lines in the face of loaded guns and to Sinise's scenery-chewing villain.

Frankenheimer directs with brisk efficiency.
