A film that shines mostly for the interesting performances by the cast of character actors.

Cinema Crazed

A guilty pleasure made memorable by a lot of good actors hamming it up as villains.

Fantastica Daily

This thoroughly absurd action flick that thinks it has some sort of social conscience, badly needs a what-the-heck-were-they-thinking smack upside the head to humble it.

Not a bad twist on "The Most Dangerous Game," but a lot more could have been done with it.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

Cheesy take-off of "The Most Dangerous Game," although it's got a lot of low-rent b-movie energy.

Audience Reviews for Surviving the Game

Some of the acting is questionable and I found the music score sometimes out of place but it was worth the watch. A lot of big stars are in this one so that helps.

Good film, but still a poor man's Hard Target.

Cole: You know why we're gonna find you Mason? Cause I can smell your stinkin' ass from here. A hilariously bad action flick that stars Ice-T as a bum, selected to participate in a man hunt on a secluded island. The story is a loose adaptation of The Most Dangerous Game and has both Rutger Hauer and Gary Busey competing for craziest actor of the year and F. Murray Abraham far away from getting his Oscar for murdering Mozart. Jack Mason: ALWAYS check the barrel.
