It feels like a TV series, but if the action beats can deliver even moderate thrills it'll be a worthwhile watch.

Liam's best friend says "Hey, I'm your best friend." Pass.

So far this formulaic spin on the classic humans-hunting-humans story plays like a standard direct-to-video genre flick

It's the very definition of fine.

Despite a fun Waltz and decent camerawork, "Most Dangerous Game" needs to add more thrills to live up to its title.

Most Dangerous Game is not the most unique take on the age old story but the high production values, top notch cast, and tensely edited chapters should keep people coming back for more.

As a pleasant and dynamic thriller with which to spend daily micro-moments is clear and precise. [Full Review in Spanish]

Teetering on the brink of parody, then diving right in, this meat-headed action thriller asks how many terrible lines of dialogue can be squeezed into eight short minutes.

Classic "it gets better"-itis at work, and guess what? Even though the Quibi format makes every bite shorter, three Quibis still feels like an awfully long time to revving your engine in park.
April 6, 2020
A dystopian, Detroit-set "Twilight Zone"-type thriller with an urban twist on "The Hunger Games."

Politics aside, The Most Dangerous Game just isn't much fun. The main characters are hopelessly generic, and the pacing doesn't work for a serialized drama.

It takes several tedious episodes to get to the exciting stuff, which is where my advance screeners cut off.
April 6, 2020
I certainly want to watch more, but where do you think one would be most likely to desperately want more of this particular story? Right where the screeners stop; right when the game starts.

The idea of hunting humans for sport has a long history, and this series comes just a few weeks after the clunky film "The Hunt" was released. But this Quibi version is a masterclass in how the medium can create gripping yet tiny chapters.
April 6, 2020
A killer co-starring performance by Christoph Waltz turns this clichéd narrative into a solid serial worth your repeat attention.
April 6, 2020
The first four chapters are frustratingly light on visceral excitement or tick-tock suspense... but it's fun to see Waltz ham it up and the story finally kicks into high gear at the end of the fourth episode.
April 6, 2020
The premise is given a sleek, modern-day sheen, while two-time Oscar winner Christoph Waltz elevates the role of the veritable "gamemaker" to just the right level of frenemy.
April 6, 2020
In theory, this might sound like a cheap or manipulative way to tell a story, but in practice it's arresting and engaging.

I never thought I'd say this about a drama whose episodes are less than ten minutes a pop, but Most Dangerous Game... wastes too much time setting up its premise.
