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.

The chief idiocy of this movie, even allowing for its modest 'B' flick intentions, is its car-wreck of coincidences and contrivances.

The ho-hum thrills and coincidental mystery of these Games will likely leave you shrugging with indifference on the way out the door.

A sorry string of surprises that don't surprise.

The film's only purpose seems to be to come up with as many ludicrous plot twists as possible and see if anyone in the audience can guess how it will work itself out.

Os personagens de Jogo Duro se dividem em dois tipos: os unidimensionais e os incoerentes.

Reindeer Games is basically a test of your ability to accept a slushpile of implausible twisteroos and Tarantino-style conceits.

Watchable but sometimes quite ludicrous.

It's a heist without a plan, a crime without a brain, a thriller without a decent script.
Top Critic

A pileup of impossible-to-believe situations that just keep getting worse with every line uttered by anyone who happens to be on screen.

Continuously push the film's credibility factor to the point that those not enjoying the stupid fun will get 'eye-aches' from too much rolling occurring in that ocular region of their bodies.
